I'm not a 100% sure on how picky raid can be, but raid 0 is splitting the data equally to both drives, ?maybe they have to be setup in the same drive order? ?try swapping the cables?.

Everything you need for boot disc's.

Re-check all cables and recheck bios for all settings to be enabled.

Do not forget to load the SATA/RAID drivers at the first windows install screen.

Did you press F6 when the windows install prompted you?

I think that's his problem...he has no floppy in the rig and no bootable cd to write the files to.

What type of system did the raid drives come out of? With out a floppy you will not be able to install windows on a raid array. Is the array showing as healthy in the raid controllers BIOS?
