Disabling RAID in the BIOS kind of defeats the point of going RAID.....

Disable it, and try with 1 hard drive. If it works, then theres a problem probably with your raid drivers.

This is OCN, we don't settle for sacrificing anything.

There is always a solution to these things.

OP, a few questions.

What revision are the drives? 7200.11? .12?
What controller is your mobo using?
What are the specs of the RAID you're setting up? Level, stripe size, etc? Short stroking at all?
Are you sure the drives are in 100% good health (have you run the manufacturers tests)?
Is your copy of the windows install disc retail/oem, or a burned image?
Are you using any slipstreamed driver packs/service packs on your disc?
Are you overclocking currently at all?

-its a burned image of xp
-the raid setup is short stroked 50 gigs each drive (100 gb total)
-the raid drivers were downloaded 1 hour ago from intel site
-no overclocking
-2 x WD caviar blue 320 gig drives
-no slipstreaming

I dont understand what you are arguing about. If disabling RAID allows his OS to install properly, then we know its the RAID drivers.

If it still does not work, fine; re enable RAID and go from there. This takes like a minute to do.

At this point its really a trial and error for the OP. There could be many possible reasons why XP is not installing

Anyways OP, how many partitions do you have on those RAID 0 hard disks? Are you simply reformatting the entire drive and XP is your only OS?

Burn the ISO and boot to it, run the extended test on both drives (you will have to break your RAID temporarily for this, I believe).
