Having issues...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Trying to install RAID 0 on this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-512-_-Product using two WD 1200JB-00EVA0 hdds. They are PATA drives.
I've put them in RAID 0 through the BIOS and installed Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP 3, but when I try to boot from them I get a message stating "Disk read error".
Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Did you splice the drivers into your install disk using N-lite?

You will need to do this for the raid drivers otherwise it won't work.

during the install of xp, after it loads drivers ect.. you need to hit f6 iirc and give it a disc with the raid controller driver
then it can boot from the raided drives

Windows XP never worked great with the F6 key in my experiance hence the N-lite and splicing the drivers into the install disk.

WEll I'm going to try and use the driver disk, which i dont have but downloaded the drivers from asus. I'm assuming I just need to raid drivers on the disk and not the other stuff correct?

yep, be sure to extract them and burn them to the disc, and know the path to the ini, you may need to type it in

Ok so I dled what I think to be the correct file and burn the data to disk. My stripe is "healthy" leading me to believe the hdds in the array are fine. Go to install windows xp and when it says to hit f6 I do. Nothing happens until it goes alittle bit further on then says "Please insert the disk labeled Manufacturer-supplied hardware support disk into Drive A: press enter when ready".
Nothing happens...what am I doing wrong here?

it can be a trick to get xp to boot to raid

you might need to put them on a floppy disk

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...in2KXP_503.zip
files you need are here
K8N_Win2KXP_503.zip\\WINXP_2K\\IDE\\Disk

Only problem with that is I dont have any floppy drives or disks laying around lol. Havent in almost 6 or so years.
I did however already dl that entire file you listed, Win2kxp_503.zip
Extracted to desktop and was looking through it. I burned the file "WinXP" under the IDE file to disk. Once prompted to insert a Manufacturer-supplied hardware support disk I did so yielding no results. Should I have burned the "Disk" file instead?

all of the files in the 'disk' folder, should be on the root of the cd or floppy
you might be able to get away with putting them on a usb stick or sd card, but i doubt that will work, the k8n is an old board
