Ok so i had a raid 0 setup with 4 HDs. I was running XP and went to format my Hds and put win 7 on my PC. i took out all but 2 changed the raid setup in the bios to 2 drives and now it says all HDs are bad or damaged. So what is going on? I turned off raid and have gone through 5 HDs and it says all are bad HELP PLEASE. It wont let me even put XP back on just one Hd. SYS is SIG.

It's possible;e that the OLD RAID information is still on the drives.

Install the 4 drives again, then use the RAID BIOS to change the drives back to default, then re-create the RAID of your choice. The drives will not be bad, just that some old info is still on them.

This should work, and you will be able to continue with your install.
