cant get raid0 to install windows please help

Recommended Posts

hey guys i bought myself 2x samsung spinpoint 80gb sata 2 drives for raid0, so i tried installing windows xp 64bit and during the installation it came up with errors of files that cant b copied both the cd and floppy disks work fine but it complained about "nv raid.cat, nv ata.cat, ks.sys and a few others i thought that it might have been because the 64bit version of windows has a lack of drivers and so on, so i decided to just use the standard 32bit version but it wouldnt install on that one either it would load up fine until the screen just before where u select the partition to install windows then it comes up with a blue screen saying windows has detected an error and has shut down to prevent damage or something to those lines. i know the drives are fine cause we tried them in my friends pc with a asus mobo and installed windows fine on raid0 with his system, i have followed all the instructions and got the latest raid floppy drivers but still no luck, can anyone help me please. thnx

i cant use the windows installer to format them cause it goes to a bsod just before that screen shows, but the drives are already clear cause i used another drive to boot up into windows and formatted it there (it detects the raid0 in the windows from the other drive)

Never ever have other hdds hooked up when installing windows only the drive or drives the os system is going on as windows will screw up. As you have just seen.

I assume you set up Raid in the Bios.

 

Couldn't tell ... did you download and place the (32-bit for 32 bit Windows) Raid drivers on a floppy and press PF6 at the beginning of the Windows install when the message appears at the bottom of the screen ?
