Vista Ultimate 32 Wont Recognize My Raid-0 Array

Recommended Posts

I've recently installed Vista Ultimate 32 on an old 80GB drive of my to test things out.

I downloaded and install Nvidia V.15 Vista drivers.

Once re-booted into Vista, I was not able to locate my Raid-0 array.

I am sure the Raid-0 array is up and running because that's where I have my XP pro installed (not dual booting, OSs are switched by changing HD boot order in BIOS) and that's running flawlessly.

 

Vista does see my 2 x 160GB drives but just not in Raid-0 configuration.

 

Are there other step(s) that I am suppose to take to get Vista to see existing Raid drives?

 

Thanks in advance

I think even though the 15.00 nvidia drivers are installed for Vista, the RAID driver still is not set up properly. I had to manually install this drivers through the device manager.

Although I use the older 5.10.2600 XP drivers, installing the Nvidia SW IDE driver option made my array visible.

I tried manually installing the drivers but it told me that the best or the most suited drivers are already installed for this device. I noticed that it was the Nvidia V.15 drivers anyway!!

I read somewhere that people are using XP drivers for the sound card and it worked as well. In your case, you used the XP IDE/SATA drivers and made it work!!......Interesting~I'll give that a go tonight!!

 

Thanks

Bump.

 

Same problem here. Perhaps someone who had sucess in installing vista on their raid 0 setup could whip up a quick step-by-step?

Dont know whether this guide i found works for u guys... Havent try it... Just found it...

Guide on how to install Raid.

Tried those 9.67 drivers, still didnt work!

Whats happening is that I've already installed Vista on another IDE drive (non-Raid) and I have a pair of Raid-0 drives that Vista cant identify!

I am not trying to do a fresh install, that Raid installation process is somewhat similar to the XP one (-the press "F6" process).
