Default Re: Install XP on RAID ?

Just tried that 2days ago. You cant install it when the array is made. You will have to break the array for it to pick up the drives. But even ocne i done that the bloody VIA drivers wouldnt work with Xp, i hate it. So damn annoying. well good luck,

Yeh well i ended up taking one one and using just the one to try and install. When it trys the drivers it takes them, and i select the right one for xp. Then it says like i dont need it xp has it built in (my ass) it installs, then boots up and i get 50 different errors about 3rd party scsi controllers etc etc.

Basicly that made me sell one of my drives and use the other one on linux. works atleast. But my friends lending my xp home soon, i shall see if this works. *grunts*

Have either of you considered phoning the Support for the makers of the Drives or Drivers? Cause loads of people have RAID on XP.
