Default Re: Installing XP

Oh my god we have like the same motherboard and I think Spank_Fusion as well. He had one hell of a time getting his SATA drive going. I think he said in another thread to disable RAID in the BIOS.

I however, did not disable RAID and kept that running on a single SATA drive. I enabled RAID using the F10 nvidia RAID setup. I may add another drive in the future which is why I enabled it for RAID.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
