Default Installing OS on RAID 0

I'd like to install Windows XP and 7 on a RAID 0 setup.

How would I go about doing this, as XP needs RAID drivers I think, how could I get these, or would I really only be able to instal W7, as I have no floppy drive.

There are ways around it that you can use - here for example.

However, for the sake of £10, you could just get a USB floppy drive - I have one lurking around for just these reasons (and it's useful if you have anything else on floppy you may want to look at again...)

Save the whales, feed the hungry, free the mallocs.

If you're lucky, the Windows disk will preload the driver.

If not, your best bet is to put the driver on a USB floppy drive. Using the CD that came with the motherboard won't work in this case because Windows doesn't have a driver for the storage controller.
