Hello. did you manage to install your raid drivers correctly as XP doesn't contain the necessary drivers on the setup disc?

Check your bios to see if it's registered and change the settings to auto.

During the XP setup you get the option to press F6 to install additional drivers, you should have the drivers on your motherboards' CD and you can try installing them first. But if this doesn't work then you'll have to take them off of the CD and put them onto a floppy disk and install them during setup.

Letme know how you get on.
