    RAID trouble part deux.......

    I'm trying to install xp on my RAID, but when it comes to the screen to pick what drive to install on I see my IDE drive fine, but the RAID is not recognized. I booted from the CD and hit F6 to load the RAID drivers. Am I forgetting anything?

    In your BIOS did you select Raid?

    Moe is right... You must first set-up your RAID array in BIOS first. When you reboot, BIOS will then detect whether you have a "healthy" RAID array or not. When you load Windows, it will then prompt you to load your RAID drivers from your floppy. Once Windows is loaded, you can then go to system management/disc management and format the drives, assign drive letters and partition the drives if wanted.

    Ah.....I forgot the system management part

    When asked for what type of file system on it which one should I choose, default or NTFS?
