I'm just about to buy an MSI K8N neo4 Platinum as part of a system build, and I want to install windows XP on a single non-raid sata drive. Never having installed a sata drive I've been downloading manuals and searching forums for a definitive 'how to'. Unfortunately opinions differ. Some say installation can be done without even going through the f6 process because the nforce controller is 'native'. Others suggest setting the single drive up as a striped array in the raid bios and then going through the f6 process (a single disk raid???). Any advice welcome?
