I have never installed a Raid Before and just bought 2 x 320GB Hdd's and thought i would give it a go. However, i have encountered so many problems as listed below
1. Got the raid array up and running in the BIOS and when into windows i can see the drive under management and format it and it shows as one big drive. However, i want to install windows on the Array and when i try to do so it asks for the raid controller which i cant install as i have no floppy disc.
2. I therefore slipstreamed windows with the Raid controllers and SP3 and it went to format and i said it could not format the SCSI drive.
Guys i am at a loss and need help here as i am over my head with RAID
Do you have a second optical drive in your PC? If so you could put the mobo CD in that drive and direct the Windows installer to it when asked to press F6 to load raid drivers. Otherwise, the floppy method is the one that works for me.
