xp pro installation on new machine

  colin-189600 13:52 20 Dec 2004

I am trying to install xp pro on a new machine I have made. I have installed two seagate sata drives so I can raid for performance. My motherboard is a Asus k8v deluxe. When I am prompted to key f6 to install the raid driver, nothing happens ? Can anyone help out there ?

Raid drivers not on XP CD. Have you got the raid driver CD in the drive?

I have the raid driver on floppy disc, downloaded from asus. i can not install when prompted using the f6 key ?

yes, the best way is to have the raid driver on the floppy and press f6

are you sure the floppy drive is working correctly - does the light flicker on when you press f6 showing it is trying to read the disk?

where did you get the drivers - you should be using the ones from the motherboard manufacturers website click here ensure you load the raid drivers not the sata drivers - have never used these ones but you normally have to extract the drivers to the floppy - I have downloaded it to check - unzip all the files then run the makedisk.exe application to make the floppy

if the floppy light is on all the time the cable is connected the wrong way round
