Dell and Raid Drivers

  Terry Brown 13:32 26 Sep 2005

I need to re-format a Dell 8400 (system currupted during uninstall of program)
Can only get to DOS screen

This has a SATA Hard Drive and no floppy drive (usb floppy drive installed ?). If I format the Hard Drive, using windows XP Home, will I need to install separate drivers for SATA or will XP take care of it all ?.
Thank You

When you boot up with your xp disk and the blue screen appears you should see something like "Press F6 to install third party drivers". This is wear you would install your RAID drivers

wasn't thinking clearly, it should detect yout SATA drive automatically, if not then do the F6 thing

Thanks, I'll try that. I didn't want to format then find I was stuck in the middle of an install
