Please help me with installing Windows XP on Dell T7400 with H/W RAID controller on 4 15k SAS harddrives. When installing windows I hit F6 to add optional RAID drivers and load this drivers using floppy drive, but Windows crashes anyway. The same is without loading optional drivers.

Any suggestions?

The same problem as in http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/729150-t7400-blue-screening-after-windows.html
But still no replies. Please help!

pasza.a, can you tell us exactly what it says on your install disc please.
Does it have service pack 2 already in the disc?

The bluescreen says that there is a problem with disks. Installer suggests to run chkdsk and to fix possible problems with disk controllers. As for me I have installed all the necessary drivers using floppy disks. The exact code of a BSOD can give you tomorrow (I need to check it at work).

I'm using Win XP (Polish wersion) with SP3.
