    Hi there,:D

    Can anyone shed any light on this problem?:confused:

    Winows MCE install won't detect my RAID set up stating it can't find a hard drive to install too.

    The story so far....

    * I have downloaded the latest RAID drivers to floppy for my Asus A8N SLI Premium direct from the Asus web site and then made the floppy disk.
    * I have enabled all Nvidia RAID options in the BIOS
    * At POST I pressed F10 to enable Nvidia RAID screen and create a RAID 0 array with 64k data ect ect (beign able to press F10 proves you have RAID in the BIOS set up or as far as I know you won't get the F10 option).
    * After configuring RAID via the step above windows POST screens detect my two raptors together and state they are healthy.

    * MCE then goes all the way through to the part press F6 and load the RAID driver from floppy.
    * Driver loads from floppy and displays a screen where you can instal XP, repair XP or Quit.
    * I select Instal XP and am told it cant find a hard drive and so quits out.

    Ive tried this 'install loop' many times and can't think of what else to do.


    Has any of you XP/MCE techs got any ideas? anything at all??

    It would be greatly appreciated.;)
