Hey there all,

Just a quick question. I would like to reinstall xp on my machine, and I don't want to use the drive image that came from my manufacturer. My only question is, Will a raid setup affect my install? I have done it before from the xp cd with no probs on my machine that just has one hard drive. Just wondering if I have to do something different for raid?

Thanks for any help in advance!

If during installation you presented with a message similar to ''Setup could not determine the type of one or more mass storage devices installed in your system", or a STOP7B then you may need to install the driver using the F6 installation method.

Press F6 when prompted in the status line with the 'Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver' message at the beginning of Windows XP setup (during text-mode phase).

Note: After pressing F6, setup will temporarily continue loading drivers and then you will be prompted with a screen to load support for mass storage device(s). Press the 'S' key to 'Specify Additional Device'

You will be prompted to 'Please insert the disk labeled Manufacturer-supplied hardware support disk into Drive A:' Once prompted, insert the floppy disk containing the RAID controller Drivers to continue the installation.
