Hi there,

Does anybody manage to install Server 2003 on a RAID0 config
(2*160Gigs)...

I'm using Bios 1.5, both drives are recognized, I did build the RAID
volume by pressing on Ctrl-I... the Windows install process is
starting normally, I'm pressing F6 to get Intel RAID drivers
installed... Windows starts the partition formatting and... at the end
I'm getting an error message telling me that Windows wasn't able to
format the partition...

Is this normal?
Did you find a workaround?

Thanks for your replies...

flash to the newest bios for the board so you have the newest Intel bios.
make sure to be running the most current drivers which are 3.5.0.2568.

haven't heard of any issues with respect to getting this particular setup
running. you might want to visit the Abit forums on the web and see
anything regarding SATA on the IC7-G or IS7 series of boards. there is a
walkthrough there for getting set up.
