Im using only one drive at the moment and is setup as RAID 0.From what I read,in order to use any raid array u need at least 2 drives.However if i dont use this RAID option,I cant boot up.So i configure it to bootable drive using RAID otherwise I cant install OS.Is it ok?Now Ive installed XP on it,and I assume i need to install driver via floppy????????(necessary)?
in the mean time,can i instal mobo and gfx drivers 1s?

I really find it hard to understand what you are saying but I can tell you if you only have one hard drive then it isn't setup as RAID0.

What I think you're saying is that you have RAID 0 setup but you're only running 1 HDD.

What I think you mean is that you're running a RAID driver (since you motherboard has SATA RAID), and you're running WinXP using 1 HDD. So in reality, you're not running any RAID at all, you're just using the driver since your mboard has a RAID chip for the SATA drives.

Does that sound right?
Also, please put up your specs, since those would have helped greatly in trying to answer what you're asking.
