no dudes i meant that when you install win xp on a raid 0 hdds yxp setup will need the files that came from the mobo for raid setup. What i asking is that can xp setup be able to read from the card reader just like a floppy when i install xp on raid drives?
I'm not sure Windows will find and allow you to use your card reader in place of your floppy drive during installation. I was in the same boat a few weeks ago, so I put the card reader in place and I temporarily installed a floppy drive. I didn’t plug the card reader into the motherboard until after I was sure everything was running, so I can’t for sure say that Windows won’t use it during installation, but removing the floppy drive after finnishing the Windows install was very easy.
yeah! that's what i meant by it. Sorry for making you guys confused with my question earlier wehehehe! I found out that i coukdn't be accessible during the bluescreen setup of win xp huh! what a bother! I wanted to negate from an old media such as the floppy but i seems i still need it for raid setup purposes.
Internal card readers , as any other USB installed device, will only be recognized by system after windows (or any other OS supporting USB) install. Will not working before OS install. After install will be recognized as internal drive diffent from floppy or any other drive installed. Cannot be used as raid , as controler for raid do not control USB port. If you want to have a faster data media, memory cards are better than floppy... but if you want to be safe , make a back you in raid 0 hd system... or get 2 memory cards... they will be safer than any set of floppy you can do in "raid"....
