At first I was going to use a raid array for 3 Seagate 160's but decided not to because I was having a problem getting the array to work. So, I canceled the array and went ahead with an install using the 3 separate hd's instead. The problem I am having is that when XP pro boots it asks me which install I want to use, how do I get rid of that? Marvell raid utility was not fully installed, do I need to fully install it and then delete it? Will that get rid of it? As far as deleting it off of the hard drive it's on; I'm not to sure which one it's on. In BIOS the hard drives are labeled identically without descriptors of any kind.
One more concern: None of the programs, including XP Pro loads any faster than with my 4 year old machine.
Thanks in advance for any help or insight on these issues,

Phooey, I knew that but was hoping that there may be a "quick" way of doing it.
So, in essence, I'll be reformatting all three drives and installing XP correctly this time. While formatting, that will take care of my raid problems too - correct? I always have a hard time with Quickbooks, to the point of heart failure pertneer, which is why I was hoping for a quick fix.
I appreciate your help and taking the time to help,
I neglected to mention this, guess I forgot. The raid array was not completely loaded. When entering the utility page I can only go forward and I'm unable to delete it. But then, reformatting the HD's will take care of that won't it?
