Hi I have a problem with raid 0. I just built my new computer with 2 WD 160g hard drives it it. When I first built it I did not setup a raid. Then I decided to set up a raid. I set up the raid in the bios and set up a striping raid. When i reinstalled windows it wouldn't boot. Any advice?

Go into the BIOS and verify the boot devices and boot order, specifically make sure the RAID array is the in the boot list as either the 1st boot device or 2nd boot device after the floppy or ROM, depending on your preference.

Good luck!

To Coronaz:

No there is no error message it comes into the windows boot and the bar gets about half way across then it tries to reboot. It comes up the message that windows was shut down improperly so I tried to boot in safe mode but still it didn't help.

Probably has something to do with either your RAID drivers (reinstall, make sure you loaded the right ones) and or the ACPI setting in the BIOS.

Thanks guys,

I got it working, it was the drivers.
