How to change RAID to Normal in Bios in Vista64 SP1 on one hard drive and XP Pro SP3 on the second hard drive with each with a separate boot choice? When RAID changed to Normal there is a message "Operating System Missing" and black screen. Shall the Vista64 SP1 installation disk be applied at this step?

You will need to do a repair install to both of them in oreder to get them to work.

Thank you. Please, correct me if wrong. The XP Pro SP3 CD has to be inserted on the computer start before the dual boot starts. Then, the XP Pro will be used for the repairs, and after the computer shut down. Then, the Vista 64 bit sp1 installation DVD will be used at the computer start (or on the Vista boot?).
Is any change in BIOS (F2 key) needed such as moving the CD-Rom start in No. 1 position?

Thank you for your support. I used Partition Commander 11 (32-bit) to clean the disks and install the XP Pro SP3 (32-bit) first on one SATA and then Win7 on the second SATA. Now, I can boot either one. Setting in BIOS is NORMAL. Both systems run fine.
