Hi all,

I just recently bought a new system and I wanted to recreate the RAID 1 array that I had on my older one. But when I create it, following the manual instruction, all is fine until I enter Vista. It loads Vista (the little green moving bar at the bottom of the screen) and after I get a really fast BSOD (probably .05 second) and the system reboots

Here are my specs:

Asus P5Q-e (brand new)
Intel Q6600 G0 (brand new
4GB OCZ Reaper (2 x 2GB) (brand new)
1 X WD Velociraptor (main drive for software, not RAID) (2 months old)
2 X WD3200AAKS 320 GB (for RAID 1) (1 and 2 year old)
EVGA 8800GT 512MB (1 year old)
Vista Business 64 bit

Why are you using a RAID-1 for windows when you have a Velociraptor?

In anycase, whats the BSOD error? have you tried just installing off a single drive to see if you get the same issue?

Could be hard drive corruption issue. Install off each drive separately, then if no errors occur, create the array again.

I use my vraptor for Vista and Software, because I want maximal performance.

The BSOD is just to fast, like I said, it's more a flash than anything else.

I'll try installing the drives separatly...
