I had a 2 X 250GB HD that were configured as raid 0 or striped and a 80 gb OS drive.
My OS drive had to be replaced with a new sata drive thus having to re-install windows XP SP3. How do I bring or detect the 2 drives again? When plugged, windows doesn't load. it seats in a black screen with white text searching for something... all it says is, cannot detect anything. If I disconnect the 2 then, win XP loads fine. I appreciate any help. Thanks.

the bios is probably set to boot from that raid array first and if it doesn't find an OS there it won't check the next drives. check your bios and make sure the system is set to boot from cd drive first then your os drive
