P4C800-E Deluxe, FastTrak 378, raid 0, winxp don't boot

Hello,
I don't understand why ?

P4C800-E Deluxe, FastTrak 378 BIOS 1.00.0.37 Promise Technology, 2 SATA disk 250 Go on sata raid 1 et sata raid 2, 1 IDE boot drive with WIN XP.

If I don't initialize an array in bios, winXP boot.
When I initialize a raid 0 array in bios, winXP don't want to boot.
Other test, I don't initialize an array in bios, winXP boot, I use PAM to make the array, disk manager to create a partition, format this partition, assign a letter, copy some data, after the reboot winXP don't want to boot.

Please Help

  1. Install RAID drivers before you enable RAID.

    Or just forget RAID and use the second disk as backup disk. Remember: RAID cannot replace a backup. A backup is worth much more than a RAID1 alone.
  2. Thanks, raid driver are right install, backup is ok on an external disk. I want to have 500 Go raid 0

    If driver wasn't Ok, in the device manager I will see them KO and I can see them Ok and use (promise array manager) PAM.
    Is there driver for boot and driver for use ?
