So I have an old PC I put back together to use in the media room to play movies.
It is an Athalon 939 board (ASUS a8n-SLI deluxe)
I used two original 150gig WD Raptors in Raid 0 (intended for c Drive)
and two 250 gig SATA WD hardrives in Raid 0 (intended for media storage)
I tried windows 7 64bit
Windows 7 32 bit
XP PRO 32 bit
None of them install.
In the BIOS I can see both Raid Set ups.
Windows 7 see's only the Raptors on the NVIDIA SATA RAID chip... but does not see the two others I put on the other built in RAID chip.
I think I just need to install a driver for that, but since I want to install to the 10k rpm drives I am not worries about that now. I can load drives once windows is up and running and bring those drives online... I know they are hooked up properly.
I tested the drives before I put them in.
Basically what happens is I get to the screen in windows 7 where you choose a drive. The raptors are listed. I can delete partition, create a new partion, and format it.
But when I click next... I get a message that says windows is unable to install.
