I've gotten myself into a bit of logjam. Please bear with me as I describe the process, since I hope it'd help locating the cause and solution. 1. I've had my computer working: Soyo P4S Dragon Ultra MoBo (with built-in Highpoint 372 RAID controller) 1G DDR (total, PC2100 and PC2700, overclocked to 150MHz) P4 2.4G (overclocked to 2.8G) XP Pro 2. Then I thought, hey, why not RAID? So I got 4 Maxtor DiamondMax 10 160G ATA133 HDs, set it up (RAID 0+1, simple volume, dynamic partition in XP, and set the primary master disk as bootable in ightpoint Raid bios), partitioned it, formatted it, fired up Norton Ghost to clone my C drive to the nifty zippity RAID. Ghost did its stuff and asked me to reboot. Sure. 3. Missing Operating System. Oh sh*t... 4. I mentally reviewed my options. System recovery disk. Poped it in. Uh, seems like I fried the floppy drive as I was reshuffling all six HDs, two DVDs, and the floppy. 5. No biggie, reinstall. BSOD (SPDDLANG.sys). 6. Maybe I need to install the Raid driver first? OK, reboot, wait for the F6 prompt. Press press. "Press F2 for Automated..." WTF? So here I am, pressing F6 (with the driver CD in the second DVD drive) does nothing. Yes, keyborad is fine since F2 works in bring up the Automated System Recovery screen. Another bit of info: My current (well, "former" at this point) C drive has dual boot of XP on C and D, plus the recovery console. Where's D you ask? Another long sad story. Suffice to say here that it ain't there no more. I may get another floppy drive ($100? $*%&@) to try system recovery. But is it worth the try? Any other ideas? I'm pretty sure the C drive is still intact. It's just the MBR and boot sector might have been screwed by Ghost. Many thanks in advance!
