I want to setup a hard drive RAID 0 without installing windows on it

  1. Yes, I just want to RAID 0 two hard drives and put it in my current system. Do I just simply set the options in the RAID menu during post and simply format them in Windows XP? Or do I still have to install drivers?

    for raid, you need drivers. but firstyou need to turn on the raid controller in bios, and then enter the raid configuration utility upon the next reboot where you can set up the array. not all motherboards do it this way, and i'm assuming that you have the raid controller integrated int o the motherboard (not an add-in card). once you get that set up, install the windows drivers. you can then partition and format the volume using disk management.
