Okay, so I have the following machine I put together myself: Asus p5b deluxe board intel core 2 duo 4 SATA drives Windows XP I used the onboard RAID controller to set up 2 RAID partitions, a RAID 0 and a RAID 1 across 2 of the SATA drives. The remaining 2 SATA drives are RAID 1 mirrored. I installed Windows XP on the RAID 0 partition. This was all working hunky dory, although it did require a floppy disk drive to install the Intel SATA RAID drivers during the windows install. Now, recently, I tried turning on my PC and I got the following message === Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key === I happened to have my iPod plugged in when this happened, no idea if that had a hand in it. Now I try booting from windows XP disk, and it does not see any of the SATA drives unless I do the install again with the Intel SATA RAID drivers with a floppy. Then I tried to do a repair with the windows console, did BOOTCFG and FIXBOOT on these instructions: http://www.short-media.com/review.php?r=313&p=2 But did nothing to help me. Somehow the BIOS or Windows no longer seems to see the SATA drives or something. If I go into the RAID controller setup area, all the drives look fine, all the partitions show up, and the drives read normal. Any ideas on how to fix this bizarre issue? I can't get the thing to boot! Do I really have to reinstall windows and wipe the RAID 0 partition?
