Reformatting RAID

  1. Do I have to reinstall the RAID drivers when I decide to reformat?

    I hate to put that dumb floppy drive back in my computer.

    I'm afraid so

    It's good you kept a working floppy.You have to go through the same
    procedure as before.
    Believe me as i just did it.

    What a pain, but I'm long overdue. I'll probably wait for some new ram and do a good cleaning when I open it all up.

    Thats a good idea.

    Its also a good time to remove and reinsert pci and agp cards
    (in the same slots)
    If you have any IDE hardrives,disconnect them till you complete the Sata install and OS.This ensures it will be C:

    I have a SCSI disc for backup(I'm using AID-0) through a PCI controller.

    Why do you recommend the work with the PCI cards? To keep the slots/pins clean?
