  1. I installed XP on a RAID 0 array but on attempt to boot into windows, it simply crashes. It flashes on a BSOD, but I can't read it in time.

    MSI K9N4 SLI-F motherboard. http://msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K9N4_SLI-F&class=mb
    2 x SATA300 160GB WD Caviar SE HDDs

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Code:
    
    

    EDIT: the BSoD stop code is 0x0000007b

    check the following:
    1. SATA drivers.
    2. RAID drivers
    3. BIOS edition

    and lastly, yes new HD's can fail. RAID 0 as you know, provide no error correction or margin of safety for data.

    I put the newest nforce drivers on a floppy and it fixed it.
