  1. Hi

    I know about pressing F6 and loading drivers,
    but can't get that far.

    Me problem is, when I attach the disks
    which are setup for raid 0, cd won't boot, but
    if I remove drives power and leave card in cd boots.
    bios set to boot cd then raid.
    When drives powered up as Raid 0 and
    try to boot XP pro CD get "press any key to reboot".

    Could boot old singal drive and copy an old xp partition to raid0
    with pqmagic and boot it. but I want now to do a total fresh install.
    As me old singal drive died last week.

    Have you recently installed any new software? If so then try reinstalling it.
    Have you recently installed any new hardware? If so then check the drivers.
    Always take these steps first for problems like this.

    Hope this helps!
