  1. Hi everybody.
    I was wondering since i've been having alot (and I mean 6 and a half hours of alot) of problems installing xp pro sp2 with the raid already installed, i've disabled the nvRAID and installed it with no problems.
    Now my questions is this - i've got two more 80GB SATA (maxtor) that I would like to RAID(0) and since I don't have anything installed on them I don't think there should be any problems, I would just like to know if it's possible or just stay with the current settings and forget RAID ever exsisted?

    If you have the RAID drivers installed, then it should be no problem. Well, unless your BIOS messes up drive ordering - Windows will definitely choke on that. Nothing permanent though - removing the RAID array should fix it again.

    So thanks again :)
