I recently came into posession of two 10k rpm seagate cheetah 74GB SCSI drives and an ATTO Technologies SCSI controler card. The card says that it supports striping in a way that will allow XP to boot from a striped drive, and it says XP normally wont. but how would one accomplish this. I know the XP installation gives me an opportunity to install SCSI drivers as i run setup, but unless im allowed to set up a RAID at that point (which i doubt) I couldnt RAID the drives before installing XP.
The other possible option I thought was to install the drives, boot XP from my existing boot drive, set the RAID up while im running windows only using the card's RAID drivers instead of windows, and then reboot and install then. Except it seems like the drivers from the card that set the drives up as a RAID wouldnt be active since window isnt booted.
any suggestions or expearience in this matter?
