Raid problem..

I have recently bought two WD3200YS hard drives to build a striped RAID system.
My motherboard model is WinFast 6100M2MA - RS2H.
Homepage: Link

First of all, I enable RAID in the motherboard's BIOS and then I build a striped array
through the Mediashield utility as can be seen below.

Next.. I'm trying to install WinXP Professional.
In order for the XP installation to see my RAID I have to load a RAID driver.
So, I have tried the following drivers:
1) The nvidia raid drivers found when extracting the latest nforce drivers :
nforce_winxp_16.08_english_whql.exe . I found the sataraid drivers at: \English\IDE\WinXP\sataraid
2) The sataraid drivers that came along with the motherboard CD.

So during the installation I pressed F6 and loaded the raid drivers from a floppy disk.
Everything went normally and then the installation found my sata raid as shown below.

The XP installation continued normally shown in the screenshots below.

But after finalizing the installation, and booting for the last time, I got the blue screen of death!

This happened for both drivers I used.
I also checked this error at the Microsoft Knowledge base at:

..but no luck!

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Download the RAID drivers from Foxconn, don't use the generic ones from Nvidia.
This may also be a computer memory issue as well, since the issue is generally caused either by a corrupt driver, a missing driver or the wrong driver.
