Hi,

PC Info:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=485488

I recently bought 2 x 320GB Hitachi Deskstar with the intention of raiding them and installing a fresh copy of XP, but I'm confused and I'd appreciate any help :)

First off, my Mobo supports SiSRaid and NVRaid and doesn't give me any info on which to use.

Ok, So I've ripped my XP disc to my computer, edited the txtsetup.sif and the winnt.sif to direct to my drivers on the disc in the directory $OEM$\$1\drives\sisraid4.

The problem is, when I boot from CD, Windows does not detect the drivers and asks me to install them from a floppy drive (which I don't have) and I'm also confused by which drivers to install....

Upon downloading the SiS Drivers from ECS (Mobo Manufacturer) I'm presented with the following options for drivers...

Each folder contains:

txtsetup.oem
SISRAID (no extension)

RAID folder which contains the following folders

srv2003
win2000
winxp
ws03xp64

Which all contain:

property.dll
sisraid.cat
sisraid.pdb
sisraid.sys
sysraid.ini




Now, I obviously want the XP drivers but I'm now left with 5 options :)

If you understood that, and have any insight, I'd very much appreciate your input

Thanks.
