Recently one of my friends bought a new computer, so he asked me to help him install windows xp for him. I thought this would be very easy as I've installed windows 100's of times. I put in the cd and it booted as normal, then when it came to the screen asking me which partition i would like to use, the list came up saying "Unknown Disk" 4 times.
It crashed after this, so I realised that these hard disks were using RAID. I looked inside and saw 2 Seagate barracuda 7200.8 hard disks, both 200GB each. I dont know anything about RAID at all. I tried booting up xp again, this time i pressed F6 during installation to get the RAID setup screen, it then asked me to press "S", so i did. Windows didnt recognise the hard disk and prompted me to insert a disk to install it. The computer didnt come with any disk.
Then I started reading the motherboards user manual and there were instructions telling me how to set the hard disks up. i tried following the instructions but it wouldnt let me go far. the error message came up everytime i selected auto setup or when i selected "Select hard disks". The message was "Error: Hdd not Enough!" I can see both disks highlighted at the bottom, so they should be working fine, its just that I dont know how to set them up.
the motherboard my friend has is MSI 915, thats the most i can remember. Can someone please help.
