Question about Abit KT7A-RAID Motherboard
I have a ABIT-TH7 RAID P4 i try to reboot my system....when i put in the windows cd it tell me that " Setup did not find any hard disk drivers installed in the computer" and to make you that Ive been looking all over the net but nothing..... and the floppy drive light is on constantly....
I have the same system and here is how to get around it.
1. During the Windows XP CD boot, it prompts you if you want to load additional drivers (you must have these on a floppy). If you have the proper driver, the installer will recognize the RAID controller and your drives will be visible,
2. If you cannot get the drivers, simply swap the cables so that your install CD and HD are on the non-RAID connectors, these are the lower set closest to the floppy connector (mine are blue). Don't worry if you use this method, the BIOS will boot from the RAID properly after the system is installed.
The floppy light being on all the time indicates that the data cable is plugged in backwards.

This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY
HOPE I CAN HELP
