get to BIOs ..locate the hard disk ..and change the setting from the ACHI ..to sata like ide..or compatible ..Or ..use use a usb ..or a floppy ..to enter a raid driver for it ..when you install it ..If you pay attention ..when you run the installation of the xp ..Just after starting to load files ..(soon after press any key to boot from cd ) ..it says to press f 6 for to load 3rd party driver ..press it ..and use some kinda memory device ..that will be see..and load teh driver ..and will work ) Or ..just disable the sata raid ..for the hard disk ..and it will be seen after that when you load the operation system ..If it is a newish model ..it will not be affected ..only old models feel the difference in speed between the modes..
You or your friends need to switch of raid in BIOS. Harder way: make a floppy with raid driver (wich situated on the disk with moterboard drivers) Pirate way: there is copies of WIndoWS with installed drivers for almost all raid controllers
Usually, you have to install the raid drivers during Vista installation , not after. have the device that has the raid drivers on it plugged in when you install Vista, then when you're asked the LOAD DRIVERS option, click load drivers. This will install the raid drivers prior to Vista OS installation.
the driver is not included in the driver cab on the xp and server 2003 disks, you will need to download the drivers and put them on a floppy disk (usb floppy if you do not have an internal drive) then as the blue setup screen is loading press F6 to load the drivers.
This is your Mainboard driver MSI K8T Neo V (MS-7032)

I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here - http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=KN8+Ultra&pSOCKET_TYPE=Socket%20939 Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.
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
You must go to the motherboard manufacturers website (or it may possibly be on the CD that came with the board), and get the SATA drivers for windows to create a diskette (yes, a 3.5" floppy disk). When you first enter the windows setup screen at the bottom a message appears about hitting F6 to load 3rd party drivers, you have to do this. After a while a screen will show up and ask you for the drivers. Put in the floppy and hit S, then it should come up with a list of drivers allowing you to select the right one. Windows XP will ONLY look on the "A" drive for these drivers. Hope this helps
