Can't load SmartDisk FDUSB=TM2 on Vista Premium 64


Hello,
Windows Vista carries a lot of glitches ....we need to give it more time as it improves. The XP environment works better with older technologies like the smart disk floppy drive. My advice is for you to partition your hard disk and place Windows XP on one side and still keep the Vista on the other. That way you can have both OSystems and still be able to use your floppy drive. Alternatively you can upgrade and use a flash drive storage or DVD/CD. They are newer technology which are more compatible with Vista.

Cheers & Kind Regards

I don't see my RAID drives after reinstalling Vista 32


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.

Windows xp setup does not detect hard drive


You need to use the RAID/ATA floppy disk that was provided with your motherboard. It was supplied either on the cd or on seperate floppies.
When you have the disk in the floppy drive you press F6 when it asks at the very beginning of loading files in the windows setup.
When the setup asks load the RAID/ATA drivers and when you go to install your hard disk will be detected. You will have to get a floppy drive and plug it up if you don't already have one. There is a way to build a windows setup cd which includes the ata/raid drivers but it's often easier to just get a floppy drive.

Can't install windows XP on my KN8 ultra


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.

ABit-Th7 raid Drivers


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

Problem with new install xp


First of all, was there a reason that you wanted to reinstall windows? If you were having problems with the operating system and now upon reload the hard disk is not appearing it could mean that the disk or the system board itself is bad.

If you pull the XP disk out and just try to boot your computer up are you able to login and use your computer from the previous/original install of XP?

If so, then perhaps you're using a special hard drive controller that supports RAID. If you have a RAID controller you'll need to load the drivers of that controller on a Floppy disk. During the initial startup of the XP install it will give you the opportunity to click the F6 button on the keyboard to load additional device drivers. You want to click F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to prompt you to put your floppy disk (with the RAID controller drivers) in the floppy drive.

Hope this helps. If you need more help just let me know.
