It sounds like you have created an install disk. It also sounds like you pressed F6 to install additional drivers. Your install disk probably has 2 drivers on it. You must install them separately. So--you will have to tell the install program twice to install each driver in turn. Once you do that, it should work.

How to set up a Raid 5 on a MSI A88XM-E35?

Your motherboard does support RAID:
"SATA1~6 ports support RAID 0/1/5/10 modes by AMD A88X"

However, software RAID isn't supported in Windows 7 home premium. So are you asking how to setup the RAID array using the hardware support provided by your motherboard or are you looking for software RAID support?

My hard drives r cleared of everything? and now it doesnt read the pin connection but picks up the sata but says it cant make an ARAID!? what is it not doing and how do i fix it?

I take it that you have erased your hard drives and are trying to re-created a RAID array.
I have found that formatting a drive may not remove the RAID information. what i would recommend is using a utility to zero out the first section of the drive(50-100MB of data) that will ensure that all the RAID info is removed from the drive and then you can attempt to re-create the array.

if your familiar with a Linux system you can use the the "dd" utility to zero the drives.

Xp is not install

Best solution is to get and use the original restore discs.
If using a regular XP disc installation requires specific technical steps to boot from the disc , delete the existing partitions, format and install then download original drivers one at a time.
Getting the original restore discs would be alot easier than using an XP disc
hope this helps

Trying to set-up striped array. When loading operating system sata drivers are required. Where can I find these

While the computer is booting up from the CD/DVD, you are presented with a message saying: "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver....". If you press F6 at this stage, you will be able to install the required SATA drivers.

Another way is to make an ISO image of your OS installation disc & slipstream your SATA drivers into that ISO image using nLite, then burn the modified ISO image back on a CD/DVD & boot the system using this CD/DVD. This way, you will be able to load the SATA drivers without pressing F6. This will be installed automatically.

Check the following link for more details:

You can download nLite at the following link:
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.

The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:

How to install xp on sata hd,,how to update raid driver on msi pm8v

whilst booting from the XP disc you should press F6 as instructed to install and special drivers.

These should be on a floppy and the setup will after a few moments ask you for them.

Simply point it to your floppy drive.

If you don't have a floppy you mya want to try a USB floppy drive or hook one up just for this purpose.

It is possible to use a USB key formatted especially for this purpose but it is not always as simple as that.

If you know how to "slipstream" then you can do it that way too.

Your motherboard CD should han the drivers you need.

Once you have XP installed and booting then you can set the raid parameters as you need

Can´t find my SATA-disk....

I'm sorry to say buddy but I checked ... Then checked some more, and I can't see anything about your motherboard supporting SATA-II. If you look about you should find a jumper setting on your HDD to limit it to SATA-I, which is about half the speed of sata-ii but I'm almost promising it will work.

Let me know if this solves it, If not I can find the jumper settings for you, But seeing as though you just bought it you should have a manual.

I want to install RHEL3.0 in SATA DeskStart HD using MSI SATA MB, but not detecting at OS installation time. HOW i can detect, Pls help me!!!!

You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
