Ok, has anyone set up a KT7 Raid board and installed their OS (XP) to a striped set on said board? Here's what we have..

Abit KT7 Raid MB (tried numerous Bios's including latest)
6g Maxtor dma33 HD (Master on IDE3)
6g Seagate dma33 HD (Master on IDE4)
other drives & peripherals all disconnected 'cept for CD rom on IDE 0 (needed to install OS)

Here's the process:

1. Go into CTRL- H setup on raid controller BIOS and Create new Raid.

2. Set Raid type to Zero
3. Select Drives and drive types (to configure for DMA 33 on both)
4. Choose Boot Drive
5. Exit utility
6. Start WinXP setup from XP CD
7. Tell setup to install XP driver for High Point 370 device
8. Go through normal setup to selecting Drive to install to.
9. Choose 12g unformatted partition on HP37X mbr(AKA my Raid setup)
10. Select Fat (quick)as format.
11. PC Locks up at the 20% mark

I have tried all other Format types both NTFS and FAT in quick and non-quick mode. Non-quick mode goes to 100% on the format and then PC freezes.
Any ideas?

Never mind

I finally got it to work. For some reason, one needs to put the drives in CS mode instead of setting each as master (or stand alone in the case of the Maxtor drive). Took a lot of experimenting and reading articels on line but no need to worry bout this now.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
