Trying to install xp on a new raid 0 array , POST test says there's a healthy array present.CD boots , loads setup files , says press F6 if you want to load 3rd party controller.. scsi .etc. No prob insert floppy & do so.More setup files load(including nvraid.sys) then press enter to install windows , do so and "setup did not find hard disks installed on your computer " make sure HD's are power on & connected " check they are. 2 identical, brand new drives just out of the box. Was running single IDE drive before.Any ideas on why the error?

thanks

Many boards also ship with two different raid chips (they want more than the chipset offers) so if you've got more than one, make sure you're installing the correct ones.
