    i recently bought a new system:

    Abit AV8 with K8T800 Pro Chipset Socket 939
    AMD 64bit 3500 CPU, socket 939 ofcourse
    2x Hitachi 80Gb Sata HDs
    1GB ultra Pc3200 DDR400(2x512)
    6800GT
    Running Windows XP

    Both HDs are set to Raid 0, but when i try to install windows, after i load the drivers from the floppy on the F6 screen, it still wont detect them. I also tried running just one of them and installing windows in it, it still wont detect it.

    I have the system running now on my old 80Gb WD IDE HD as primary for windows and such, and both SATAs for everything else. Running it this way, Windows detects both drives AND runs them as i set them for Raid 0.

    Anyone have any idea why Windows is acting this way? Any ideas of what i could try?

    Which drivers did you load? I've never messed around with a RAID, but I was under the impression that you need to supply SATA and RAID drviers for Windows setup.

    the mobo came with its own floppy disk with its sata drivers.
