    so I'm trying to format my hard drive but when I boot to the windows cd and try to delete my partition and reinstall windows it says that it can't access my hard drive. It wants some kind of raid software. so what I want to know is how do I load the software? If I make a cd with the raid drivers on it and boot to that, will it give me the option to format then install windows? or do it just take out the windows cd and put in the raid drivers when it gives me the error message?

    You need the drivers for the RAID card on a floppy. Hit F6 when prompted during setup.
