I bought two Hitachi 250Gb SAta drives that were on sale at Compusa Last month and finally have had the time to try and set up raid. I have a Asus A7n8x-E dx with two Sata ports. I set them and and the mainboard hangs at verifing at DMI pool data. I have updated the BIOS for the hope of the option to boot from a SATA drive but no luck, it gave the option for RAID boot. The first part of the XP install went well but it hangs now. I have a feeling that I will need an IDE drive to run the MBR since I heard that a Raid 0 from XP could not hold a MBR. Any suggestions?
