Thank you Acronis. I have 4 different bootable cd's from my 4 Acronis applications here. Partition Expert (2003 btw MS, catch up), True Image 8, OS Selector and Drive Cleanser each have something in common that neither of the XP Pro SP2/2003 Server CD's can provide. All of Acronis bootable media sees not 1 but both of my RAID controllers by default. 3ware and Intel onboard both in use on here and all is well with my Acronis CD's. Still using the retarded F6 and floppy method for MS's OS install CD's. Atleast make a dang way to add the drivers to the cd and burn a "non-sata/raid caveman cd" that MS keeps putting out. Hopefully, one day, my OS will install with such ease on raid/sata.
