Abit IS7 Motherboard w/onboard ICH5 Raid 0/1 2x Hitachi SATA 80gb drives I created a image off a single 250gb Maxtor drive about 22gb in size. Stored it onto a USB External drive. Restored with that image and that external drive onto 1 of the Hitachi 80gb's just to make sure the image would work. It boot up and worked just fine on 1 Sata drive. Next I setup both Hitachi 80gb Sata into Raid 0 and tested to make sure the array was working by reinstalling XP Home onto it. It boot up just fine into windows. Next I left the BIOS settings alone, boot into the TI 8.0 (937) boot disk, selected the same image, selected the raid 0 array that showed up about 150gb in size. Set it as active drive, and let it restore the image onto the raid array. Completed fine. Reboot the system with no BIOS changes, Raid 0 is still left as boot device like it did with the single drive install previously. Well it gets past BIOS/POST screen, then displays XP for about 1 sec then goes to Blue Screen,Hardware failure screen. All the info is on the drive when I look at the raid array through the boot disk, all the windows files are installed and using the correct ammount of space. Just won't boot. Attempted formatting the Raid 0 with XP disc and then image,recreating the partion with the boot disk ultlity of TI8.0 and then imaging. 4x I tried and each time it comes back with BSOD. So if I install windows on the array it loads up great using the supplied F6 /Floppy driver for Intel 865PE/ ICH5 Raid setup. But then without changing the settings in BIOS and leaving the array alone I then try to restore using the tested image that I used on just 1 of the drives and the restore completes and then reboot , windows Xp shows the start screen for a split sec then goes to blue screen. IDEAS? Please. I already gave up trying to use this on my Nforce system, I reloaded the OS on it from the ground up which took about 6hrs total. With this system I can't afford to do a full restore and with all this wonderful software that is supposed to work with Raid 0 why should I do a clean install after spending $50 on this stuff. I just can't reload it, its too healthy of a install, not a single issue with the image , it runs fine on one drive but just not Raid. I have ran the MBR repair floppy and the sysinfo.txt file that I sent into support.
