XP doesn't support fault tolerant volumes. It only supports software RAID 0. To configure RAID 1 with XP requires installing host adapter hardware.
I'm trying to do mirroring (RAID 1 to be specific) on 2 250GB hard drives.
These hard drives are SEPERATE from my Windows XP Pro SP2 installtion which is located on my 80GB hard drive.
After seting up the the RAID on the 2 hard drives, Windows refuses to boot. It gives me "Windows cannot boot with current hard drive configuration. Cannot read installation from boot disk..." and a bunch of support options like read the manual for further directions.
If I delete the RAID array - I can boot to Windows without a problem and everything is in tact on the Windows hard drive. Why does the RAID effect the Windows boot? Infact, in my BIOS, I have the Windows hard drive on a higher priority boot then the RAID array when it's setup.
Can someone help me?
