    i seem to have some problems with promise RAId which is found in gigabyte 7vaxp, when i install it(tried boot disks and all that), the driver from gigabyte's site it just doesn't seem to work because its not even digitally signed by xp(don't really care about thaT) but it just doesn't work, any other drivers? third party drivers that i can use?

    Im running the same board, but since Ive never bothered tring a RAID setup I have never worried about it. Do you get that warning after the POST too? Something about drivers not found. I tried installing the drivers from the gigabyte CD-ROM but no avial so I just gave up.

    it actually finds the other hdd, its just that win xp doesn't support the driver so it doesn't know what to do with the raid chip
