    hmm this is weird. I would wait untill LSD gets on and reads the post he might have some further info on this. I would try going into my raid bios to see if there was anything that you may have missed but I cant with out deleting my array which aint gonna happen sorry buddy . But I can tell you it was pretty straight forward. I was just looking through the manual on my board and couldnt find anything. The only thing i see mentioned in there about vista 32 bit or 64 bit is under Power management HPET Suport and HPET Mode set to 32 or 64 depending on which version you are using but i have seen no difference and dont know what it does.

    You guys did some posting while i was writing mine. Still I dont think this should be a problem b/c the bios is not seeing the drives after he creates a array There is no partion on the drives yet.


    If you want to have 1 stand alone drive and the other drives in a raid 5 put the stand alone on port 0 of the yellow and the rest right after in port 1-4. Or you could but the OS drive on port 0 on the purple controller and your other drives on port0-3 on the yellow controller.

    Not saying I am necessarily right, but 2 drives RAID0 > 2TB unbootable, 3 drives RAID5 > 2TB unbootable, 2 drives RAID1 < 2TB bootable, what would you think as first pssible cause?

    There an explaination at Master boot record - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    @shredz
    Have you tried, if it is possible, to create a smaller partion(s) and try installing Vista?

    What do you mean by that? You should be able to go into your RAID BIOS anytime you like and look around

    All looks normal to me, 2.6-2.7GB is what you would get when using 3x 1.5T drives in RAID 5.



    Here is a RAID Calculator >>
    RaidCalc - Raid Disk Space Utilization Calculator - Raid, RAID, Redundancy, Performance - iBeast Business Solutions

    As for Bootable on the RAID/IRQ Screen, that will always say NO until you install an OS

    Lets try this, please go back to an older BIOS, one without XHD Settings as this may be what it causing you issues. I am not sure which those are though, sorry, just try a few older versions until you find the latest without it. Shouldn't be too far back as they just added this in the past month or so.

    Then all should be fine, and you should find your array listed in the Hard Disk Boot Priority section and be able to move it to the top, install your OS, then on reboot the Bootable thing will say Yes

    I did look in the raid bios but I didnt want to take the chance of deleting the array and recreate it and risk losing my data.

    After updating to F10f from F10e they have added the XHD raid and my drivers not not say bootable or not but my OS is installed on stand alone drive.

    I think is problem is that when he is using 3 drives i think in Raid 5 they are not showing up in boot priority but if he uses 2 drives in raid 0 it does. shredz correct me if I am not correct on that.

    One of there thing I dont believe its your problem but just double check to make sure there is no jumper on the back of the drives. If there is remove it.

    next? :(

    Does the RAID utility create any partition on a newly created RAID?

    Ohh, ya you can't do that!

    I am thinking the XHD may be a cause of these issues, hopefully he will try a BIOS without this setting to see about that.

    2 or 3 drives, ether way it should show up in Boot Priority Menu which makes me think maybe if it is due to XHD than this XHD BIOS still has some issues. I know they pulled it a few times and have added it back a few, maybe just no one had tested it in this manner yet.
