    Default ga-ep45-ud3p won't load xp with raid enabled

    I have a new build
    ga-ep45-ud3p
    intel core 2 duo e7400 wolfdale 2.8ghz
    evga GeForce 9800 gtx+
    lg blu-ray
    (7) Seagate 1TB sata drives
    corsair dominator CM2X1024-8500C5D 2Gig
    Windows xp

    I want to set up six of the harddrives as a raid 5 array and one will contain the o.s. the problem is when I set the SATA RAID/AHCI Mode to RAID in the Bios at 34 min left in the xp install I get the BSOD ''IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL''. If I set to disabled i can install xp with no problems but it doesn't show my raid array. I did set up the raid in the Raid Bios. I used Nlite to install the driver.
    HELP!!!!!

    What size partition are you tring to install XP onto. XP has a limitation of 2 tb. This could be your problem. Read this link for more information.

    Also make sure you are using the latest driver. If you have these drives set up on the yellow intel controller only make sure you only use the intel driver and not the gigabyte drivers.

    The o.s. is installed on a 1TB drive plugged into the purple sata connector the yellow connectors have six 1TB drives I only added the "Motherboard_driver_sataraid_intel" driver in Nlite.

    Ok your installing XP on to a 1tb drive on the gigabyte controller so you dont need any drivers for this drive unless your using ahci mode. The other drives that are in the raid, did you use XP installer to format the other drives? I would leave them unformatted untill you get XP installed. The only other thing I could think of other then a hard ware problem would be You need XP with SP2 or 3 slip streamed. If your XP SP1 or no SP then could be the problem.

    You may also want to run memtest86+ for a couple passes to make sure your memory is ok. Memtest86+ can be found here

    The xp disk has sp3, and I ran memtest with no errors. I will try to setup without raid and then switch it over after xp install.

    Default Re: ga-ep45-ud3p won't load xp with raid enabled

    Windows xp

    I want to set up six of the harddrives as a raid 5 array and one will contain the o.s. the problem is when I set the SATA RAID/AHCI Mode to RAID in the Bios at 34 min left in the xp install I get the BSOD ''IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL''. If I set to disabled i can install xp with no problems but it doesn't show my raid array. I did set up the raid in the Raid Bios. I used Nlite to install the driver.
    HELP!!!!!
    First of all XP home would not be supported in a RAID configuration only XP Pro. Dont get me wrong XP home will let you install but it does give a warning while setup is running. I can only direct you to this website R A D I F I E D | Nuclear Grade Technolust for possible help on Drive setup or the tweakguide.com website with a tweaking companion PDF DL.
    All the best for you max out

    I have battled it all weekend with no luck I have tried to install xp pro and home with no luck at the same spot they both go to BSOD. It has to be something in the bios but I can't figure out what it is. When I disable the RAID and install the os I can see the drives in the hardware manager but not in the disk managment.

    Can you please tell us where you have each drive connected, what # and color ports, and then tell us what BIOS settings you have for the following

    Integrated Peripherals

    Intel Controller (Yellow Ports)
    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) .............
    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode ................................... Enabled (or Disabled, both will work)

    Gigabyte/J.Micron Controller (Purple Ports)
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Enabled
    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ...........

    What driver exactly did you slipstream? Are you creating an Array at all before you try to install? Are you trying to install your OS to the array or not? Sorry about all that, just wanted to be sure of everything before I advise you how to proceed
