beginner Asus A8n-Sli motherboard.  I installed xp media center. I was running fine. I decided to create a raid 0 with two sata 160 gig ea.  I switched the sata cables to sata raid on the motherboard, I enabled the raid on the BIOS. I didn't have a clue of what to do so I went with the manual. I started with the silicon image raid, I made a mistake and  deleted the raid I created for disc 0 and  and right away I created it again, then I went to step two and did the same for disc 1(second drive) I used the full capacity of both hard drives for the RAID size.  I exit and restarted. The computer boots normally but stays with black screen. it allows you to go to set up but there is no sign of XP.  Did I loose all my data? Hope not because it took me at least 10 diffrent ttimes to install xp

    if you added your boot drive to the raid set it was reinitialized=deleted
    That means you have to reinstall the OS
