Hello, I have an error trying to setup raid on a new server. I have a Supermicro PDSM4/E motherboard which I need to install a RAID 5 on that has no current operating system. I am going to use XP Pro as the OS since I will be having only 5 computers in a workgroup. Anyway, as I'm installing the OS, I go to F6 to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver and insert the driver floppy for the Intel (R)82801GR/GH SATA RAID controller. I pick this from the list, since the manual shows to pick this one, and I receive the following error:
FILE iastor.sys caused an unexpected error (4097) at line 2113 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c
The controller fails to load. Don't I need to install this RAID before I actually install Windows XP Pro?
Does anybody have any clue to what's needed here?
