Can't install Windows XP after a failed RAID 0 Configuration
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have a computer that had a RAID 0 and 1 drive failed. Now, after accepting defeat, I have put a new standalone 500gb drive. When installing Windows XP or MCE however, I keep coming to the partition section of the installation, and it shows 4 "unknown drives" and if I hit Del to delete or C to continue, I get BSOD that says something like:
*** STOP: 0x0000008E
*** setupdd.sys Address
This isn't all of it, but I think you get the idea. I searched this out and found a Microsoft KB article about the memory. I isolated the Ram modules, however, no change. I saw that someone else had his problem with previous RAID 0. I tend to think it is the RAID.
I believe the previous RAID was an Intel matrix. This PC is a Sony and has a very limited BIOS, and there is no mention of RAID in BIOS. Just for kicks, I installed Ubuntu, and that worked fine on the drive, but, WIndows crashes when I get to the drive/partition setup part. Any thoughts?
