    Accepted Solution

    Does the machine boot to and run Win7 correctly?
    Has this worked on other machines like it?
    Do you need to manually provide extra RAID or storage drivers?
    Have you tried a different XP install disc?

    Also, you posted this to the wrong zone. I don't think you actually meant "OS/2". ;-)
