I just bought the parts needed at newegg for a new computer and everything went together well. I tried to install Windows XP Home Edition and it wont see the raid to finish installing. I have a Asus A8N-VM CSM micro motherboard and it can see the 2 WD 80gigs in a raid 0 config. I loaded the raid drivers from the Asus disk when XP asks for them and it installs just fine BUT when it restarts to finish installation it doesnt see the raid and restarts all over again. I went out and bought XP Home Service Pak 2 in hopes that might help but it does the same thing. What am I doing wrong????

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Do you mean it goes back into the windows install program?
If so do this: When the computer restarts after installing, go into the bios and set the boot order to hard drive first. Might also have to set it to boot from sata instead of ide.

I'm thinking its a bad MOBO so I sent it back to MSI for another.
