So I recently decided to RAID two seagate HDD's in a RAID 0 format. I used MSI's fastbuild utility and set it up in the BIOS to all of the proper RAID settings. Now I try to install windows on my newly RAID'ed HDDs and the windows setup doesnt detect the HDDs. I contacted MSI and they told me I needed to use a floppy disc to install the RAID drivers for my mobo at the start up of the windows setup when it prompts you to hit F6.

This is all fine and nice however when windows goes into the setup and tells me to hit F6 I hit it and nothing happens. I thought maybe i didn't hit it in tim or something so I rebooted and tried again this time hitting F6 repeatedly and still no menu came up. Any ideas as to why this is or what I could do to fix it?

Ok I rebooted and tried again and for some reason it worked this time. I have RAID set up and it is detecting my HDDs. Now when I try to install windows it says that "There is no windows XP compatible partition on this drive" Any ideas as to why?
