Need to disable raid, please help!

Postby bryter » Sat Apr 07, 2007 3:29 pm

Hi guys,

I need help, badly. I have an amilo x1546 and want to install win xp home. When I insert the cd it does not recognize the hdd. I know there's another thread showing how to create a floppy with the raid drivers that you install before setup, but I don't have a floppy drive and all I want to do is disable the raid, and just have the two hdds as they are but I cannot alter any of the options in the bios!

Is there any way to disable raid?

I really appreciate your help :)

No. Windows requires drivers for your raid controller in every case.

But you don't need a floppy ;-) (see section 2.2)
