With RAID you either can't do this, or you have to rebuild the array to get access to it, however RAID has the exact same features that AHCI provide, such as I was under the impression that the drivers should work for both settings (AHCI and RAID) as there are no "AHCI" drivers that I've found but rather "RAID" drivers available.

  6. That way you can remove the AHCIX64 file, and the X64 folder completely.
  7. Continue WinXP install as normal onto the RAID drive6.
  8. So, I can set the 5th to run as IDE and the other 4 to run under AHCI.

The problem is that I didn't structure the floppy as suggested above. I have a utilty on the MB CD to make a floppy disk driver file to use on F6. This is the exact procedure I've followed:1. Yeah, I've done an XP install with Vista before where I had a SATA drive set to IDE in the BIOS.
