what do you mean when you say it wouldnt restart? any particular files listed as missing or is it another error reported, is your system overclocked?

Was the new 30 Gb HDD installed as the Primary Master? You'd think it would be happy being installed as a Primary Slave, if the box already had a Primary Master.

Cool F6

Did you press F6 during the beginning of the install to istall the RAID drivers?

I had an Asus mobo that wouldn't work right with XP unless I did that.
