Angry To Raid or not to Raid

Hello,

After reading the manual for INNOVISION EIO ATA 133 RAID PCI CONTROLLER DM 8401 I still don't know where lies my problem. After setting up the bios for a stripe setting (0) for my two hdd Seagate 80 GB and everything it's ok so far
1. I don't know what are the files that should be on the disk when booting into the XP setup. After I press F6 (I have put on the floppy disk iteraid, iteraid setup info, iteraid security catalog, iteraid system file and txtsetup.oem) I can choose between raid for NT and raid for 2000/xp and after choosing xp
2. it gives me an error number 18 and I can't go no further. I think the floppy doesn't contain what is supposed to contain or something it's very wrong. I am using xp prof sp 1 included. Please help.

Chris

USually if the file is not on the disk you will not get an Error 18 it will just say it cannot find the correct file.

Hello

Because my second Seagate hasn't arrived I use as a secondary hdd a maxtor 80 gb. Could this be the problem? The message I get is: FILE \WIN2K_XP\ITERAID.SYS CAUSED AN UNEXPECTED ERROR (18) AT LINE 2108 IN D:\XPSP1\BASE\BOOT\SETUP\OEMDISK.C.

If that would only help...

Chris

ITERAID.SYS is the driver for your RAID adapter itself. Generally, files that end in .SYS are drivers under Windows 2K and above.

For the floppy disk, 2K and XP expect to find a txtsetup.oem file, which tells them which files are needed for the driver. This way, it doesn't matter if there are extra files on the floppy disk.

Your problems would suggest that the driver you have doesn't work properly. It might be worth reformatting the floppy disk (Do not select quick format), and copying the files across again in case one of them has been damaged.

Talking It's working

Hello guys,

The problem was that i copied the files in the root and there was a info file that specified the winxp dir as the container of the iteraid.sys. I got an answer from Innovision and they specified the address for downloading the disk as it was created. Now I got my system up and running. Thank you for your help. Rethorical question: it is so hard to include a simple disk next to the cd? Nowhere was specified in the package I received (the controller) the way the disk should be created.
Cheers

Chris

I'd agree with you there! It'd be great to have a nice simple little program that just writes the floppy disk with the right files in the right place. It's not too hard, and there are commercially available tools that will do it!
