4PCA3+ V2.2 SATA Raid problems

Hi Guys,

Can anybody point me in the right direction on how to install two WD 36 GB 10K Raptors in Raid? I've been trying all day long and I haven't managed it. I'm probably doing something stupid. The steps I have taken and the furthers I have come:

1. Connect the two raptors to the SATA connections
2. In BIOS put On chip Serial Ata setting to RAID
3. Started Windows XP install
4. Pressed F6 and have inserted floppy labelled Intel ICH5R
5. Continued WXP install.....but windows only finds a single 36GB HDD
6. Format partition and WXP copies setup files
7. After reboot : WXP detects error in hardware configuration...bla,bla,bla

After this I have to start all over again but I'm not going much further than this. Before the Epox I had an Abit IC7-G with which I didn't have any problems installing the SATA drives. What am I doing wrong. Should I hook up a PATA HDD and install WXP on that one and then install drivers to enable the ICH5R SATA option?

Pretty Clueless Now......and had a tooth pulled today...

Did you configure the RAID? After enabling RAID in the BIOS, you will see a new prompt during POST (I think it's CTRL-I). There you have to configure your RAID (RAID 0,1). After this, you could try again to install WinXP.
