Lightbulb 8K3A+ stops on blu-bar screen Windows Xp

Dear Sirs or guys,
I write from Italy and I have the last version of bios,drivers installed on Motherboard 8K3A+ and Raid Conrtroller High Point 372.
The O/S is Windows Xp Professional installed on first disk on Raid-0 (I have created in RAID BIOS Configuration Utility one RAID 0
and two partitions on Raid D:\ and F:\);another disk is on first channel IDE and is C:\ (the O/S place for boot.ini,ntldr etc) and
on Adaptec 2940 UW Pro I have disk E:\ with another O/S -Xp
Just right:
C:\ on IDE primary channel (noO/S but file for boot)
D:\ on controller High Point 372 RAID 0 and O/S installed (on RAID utiliy HDD1 and boot disk)
E:\ SCSI disk and another O/S (windows XP)
F:\ on controller High Point 372 RAID 0 no O/S (on RAID utility disk it's disk hidden)
G:\CD SCSI bootable

In the BIOS ->ADVANCED BIOS FEATURES in CMOS UTILITY BOOT I have settings for boot:
**ATA RAID or SCSI Card Boot: RAID-
**First BOOT:HDD 1-
**Second BOOT :SCSI-
**Third BOOT:SCSI-

Now the problem:
-I installed the first O/S on disk SCSI and I have no problem.
-I installed the second O/S on RAID (Principal O/S ) and work
for some time.
-Now when boot the system and start Windows Xp it's stop
on screen we have the blu-bar on movement and I reboot
it's the same:the system stop.
-I have reinstalled the 0/S and the drivers of many cards and
perfherials more time but its' the same:no problem of drivers.
-I have controlled in the BIOS and **FIRST BOOT DISK is
setting on HDD-0 !! Why?I have setting it on HDD-1!
-I go on RAI BIOS Configuration Utility (Ctrl+H) and the boot disk is HDD-0 !!
-OK for few time the system re-work but I have always the new stop at
blu-bar and,the setting in BIOS it's OK but Ihave only one possibilty:
reinstal everything.No possible work in this situation.

How can I fix this problem?
I hope in your help and thanks in advance for your interesting.
If you have more info don't exitate at contact me.
Best regards.

Sorry but I cant think of a way to get this working easily.

This sort of multi OS setup can be problematic.

I think a reinstall may be the only option (unless somebody else has any ideas)

Good luck with the problem, if you do fix it can you tell us how please
No longer Epox Tech.

Best of luck in the future all my friends.
