8RDA3+ set up?

I want to install windows xp on my 8rda3+. I have one SATA drive (wd raptor). Do I need a special driver for SATA when I install win xp or will xp be able to deal with it? The driver disk seems to be for raid, which I'm not using.

When installing XP, right at the beginning, it will ask you for scsi/raid drivers. Just use the one supplied with the 8rda3+ and all will be fine. I did this with my same setup and everything is fine. The WD Raptor rocks by the way - just saving up to buy another one to put in raid 0!

I guess you mean the one thats on the epox cd? I'm alittle confused because both the driver on the CD and on the floppy are RAID drivers.

I used the floppy, didn't realise the CD had it too. Anyway, the fact that it says RAID doesn't matter, it's only the SATA part you need, which happens to be the same driver. It'll work, don't worry.
