Please, does somebody knows why i get this behavior in windows xp setup´_
1.- Boot from the cd
2.- Press F6 to install intel raid drivers
3.- Xp found my drivers on the floppy and recognize the raid volume
4.- Xp format my volume
5.- When It starts copying files it complains that it can't copy iaStor.sys.. But it's on the floppy!!!!!!... and xp loaded it!... It even reads from the floppy but the bastard says that it can't copy the file... WHY!?!?!? :)

I get the same behavior even if i don't configure the raid volume.... I can only install xp if i disable raid at all in the bios...

I know that my post is not about the main topic of this forum, but there's a lot of knowledge here so please forgive me and please help me if you can. Thanks for reading :rolleyes:

It is not floppy fault. It is your installation messed a bit up. I had same problem with SI Raid. I redid my whole unattended install and all ok now.
