Hi Chad:

With This driver:
HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver for Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003
version 5.2.3790.0 (19 Jan 05)

and two 80 SATA drives RAID 1,

Windows 2003 Manual install and F6 Worked Fine for me.

I am Trying windows 2000 ;
on Three Attempts with USB floppy and USB cdrom - I got stop 7b inaccessable boot device 3 Times with same CD media; so then I tried different 2000 setup disk; and it went through fine.

- When I disabled the Software Raid in the bios, The install for windows 2000 with smartstart 7.20 also worked fine.

Best regards,


Hey, look a light at the end of the tunnel.
