Default RAID config not recognised by Windows XP

Hi,

I have a few PATA HDDs that are installed and set up in RAID configuration (RAID 0/1) through the RAID utility at the start (Ctrl H). Amazingly, Windows explorer, nor the System Disk Manager see them!

Why ?

It's sorted now. That was a problem with the driver I think...

So the BIOS RAID utility could see the drives but not the disk manager. When I reinstalled the driver a few times, in the end I could see these drives through a utility under Windows and then in the Drive manager.

I did not put any detail of my system because I have encountered this problem twice before with different mobos, CPUs and HDDs... So I thought it wasn't really relevant.

But thanks !
