I wiped everything out and tried again. Highpoint recommended that hard disks on IDE sockets were not connected at this time as XP insists on writing the bootloader to those drives instead of the fakeraid array if they were connected. You can use BIOS loading utility v2. To solve this problem you can do the upgrade as below: Belmont Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius Registered:

Firstly I have Linux built with an initrd, with the hpt You can use BIOS loading utility v2. Missing this and that, I told it to ignore lots of things.
HighPoint hpt RAID
You’ll want the other devices available anyway to be able to mount the filesystem’s on them. Also, here’s a quote from the highpoint: Aug 26, Posts: Highpoint recommended that hard disks on IDE sockets were not connected at this time as XP insists on writing the bootloader to those drives instead of the fakeraid array if they were connected.
There are more information ddevice this issue on Microsoft support site: XP hard locks when I tried installing detonator drivers 6th: I haven’t switched to the 2. You now need to regenerate the initrd on the fakeraid partition now, i.
I have to think this is due to the RAID controllers. Jul 20, Posts: Also, My usb mouse wasn’t detected. Fri Jan 04, 2: Those errors during install possibly point to hardware problems. Dfvice all the time. Firstly determine what highpoint floppy drivers are needed, they do need to correspond with the software on the eeprom.
ATAPI support depends on the driver version being used. Missed CDrom and usb devices. Anyway, first attempt at clean install was a failure.
HighPoint hpt370 RAID
The only solution was resetting rald computer and letting it do it again, then resetting the computer and letting it do it again, and so on until on the 5th or 6th reset, when it would suddenly work fine again.
This can be verified by unpacking the bios components, with lharcthen md5sum the highpoint software contained therein.
Wed Jan 02, Tue Jan 01, 8: I suggest making the 0x the first character of an english word in hex, and 0xF the last character of another english word. After OS installation complete, you can put them back. Have any more specific info on the problem?
Sun Jan 06, 4: Belmont, I had the similar problems with Win98SE with the 2. It is a 4 drive IDE controller. This will allow you to write data via the proprietary driver, and later, when the 3372 driver is loaded, you can examine the effect on the disks that form the array, thus giving good clue to writing your own rules for linux software raid via dmraid.
Anybody have problems with WinXP and HPT370 controllers?

However, the firmware is needed to start the computer off the array, and as Windows will use the rom to access the drives anyway, it is perhaps better to retain the disks in the arrangement that the highpoint firmware put them in. It installed fine, but I would get numerous lockups and rraid various bad things.
