LiteOn Sata Cant install XP SP2

vbimport

#1

Hi,

I recently got a LiteOn 20X Sata Optical drive and i cant seem to install XP SP2, Im running on Raid 0’s, bios recognises the sata drive, im able to F6 to install the raid drivers, but when it comes to loading windows, it says something abt a I386 component is missing…i cant seem to get a definitive reply frm some of the posting s i did elsewhere so thot i’d give cdfreaks a try. Mobo is Asus commando running on an intel P965 chipset, the raid controller is ICH8R

Nothing to do with yr LiteOn :slight_smile: Check everything else, RAM modules, install CD etc…

I believe you have to use SATA with no RAID.

@Sestrara

i hv done previous installs on the same exact rig…only thing change is the sata opti drive

@rolling56
U mean to say i cant install xp sp2 via sata opti drive if im using raid 0??


#5

Seems i read that somewhere yes
I personally don’t have RAID so i do not know 1st hand.


#6

That is not true. I installed xp sp2 w/ raid 0 fine using Samsung Sata SH-S183L. My MB is Gigabyte DS3.

So, don’t tell me you try to create RAID with HDD+ODD :slight_smile:
