    Vista does not recognize my RAID 0. I tried the XP driver but it doesn't work.
    I've two Samsung 74GB S-ATA hard disks. Setup shows only one hard disk.

    chipset: nForce 3-250

    What can i do?

    This guide is for nForce4. My board is nForce3. I tested XP driver but it
    doesn't work.

    What is your motherboard and what is the controller chip
    your RAID 0 is on?

    I have read what drivers are in the nForce3 package and
    there is no SATA or RAID drivers mentioned. That would tend
    to lead me to think there is some other controller chip on
    your board that needs a different driver - perhaps Silicon
    Image?

    I've a Biostar 210P Barebone. Its definitively nForce3.

    Raid is avtive.
    Now Windows XP is installed on my Raid.

  7. You will need to wait until such time as NVIDIA decides to release raid
    based drivers for Windows Vista to the OEMs so the OEMs can tweak them to
    their own specifications. This assumes of course that NVIDIA will decide to
    do this for the Nforce 3 chipsets. I was running raid 0 myself but Vista
    builds 5600 and 5728 would not work so I disabled the raid and I am just
    running a normal SATA drive now with build RC2 5744 which works very well.

    I had seen where some of the nForce3 boards used other
    controllers for SATA so I thought it might be worth checking
    out.
