    I have HP xw8200 with on-board SATA RAID and 2x160GB SATA in RAID0, but no
    64-bit drivers. Installing 64-bit Windows, I'm stuck at F6. HP is
    advertising this machine as Win64 and even selling 64-bit upgrade kit. Anyone
    out there using similar configuration?

  2. HP is your source for drivers. If they haven't provided drivers for it, then
    you're pretty much out of luck. You can always check at www.planetamd64.com
    for drivers for your RAID controller. Sometimes things show up there before
    they do in the "official" sources.

    This may sound silly, but have you contacted HP? I went with Dell and they
    made the same promises. They will certainly hear from me if/when things
    don't work as advertized. First system in over a decade I bought
    pre-built... excluding laptops. I took a hit on the old ego, but the price
    was too sweet to pass on, and I was banking on those promises for
    compatibility, just as I'm sure you were.

    Have you tried installing before enabling the RAID? Wouldn't that be a
    possibility?
