    Hello all, read various threads aobut the promise fastrak378 controllers as i
    have two disks set up on Xp on a raid 0.

    I have the 64bit version of vista and have tried the following

    1.created boot disk using jst the files in the xp folder in the root directory

    2.created boot disk using jst the files in the 2003 folder in the root
    directory

    3.created boot disk using files in root and putting xp files in root directory

    none of these appear to work, says its the wrong one and cant load it!!

    Anybody got any suggenstions?

    Hello,

    Vista 64 requires 64-bit drivers that have been signed by the manufacturer
    .... it will not work with 32-bit drivers from windows xp ... are you sure
    that your drivers are 64-bit?

    Give up and try again when RC1 is released? Drivers are no good then
    thats it.

    You could just stick a spare drive in the PC and unplug your raid
    drives and install Vista on a straight IDE, it will no doubt be fine
    then; plus you would not inadvertantly destroy your XP/Raid
    installation, the new Vista boot does some unexpected things, its Beta
    ya know.

    :cool:
