Clean install with RAID drives
I have a computer that has two drives that are RAID. will the clean install
make the raid drives disappear? i also have a scsi drive that i use for
video editing, will vista see that drive? i don't care about any other
settings or software. i have windows xp pro, i was going to use the
business upgrade. thanks

Re: Clean install with RAID drives
You will need a driver for your RAID drives. What adapter are you using?
Then check if Vista supports that RAID hardware out of the box or check at
the manufacturers/mobo vendors site.

Typically you have to supply the driver with a floppy or USB memory stick
while installing. that is only if Vista doesn't have to driver on the DVD.

Good luck

Re: Clean install with RAID drives
Since i'm using the business upgrade version, if i do a regular install
instead of a "clean install" would all the drive settings still be in place?
thanks !
