Windows x64 Install on Promise 378 RAID
Hello,
I have an Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard and have a RAID 0 Array set up where i
need to install Windows x64 Ultimate edition. I have searched all over the
net but no body seems to be able to install Windows Vista on the Promise 378
Raid controller.
I have contacted both Promise and Asus and nether seem to think it is their
problem.
I really would like to get it working has anyone managed to install Vista
using the Promise 378?
Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated.
Chris.

Re: Windows x64 Install on Promise 378 RAID
Can't offer any help other than tell you that it "appears" Asus is having an
across the board RAID/SATA problem on this series of motherboards. I have
the A8N32-SLI Deluxe and the nForce4 drivers do not work when I try to
install x64 to a (non-RAID) SATA drive. Loads fine to an IDE drive and
runs. Nvidia is "looking into" the problem.

I've done a lot of research the past few days but yours is the first post
mentioning the Promise as being a problem. I'm assuming you also have the
32 bit version - can you load that? Tried x64 in a non-RAID mode? Be sure
the BIOS has RAID turned off.

Re: Windows x64 Install on Promise 378 RAID
Hello,

At present i do not own Vista. I am waiting to buy it, but i am not prepared
to buy whilst it has compatbility issues with hardware that has been about
for over 12 months.

To be honest i am not even that bothered about getting x64 the 32 bit would
do but that also seems to be having the same problems with the Promise
Fastrak 378 drivers. I have not actually heard of anyone being able to get it
working yet.

Hopefully someone may have got these working and can post a response that
can help.

Cheers,

dj_ely
