Installing Vista with RAID0 - NTLDR issues
Ok, I am running a clean install of Vista Business on a Dell XPS420. I
installed a 2nd HDD and booted the computer. I used the Intel ROM
utility and setup the RAID0. Setup the BIOS for RAID etc.

and the latest ATI drivers (I had on a stick ready) and it wanted to
Now I get a NTLDR error at bootup. The BIOS says there is no HDD to
boot (in the boot sequence) but in the Drivers section, it shows both

installation and found problems with my computer's startup options. It
asks if I want to apply repairs and restart, I say YES! It comes up with
a 'Failed to save startup options' box.
Whats up?!?! Driving me crazy!
