A7V133 RAID WinXP (fresh install)
Just a note for anyone planning on this combination, it took me 36hrs and over 144 ounces of coffee to figure it out.
You need a minimum of the 1009 bios and you will need to use the Fastrack "lite" 100 drivers fro XP.
The XP drivers for the Fastrack 100, as it should be, wont be recognized by the "lite" bios Asus bios 1009 installs and wont work under the 1008 bios or lower.
I found the bios on asus.de and the drivers on asus.usa oddly enough.
Reports of more success with a "custom bios" and higher Promise Fast track drivers have been seen but many a newsgroup post ended with no hope and, I figure why not add it to the TechIMO database.
boot problem, full instal Win XP, Asus A7V 133, using RAID, no hard drives found, press f3 to exit setup"No Sig pending"
