Setting Up a “RAID Ready” System
You can also set up a “RAID Ready” system with a single SATA / SATAII
hard disk. A “RAID Ready” system can be seamlessly upgraded to RAID 0,
RAID 1 or RAID 5 at a later date by using RAID migration feature of Intel
Matrix Storage. The following steps outline how to build an Intel “RAID
Ready” system.
1. Assemble the system and attach a single SATA / SATAII hard drive.
2. Set up system BIOS as step 1 of page 6. When done, exit Setup.
3. Make a SATA / SATAII driver diskette as step 2 of page 6. Begin
Windows
®
setup by booting from the installation CD.

®
setup, press F6 to install a third-party
RAID driver. When prompted, insert the SATA / SATAII driver diskette
containing the Intel
®
RAID driver. After reading the floppy disk, the driver
will be presented.
STEP 4: Install Windows
®
XP / XP 64-bit OS on your
system.
After making a SATA / SATAII driver diskette and using “RAID
Installation Guide” to set RAID configuration, you can start to install
Windows
®
XP / XP 64-bit on your system. At the beginning of
Windows setup, press F6 to install a third-party RAID driver. When
prompted, insert the SATA / SATAII driver diskette containing the
