I have been running 2 raptor hard drives in raid o ,on the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard,conected to the
Silicon Image sata controller,and had no problems at all. my system is as follows:-

Enermax EG851AX-VH 660W ATX PSU

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Socket 939 Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Winchester 90nm (Socket 939)

Gainward GeForce 6800GT 256MB X 2 FOR SLi SET UP

Western Digital Raptor 74gb X 2

Zalman 7700-Cu (120mm) CPU Cooler

Twinmos PC3200 DDR-DIMM 1024 x 2 = 2048MB

DVD RW Drive

Floppy Drive

Then i read that for the best performance they should be conected to the nforce sata controller,so with that i
clean my drives of and reconected them to the nforce sat ports ,reconfiquerd the bios to suit,reload windows xp,
and the correct drivers that came with the installation cd at F6 command,then got to the end of the install and screen went blue and kept rebooting,
it self,so i started with the install all over again,but same thing happened at the end again.

I have tryed the Silicon controller with the same set up again,and have no problems at all,it is the nforce that is the problem.i have double checked,all
the conection and bios settigs,so can someone help me out ??
