XP chainloads the XP loader from its bootsector. I tried messing about wiht different HPT Windows driver revisions, but no joy. Save the file and reboot. As the raid is in the firmware and not in the chip itself, kernels such as Linux that access hardware directly cannot use this code and need to do software raid. Firstly I have Linux built with an initrd, with the hpt I’m not entirely clear on whether or not you have attempted to install a new OS on this new machine or not..

Go to that address in hexedit and write some words around that mark that you could easily recognise or search for in hexedit later.
Got the message during install “cannot find “battery””. Download What’s New Quick Specs.
HighPoint hpt RAID
It stalled and crashed. However, the firmware is needed to start the computer off the array, and as Windows will use the rom to access the drives anyway, it is perhaps better to retain the disks in the arrangement that the highpoint firmware put them in. I let the native driver under XP grab it, but I have the 2.
I fetch the highpoint proprietary drivers version 2. It is a 4 drive IDE controller. Selecting debian jpt370 loads linux and its initrd into memory using bios calls, which will be striped as per the system setting.
I have to think this is due to the RAID controllers. No shit, it couldn’t find “system”. XP chainloads the XP loader from its bootsector. You can use BIOS loading utility v2.
I’m not entirely clear on whether or not highopint have attempted to install a new OS on this new machine or not. ATAPI support depends on the driver version being used. Run XP upgrade program in a running system. Save the file and reboot. And not hihpoint in this case either. Sun Jan 06, 3: Fri Jan 04, 2: XP will be on hd1,0 and so your ext2fs will be found on hd1,1.
The only solution was resetting the computer and letting it do it again, then resetting the computer and letting it do it again, and so on until on the 5th or 6th reset, when it would suddenly work fine again. Don’t know what to do with nighpoint thing.
Thu Jan 03, Now when RAID is selected in the main award-bios, it loads grub from the rootsector, you can pick XP or a debian kernel. The information block is the only thing that differ’s between drives that are otherwise mirrors of each other.
This can cause mega probels. However, this is only valid for linux up to 2. Mar 26, Posts: This will allow you to write data via the proprietary driver, and later, when the free driver is loaded, you can examine the effect on the disks that form the array, thus giving good clue to writing your own hgihpoint for linux software raid via dmraid.
Anybody have problems with WinXP and HPT370 controllers?
Here’s what happened to me: Mark the available device for booting, the other drives are shown as Hidden in the hpt bios.
