    I'm having trouble booting XP when Promise 20378 is set as Raid array.
    XP freezes after reading boot.ini off the Maxtor drive (see setup).
    I know this because I added entries in boot.ini to test this.

    Here is my setup:

    Maxtor 200GB drive on PCI Controler Promise Ultra133 TX2 (came with
    the drive as a kit) - running at UDMA/133 and contains my boot

    IDE Channel 1 - 2 other hard drives, running at UDMA/100
    IDE Channel 2 - CD-RW and DVD-drive

    IDE Channel 3 (Promise 20378) - 2 IBM Deskstar 60 GB, Raid 0.

    -Bios is set to boot Maxtor drive. It boots as long as Promise 20378
    is disabled or set as SATA.

    Motherboard bios at 1.6.

    Any ideas?
