    I am new at working the any RAID systems so I my be just a dummy as these
    things go but here goes my problem:

    I have a GigaByte GA-8PE800 ULTRA motherboard with GigaRAID. I can't seem to
    find a good set of files to install as I try to install along with Windows
    XP. It either can't find something or my latest error message:

    File \WIN2K_XP\iteraid.sys caused an unexpected error (4096) at line 2113 in

    With Gigabytes tech supports suggestion, I removed the jumper from my WD
    hard drives and I final quit getting the error message as I booted that it
    couldn't locate either channel. Now on boot up it does indicate the drives
    are there, BUT they do not show in Windows.

    Should the drives be formatted in another machine before installing as the
    RAID array, or should they show up somewhere in Windows that I can access
    them and then do the format??

    As I look at the hardware in Windows, it shows my other hard drive where the
    OS is located, and it also shows there is a disk array, but will not access
    the array so I can even attempt a format.

    Any help?

  2. Are you trying to set up a RAID 0 or a RAID 1?

    unexpected error (4096) at line 2113

    I know it has been almost over a year since the last post was created for this error. I was unable to find the resolution to this problem on any other sites so I thought I would provide some help.

    If you created an image on the floppy disk from the manufacturer, that would create the "unexpected error (4096) at line 2113" message when installing WinXP. What I did to resolve this problem was to copy the driver files for WinXP and the files located on the main folder of the zip file onto the root directory of your floppy disk. Then when installing WinXP and pressing the F6 button, the option to install the third party drivers will be available and the "unexpected error (4096) at line 2113" is no longer there. Hope this helps someone.

    Once I copied the whole WinXp folder to the floppy, the install program new exactly where to find the files (Very weird. Live and learn). Keep directory structures intact. Don't remove files from directories.
