    I've got a P4C800-E Deluxe MB with BIOS 1016. I have 2 Samsung 160GB IDE drives on the
    Promise PRI IDE Raid Port ( Raid 1 ). I also have 2 Hitachi 250GB SATA drives connected to the Promise
    SATA Raid Ports ( Raid 0 ). When i try and install xp it wants to install on the sata raid drives
    not my ide raid drives. I can install a partition c: within the setup for the ide raid but it still wants to be put on
    the sata raid.

    Any ideas ?

    Go into the BIOS and change the hard drive order around. Can't remember the
    exact menu it's on, I think it might be on the boot page or the one next to
    If you're still having problems then unplug all but one drive during the
    If it's too late and you've installed to d: for example then you can change
    this in the registry fairly easily.
