    RAID Boot Disc

    O.K well my PC has arrived.

    Lots of stuff was all incorrectly installed (e.g. - the primary intake fan was mounted in the floppy bay facing a metal and plastic wall, instead of behind the filter).
    When it got here it didn't work.

    I went over the whole thing, read the manulas, double checked, rang the company (about 5 times) and still nothing.

    Eventually I pulled it down to pieces (even removed the cpu chip) and rebuilt it.

    Presto - It worked (go figure)

    Anyway - my problem, I'm trying to make a RAID boot disc and it keeps reading the floppy as B:

    Although my BIOS - defines it as A:

    I've reset the BIOS to default - tinkered around with boot settings - nothing.
    It just keeps telling me to put a floppy into B: and then tells me there is a DOS error for B:

    I've also done an A:dir check in DOSFree and also on B: to which it gave me another error. Asking if I would like to (I) Ignore - (R) Retry - (T) Throw the thig out the window.

    I'm lost

    O.K. small tip - If your floppy drive LED is constantly on - it means the IDE cable is upside down.

    Raid boot disk is in effect
