    This is a strange problem, the 1st occurrence in a over thousand XP installs. My very special XP install disc recognizes the RAID mode of an Intel DP35DP-based system. In fact, my BartPE/WinPE disc recognizes the board's controller as well, so I *thought* this would be a simple job, that is to reinstall Windows XP. Not true. XP setup zips through the text mode setup *and* the GUI mode setup, then prior to launching XP itself, a BSOD flashes on the screen for one sec and the system immediately reboots. XP displays the 'Safe Mode' menu, times out, BSODs, then loops thru this sequence again and again.

    The BSOD is gone so fast, I can't see the stop code. I have my suspicions, but no facts. Is there anything I can do to make this work ? Perhaps, someone else has encountered this problem and worked out a fix ?

    Anyway, thanx for taking the time to read this....:- MR -:
