    Vista and NF4 RAID

    Hi guys, I did a search of the forums and couldn't find any recent posts about this.

    Has anyone done a clean install of the final released version of Vista on an nForce 4 RAID setup? With RC2, the only way to get Vista running on NF4 RAID was to perform an upgrade install from within XP. Thanks!

    My RC2 installed straight up on my RAID.

    Strange, maybe it was RC1 that I tried then. So no floppy or driver disk and you were good to go? Sweet! I might just go ahead and grab Home Premium OEM at $140 CDN then. Any other NF4 based people out there care to comment? Thanks!

    Vista RC2 wouldn't see my raid array without drivers. I found some drivers online and loaded them with a thumb drive. After that it loaded well. Would still be using it if all my progs worked correctly....had issues with my networked drives dropping out and some games wouldn't work right....so back to XP. Won't be buying Vista for quite a while

    Hmm that's not good, especially considering that we practically have the same mobo. Anyone know what the status is on this in the final version of Vista?
