Hello,

Does anyone have a solution to machine hanging and freezing during an upgrade of 2KProf to XP. Occurred during the installation step - now I can neither continue the upgrade or stepback to the Win 2KProf.

Thanks

Now, something has slipped me - I have been doing this upgrade on a RAID Drive. Should I have broken the RAID before attempting the upgrade?

You mean...you have a 1-drive RAID?

No - 2 drives in a RAID-1 config.

Well...in order to install XP on any RAID setup...you must first get XP to install the RAID driver so that it can recognize the configuration.

The RAID driver must come from either the motherboard manufacturer's or the system manufacturer's respective website.
