    I tried to use the utility to create the driver files to a floppy disk. Unfortunately I could not get the tool to work. I keep getting various errors about not supported structure. I tried formatting the disk couple of times, but no help there. I even tried mapping a network folder as A:, but that didn't help either. Would somebody be so kind as to put the files up somewhere for a little while so I could give Win8 a try on my old PC. Thanks.

    Hi there blend.


    Here you go - I've uploaded the driver files to megaupload




    Let me know if it fails to work

    I'm too running into the issue with Windows 8.  Fortunately, I'm installing it on a computer I don't really use anymore and I don't mind wiping all content on the drives.  So my issue is that I'm trying to disable the RAID drive completely and use the hard drives as just normal SATA drives; I thought that this would allow me to install them without having to go through that problem.



    Here's the deal though, I went into the Storage Manager and told it to remove them both from RAID (erasing data... which was fine).  However, it's still giving me issues because of the RAID.  If I disable the RAID in BIOS, I don't have the drives show up at all.  I realize this is probably just me missing something, so I'm hoping someone can help me out here - in a typical BIOS, how would I disable RAID and get the drives to just show up in SATA?  I know every BIOS is slightly different, but what should I be looking for?  I know that the drives will likely need to be formatted again - is their some sort of utility that I should run before Windows 8?  I assumed Windows 8 could format them (previous versions of Windows could) but it won't do me any good if they don't show up at all.



    I guess the other thing I might be missing is in the way the drives are hooked up internally.  Are there cables that I should be switching internally to get them to run as normal SATA instead of off the RAID?  I wasn't thinking there would be, but honestly I'm not ultra familiar with RAID setups (I'm pretty computer-literate past that, but I've not really messed with RAIDs a whole lot).



    So... any help you can get is very much appreciated!

    Hi WaterOz


    Every motherboard is different - and very often the BIOS too..

    Best guess is to find (or download) the manual for your motherboard, and follow the guidelines in there.


    As for the drives - you could remove one of the drives - so you're no longer in RAID setup.

    (you will still have to change the settings in BIOS though).


    If it's IDE hard drives - remember to set the dip switch to master (or CS - cable select).


    Wish you luck
