NFORCE 4 SATA/RAID , Now Working in Vista? Is it now working? Please Help...
Now, when BETA 1 was released could not wait to try it..

But i had one problem.
i have 2 SATA harddrives, Striped in RAID, on NVIDIA N-Force 4 Controllers.
I also have a normal IDE Harddrive which i want to install Vista on..

Now that is no problem. The problem is, to get vista to see my SATA RAID drives, when im in Vista, under My Computer..

I Read the Windows Vista Beta 1 Hardware Compatibility List, and looked at the:

2.2 IDE/S-ATA/RAID-Controller

Section..

It Said:

[b]Heavy problems, currently incompatible [/b]
S-ATA/IDE/RAID-Controller
nVidia nForce4 S-ATA/P-ATA RAID unsupported, no install / nicht unterst├╝tzt, keine Installation mgl. - In Fact it will KILL with prejudice, any raid partition you have set up as it tries to access the partition. - prepare to lose data if your drives are visible to vista.


So i thought there was no chances..

But now, as the newest biuld came out, i checked the list for the new build..
And then i saw THIS!!:

[b]Has problems, but can be solved [/b]
IDE/S-ATA/RAID-Controller
NVIDIA nForce 4 manuelle Installation WinXP IDE SATA_IDE driver version 5.34/5.35 (32 Bit)





Manual installation??
Can someone help me out here? Someone seems to get it to work..
And it is not listen under the "Heavy Problems" list anymore..

But im such a newbie.. Why havent anyone posted a guide?
I dosent help people to just say "Manuelle Install",,
can someone help, please?
