After OS installation complete, you can put them back. You now need to regenerate the initrd on the fakeraid partition now, i.

You can use find to determine which hd? Download What’s New Quick Specs. Save these drivers on a floppy. You must force a refresh action before changing the disk.

I chose the Windows XP version. Firstly I have Linux built with an initrd, with the hpt You now need to regenerate the initrd on the fakeraid partition now, i. Selecting debian typically loads linux and its initrd into memory using bios calls, which will be hpt307/372 as per the system setting. Save the file and reboot.


Now when RAID is selected in the main award-bios, it loads grub from the rootsector, you highpoint hpt pick XP or a debian kernel. Help us by reporting it.


Do a similar thing around the 0x mark, then you can re-install your kernel from your binary. Please review this file for important information about hihgpoint issues and differences in operation that were discovered after our product manuals were created.

You’ll want the other devices available anyway to be able to mount the filesystem’s on them.

Go to that address in hexedit and write some words around that mark that you could easily recognise or search for in hexedit later. We will get some error with entry.

Running grub when linux is resident in memory prevents it using the bios routines, and consequently it sees the raw drives rather than the fakeraid array. In case of conflict among various parts of the documentation set, this file contains the most current information.

Do a similar thing highpoint hpt the 0x mark, then you can re-install your kernel from your highpoint hpt In order to determine the block arrangement of the drives we need to write some data to the array. Firstly determine what highpoint floppy drivers are needed, they do need to correspond with the software on the eeprom. This only seems to create the mapper devices when the hpt3370/372 is activated, and that was during the initrd, so they’ve disappeared by now.


It is a 4 highpoint hpt IDE controller. However, the firmware hpt370/327 needed to start the computer off the array, and as Windows will use the rom to access the drives anyway, it is perhaps better to retain the disks in the arrangement that the highpoint firmware put them in. As the raid is in the firmware and highpolnt in the chip itself, kernels such as Linux that access hardware directly cannot use this code and need to do software raid. I suggest making the 0x highooint first character of an english word in hex, and 0xF the last character of another english word.

To solve this problem you can do the upgrade as below: Get tech support here. Keep the floppy drive connected.

I fetch the highpoint proprietary drivers version 2. Get tech support here. Keep the floppy drive connected. The latest firmware and product documentation will be available for download at http: Highpoint recommended that hard disks on IDE sockets were not connected at this time as XP insists on writing the bootloader to hkghpoint drives instead of the fakeraid array if they were connected.
