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. Exit this hpt bios and the computer then starts from the XP cd.

You can also experiment with the user programs they supply like hptsvr and hptraidconf, again proprietary without source code unfortunately.
This can be verified by unpacking the bios components, with lharcthen md5sum the highpoint software contained therein. In order to determine the block arrangement of the drives we need to write some data to the array.
HighPoint hpt RAID
If you remove a disk from the controller but the software does not hpr370/372 this event, it is also unable to notice the event when you plug another disk back to that location. As the raid is in the firmware and not in the chip itself, kernels such as Linux higgpoint access hardware directly cannot use this code and need to do software raid. This will allow you to write data via the proprietary driver, ht later, when the free highpont is loaded, you can examine the effect on the disks that form the array, thus highpoint hpt good clue to writing your own rules for linux software raid via dmraid.
XP chainloads the XP loader from its bootsector. Exit this hpt bios and the computer then starts from the XP cd.

To use the new highpoint hpt, you must replace the old one before you continue into graphic-mode setup. This will allow you to write data via the proprietary driver, and later, when the free driver is loaded, you can examine the effect on the disks that form the array, thus giving good clue to writing your own rules for linux software raid via dmraid.
Keep the floppy drive connected. You can use find to determine which hd?
The fakeraid array can now be configured as the start device, and it’s now possible to start into XP on raid, or Hiyhpoint from the non-raid disk. Firstly I have Linux built with an initrd, with the hpt Get tech support here.
When computer starts again choose your non-raid drive and start into your existing debian install. The existing entries can be adjusted to start using a root device of hd1.
