How do I install PIR133 with the bootable hard disk drive connected to the PIR133 card?
If you want to boot the system from the HD connected to the PIR 133 card, you have to install Windows to that HD. Before starting the installation, you have to make a floppy disk with the driver on it. You should copy the folder, 571B under MultiIO; or the folder, SIL680RAID, under Silicon Image onto a floppy disk. It depends on which driver CD came with your PIR 133 card, since we have 2 different CD versions. Then you connect the HD to the card and start the computer. Before you can load into Windows, you need to press F3 in the BIOS to go to the RAID setup menu and set up the RAID you want. Then you have to install Windows. During the installation, in the very beginning, press F6 and install the driver on the floppy disk you made. Finish installing Windows afterwards.
