I have a computer with an existing Windows 98 SE installation on an
IDE hard drive connected as master on the primary ide controller.
The motherboard has an integrated raid controller with two additional
I want to add two more IDE hard drives in a RAID 0 (striping)
configuration) and install Windows 2000 on the Raid array.
My question is if I do this will Windows 2000 recognize the prior
Windows 98 installation on the existing hard drive and provide a
dual-boot menu option?
My understanding is that I boot from a Windows 2000 CD and hit F6 to
load the raid drivers from a floppy, and then install on the Raid
array, formatting to FAT32, and then both operating systems will be
able to read and write files to all drives. Is this correct? Is this
the best way to proceed? Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
