XP Pro can't find hardrives

Custom / Asus p4c800-e

Specs: Windows XP, 2GB

Clean install after using WipeDrive.
XPPro can't see hard-drives. (RAID config)
XPPro only seems to want a particular file from A-drive. (Textsetup.oem)
Which does not exist on ASUS cd.
ASUS and system-builder have been useless so far...
All driver download sites are just adverts for DriverDetective, etc...
Which won't do any good as-
I am using another computer right now, and fo course they require a functioning OS.

Create raid according to promise's documentation. Then use their drivers when installing xp.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Their documentation leaves something to be desired. ;-0
However, found makedisk utility (which created *.oem file).
Back up now.
