XP won't boot after Adaptec 19160 replaced with Adaptec 2100S Raid card

XP was originally installed on a workstation with an Adaptec 19160 controller. I replaced it with an Adaptec 2100S controller for a RAID 1 setup instead of having to frequently back up the drive by manually using Ghost to image it to a second removable drive. However, XP won't come up. It either reboots itself or I get the screen asking if I want to boot in Safe Mode, Last known good configuration or normally. Adaptec says XP has the necessary drivers for the 2100S. I'm assuming XP is messed up because it's looking for the 19160 card. Is there anyway to get it to recognize the 21ooS correctly or do I have to reinstall the OS? Thanks...
