To install WIN2k3, it depends on your setup.

If your server came with NO OS at all, then you want to go in your BIOS, make sure "Boot from CD-ROM" is selected first. Put in your WIN2k3 CD and begin the installation process.

To install software Raid after the installation of WIN2k3, follow these steps:

1. Right click on My computer and go to Manage

2. Scroll down to Disk Management and select the drive you want to install Raid on.

3. Right click and convert it to Dynamic. (Know that whatever you convert to Dynamic, you will lose any information on that drive during the conversion process). I would recommend NOT doing it on your C Drive.

4. After it converts, you can select which type of RAID you want, such as stripe, simple, mirroring, and so forth.
