Centos 5.3 x64 installation problem

Welcome to the CentOS fora.

1. Installing on RAID0 is not advisable - no redundancy -> if either disk fails you are dead in the water.
2. CentOS 5.3 is pretty old. New installs should always use the current release - at this time 5.4.
3. You may need to wipe the hard disk[s] using a LiveCD or rescue mode from the installation media.
4. If you need more help, please provide more hardware details, such as (from LiveCD, rescue, or other Linux)[code]
/sbin/lspci -m
/sbin/fdisk -l
