XP and SATA-RAID


A

ASMSE

I am wanting to install XP on a SATA-RAID set and need to know Which XP
version has a SATA-RAID driver on it. I have tried using the driver that came
with my MoBo on a floppy but once I install SP2 I get the Blue Screen of
Death with an error message. I have begun to believe that SP2 has a SATA-RAID
driver that conflics with my MoBo driver and I don't know how to extract it
from the SP2 CD. It would be cheaper for me to be able to extract it from the
CD if possible but if not, I guess I'll need to get a newer version of XP
because money is tight right now I really don't have the option of upgrading
to Vista because of the resources it requires. I hope someone out there can
help me

Integrate SP3 directly into your CD - usiong the /integrate switch with the
'Network" download of SP3 or by using something like nLite or AutoStreamer.

Download the latest driver for your SATA/RAID controller from your
motherboard manufactuyrer's web page and use it to install from your newly
created bootable Windows XP CD with SP3.

No matter which service pack might be integrated to the xp cd (SP2 or SP3),
this should not be an issue on installation.Once youre RAID set is
configured,
boot to xp cd,press the F6 key when prompted,once at RAID/SATA driver
install,load the floppy as it asks,then one has to repeat the procedure again
(reselect controller from floppy),once selected,you'll get the option to
select
the drivers from floppy (not useing drivers from cd),once it completes,press
enter key,it'll then proceed to xp installation menu from xp cd.Either
youre RAID
set isnt configured,youre not selecting the right controller from the
floppy list.

No versions of Windows XP (Home, Pro, MCE) usually have a SATA RAID
controller driver built in, unless the RAID controller is an Intel
(???) one.

Dear Mr. Stanley,
Your post was very helpful. I did get my XP disk to slipstream with my
service Pack 2 disk but I could not get it to boot Windows so I could not
reinstall Windows. I would like to know how I can get the new slipstreamed
disk to be bootable. If you would be so kind as to let me know I would really
appreciate it. I did have to use Nlite to get the preferred result as the
other program you sugested would not complete the operation for some reason.
i hope you will help me.

Thank You

Look at either Autostreamer or nLite. These utilities help you to
create a bootable ISO image of your new revised CD.

Dear smlunitick,
Your post was helpfull. I did get the ISO image to stat Windows
installation but, when I came to the part where the GUI started I got the
error message window needs the ASMS file from service pack 3 CD (I did
slipstream SP 3 instead of SP 2). It showed the path as something like
"GLOBALROOT\CDDRIVE0" etc. but when I clicked on go it didn't go. I also
tried to point it to the i386 folder on the CD drive but it still wouldn't
go. I made sure the file was on the disk and it was. So what am I doing
wrong? I hope you can help me. I have really apreciated everybody's help so
far and would really like to give someone an answered question mark.

Did you boot the PC from the CD or are you attempting to install when
in XP?

thats when I got the error message. (yes I still had the CD in the drive)

dear smlunatic,

Thank You for your help. I believe I have come to the conclusion that
my CD drive is faulty. It occured to me finally to look at my log files and
look through them to check for errors. I found that I have many, and I mean
MANY warnings and error messages about my CD drive and also my ATAPI for my
IDE connection to the drive. i am going to give you an answered rating
because I believe under other circumstances your answer would have worked.
Thanks again.
