nice post m8
Had to completely reformat hdd before I got it going.
Something to do with XP, fat 32 and ntfs...
Download the X32 drivers from Intel.
...you need the X32 drivers for MD96290
And have a read of this...
This will be very useful...
Save to a floppy...one for each.
You have to use FDD to unpack the drivers to somewhere on comp.
(Make a folder on desktop to make it easier and save there).
Go to A:/ drive, copy and paste to folder then use nlite to add to i386...
Put your XP installer CD in the drive.
Start nLite, browse to your CD drive. Select it and hit "Next".
Browse to the location where you'll store the modified XP installer (make a new folder for it if needed). Hit "Next".
In the list of nLite options, click on "Make Bootable ISO" and "Load Additional Drivers".
When asked to add drivers in nLite, select the "Single Driver" button and browse to the folder with the SATA drivers.
Select the F6 floppy folder, and then select the iastor.inf file
From the text mode driver list, select the ICH7M SATA/RAID drivers, and nothing else.
Hit "Next" and when you get to the end, either create an .ISO or burn a CD for the modified XP installer.
should load without having to use the FDD...thats what nlites for
