  1. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    ups sorry bout that Fernando 1! i guess you can remove my post with all the files that i quoted. i already read some of the stuff in that forum and it's hopefully helping! i'll ask them for more help if i need it. thanks again
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    boxer2007: generally, the floppy should contain the txtsetup.oem and you need to use that for the "text mode" driver and then only if you're installing a SATA drive or RAID array. (in windows it's the short seconds when you see the message "press F6 to install SCSI drivers" or smth like that.) if you have any other directories not containing a txtsetup.oem but rather "inf" files you have to use them in the "unattend" (graphical install) part. (or manually after windows has loaded.) so the short answer is yes copy them and use them if you have SATA drives or hardware that does not work properly with the default windows drivers. but then again i'm also awaiting a reply on my setup for this strange nforce chipset which brakes some rules...
  3. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    hello everybody! i'm expecting my new Abit AN8 32 SLI motherboard (Si3132+nvraid) in a few days and i've been reading posts related to the unattend installation of the nforce4 SATA drivers - i dont own a floppy and i need to install the stuff on my SATA drive. apparently there are some serious problems with the SATA controllers (found out too late, wouldnt have ordered it but oh well ). anyway i already have my viasraid set up and working on my winxp sp2 customized CD (for my old board that i'm still using) and i was wondering if anybody has the text files and folder structure for the nvraid. i prefer not to use any program to do the setup, i'm happier when i know exactly what and where to add rather than hope some utility will do the job correctly my current/future drive config: seagate 160GB sataII (3gbps) -- using a jumper now to slow down to 1.5gbps due to motherboard limitations, seagate 120Gb IDE, NEC 8xDVD, liteon 32x cd-writer, both IDE. here's what i set up (will test in a few days when i get the board). i'm using the latest 6.86 nforce4 drivers from their site. ---------------------- WINNT.SIF: [unattended] OemPreinstall=Yes

dir (along with the viasraid). i know that this line SI3132.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1 needs compressed drivers and this line nvatabus.sys = 1,,,,,,4,4,1,,,1,4 needs the uncomressed sys (from what i've read on these and other forums) so i'm curious if that's gonna work. i only tested the first format with compressed files up to now. ---------------------- as you see i basically used the same setup as my currently working viasraid sata driver. so now i'm wondering if i should change anything like use OemInfFiles for the driver installations or remove some stuff from OemPnPDriversPath or just leave it as it's now. any suggestions? a copy of your (working) setup files and dir would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
