  1. At the time I made this the IATA package was at version 6, now we are at 8.3. The full list of the current Intel Matrix Storage Technolgy chipsets is: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_282A&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2682&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2681&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C6&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C1&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C5&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2653&CC_0106 = "iaStor"
  2. Hmm that is strange, I will PM you so we can troubleshoot it. Crashing is strange, if something wasn't added right it should just skip the driver i believe.
  3. There is another way to obtain the files and it will also work in the feature with newer releases of the drivers. You will need to download the Win32 setup of Intel Matrix Storage driverpackage from Intel.com instead of F6 floppy installer. After that you can extract the files from the downloaded archive, this can be done by launching the iata.exe file from a prompt or the Windows run with the following parameters: \iata621_enu.exe" -A -PC:\IATA This way the files will be extracted to the C:\IATA folder without installing them on your system. the files located in the C:\Extracted\Driver\ folder are the same as the files you will find in the F6 floppy installer.
  4. NVIDIA uses one driverpack for their complete AMD nForce 4 line-up. You can find it here
  5. As an IT professional I can only say that you shouldn't edit files if there is a similar solution for the problem without editing the files. You will get bitten at a later point. Of course I've tried nLite but that tool doesn't just add a driver, it completely changes the installation CD and that my friend is a big issue for me. My cooperation has a Microsoft Open License so we get updated Microsoft CD's. One thing is for sure, nLite doesn't generate files that are the same as Microsoft does. I've got a great ending line for my comment, it is something my teacher said to me in my first years at school and he sure was right. "Only monkey's use tools, you need to know the material itself"
  6. Adding Intel SATA Drivers to an Installation CD IMPORTANT: Follow the installation instructions in the order provided. Failure to complete these steps in the proper order can result in an unsuccessful or unstable installation. This section provides guidelines for people who need to add Intel SATA AHCI of RAID support by creating a custom Windows XP Service Pack 2 Installation CD. Why did i make this? I wasn't satisfied with the information many other people are writing on the Internet and there guidelines are to complex for beginners, intermediates and even experts to understand if they are unfamiliar with this stuff. Steps to add SATA drivers to the CD 1) Copy all the directories and files from the Windows XP CD to a temporary folder (these guidelines will use c:\xpcd) 2) Download the Floppy Configuration Utility from Intel.com 3) Extract all the files from the downloaded file. You can use an extraction tool or if you choose just to run the setup installer the files will be located on a floppy. (these guidelines will use the floppy installer) 4) These files should be located on the floppy disk. a. iaahci.cat b. iaahci.inf c. iastor.cat d. iastor.inf e. iastor.sys f. license.txt g. readme.txt h. txtsetup.oem 5) Create the following path in the temporary folder: c:\xpcd\$oem$\$1\drivers\sata 6) Copy all the files from step 4 to the c:\xpcd\i386 folder. You could delete the readme.txt and license.txt if you want, they are not important for the installation. 7) Also copy all the files from step 4 to the c:\xpcd\$oem$\$1\drivers\sata folder. 8) Open the c:\xpcd\i386\txtsetup.sif file in Notepad. 9) Go to the end of the file. There will be several blank lines. 10) Move the cursor up a few lines. This is necessary because there is a hidden marker at the end of the file. 11) Add the following lines [sourceDisksFiles] iastor.sys= 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 iaAHCI.cat=1,,,,,,,20,0,0 iaAHCI.inf=1,,,,,,,20,0,0 iaSTOR.cat=1,,,,,,,20,0,0 iaSTOR.inf=1,,,,,,,20,0,0 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C5&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C3&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27C1&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2653&CC_0106 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24DF&CC_0104 = "iaStor" PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_25B0&CC_0104 = "iaStor" [sCSI.Load] iaStor = iaStor.sys,4 [sCSI] iaStor = "Intel® 82801 SATA RAID/AHCI Controller (ICH5,6,7)" 12) Save the file and exit notepad. 13) Open the c:\xpcd\i386\winnt.sif in notepad 14) Under the section [unattended], add the following lines: OemPreinstall=yes OemPnPDriversPath=drivers\sata DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore 15) Burn the custom XPCD from the c:\xpcd folder.
