  1. Ok, got my machine running now! Thanks to you, Fernando!! At the and it really was the XP cd that was wrong. Using a clean XP + floppy's did the magic. Still got a lot of problems though, like my internet doesn't work, can't find my extra added harddisks, but that's for another topic, right? Thanks for the help!
  2. A 64bit OS like XP x64 is more sensitive regarding the RAM timings than a 32bit OS like XP. Yes, you should always take a clean source. I bet, that you will succeed with the installation, when you create a new nLited Cd with integrated nForce SataRaid drivers according my guide (first post). Ok, I'll give it a go tonight. Thanks, and I'll let you know if it worked.
  3. Thanks for your reply! My RAM is fine, which I can tell because it worked yesterday, before I started formatting. I really need XP, because my ISP (internetprovider) doesn't support Vista yet (kinda weird 'eh?). What you tell about my XP cd can be correct, because it isn't a clean CD. But when I looked for the WINNT.SIF file, it wasn't to be found. So if it isn't there, my cd should work properly, right? Or is it useful to create a clean DVD and try that?
  4. Ok, i'm pretty desperate right now. Tried everything I could think of, and it still doesn't work. Here's the situation (please don't be afraid to read this amount of text, I tried to give as much info as I could); Specs: AMD Athlon 64 3500+ ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe 2x Kingston ValueRAM 512MB (Dual Channel) 2x Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 250 GB (Raid0, nvRaid) [2x Samsung SpinPoint T166 500GB (Raid0, Silicon Image, not attached to avoid extra problems)] Software/drivers: 6.86_nforce_winxp64_international_WHQL nvRaid version 4.84 Story: After my previous Windows version (XP Pro 32-bit) had worked pretty good for about a year, I thought it might be a good idea to clean my disks and try Windows Vista. So I did. Had some trouble with Silicon drivers at first, but I got it to work. Although the looks of Vista were good, I hated it because of the change in menuing. So I trew Vista off. Next thing I did was completely formatting my 2 hitachi's, and then trying to install Windows XP Pro 64-bit. Here all the trouble began. At first I had to load the Silicon Image drivers, but NONE of them worked (I've really tried every single driver, at every single website at the net). My PC kept hanging at the point of "Setup cannot copy file: Si3114r.sys" and so on with the rest of the driver files. Pretty desperate and tired of making new floppy's all the time, I searched for another way to get the drivers loaded. I couldn't find one, but what I read was that I could also use the black SATA-ports at my motherboard, which weren't Silicon Image's ports, but nVidia's. New driver to try!! Again, downloaded all drivers for nVidia raid setup to be found at the net, and again without succes! Same point of hanging, although now with files like "nvRaid.sys". Time for another way. Then I saw the method with nLite. I gave it a try, and it worked... although not entirely. Problem: When I putted the nLite edited Windows XP Pro 64-bit DVD in my PC, it worked very well. My PC didn't hang at a file it couldn't copy, it even completed the Windows installation! I thought my life was useful again, and that I would be soon welcomed by the Windows startup sound, as the PC was rebooting after it's installation. Here my feelings were hurt again. Just before the moment when you see the Windows XP logo at a black background with the loading bar underneath it, a blue screen of death suddenly appeared. Rebooting didn't work, it came again. I even formatted the disks again I tried installing Windows again, but with the same result; a f***ING blue screen!! *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFFADFE480F3C0,0xFFFFFFFFC0000034,0x0000000000000000,0x0000000000000000) Solutions: I really don't know what to do anymore. It's just so annoying! Can anybody please help me. Post a reply, send a PM or email. Any help would be grately appreciated!
