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

    Well, I did that but came up with a blue screen error during installation of windows called Bad_Pool_Header 0X00000019 (0x00000020, 0xE108C000,0XE108C070,0X0CE0400) I tried rebooting and installing windows again, but only came up with a blinking cursor..... thoughts???
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Ok, I unpacked everything, and did another nlite disk. Upon reconfiguring my system with the 2 raptors I rebooted and set the BIOS in my Asus A8N32SLI Deluxe to boot from cd. Everything was fine, but the disks were not recognized by windows as a RAID array. I rebooted, and set the Bios (version 1303) as NvRaid, with SATA 1 and 2 set for RAID. Upon rebooting again, I hit F10 and went into the RAID configuration and set it up as Striping, with 128 connectivity, and moved the 2 raptors into the array. Upon rebooting again, the POST screen displayed that everything was fine with the RAID array. I went back and started installing windows, however at the partition section, there were 2 unpartitioned sections, both at 147 gigs I believe. I went through this 2 or 3 times trying to get the partition to show all 300 gigs on one partition (was only showing half). I couldn't get it done though. I finally thought I was reading it wrong, and partitioned one of the partitions at 20 gigs and started installing windows. However after that, I ran into 2 blue screens, one with a bad spool, one with a bad sector (I think.. ) Finally I gave up on RAID, and just installed windows, however the first time it came back saying I was missing the asms file off of Service pack 2. Upon rebooting and trying again, it went through and completed. However, it would never start, This was setup on only one drive, and as soon as the windows screen would show, it would reboot. I finally hooked up my old drive, and here I am now. Can you advise what steps to do for a fresh nlite cd? I don't know if that was my problem or what... ? Thank you very much...
  3. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Ok, this is my first post, I've been trying to get my nlite CD up and running to format my computer and reinstall windows on a RAID 0 array. I've been working on integrating the NvRaid drivers in with the cd, but I'm curious, there is nothing mentioning what to do once the file is downloaded. You mention to "unpack" it, but all I get from Nvidia's website is an executable file. I can't unpack it, only run it. Since this isn't something I want to do, What do I need to do with the file? Do I need to create a file on the desktop and put the exe file in it by itself? What should the folder be called? All nlite offers during integration is a search for an ini file. Is this what the folder would be afterwords if the exe file is all that's in it? Thanks... anxiously awaiting reply...
