  1. Thanks Fernando, you've been a great help. I found that out just now too and read it. It seems that is the problem, but after reading that, I still don't understand why I am getting this and how to prevent it as these are SATA drives on XP, not SCSI But thanks for your help.
  2. well, I turned on my other hard drive (which has Vista installed) and booted into it with both HD's on. Opened up the boot.ini on the drive I just installed XP on and it says: [boot loader] timeout=1 default=signature(ca2d9e57)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] signature(ca2d9e57)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect When I change it to what you gave me: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0
  3. Thanks for your help, I too didn't think it would be related to nLite, but I'm puzzled. I only have one hard drive turned on, it only has one partition. Every time I've tried it, I did a format. I've tried both Quick and Regular format. It installs fine, but then during the reboot, it goes into a reboot cycle because the boot.ini is wrong. Like I said, I now I can edit the boot.ini and make it correct, but I am trying to test this CD and make sure everything works properly so the next time I install XP, I don't have to go through these hoops. If you are as stumped as I am at this point, I
  4. Ok, I am able to get much further now. I can now use my nLite disc to install XP. However, for some reason it is creating the boot.ini with TWO systems: [boot loader] timeout=1 default=signature(ca2d9e57)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] signature(ca2d9e57)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect which is causing the computer to go through reboot cycles because it thinks there are two operating systems an
  5. If you haven chosen the "Unattended Install", you should not hit F6.Have you tried to enable all possible AHCI Controllers while integrating the Intel textmode drivers with nLite? I understand you do not hit F6 while using a slipsreamed disc because the drivers load automatically. I don't think I wrote it clearly the first time. When I could not get it to work using the slipsreamed, I backed up and used a NON slipsreamed disc and installed a floppy to load the drivers off the floppy to see if that would work. Doing it this way, of course, I DO hit F6 to install the drivers, however, I was
  6. Fernando, Thanks for your help. Since I was getting the Unknown.sys cannot copy during install, I found a floppy drive and thought I'd try it the "old fashioned" way to see if that would even work, instead of slipstreaming the file. I get the same error "cannont copy Unknown.sys" even when using the floppy method. When doing the floppy method, you don't have any options of textmode or INF drivers. I have a Dell XPS 410, so I went to Dell's support page, downloaded the SATA exe driver for my computer, extracted it to the floppy. When I hit F6, and loaded the floppy, there were only four op
  7. Excellent write up. I did this slipsream the other day, but just now came across this post. I am running one drive, but trying to run AHCI mode and install XP Pro. Before slipstreaming, It would not detect the drive of course. I slipstreamed the drives exactly how you have in your guide, the only difference is the source cd was not a clean one, but a disc I slipstreamed SP2 in a few months ago. Does this matter that it was an nlite created disc even though the only thing changed was slipstreamed SP2 in? OK, so here is my problem. The slipstream must have worked, becuase it recognized the d
