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

    I say it's not working as I'd like it to because the nForce 430 drivers aren't working. I've spent the last two days working over this and I don't think I can resolve the problem here. I will probably end up installing Vista Business and hope for compatability between the clinical software that I need to use on this machine. Thank you very much for your time, keep up the good work
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Both hard drives have been detected by setup. Since I've tried to install WinXP on both drives, they both say that I have a previous version of windows already on the drive, and then asks if I want to format the drive or not. The rebooting process usually takes place by itself... although it prompts you to hit enter or wait the 15 seconds out. The computer was bought as a display model, and thus have no included documentation, manuals or disks... I made the blunder of deleting the recovery partition and am currently making a Vista reinstall disk. I have a licensed XP Pro installation, but that is not working as I would like it to.
  3. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    I really appreciate your prompt reply. The endless reboot occurs at the first reboot, with the wait 15 seconds before reboot screen. Upon rebooting, it returns to the very beginning of setup. After loading the drivers from the SATARAID folder within the MCP61 subdirectory, I burned an XP Pro SP2 disk. I get the same problem - the computer runs through the initial copying of files for setup. Then it says it will reboot after 15 seconds, etc. etc... After rebooting it goes right back to the start of setup (asking for F6, repair, etc...). In short, it didn't work. I've read elsewhere that I need to enable RAID in my BIOS, but I can't seem to find it. I can look at both of the harddrives, but I think they're controlled by IDE. The only mention of SATA I can find is in the advanced tab is enabling the PATA/SATA drivers. Should these all be enabled here? Thanks Jeff
  4. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Hi, I have a rather poor understanding of how this whole setup works and have thus run into a bit of a problem while following your process. The system I'm trying to install Windows XP onto is an HP a6347c: AMD 64x2 5600+, 4gb RAM, 640gb HD (2x320gb) SATA, NVIDIA nForce 430 chipset and NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE. Using nLite, I've loaded three separate XP SP2 CDs with nForce drivers v.11.09, putting in sata_ide as PNP and sataraid as textmode. After formatting drives, installing, etc... I still go into infinite rebots. Are there anymore files that I need to edit in order for this system to get working? Thank you so much for your help so far - I really appreciate the detailed guide, but for some reason I cannot get this computer to get working. Jeff Edit - here is some more information. If I remove the boot disk and force it to boot from C: (I've formatted and tried to install on both hard drives), I a few screen flickers and an instant reboot. If I force boot from D:, I get a blinking '_' in the top corner of my screen.
