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

    Heya Fernando, I see your still hard at work as usual Quick question, I had finally got my install working using the 'fail safe' method a month ago. Everything has been fine until I went to install the latest nForce (15.23)....I'm guessing that was a big no no? BSoD, fixed with Last working config. Question: Is it possible to update the nForce drivers after OS install? Curious really, as I don't think I'll bother trying to update. There probably isn't a huge benefit anyways... Thanks again. And to all those people out there who keep failing with BSoD when using nLite....You MUST start fresh everytime! i.e. Delete the working folder, copy fresh OS files into it and complete your integration.....it took me a week before I realised I had been integrating drivers into the same working folder. I'd forgotten that it changes the source files/directories THEN creates the image from the files. It does NOT create a temporary image without first altering your source files. So be sure to delete that source folder on every attempt!...and thank Fernando for all his hard work!

    OOOOHHHHHHH CRAPPPPP!!!!!!! Answer me one thing: Everytime I use nLite and specify my source files folder.....does nLite apply those changes to those files? Your going to say yes aren't you because I just realised it does it's 'creation' first and then prompts to create an image or burn it to a cd......FUUUUU****!!*!*!*KKKKK!! I am such a twat. This entire time, I think I've been applying all the nLite changes to the same source folder. I've done 6 cd's which all failed....all using the same source files...****.....maybe something to add to your guide? I'll confirm my monumental cock up once I successfully see a desktop. EDIT: yes. I'm an id***. install worked fine. now i know at least. thanks for all your help fernando!

    lol, well I had used the OEM SP2 disc to slipstream SP3 into it and those were the only changes I had made. I (stupidly) assumed it wouldnt have made a big enough change to affect it. And in that respect, I would have assumed that the change would have been (almost) the same as an OEM SP2 disc compared to a 'gold' disc. The 'pure' disc has just finished burning now. will let you know.

    Fail. Same thing, but this time I got a different BSoD. I have seen it once before though when I tried the 'if all else fails' method. BAD_POOL_HEADER STOP 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0xE113FFFC, 0xE1140BBC, 0x897841B0) I'll try now using just my XP Pro OEM SP2 disc, but I don't think I'm going to be able to get my hands on an original, untouched XP disc. Is there any other way to get the nVidia RAID controller working without slipstreaming? At the very least, just to test. The F6 method doesn't work right? I'm sure I've tried it before....I think....

    Again, thanks for your reply. I shall try that now. Just to clarify things, I'm going to list the steps I take: After extracting the drivers located at: http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/Downloa...6F-90E4288C5AF9 and http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/Downloa...55-84AEEC7AD91F 1. Run nLite, choose location of XP files (in this instance, its a XP Pro OEM SP2 disc, slipstreamed with SP3) - I'll try with a XP Pro OEM SP2 disc after this. 2. Choose only 'Integrate Drivers' and 'Create Bootable Disc' 3. Select 'Insert' > Single Driver and specify the .inf file in "FSC_NVIDIASATARAIDF6driverdisk32BitV699_699_1013554\NVIDIA_SATA_RAID_F6_DRIVERDISK_32BIT_V6.99_MCP51_MCP55" and select TEXTMODE and click 'Ok'. ----Two drivers are added to the list with modes: TXT - BUSDRV and TXT - RAIDCLASS 4. Select 'Insert' > Single Driver and specify the .inf file in "FSC_NVIDIASATADRIVER32BitV699_699_1013570\NVIDIA_SATA_DRIVER_32BIT_V6.99_MCP51_MCP55" - nLite automatically adds that driver PNP mode and HDC type. 5. Leave 'Delete after install' unticked and click next. 6. Click 'Yes' to start the process 7. Burn CD with Boot sector left as default I'll let you know how I go. Thanks again for your help.

    a) on both Memtest86 v3.3 and Memtest86+ v1.7 the RAM passed all tests continuously. B) I'm sure the SATA cables are fine as I used to use them, but I'll swap them over with some new ones now c) PSU should be fine, I've stress tested it recently with no problems Installation wise: a) Setup did detect the RAID and was able create a partion and do a full format. (Also there is no other HDD connected at this point) B) Install fails after it's final restart. i.e.: 1. Blue screen install where you select partition, format and copy over install files 2. GUI install with tasks on the lefthand side and where it would ask for network settings, CD key, timezone, etc (thats all automated though because i've entered all that info in the answer file using nLite) 3. After GUI section, the computer restarts, shows the Windows Logo on the black screen with the progress bar, then a low resolution, light blue background with a cursor, then blue screens c) I always get the following BSoD (last three variables may change, but the first is usually 0x7): BAD_POOL_CALLER 0x000000C2 (0x00000007, 0x00000CD4, 0x00000000, 0xE1600004) Hope this helps. I really appreciate your help.

    Hi Fernando, Firstly thank you very much for all your time spent on this problem, if it weren't for you there would be many, many stuck people out there. I've read through your entire guide and have tried all the relevant methods, including the 'last chance legacy' one. I'm on my 5th attempt CD so far but all are ending in BSoD 0xC2 or in the case of the last one 0x19. My system details: XP SP2 Pro (Slipstreamed to SP3) nLite 1.4.7 Asus A8N-SLI Premium (BIOS 1302) -http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=148&l4=0&model=539&modelmenu=1 -939 Socket -nForce4 SLI AMD -Silicon RAID controller disabled nVRAID BIOS 4.84 2 x 74GB WD Raptors in RAID0 (Healthy and bootable) Tried all drivers in your guide using the links provided. I'm completely lost now, I don't know what to try next. Any suggestions? Thanks heaps.
