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

    First up: thanks Fernando1 for your hard work and dedication on this for 86 pages!! Rather than trawl through that lot, I'll post my question here at the end! I'm trying to put together a sysprep image that supports the diverse hardware in my organization. I've successfully integrated drivers from Intel, JMicron and Silicon Image but I'm having trouble with the nForce kit. We have a small number of systems based on nForce 1, 2, 3, 4 and 410/430, so I am using "Fernandos XP 32bit nForce LEGACY Remix Pack v5.5a" as it seems to support them all. Unfortunately, my 410/430 based system (an Asus A8N-VM CSM motherboard with SATA RAID 5) crashes with a BSOD 0x07B error on first boot. I have three folders in my image's C:\Drivers\Storage folder: nVidia1 (which contains the contents of the "sataraid" folder from the driver pack) nVidia2 (files from the "sata_ide" folder) nVidia3 (files from the "legacy" folder) (The reason the folders are numbered like this is to get the sysprep process to try them in order (newest to oldest) and use the first driver it finds that works) My sysprep.inf [sysprepMassStorage] section contains the following lines: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0266&CC_0104=C:\Drivers\Storage\nVidia1\nvraid.inf PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0267&CC_0104=C:\Drivers\Storage\nVidia1\nvraid.inf PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0266&CC_0101=C:\Drivers\Storage\nVidia2\nvata.inf PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0267&CC_0101=C:\Drivers\Storage\nVidia2\nvata.inf PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0265&CC_0101=C:\Drivers\Storage\nVidia3\nvatabus.inf (There are other lines to support other mass storage controllers, I've just included the relevant ones for the 410/430) First of all, am I using the correct drivers for what I want to accomplish? Second, am I doing this the right way? Thanks in advance for any help/guidance/ideas you can give me!!
