  1. Thanks for your help. Next question - why is NCQ disabled?? I have an NCQ HDD, AHCI and WinXP SP2 with IAA 4.7 installed. Cheers Andy
  2. Think I have solved it with this [sCSI] iaStor = "Intel® 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop ICH6R)" [sourceDisksFiles] iastor.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0106 = "iaStor" [sCSI.load] iaStor = iastor.sys,4 Cheers Andy
  3. Isn't winnt.sif the whole automated bit?? ANdy
  4. Hi, Have just tried and it gets to the end of the textmode driver install and it says it can find no hard disk drives. Aarrgghh!! Help, Thanks, Andy NB - However if I press F6, it says <none> for mass storage devices detected, but if I select it from the list it says windows already has a driver and I should use that!!!
  5. Do I need any specific changes for AHCI and not RAID?? THanks ANdy
  6. Have been trying that. Have tried http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=39032 with no success; and read http://greenmachine.msfnhosting.com/READING/addraid.htm with no further help. It gets as far as loading the drivers (in textmode) and says cannot find iastor.sys and ends the installation. Help! THanks Andy
  7. Hi I have an unattended SP2 install CD that has worked many times until I tried it on my new PC (Asus P5GDC deluxe based) It is set up so I can press F6 to install SATA drivers (I have NOT slipstreamed them) but when I press F6 for AHCI SATA (non-RAID) drivers it recognises the floppy and reads the driver, allowing me to see the installed partitions but when I select one (C:) to install I get the error iastor.sys cannot be copied (the floppy is in the drive and readable). It DOES work when using a non-unattended XP CD. Where should I look to sort this error out? What further info can I provide? Thanks, Regards, Andy
