  1. PROB | mass storage driver: VIA SATA

    Didn't have any RW's, and they were relatively cheap cd-r's so that ain't the biggest problem. It's just irritating that I can't get it to work :|
  2. PROB | mass storage driver: VIA SATA

    I made a clean installation cd, nothing added, nothing removed, just the VIA SATA driver according exactly to the txtsetup.inf. No luck. I made 25 coasters already, and I don't know where to go now. Is it at all possible to integrate VIA SATA drivers with a Windows x64 installation???
  3. PROB | mass storage driver: VIA SATA

    First of all thank you for replying. I followed the guide on Green Machine (same as the Official guide from MSFN, I think?). I made sure things looked exactly the same as what's on those pages.....but it fails :'( I still get the #18 error (unexpected error on line 1896 etc.). I put the driver files on cdrom in the following folder: "$OEM$\$1\Drivers\001\VIA" and let my winnt.sif refer to it as: [Unattended] OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\001\VIA" Entries to the SATA drivers in my txtsetup.sif (according to the example on Green Machine): [SourceDisksFiles] viamrx64.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_0591 = "viamrx64" PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3249 = "viamrx64" PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149 = "viamrx64" PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3164 = "viamrx64" [SCSI.Load] viamrx64 = viamrx64.sys,4 [SCSI] viamrx64 = "VIA VT8237/6421/6410 SATA RAID Controller(SRV2003/XP-x64)" To complete it, my txtsetup.oem file (is this one causing the problem??) [Disks] D-x64-NT5-RAID="VIA RAID Combo Driver Diskette",\AMD64\VIAMRX64 [Defaults] scsi = VCOMBORAID_x64_NT5 [SCSI] VCOMBORAID_x64_NT5="VIA VT8251/8237/8237A/6421/6410 SATA RAID Controller(SRV2003/XP-x64)" [Files.SCSI.VCOMBORAID_x64_NT5] driver = D-x64-NT5-RAID, viamrx64.sys, CFG_NT5 inf = D-x64-NT5-RAID, viamrx64.inf catalog = D-x64-NT5-RAID, viamrx64.cat [config.CFG_NT5] value = parameters\PnpInterface,5,REG_DWORD,1 [HardwareIds.scsi.VCOMBORAID_x64_NT5] id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3349","viamrx64" id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_0591","viamrx64" id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3249","viamrx64" id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149","viamrx64" id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3164","viamrx64" I have a compressed viamrx64.sy_ in my AMD64 folder (since it's a x64 installation). I'm lost at the moment, I just can't figure out where the error is coming from. But I'd really like it to work. I haven't got a floppydrive anymore, so hitting F6 won't get me anywhere. Any help would be appreciated...
  4. I've been searching the forums all day so far but I couldn't find the answer (or I overlooked :/) I've integrated the VIA Sata drivers(Asus A8V Deluxe mobo with VIA VT8237 controller) with nLite into a Windows Xp x64 installation. That didn't work. Setup couldn't find my SATA disk. So I searched and found another method (by trainee I believe). Setup finds the driver but then halts the copy, giving me an error #18, at line 1896 in file d:\srvrtm\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c. Been at it for about 3-4 hours now, so I decided to ask you guys. On the install I made a folder called $OEM$\TXTMODE, I put the driver files in there, uncompressed. I could quote the txtsetup and winnt files but since they're quite large I put them in a zip file along with the txtsetup.oem file. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could download it and correct it where necessary. Thank you in advance. TheimonsSATAProbs.zip
  5. Nero Custom Applications Builder (NCAB)

    It's very probable that the .exe file has some fingerprints the virus also has, making Kaspersky alert the user that it has found something although the file is absolutely harmless. I just thought I let you know. Safety first!
  6. Nero Custom Applications Builder (NCAB)

    I thought I'd let you know: I downloaded the NCAB.rar from Rapidshare. When I Extracted it, my Antivirus (Kaspersky) alerted me with the following message: D:\My Downloads\Nero\NCAB.exe Infected Constructor.Win32.Delf.g Maybe you can take a look at this.
  7. Whenever I need some piece of software or music, I tend to search different sites. These include e.g. ircspy.com, torrentspy.com, binsearch.info etc. Problem with this is that I have to fill in my query at every site. What I would like to see is that I'd have 1 interface like a HTML page or whatever that functions as some sort of searchengine. So I don't have to type it 8 times in a row on every site but just once, and that results for my query are returned in that same page. Is this possible? I've been looking for a while now, but I just can't find it. Can I build some sort of script for this? Hope anyone can help.
  8. who wants gmail?

    Someone here still has an invite he/she wants to dispose of?
  9. Sorry, I can't help you with that one
  10. Great! Thanks for your help guys
  11. So I finally got my Unattended Install going (I think), I bump into this minor but necessary little thing. When the runonceex.cmd is done installing all wanted programs, I want it to restart the computer. Otherwise some programs won't function (properly or at all). I've been searching the forum but I can't find an answer. What's the entry in runonceex to get it to reboot? TIA.
  12. Diskeeper Professional 9.0 switch ?

    i think the prob is that you miss a quote before the %CDROM% var It helped indeed When I looked closer I saw some more typos. Got me thinking.....if I just typed better I wouldn't have to be at this forum at all I guess
  13. Diskeeper Professional 9.0 switch ?

    I followed the instructions mentioned above, but I stumble upon the following problem. From my Runonceex REG ADD %KEY%\020 /VE /D "Diskeeper Professional 9" /f REG ADD %KEY%\020 /V 1 /D %CDROM%\Extra\Diskeeper\Diskeeper.msi /QB" /f This doesn't seem to work when you install your apps from cd Cuz when my unattended install finishes and I go round checking in VMware what did pull off and what not, Diskeeper isn't installed at all. Is this a known issue? Is installation only possible after you first copy the msi and then install from your HDD?
  14. I don't know actually I'm just playing around with this unattended installation, and I was going through my currently installed apps list. That's why I was wondering what switch it could be. But I don't think it's gonna work so I'll just skip this one.
  15. I tried it but I can't copy ALL files cause then you get a read error on the iconconfig.xml file. Even when you stop the StyleXP-service. I went through the install logs again but I just can't find what file I have to "work on". Aaaargh.....it's starting to get to me
