  1. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Take another USB stick or change the USB port. It is ok, if you format the stick with FAT32. Hi, I tried another USB stick, and FAT32, but it's still extremely slow. Anyways, I got through the Copying files procedure, and now it's telling me I'm missing ntoskrnl.exe, and I'm guessing it's because I have multiple partitions on the Hard drive. You have any solutions for this problem? Thanks again Fernando!
  2. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Try it once more from scratch with the USB stick, but this time remove the stick during the first reboot. Hey, but the first process takes hours to finish.. When copying files, it's at 15% after about 1 hour.. I read somewhere that I should format the stick to FAT16, but this didn't work since my USB is 32GB, and the FAT limit is 4GB.. Even when I got it to FAT16, I just got the KBDUS.DLL error because of some read-only things, tried removing read-only on all the files on the USB, but still didnt work.. (Windows is not able to read the Keyboard layout file). So right now I'm just gonna try to wait for the install to be done. If you have any other methods that will speed the file copying up, it would be great! Thanks again Fernando!

    Why don't you burn a bootable XP CD using the already prepared ISO file with the integrated AHCI driver and boot off that media?The problem of an USB stick as boot media is the fact, that the XP Setup may try to write the boot sector onto it. Atm I don't have any DVD/CD-ROM.. So you have any other solutions to the slow installation?
  4. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    If you have integrated the same AHCI driver version as 32bit model, which had worked with XP x64, the BSOD has been caused by something else.What about your RAM sticks? Did you already check them with MemTest? If you have more than 1 RAM stick, have you tried to remove all other RAM sticks before you began with the OS installation? What about your PSU? Is it good and strong enough for your system? What about Overclocking? An OS installation should always been done with the default BIOS settings regarding the CPU clock/voltage and Memory timings/voltage. Hey, thanks for the reply once again Fernando. I figured out the constant bsod problem. It was actually my USB 3.0 that wouldn't go in XP (not surprised there..), so I changed the ports for my USB 3.0, and tried, this time it worked with no BSOD, BUT the installation was EXTREMELY slow.. As in 20% in about 1-2 hours.. I let it sit for the night, installing, but when I woke up, the installation screen was gone, and it was just stuck at my motherboard logo loading, rebooted it, to see if it would continue the installation process, but now it can't find the ntoskrnl.exe, and my other Windows XP 64 is not working either. I'm guessing that's because of the Windows 32-bit installation screwed with some boot settings. So, how do I go for getting the installation in normal speed? I tried slipstreaming the USB 3.0 drivers, but didn't help, still got the BSOD. I also tried changing SATA ports / cables, still didn't make the process any faster. The HD I'm trying to install Windows XP 32-bit on, is a Western Digital WD10EAVS Caviar Green Hard Drive - 1TB, 3.5", 8MB, SATA-300 HD, and it's split up in 3 volumes. 1 for Windows 7, 1 for Data and 1 for Windows XP. PS. I have been looking around the net for a solution, but they just refer to slipstreaming the SATA drivers, which I already did.. Oh and yes, the SATA mode is at AHCI Any help would be appreciated as always. And thanks again for all the support!
  5. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Alright, so I have managed to successfully install Windows XP 64 bit, onto my hard drive. Now I am having a issue with my Windows 7 OS (keyboard and mouse not working at logon screen), so I have been using the Windows XP for a while. Anyways, earlier today my external hard drive got the "click of death", so I took it out of its box, to make it an "internal" disk, to see if it helped with the constant clicking. But to do this, I had to install the Marvell SATA drivers, so I did. (for best speed rate) After rebooting, I got the Windows XP loading screen, but then it just turns black.. Nothing there, no mouse cursor, no nothing. I have been reading a lot around the web, but did not find a solution as of now... So, to my "main" problem, if you don't have any solutions for the XP and Win7 issues. I had some problems with 64-bit version of Windows XP, so I decided to just wipe the Windows XP 64-bit HDD, and install Windows XP 32-bit on it. BUT! Whenever I slipstream the drivers (32bit ofc), onto an OEM version of Windows XP 32 bit (SP3 integrated), I get the 07b BSOD again. And I am 100% sure that it is an UNTOUCHED Windows XP 32-bit SP3 OEM DVD, because its downloaded from Microsofts MSDN page. You have any idea why it's constantly giving me this BSOD, even with the drivers slipstreamed? I tried doing exactly as I did with the Windows XP 64-bit installation that worked, but no luck... Also tried switching the SATA ports a couple of times, but still doesn't work. Thank you for your time and patience, and hope that you can help me once again! EDIT: I got into my old Windows XP 64-bit OS, by removing the clicking hard drive, and booting into safe mode. So I'm only curious to why the 32-bit OEM installation is giving me BSOD; even though I have slipstreamed the 32-bit SATA drivers for Intel chipset.

    I don't have an XP drive, because I am running Win7 x64.Please give us some informations about your system (mainboard, hdds/SSDs). Processor: Intel Core i7 2600K Mainboard: ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 Memory: G.Skill 4 x 4 GB (16GB) GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 (Black Edition) HD #1 (The one which I want XP on): 160GB Seagate 2.5" SATA drive - ST916082 HD #2 (Currently running Win7 64): Western Digital 1TB - WD10EAVS-00D7B1 Hope this helps you finding my problem!
  7. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    The reason for the 07B BSOD is most likely a wrong textmode driver or a wrong SATA AHCI/RAID Controller selection, when you got the textmode driver popup window.Here are my advices: 1. Make sure, that your OS source is really a clean original=untouched XP x64 one (with an AMD64 directory and without a WINNT.SIF file!) and that you haven't imported any Last_Session.ini at the beginning of the nLite processing. 2. Check the SATA BIOS settings and the SATA port, where your system HDD/SSD drive is connected. The active partition (= the HDD/SSD with the Master Boot Record) has to be connected with an Intel SATA port, which has to be set to AHCI mode within the mainboard BIOS. Regards Fernando I tried this several times, with several sata ports, but no luck.. As we share the same motherboard, what port are you using for your XP drive, and which drivers did you use? -- My last try was the 6 gb/s sata ports.. Thanks again for the great help!!
  8. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Hey Fernando, I am still getting a BSOD when trying to install XP. Same BSOD as before, the 07B one... Any other suggestions? I have tried what you have said, even tried the Windows 7 USB tool, but no success.
  9. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Probably not. The USB stick has to be prepared for being bootable. I prefer the freeware tool HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. You can get it >here<. But the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool can't make the USB bootable though, or am I completely off right now? Edit: And what tool should I use to make the USB bootable, if I can't use the HP Format Tool. Besides WinToFlash of course..
  10. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    For point #5, should I make the ISO, extract, and use WinToFlash to make it work on a USB, or can I simply extract the ISO file into my USB stick, and it will be ready to go? Thanks a lot for all your help, I am currently building the nLite version with the driver you provided. Will reply with results in a bit.
  11. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    If you want help, you should give us some informations about 1. your system (vendor and name of the mainboard or pc), 2. the SATA driver version you have integrated and 3. the SATA Controller you have selected during the integration process. 1. MB: P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3, Intel Z68 motherboard 2. I tried the ones you provided in your post for "Intel ICH7R/M, ICH9M, ICH10R/D, 5 Series or 6-Series Southbridge AHCI or RAID system:", and the ones provided on Asus homepage, "Marvell SATA 6G Driver V1.2.0.1006 for Windows 32/64bit XP.(WHQL)", also I tried the "Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software V10.6.0.1002" from Asus' homepage as well. 3. I tred everyone, but also read somewhere to try only the Workstation AHCI controller, but that didn't work either.. Edit/PS: I always use a fresh copy of XP 64-bits, when trying different drivers etc..
  12. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    1. An original XP CD does neither contain the Marvell SATA3 AHCI driver named mv91xx.sys nor any INF or SIF file entries regarding this driver. You obviously have used an already processed XP CD as source or you have loaded a Last_session.ini of a previous processing procedure, when you started your work with nLite. It is very important, that you start with a clean (=untouched) Windows XP-CD as source and do not load any Last_session.ini. 2. If you should have integrated several different SATA drivers, you should start a new nLite session from scratch and integrate just the Intel AHCI driver (providing, that your system drive is connected to an Intel SATA port, which has been set to AHCI mode). 3. If your USB stick is not able to read the files, I recommend to change the USB stick or/and the ISO-to-USB transfer tool. Regards Fernando Alright, so I tried a completely untouched XP 64 CD, slipstreamed the intel drivers, got 07B BSOD, tried slipstreaming SP3 in to see if it fixed it, but no luck, still getting the BSOD :-(
  13. Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

    Hello Fernando! I have tried endless options to make this work now. I have tried slipstreaming the new IRST drivers into an 64 bit Windows XP CD, then after that using WinToFlash to boot it from a USB (since I am currently not available to use the CD-ROM) I get the error "mv91xx.sys is missing", then I tried adding the Marvell drivers to see if it could find the mv91xx.sys, but no luck.. Still get the same message about mv91xx.sys missing. I also tried changing my BIOS settings to Disable SATA / changing it to IDE etc.. No luck at all.... Any help would be appreciated. - eROM.
