  1. Problem Integrating SATA drivers

    I've tried re-installing XP again with BIOS set to AHCI and second SATA drive disconnected. Install proceeds recognizing hard drive and copies file from nLite CD to HDD, however after the reboot installation halts with STOP 0x000007B I have even took an old floppy drive and made a copy of the SATA drivers on floppy disk, tried with original XP Pro disk to Install XPand same thing happens, after first reboot I have STOP 7B message. Previously I did have XP Pro 64bit working with SATA drivers but some of my programmes dont work with 64bit which is why I am using 32bit. To recap motherboard is Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 with 6 SATA ports, 2 JMmicro ports (not using and disabled in BIOS) I have been through nLite several times and have a strong feeling I have integrated more than one driver. Browsing through my Nlite folder I see a folder called C:\Nlite\I386\NLDRV The NLDRV contains subfolders 001, 002, 003, 004 The contents of 001, 002 and 004 contain IAAHCI.CA_ IAAHCI.IN_ IASTOR.CA_ IASTOR.IN_ IASTOR.SY_ At a guess, when extracted these will become IAAHCI.INF, IAAHCI,CAT etc I am willing to delete my Nlite folder and start again froms scratch unless there is a way I can remove the drivers I already integrated. Thanks for all your help Fernando
  2. Problem Integrating SATA drivers

    I wanted my post as a reply to your thread but made a mess and cannot find a way to move my post now, if you can move my thread, please do so. I have integrated text drivers from a subfolder which contains txtsetup.oem Not sure if that I downloaded the file in step 1A http://win-lite.de/benutzer/fernando/Intel/Rapid%20Storage%20Technology/32bit%20Intel%20RST%20AHCI%20&%20RAID%20driver%20v11.2.0.1006%20WHQL.7z extracted it in c:\ root and integrated by clicking on iaAHCI.inf in the extracted 32bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL folder Not sure if I need to enable more than 1 driver as in Step 2 of Fernandos guide. Thanks for help so far.
  3. Problem Integrating SATA drivers

    Thanks both of you for replies. I can confirm that there has been no problem with the product key (even though nLite disc was mastered on windows 7). I even have a successfull install of Windows XP using the disc, however BIOS was set to IDE mode for SATA drive. @Ponch If BIOS is set to AHCI then XP installation starts and files are copied onto the HDD. When XP reboots this is when I get the STOP 7B message. My SATA controller is Intel Series5/3400 I'm pretty sure I am using wrong driver or some other mistake. Thanks for help so far.
  4. Problem Integrating SATA drivers

    I am having problems integrating SATA drivers for my Gigabyte Motherboard GA-P55A-UD3 Motherboard has both JM Micro SATA ports (not used) and 6 SATA 2 ports designated SATA2_0 to SATA2_5, which are supported by the P55 chipset In BIOS, Integrated Peripherals screen, I have option to set PCH SATA control mode as IDE, RAID(XHD) or AHCI If I choose AHCI then Windows XP will fail to load with STOP 7B message I currently have dual boot Windows 7 / Windows XP and have used Nlite from windows 7 to slipstream my XP Pro (32bit) CD and have integrated SP3 and tried various SATA drivers but still get the STOP 7B message when installing from the Nlite CD Device manager hardware ID's are below (from Windows XP): Under IDE ATA/ATAPI controller: Name: Intel ® 5 series/3400 Series Chipset Family 2 port serial ATA Storage controller - 3B26 Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B26&SUBSYS_B0021458&REV_06 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B26&SUBSYS_B0021458 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B26&CC_010185 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B26&CC_0101 Name: Intel ® 5 series/3400 Series Chipset Family 4 port serial ATA Storage controller - 3B20 Hardware ID's PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B20&SUBSYS_B0021458&REV_06 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B20&SUBSYS_B0021458 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B20&CC_01018F PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B20&CC_0101 I have tried integrating iaAHCI.inf from the 32bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL but if setting the SATA controller in BIOs to ACHI my Nlited XP install disk starts to load windows XP but after first reboot fails with the STOP 7B message. Drives are connected as follows: 1 500G SATA II drive connected to SATA2_0 (This is my Windows XP and Win7 install) 1 LG DVD/CD connected to SATA2_1 1 500G SATA II drive connected to SATA2_2 (all partitions linux and freeBSD) There is no linux boot loader to worry about at the moment, boot loader is Windows 7 BCD controlling boot of both Windows 7 and XP Thanks in advance if anyone can help.
