  1. I tested with Intel RST driver v11.2.0.1006 and it works (now that I know the correct SATA controller ) PERFORMANCE TEST: v11.2.0.1006 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After that I installed Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver v11.1.0.1006. The installer from HP includes this software application. I don't know if it improves performance or it's just an informational tool. I did every test two times and restarted the computer after every single try in order to make it as reliable as possible. HD Tune Pro test >> Restart >> HD Tune Pro test again >> Restart >> CrystalDiskMark test >> Restart >> CrystalDiskMark test again So either the older driver is better or this software application is a must! I was unable to find v11.2.0.1006 installer that includes this application.
  2. Thank you very much, Fernando! Do you think the latest version of the SATA drivers will improve the performance or I better stay with the version available for download on HP's website?

  3. I'm not sure. But I saw the "7 Series/C216" part somewhere while testing different things in WinXP / Win 7 using software like Aida64, Speccy, Task Manager, etc. Here are the Hardware IDs: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&SUBSYS_17F6103C&REV_04 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&SUBSYS_17F6103C PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&CC_010601 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&CC_0106 First time I tried to install WinXP in AHCI mode, I integrated only the "7 Series/C216" drivers (latest version from your first post). BSOD, no luck. The second time I tried to install WinXP in AHCI mode, I integrated the "7 Series", "7 Series/C216", etc. drivers (this older version from HP's website). And it worked fine. So maybe I have to integrate the "7 Series" drivers and not the "7 Series/C216"? Maybe that was the problem? And maybe the driver's version has nothing to do with it? Can you tell this from the Hardware IDs above? Either way I will try it with the latest drivers when I have time.
  4. Problem solved! Some older SATA drivers downloaded from HP's website work. Intel RST v11.1.0.1006 to be precise. The HDD works in AHCI mode now and everything is pretty fast. Fixing problems when the HDD is working slow is such a PITA. You have no idea Now it's time to enjoy my new notebook and further tweak my nLited WinXP
  5. Not yet. This is interesting. So my BSOD might not be related to incorrect SATA driver integration but something else. I have USB 2.0 stick, now I have to read how to make WinXP SP3 32bit boot from it. Great suggestion by the way, Kurt_Aust! And so weird at the same time
  6. Can someone please confirm that WinXP SP3 32bit can be installed on HP ProBook 4540s (B6N81EA). Chipset: Mobile Intel® HM76 Express HDD: TOSHIBA 320 GB 7200 rpm SATA II For more details check the link above. In IDE mode the HDD works in Pio Mode only (no Ultra DMA whatsoever) and it's ultra slow as you can imagine. In AHCI mode I'm getting BSOD during Windows Setup (in the very beginning). I used the 32bit Intel RST textmode driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL. I selected the correct controller Intel® 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller and I'm still getting BSOD. So in conclusion, I can't install Windows in AHCI mode. In IDE mode (from BIOS) the hard disk works in Pio Mode and it's ultra slow. Can someone help me, please! P.S.: here is the BSOD: Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers... 0x0000007B ( 0xB9CCF524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, )

  9. If you need an older version of any nLite addon, just use the build-in search form on WinAddons. It's on the homepage, top right corner.

  15. I don't think Avira AntiVir is compatible with the SVCPACK method which is used for the addons.
