  1. Since the MEGA download links to my modded 32/64bit AMD SBxxx AHCI&RAID drivers v3.3.1540.33 for Windows XP (x86/x64), which I had posted >here<, were dead, I have re-uploaded them both to my OneDrive account and corrected the links. Here are the links again: >32bit AMD SBxxx AHCI & RAID Driver v3.3.1540.33 for XP mod by Fernando< >64bit AMD SBxxx AHCI & RAID Driver v3.3.1540.33 for XP x64 mod by Fernando< Good luck!
  2. As long as the users have a legit XP CD-Key, they can use any original XP CD or downloaded original XP ISO file. Your link is ok, but leads just to the Windows XP SP3 image and not to the required complete XP ISO file with slipstreamed SP3.
  3. To answer this question I need the HardwareIDs of the AMD SATA Controller. You can find the related MEGA link within the start post of >this< thread. Only users, who are owner of a legit original XP CD with a Microsoft hologram are supported by me.
  4. The switch of the SATA mode from within a running OS is always risky and may end with an unbootable OS. That is why I do not really recommend to do it. If you want to do it nevertheless and are sure regarding the DeviceID of your on-board Intel SATA Controller after the switch to "AHCI", you can try the following: Do a backup of your most important data (for the emergency case of a SATA mode switch failure). Boot into XP in IDE mode, run the Device Manager, expand the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section and find out the Intel SATA Controller, where your system drive is connected. Right click onto the related Controller and choose the options "Update Driver Software ..." > "Browse my computer ..." > Let me pick ...". Hit the "Have Disk" button, navigate to the folder with the modded 32bit Intel RST driver v11.2.0.1006, hit the file named iaAHCI.inf and choose the Intel SATA AHCI Controller, which will match your system after the later switch to AHCI mode. Ignore all warnings you will get and let the driver be installed. Enter the BIOS immediately while rebooting and set the Intel SATA Controller to "AHCI". Reboot and be lucky, if everything should work fine.

  6. @ samson1701: Provided, that you have a legal MS licence and a genuine CD key for Windows XP, here are some additional informations: If you want to get Windows XP installed onto your Intel 8-Series Chipset system running in AHCI mode, you will run into the following Intel AHCI driver problem: None of the recently released Intel AHCI drivers are usable for a Windows XP installation (Reason: The absolutely needed file named TXTSETUP.OEM is missing).The much older Intel AHCI drivers (latest: Intel RST v11.2.0.1006) do contain the needed TXTSETUP.OEM file, but natively do not support your Intel® 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller (Reason: The HardwareIDs of the newest Intel SATA AHCI Controllers are missing within the related INF file).Consequence for you: The only chance to get Windows XP installed onto your Intel® 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller is to load (F6) or integrate a modded Intel RST driver, where the missing HardwareIDs have been added. You can find such driver within the start post of >this< thread.
  7. The screenshot shows all Intel SATA Controllers, which are supported by the integrated textmode driver. but the Windows 2000/XP Setup at the beginning of the OS installation (before the first reboot) is not able to find out the suitable one for your system (see my last post). That is why it is not a good idea to highlight all listed Controllers. You can minimize the risk of getting a BSOD while doing the OS installation, when you just highlight the Controllers with the word "AHCI" within their name.
  8. It seems possible, but I am not sure. Your problem will be anyway, that you obviously do not know the exact name resp. DeviceID of the on-board Intel AHCI Controller. So you may have to guess it while integrating the AHCI driver into the Windows 2000 image or while loading the textmode driver via F6.
  9. That is the decision of a Moderator or Admin. The difference between this thread and the 2 sticky threads is, that I haven't started this thread and put some instructions and download links into the Opener.
  10. If you find out the HardwareIDs of the on-board Intel SATA AHCI Controller, I would try to help you. This is the way you get them: Install Windows 7, open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section, right click onto the listed AHCI Controller and choose "Oroperties" > "Details" > "Property" > "HardwareIDs".
  11. You are right. The domain win-lite.de, where many of my files were hosted, is down resp. not available anymore. Here are the new and hopefully working download links: >32bit AMD SBxxx Textmode Driver v3.3.1540.33 for XP mod by Fernando< >64bit AMD SBxxx Textmode Driver v3.3.1540.33 for XPx64 mod by Fernando< Good luck!
  12. @ jumpcan: Please open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section of the Windows XP Device Manager and post the name(s) - and if possible the HardwareIDs - of the listed Controllers(s). It depends on the chipset of your mainboard. If it should be an Intel chipset, the XP hardware detection will find the appropriate INF files automaticly within the extracted Intel Chipset Device Software folder named "All".
  13. No, I meant, that you shouldn't integrate D:\Gigabyte*_07_Mar_2014\hseries-xp\x86, because there are obviously a lot of different textmode drivers. Instead of a driver mixture you should integrate just 1 driver (the correct one). Otherwise you risk either a BSOD or that the correct driver will be overwritten by other drivers during the integration procedure. Remember: All integrated textmode drivers will be copied by nLite into the i386 directory of the XP image. Drivers with the same name will be simply overwritten.
  14. @ misterx7777: It is fine, that you succeeded with the XP installation in AHCI mode.
  15. The XP installation will fail, if you really do that. As I already have written, you should integrate just the appropriate textmode driver (accompanied by the related INF, CAT and OEM files) and not a subfolder with a lot of different drivers.
  16. @ misterx7777: Thanks for posting the HardwareIDs. Conclusion: You can integrate any of the 32bit Intel RST drivers, but I recommend to take the 32bit Intel RST driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL (you can take the modded version as well). When nLite is going to integrate it as textmode driver, you should only check the listed "Intel® Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller". If you take an original (untouched) XP CD as source, I have no doubt, that you will succeed with the XP installation in AHCI mode.
  17. Then you should boot into Win7 or Win8 (in AHCI mode) and post the HardwareIDs of the SATA AHCI Controller, where your system drive is connected.
  18. Here is my statement:It was a mistake to integrate the AMD AHCI driver named amd_sata.sys. This driver is only usable with Vista, Win7 and Win8, but not with Windows XP. The correct 32bit AMD AHCI driver for Windows XP is named ahcix86.sys.The message "The file ahcix64.sys is corrupted" indicates, that you have tried to integrate a 64bit driver into a 32bit OS. That was a mistake as well.If you are searching for a suitable AMD AHCI driver, you may look into the start post of >this< thread. Note: You will find the AHCI driver listed as RAID driver, because the AHCI supporting AMD Controller is named "AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller".Windows XP Setup is very sensitive regarding wrong textmode drivers or wrong AHCI/RAID Controllers, which have been checked when doing the loading or integration of the textmode driver. So it is a good idea to integrate only 1 single AHCI or RAID driver (the suitable one for the SATA Controller, where the system drive is connected) and - if you get a list of different SATA AHCI/RAID Controllers during the textmode driver integration - to check just the correct one and not all of them.
  19. @ misterx7777: Welcome at MSFN Forum! According to the HardwareIDs and Intel SATA Controller names you have posted, you are running your system drive in IDE and not in AHCI or RAID mode. As long as you do not switch the Intel SATA Controller within the BIOS to AHCI or RAID mode, you will be able to install Windows XP without loading or having integrated any Intel textmode driver. Regards Fernando
  20. @ sabesto: If you should be able to boot into Vista or any other Windows OS, please check the HardwareIDs of the in use SATA Controller: Open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section of the Device Manager, do a right click onto the listed SATA Controllers and choose the options "Properties" > "Details" > "Property" > "HardwareIDs".
  21. @ Slessard: Welcome at MSFN Forum! You can find working links to the modded 32/64bit drivers within post #234 of this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/135840-integration-of-amd-ati-sb7xx-textmode-raid-ahci-drivers-on-an-xp/?p=1012118 You will have to update the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller, which is managing your system drive (the drive, which contains Windows XP). You have to find it out yourself. I don't know, what the "IDE>AHCI" BIOS setting means. Please ask the manufacturer of your mainboard. You should ask Cdob. By the way: This is the nLite Forum and the topic of this thread is the "Integration of AMD/ATI SB7xx textmode drivers into a Windows XP CD". Regards Fernando
  22. slessard: Welcome at MSFN Forum! First of all I want to point out, that your request is absolutely off-topic. The switch from IDE to AHCI mode while running Windows XP has nothing to do with the topic of this thread and nothing to do with "nLite", which is the name of this MSFN Sub-Forum. By the way: There is another option to get XP running in AHCI mode without the need of a clean install of the OS and without the need of a registry hack. These are the steps: 1. Download and unzip a suitable AMD AHCI driver for Windows XP (e.g. the modded one, which I have linked within ths thread). 2. Boot into XP in IDE mode. 3. Open the "IDE "ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section of the Device Manager. 4. Do a right click onto the "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller", which s managing your system drive, and choose the following options: "Update Driver Software..." > "Browse my Computer ..." > "Let me pick ..." > "Have Disk ...". 5. Navigate to the file named ahcix86.inf, which is within the unzipped AMD AHCI driver folder, and force the replacement of the "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller" by the "AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller". 6. Reboot and enter the BIOS while rebooting. 7. Set the AMD SATA Controller to "AHCI" mode. 8. Reboot into Windows XP. 10. Enjoy Windows XP in AHCI mode and a dual boot system without the need of switching the SATA mode while booting. Good luck! Fernando
  23. Yes, that is correct and everything seems to be fine now. I don't have any idea why the nLite integration failed. Maybe you have checked too many or the wrong Intel SATA Controller during the textmode driver integration. Have fun with your Windows XP running in AHCI mode! Fernando
  24. DEV_8C08 and DEV_8C00 are no valid DeviceIDs of any Intel SATA Controller running in AHCI mode. Please open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section of the Device Manager and post the names of the listed SATA Controllers.
