  1. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    YES!! IT WORKED!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure what it was, the 6.67 drivers or the extra stick of ram. I just have to remember to do this same routine if I am ever to format again.
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    It is not as difficult as you mean and you don't need to understand the "OemInfFiles" thing, because it is already implemented into nLite.I suppose to do the following: Create a bootable XP CD by using nLite RC3. If you have trouble with this version, use RC1. Take the nForce driver package 6.70 or 6.66 and integrate the content of the LEGACY subfolder as textmode driver (see post No. 1). All the other things within nLite don't matter, but if you are anxious, do nothing else than integrating these nForce SataRaid drivers. At least create the ISO file and burn it. Then try the installation of XP from your nLited CD. If the installation fails, unplug both Hitachi drives and try again the installation. If you still have problems (BSOD), you should try to enhance the RAM voltage a little bit (0,1 V) and try it again. Good luck! Fernando EDIT: The tip from rnielsen151 was a good idea. Try it with one of your nLited CD's, before you begin the new nLite processing. 6.66 didn't have a legacy subfolder, but 6.67 did so I am trying those. I have the cd burned and will let you know how it goes.

    Ill give it a shot. Thank you.
  4. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    I will try to help you, unless it's not easy, because I believe, that some of your problems have more to do with your system (especially with your RAM-settings or with your 4 hard disk devices) than with nLite.Before I can give you any advices, I need to know the following: 1. Do you have an overclocked system? If yes, is the memtest OK? 2. Is your Raid array connected to the nForce Raid Controller or to the Silicon Image Raid Controller? 3. Which of your hard disk devices are connected to the nForce Raid controller? 4. Which hard disk device (single drive or Raid array) is your boot device? 5. On which hard disk device is your partition C (boot partition)? 6. Is your Raid array "healthy"? 1. No it is not overclocked 2. All drives are connected to the nForce controller. From there I made 2 arrays, a raid 0 bootable (for OS using raptors) and a raid 1 (for files & storage) 3. All devices are connected to nForce controller 4. My raptors are the boot device and are connected to slots 1 & 2. My hitachi drives are connected to 3 & 4. 5. The C: is the raid 0 raptor array 6. Yes, when both arrays are created they appear as "healthy"
  5. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    I have tried this solution to no avail, but I am afraid that I may be doing something incorrectly. Here are my system specs: 4.84 Bios, ACPI Enabled, Windows XP w/SP2 AMD Athlon x2 4200 DFI Lanparty Ultra NF4 SLI-DR 2 x Western Digital Raptor 74gb 2 x Hitachi Deskstar 250gb SATA 3gb/sec 2gb G.Skill DDR500 Ram PC Power & Cooling 510watt PS I downloaded nLite RC3 and tried to make several bootable iso's, but the program would freeze at the last stage and never create the iso. I instead downloaded RC1 and made 5 cds - using drivers from nforce 8.12, 6.66, 6.83, 7.13. With each CD I got a new error. 8.12 drivers - I would get a bluescreen and reboot during the windows installation 6.66 drivers - During 2nd half of Windows installation, when it says "Installing Hardware" a window would appear saying that it had found a mass storage controller and the installation would freeze 6.83 drivers - Installation would complete. After install before windows screen would get the BSOD 7.13 drivers - Don't remember what happened with these, but they didn't work I have spent a good 10-15 hours trying to figure this out and I'm going insane. I only have 1 PC, so to check this thread I have to disable the raid array, install Windows on a single raptor drive, burn new isos, then reinitiate the raid array, only to find that the isos don't work. The first post is great, but it is lacking very specific detail. Can you please list EXACTLY what steps I need to take, what chipset drivers to use, what unattended install settings I need to enable, etc. There was one post that went through step by step that was very helpful. Unfortunately I followed it, and had incorrectly edited the winnt.sif file and it did not work. I don't really understand the whole oemfile thing either. Could someone explain that in further detail? Thanks so much guys for your continued effort and perserverance through this nvidia driver nightmare.
