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

    Just as a follow up, it appears that my slipstream problem is actually a bad motherboard. After googling the error it seems to be the equivalent of "Something in your hardware is borked". I've been getting random system lockups during post and earlier the board actually couldn't find the BIOS. It kept searching for a backup BIOS, after shutting it down for a few seconds it was fine on the next boot. I ran memtest and the memory was fine, seems like a bad mobo to me but I would hate to tear the system completely down if that's not really the problem.

    If your CD drive is OK, you should try to replace the nForce P-ATA Controller by the MS Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller.Look here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&sho...ndpost&p=453294 CU Fernando Thanks, I'll give that a shot. In the mean time I found a workaround by setting the ide controller transfer mode to "PIO only" instead of "DMA when applicable". I don't know enough to have any idea if that will slow data transfers but I'm assuming it will. Is there any drawback to leaving the transfer mode set to PIO only? The only device on that controller is the cd-rom. Thanks again for all your help so far and the guide. I wouldn't have even gotten this far without this thread. -Mike

    I am nearly sure, that this error (never have seen or heard about such message before) has something to do with nLite or especially with the integration of the nForce SataRaid drivers.My tip: If you google for "unknown hard error Systemroot\system32\ntdll.dll" you will find a lot of discussions about that error, for example here: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp/r1047757657 CU Fernando ok I'll look into that problem elsewhere. One other thing I was hoping you could help with. I gave up on the raid setup for the time being just to get the system up and running. After installing windows xp w/sp2, dual core driver/hotfix, and chipset drivers everything seems fine except when I try to run anything from the cd-rom. I can explore a cd and what not, but if I try to run a program off it I get "D:\Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application". I've tried multiple cd's all with the same result (with 1 exception). The one difference I've encountered was the motherboard cd gives this error "Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed". I don't think there's a hardware issue because I'm installing windows from a cd, there only seems to be a problem after windows has loaded. I can deal with the raid issue and just run the system without raid for a while, but not being able to run cd's limits my use pretty heavily. -Mike
  4. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Hello all. I looked through the thread and didn't see this particular problem so hopefully it's not redundant. I'm running an ASUS A8N32-SLI Delux witn a 4400+ X2, 2 SATA seagates in RAID0. I slipstreamed the raid drivers into xp using the nlite method with v1.0rc5 and everything seemed to go fine until I tried to install windows. During install I get a BSOD "unknown hard error Systemroot\system32\ntdll.dll" just after setup is finished loading files. I'm at a loss and have no idea what to do at this point. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong would be great, thanks!
