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

    I don't believe, that you integrated the Raid drivers (off the LEGACY folder) as PnP drivers. You can integrate Sata drivers by this method, but not Raid drivers. Otherwise your Raid array will not be recognized during TEXTMODE part of the install. For mainboards with an nForce 430/410 chipset there is a special nForce chipset driver package 8.22. The only problem is, that this package has no NVATABUS.INF (no LEGACY folder). If you want to install this driver package, give me your eMail adress and I will send you the correct IDE driver package ready for integration as TEXTMODE driver. hehe you must have forgot. mine wasn't for a raid, just for a single sata
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Hi DarqAngels,thank you for your post, unless it is not easy to understand, because a ) INF files are no drivers (you can point at any INF file and you will get all files of that INF file folder onto your nLited CD) and b ) the SMBus has nothing to do with Sata drivers. So I try to resume for owners of an Asus A8N32 SLI Deluxe, who want to integrate the nForce Sata drivers for a non-Raid-system into a bootable XP CD: For the successful integration you have to integrate the LEGACY and SATA_IDE subfolder of the 6.85 package as PnP drivers - that's all. Is this correct? Or did you mean, that the LEGACY folder has to be integrated as TEXTMODE and the SATA_IDE as Pnp driver? Or did you mix both folders before you began the integration? Please clarify this if possible. CU Fernando oh hehe sorry about that. all i did was download 6.85 extract it, and then point nlite to those .inf files, so i didn't mix anything i just left everything as it was. They were integrated as PnP drivers. i added the SMBus because i figured a8n32 users needed it anyways for the Hypertransport. hope that clears stuff up
  3. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    ok so i used these drivers, remember this is a NON-Raid setup with an SATA hard drive. A8N32 Sli Deluxe nForce4_x16_6.85_winxp2k_english SMBus --- nf4sys.inf legacy --- nvatabus.inf sata_ide-- nvata.inf I'll start a new thread, post this and requesting other to post info on their MB's hopefully an admin can organize the whole thing.
  4. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    thanks alot for the reply, i'll make a cd in a little bit and give it a shot, funny thing, i believe my bios does fully support it, i have the newest one 1009 and i can install with my old windows xp sp1 without any problems at all on this system. So i guess i can just toss sp2 on that cd and nlite some stuff out and i should be fine. For some reason i do remember reading that i have to intergrate drivers if i do use nlite for unattended or soemthing like that. either way i'll make one without the drivers and one with the drivers just in case and give them both a try. If i get this all worked out i'll make to sure to post which drivers i use here, and maybe we can work on some kind of new sticky thread that has a list of mobo models and the drivers they must have, at least we will know about the a8n32 sli deluxe ; )
  5. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    since i was directed to this thread, which is about NVRaid, i'll ask anyways... what driver are you supposed to use for Non-Raid, i've tried a few and i just get that retarded BSOD about the bios not being fully ACPI compatable.
  6. Problem installing build 5219

    I got the same problem, i have a post up as well, i'm guessing its a driver issue, maybe something with the ide controller. Perhaps its just that i left my power to auto and maybe i should select multiproc acpi, whats your set to? Same error, diffrent OS. and not a laptop hehe
