Win2k-UU Recovery Console when booting from ASmedia SATA Controller

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make the Recovery Console work when Win2k-UU boots from ASmedia ASM106x SATA Controller?

I slipstreamed the Asmedia textmode driver, burned CD and used it to create \cmdcons, but console doesn’t load, “asahxp32.sys is corrupted”.
 

 

BTW, Win2k-UU OS boots fine from ASmedia SATA Controller.

What is Win2k-UU? :unsure:

With UURollup? Then say it.

 

You integrated (not slipstreamed I believe) the SATA textmode driver HOW?

To WHAT?

HOW you created the \cmdcons?

Yes UURollup. I used nLite to slipstream the Asmedia textmode driver, burned CD , then ran E:\\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons to re-create \cmdcons

 

I actually don't know how to integrate drivers to an existing installation. Is it even possible? 

 

The OS with updated kernel can use  asahxp32.sys but it seems cmdcons doesn't use that kernel, so it says, “asahxp32.sys is corrupted”.

Yep, so the point is that when you run winnt32.exe /cmdcons the specific driver is not added correctly to the recovery console?

 

The kernel has nothing to do with it, I believe, the asahxp32.sys is a driver, maybe there is something "wrong" with another driver file or however some dependency of it.

 

Can you provide a link to the actual driver?

 

Can you try running the console using a F6 floppy with the driver? (if you dont' have a floppy drive you can use a virtual floppy from grub4dos, this way we can see if the error remains the same)

 

There are ways to inject drivers offline, but it has to be seen if they work on a \cmdcons and on Win 2K. :unsure:

winnt32.exe /cmdcons adds asahxp32.sys correctly, BUT asahxp32.sys needs the UU kernel to work. So I added the updated NTKRNLMP.EXE to cmdcons, makecab, done. But no boot.

 

XP cmdcons works with w2k,  I'd copy cmdcons from my XP but it doesn't have asahxp32.sys

Well, the 2K and XP command consoles are very similar, most probably you can create the one in the same way of the other.

 

But we cannot yet say if that driver (for whatever reason) has issues with the actual command console environment. :unsure:

 

 

As said, I would try with an F6 floppy.

You can create fine a XP command console from a set of downloaded floppies fine.

 

See:

http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=24880

(only you don't need/want for the moment to put it in a hard disk image and/or use the bootsector trick)

 

Then try it with a virtual floppy in grub4dos containing the driver and it's TXTSETUP.OEM.

 

If you post a link to the actual driver you are using, I may be able however to assist you with adding the driver to the XP command console TXTSETUP.SIF (and hopefully the same approach will work for the 2K one).

It is even possible that you can use the TXTSETUP.SIF from a nlite build, but really cannot say.

Thank you. The driver is ASmedia ASM 106x SATA Controller 1.3.8.0, standard driver, works fine in UU and OS will boot off ASmedia controller. But cmdcons is a little OS on it's own.

 

I see what you mean, floppy image on a flash drive.  This requires more patience than I possess. If one could slipstream UURollup and the ASm driver, that CD will probably produce a booting cmdcons.
