Nvidia Nforce3 Ultra Raid Problems


Recommended Posts

I have a new gigabyte Mobo with NVRaid capabilities, I read the sticky post about raid drivers during the text portion of the windows xp install and I got my P4 Mobo with Intel Raid working just fine with no need for the floppy, But I cannot get it to work for my Nvidia Board. I have the ATA/SATA Driver and the Raid Driver in the proper place, did everything the way i did it for the intel driver and it loads it during the first portion but before it gets to the partitioning portion i get a screen saying that no hard drives could be found. If I use just a normal windows xp sp1 install cd and press F6 and use the drivers from the floppy I get it to work with no problems. I have to load both the ATA driver and the Raid driver in order for it to work. here is my txtsetup.sif code addition:

iastor.sys   = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4
nvatabus.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4
nvraid.sys   = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24DF&CC_0104 = "iastor"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_008E = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0085 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00D5 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00EE = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E3 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E5 = "nvatabus"
*_NVRAIDBUS = "nvraid"

iastor   = iastor.sys,4
nvatabus = nvatabus.sys,4
nvraid   = nvraid.sys,4

iastor   = "Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Controller"
nvatabus = "NVIDIA NForce ATA/SATA Controllers"
nvraid   = "NVIDIA NForce ATA RAID Controller"

The driver path is done correctly in the winnt.sif file and I have done the makecab command for the .sys files and placed the .sy_ files in the i386 folder. If anyone has any info that could help me with this i would really appreciate it.
