SATA/RAID driver integration testers ?

Recommended Posts

I finished textmode driver integration support and i would like to test it first, while updating other portions of the application.

So if there is anyone reading this with the folowing criteria, feel free to contact me via PM:

- sata, raid or scsi hdd

- cd or dvd RW !

- nerves of steel and doesn't mind possible bugs which i'll fix as soon as reported

- won't lie only to get newest nlite (btw every other function is disabled expect driver integration)

Testing would be needed to be done on a real pc and the point is that you DON'T need to reinstall windows (even not recommended), just boot from cd and if you can choose partitions on your hdd then it's working.

Use rewritable media !.

I tested this on my 3114 controller last night and it works fine. I look forward to this being realeased uncrippled so I can make another image. There was some other goodies I seen while testing that I think everyone will enjoy with the new release...

Hardware: ASUS A7N8X Deluxe + Maxtor SATA 120GB

Controller: SiI 3112 (Si3112r.sys)

Slipstream: Successful!

Installation from CD: Successful!

Installation from HD: Unsuccessful :angry:

Description of the problem: Si3112r.sys it's not found on text-mode setup.

Posible solution: Add an entry d1,Si3112r.sys under [FloppyFiles.2] and under [Files] on dosnet.inf

I didn't have to do anything of the sort. I downloaded the latest drivers for my 3114 chipset and when integrated came up as text mode right off the bat. Did the usual business with nlite then burned.

I've always installed as so;

.sys

.cat

.inf

textsetup.oem

from winsif OemPnP.....

and there are no problems, I would think Nuhi would want

the install to go as Cantankerous states. Not everone is going

to know how to set this all up. Of course I could be wrong, maybe

raid\sata will be Expierenced only area.

@QNX no I just clicked on reg manuf .inf, I'll do it the way I have

in the past but intergrate via nLite, installing from CD, by the way.

started with the htp374 controller and......

has a winxp folder and I just dropped th textsetup.oem in it,

nLited,integrated that folder and the hdd was found, good news.

so decided to contiue install and BSOD after reboot, common with

raid driver install, back to the drawing board.
