W2000 + HighPoint HPT374 SATA Controller

Recommended Posts

Hallo this is my first post to this forum:D

I need to install W2000 on a new machine without!! floppy controller

and a HighPoint RocketRAID 1540 Controller. This is

HPT374 ATA133/SATA RAID chip.

I try to follow the method from


but the resulting cd fails in the initial setup complaining that it

can't find the hpt374.sys driver (I copied a compressed version

hpt374.sy_, created with makecab, into the i386 directory).

Here is the unified diff (created with cygwin)

$ diff -u /cygdrive/e/I386/TXTSETUP.SIF TXTSETUP.SIF

This is my WINNT.sif file (I put it in I386)




I used the newest driver from Highpoint's web side


Is there something obviously wrong with my setup?

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. :D



Ps. The standard XPcreate fails me for a german W2000

in the last 1-2 month :} It complains about a missing

SP0 service pack??? (with and without integrated sp4

source disk)..

Welcome to MSFN, honey!

Hmmm ... I don't see anything off hand in your setup, but then again, I amo not too versed in those DIF files.

As for your WIN2000 problems, I do believe that is due to using DLAUTO=YES, and there is no up to date Hotfix List.
