I'm having a problem integrating the NVRAID drivers into a WinXP Slipstream. I've gotten it to work just fine by manually integrating RyanVM's hotfix pack and then adding the drivers, but since his pack is a little behind, I'm now back to using XPCREATE. The problem is that using the exact same method as before, I keep getting an error saying "NVRAID cannot be found" during the textmode portion of setup. It keeps erroring out. This is what I am doing. I am having XPCREATE slipstream all the hotfixes and whatnot. I am then using MAKECAB to compress NVRAID.SYS and NVATABUS.SYS and coping them into the I386\ directory. I am then adding the following code to the end of TXTSETUP.SIF

nvatabus.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1
nvraid.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1

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"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0035 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0036 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_003E = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0053 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0054 = "nvatabus"
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0055 = "nvatabus"
GenNvRaidDisk = "nvraid"
*_NVRAIDBUS = "nvraid"
*NVRAIDBUS = "nvraid"

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

nvatabus = "NVIDIA NForce Storage Controller"

From here, I am creating an iso image using


CDROOT being the root directory where my slipstream install is located. I then burn the ISO using Nero. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again, I've gotten it to work using RyanVM's hotfix pack and I'm not changing a thing (WINNT.SIF, directory structure, etc) from one program to the other. Also, I am not putting these files in the FILECD\ folder. I am making my $OEM$\ and all that after the slipstream.
