Hey almighty,

Try this. Download the following:

VIA.INI

http://rapidshare.com/files/57016964/VIA.INI

VIA_DRV.RAR

http://rapidshare.com/files/57017094/VIA_DRV.RAR

1) From a clean WinXP, copy the i386 directory and subdirectories to C:\WINXP

2) Download VIA.INI and copy it to C:\TEMP

3) Download VIA_DRV.RAR and extract it to C:\TEMP\DRIVERS

4) Download RAID Slipstreamer x86 v4.0 Build 070920.exe

5) Open a command prompt and type the following (with quotes):

"Raid Slipstreamer x86 v4.0 Build 070920.exe" /source C:\WINXP /os XP /pnpini C:\TEMP\VIA.INI /drvpath C:\TEMP\DRIVERS /quick

6) Now update your WinXP CD or ISO with this udpated i386 folder

Be sure to update your WINNT.SIF to include:

[unattended]

OEMPnPDriversPath=Drivers\RAID;

Note1. I have only included XP plug'n'play codes into VIA.INI and XP drivers into VIA_RAR.RAR. For other OSes, you have to do it yourself...

Try it out and let me know if it works please.

To whoever who left me mail regarding using the RS v4.0 x86 version to integrate x64 drivers, here's how you do it (using Build 070920):

1) Download RAID Slipstreamer x86 v4.0 Build 070920.exe

2) Create a C:\TEMP

3) From a clean Win2K3, copy the TXTSETUP.SIF to C:\TEMP

4) From a clean Win2K3, copy the DOSNET.INF to C:\TEMP

5) Create a RAID.INI with your Windows 2003 x64 driver pnp codes (you have to do it yourself) and copy it to C:\PNP

6) Copy all the Windows 2003 x64 drivers into C:\PNP\DRIVERS. Copy everything, not just the INF or the SYS files.

7) Open a command prompt and type the following (with quotes):

"RAID Slipstreamer x86 v4.0 Build 070920.exe" /source c:\temp /os 2003 /PNPINI c:\pnp\raid.ini /DRVPATH c:\pnp\drivers /quick

8) After the slipstream has complete, manually copy from C:\TEMP\i386\$OEM$ to your <root_path>\$OEM$. if you don't do that, it might BSoD at the GUI phase.

9) Then copy both C:\TEMP\TXTSETUP.SIF and C:\TEMP\DOSNET.INF to <root_path>\AMD64 overwriting the ones in there

10) Almost forgot...copy all the files with extension ".SY_" to <root_path>\AMD64 as well. If you don't do that, it will BSoD at the textmode phase.

Remember the $OEM$ path must be placed at the root of the CDROM for unattended x64

The following is what my Win2k3 R2 SP2 x64 DVD looks like:

\
\$OEM$
\AMD64
\CMPNENTS
\I386

Be sure to update your WINNT.SIF to include:

[unattended]

OEMPnPDriversPath=Drivers\RAID;

Let me know how it goes please.

If you have extracted the files to the C:\TEMP\DRIVERS I asked you to, then you shouldn't get that error.

It may be possible that when you extract VIA_DRV.RAR into C:\TEMP\DRIVERS, you also created a C:\TEMP\DRIVERS\VIA_DRV directory. When that happens, be sure to change the /DRVPATH parameter to /DRVPATH C:\Temp\Drivers\VIA_DRV

Well, that was the intention.

It should work, assuming that you have done everything correctly. Eventhough I don't have a motherboard that use VIA drivers, I was able to run the command-line and it showed that the pnp codes and drivers were slipstreamed to the corresponding paths.

does ur raid splistreames has my driver or i have to add my drivers in raid folder??

I haven't checked but that was also the intention of /PNPINI and /EXPORT switches so that you can do it yourself without me having to check if your codes were included. :)

For your case, run RS with the /export switch. It will generate the RAID.INI file. Open using notepad and search the pnp code yourself to see if the code has already been included in RS. If yes, then run RS without parameters. If no, then you may provide your own when using /PNPINI and /DRVPATH switches.
