OKay so here is the deal, I have now wasted 8 CD-r's on attemptiong this, and it just won't work for me! I have a DFI nforce4 sli-DR and I am using a pair of raptors in raid0 I am following these directions to a t and well... l,et me be mroe specific I start with a clean install of windows (singlew drive) I install a the nvidia 6.85 nforce driversm anbd the newest display drivers. I install .net 2.0 I install nlite I take my legti x sp2 RO disc and I copy its entire contents into an empty folder on the desktop I start nlite and I select that folder I created with my xp in it, and I click next. I select "integrate drivers" and " make bootable cd" and click next on the ntegrate drivers folder I click "insert" and then "single driver" I browse to this folder exactly "C:\NVIDIA\nForceWin2KXP\6.85\IDE\WinXP\legacy\" and I select the nvatabus.inf file I ensure that the "textmode driver" is selected and that both of the options below are highlit (both of the nvidia required drivers are being integrated) I click next and then yes to start the process, it seems to integrate everything and then it says FINISHED! and I click next I create me bootable disc image, and I give it the volume name of XPPROSP2 (like my disc) I open alcohol 120% and I brun the image to a new CD-r at 4x (to be sure) I restart and let my computer boot from the floppy, with EVERYTHING unplugged, outside of the case I have the monitor, power, PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse plugged in, and inside I have the cpu, ram, video card, two raptors in raid, and DVD burner plugged in, THATS IT! I have my raid built perfectly fine, I have used it on this board before (before I lost the floppy I used and started this whole mess So windows setup starts and detects my arrey, I make a partition on it, and format it, it installs the files, restarts into the next stage of setup and I enter all my information, it restarts again and this time displays the windows boot screen for about a half a second, I catch a slight glimpse of the BSOD, and it restarts. I've done this a DOZEN TIMES and tried a bunch oif different options, made 7 or 8 discs now, tried everything, different burning options, I even downloaded a pirated copy of XP and tried using the files from that, still produces the exact same problem. I am using the newest version of my bios from the dfi.com.tw site. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG AHHHH! this is SOOO beyond frustrating. Going on day three I have been working on this. Thanks in advanced for the help guys. Oh by the way, I have tried a bunch of different versions for the raid drivers. ugh I am going to bed.
