chaosbuzz replied to Fernando 1's topic in nLiteHey Fernando, thanks for the info! I tried to install this on top of the windows SATA drivers and it does not enable me to hotplug (when I turn on my external sata HD, it is not recognized if windows is already running. Should this driverset allow me to hot swap? I can reformat and install windows, is there a driver I can slipstream in to get the hotswap functionality? Thanks! Chaos @chaosbuzz: 1. Your nForce chipset belongs to the MCP51 series. 2. Since your mainboard is not fully supporting AHCI and additionally no Windows OS likes any other IDE driver than the MS generic ones, I recommend to install the OS without integrating any nForce S-ATA driver. Once the OS is up, I would run the installer of my "Special WHQL Performance Pack" for Windows XP. You will find further informations and the download link here. This way you will get the currently best nForce chipset drivers inclusive the AHCI supporting nForce IDE drivers v9.99.09 at once. 3. If you should not see the "Safely remove hardware" button within your systray, you should install this tool. CU Fernando
chaosbuzz replied to Fernando 1's topic in nLiteNew user to the boards and was looking for some help with my nlite installation. I have an Acer Aspire E360 socket 939 foxconn motherboard with an nforce4 410/6100. I want to have AHCI so I can hot swap my SATA external hard drives and I do not have a floppy drive for doing the f6 method. Which drivers should I put in my nlite installation so I have the correct SATA drivers that will allow me to do this function? I downloaded the most recent nforce driver pack from nvidia but I have 2 folders in it: MCP51 and MCP61, which set do I use? I do not have a RAID configuration, so I would just need the proper SATA drivers. Additionally, since I reinstalled XP, I can only burn DVDs at <2x speed and I have verified DMA and uninstalled and reinstalled the controllers to no avail, why is this happening? Any help would definitely be appreciated, thank you!
