@trainee: Are you using this method for a network install of the OS or a CD install? I asked because I have been successful using this method in the network installs at work (Windows 2003), but have not had success with a CD install of Windows XP at home. When I try to do a CD install I receive the following error: File txtsetup.oem caused an unexpected error (18) at line 1742 in d:\xpsp1\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c Just to be thorough, here is my txtsetup.oem file: [Disks] d1 = "HPT3xx ATA RAID Controller Driver Diskette",\Disk1,\ [Defaults] scsi = hpt3xx [scsi] hpt3xx = "HighPoint HPT3xx ATA RAID Controller",hpt3xx [Files.scsi.hpt3xx] driver = d1, hpt3xx.sys, hpt3xx driver = d1, hptpro.sys, hpt3xx inf = d1, hpt3xx.inf, hpt3xx catalog= d1, hpt3xx.cat [Config.scsi.hpt3xx] value = "", Tag, REG_DWORD, 1 value = "Parameters\PnpInterface", 5, REG_DWORD, 1 [HardwareIds.scsi.hpt3xxXP] id = "PCI\VEN_1103&DEV_0005","hpt3xx" id = "PCI\VEN_1103&DEV_0004","hpt3xx" id = "PCI\VEN_1103&DEV_0006","hpt3xx" And, a portion of my winnt.sif: [MassStorageDrivers] "HighPoint HPT3xx ATA RAID Controller" = "OEM" "IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PCI IDE Controller" = "RETAIL" [OEMBootFiles] TXTSETUP.OEM hpt3xx.sys hptpro.sys hpt3xx.inf hpt3xx.cat Disk1 I decided against posting the hpt3xx.inf file as I did not make any changes to it and it is rather large.
