  1. I suspect, that it's an issue of your SATA connected optical CD drive, which has boot problems while running in AHCI Mode. You may search for a firmware update to solve the problem. So you got XP running at least? This would verify, that you took the correct AHCI textmode driver. Yes. I guess I probably had the right drivers all along and it was an issue with the CD drive.
  2. Same as before. Gets to the bit where it says setup is starting windows and then BSOD. Yes. I used Nlite to do this. Yeh. Not quite sure why USB worked and CD didnt though. Although, I'm happy that its working at all. Nlite is a great tool BTW.
  3. Fernando - I'm sure you're getting sick of me but I'm now getting somewhere.... Used Nlite to slipstream SP3 in and the single driver of IntelR ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller. If I used Nlite to burn the ISO to CD it still didnt work. However, if I take the amended XP source directory and use USB_multiboot (http://www.msfn.org/board/install-xp-usb-t111406.html) and then boot from USB drive it goes into SETUP and recognises the disk !!!!! I did notice however that setup running from USB stick is 100x faster than USB CD drive (took about 10 mins for setup to load windows files).
  4. Just so we're talking the same here - this is EXACTLY what happens. 1. Boots from CD - message SETUP is initializing 2. Windows Setup at top, at bottom SETUP IS LOADING FILEs (takes a while) 3. Then SETUP IS STARTING WINDOWS. 4. BSOD with STOP ERROR 7B.
  5. This is not strange at all, if you let the machine boot on its own.You have to hit any key when prompted, if you want to boot off the XP CD. Usually this s not necessary. Once the hdd is detected by the XP Setup, you can choose the partition, where you want to get XP installed, and format it by using the NTFS file system. Yeh. I know i gotta hit key to boot from cd. I was just surprised that some old stuff is still on the HDD. Have fdisked it so theres nothing on the HD. Tried one of my slipstreamed SP2 CDs from yesterday but still the same. ie. BSOD because HDD is not detected by setup.
  6. You hopefully know, that the actual XP version is the one with integrated SP3. Why don't you slipstream SP3 instead of SP2? Any reason why it wont work with XP SP2 though? I guess I could try my SP2 source and slipstream SP3 into it as well.Ok, I thought that you didn't know the actually available SP version. There is just 1 driver named IASTOR.SYS, but this driver s supporting a couple of different Intel® SATA Controllers. Yes, it will (unless the SATA hdd is not connected to any of the supported SATA Controllers). AFAIK this information is not correct. Strange. I can see no reason why it wont work. Maybe I do need to clear out and fdisk the HD or something first? As far as I can see this should be working ok.
  7. Hmmm. If I let the machine boot on its own now - its still trying to boot into windows 2000 which is a little strange. I was initially trying to get Windows 2000 loaded on this using a saved image and Acronis backup and recovery. Maybe I need to clear out whats there first and fdisk the disk or something. Tried to boot using gpartd boot disk but it cant find the SATA disk....
  8. You hopefully know, that the actual XP version is the one with integrated SP3. Why don't you slipstream SP3 instead of SP2? Any reason why it wont work with XP SP2 though? I guess I could try my SP2 source and slipstream SP3 into it as well. My downloaded driver file contains about 10 drivers. At the moment, in nlite I'm just selecting all of them. Should I be doing this? I assumed that the windows xp install would just find the right one. However, someone on another forum is saying, I think, that I need to pick the right one? (http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=419504)
  9. OK. Trying again with a proper SP2 XP CD (rather than original XP and then slipstream in SP2). Also, the drivers from www.toughbook.com.
  10. So your hdd has been detected by Windows Setup and you could choose the partition where you want to get XP installed? If yes, you obviously have integrated the correct textmode driver and enabled the suitable Intel SATA Controller.Now to your BSOD: If it happens at last reboot, you should try to reboot this time in safe mode (F8). You will see the detailed error message, if you hit F8 and choose the F8 option "Don't reboot at system failure". Further questions: 1. Which options of nLite have you used and which drivers did you integrate besides the Intel textmode ones? 2. How much RAM does your system have? 3. Is there another hdd connected? If yes, did you check the "HARD DISK BOOT PRIORITY" BIOS settings? No - sorry it hasnt gone all the way through the install. Its the first part of the install where it fails with BSOD so I dont think the HDD is deteched properly. 1. Service Pack, Drivers, and make iso. I've got an old XP disk, so slipstreamed SP2 into it. Only drivers I integrated were your textmode ones. 2. RAM - plenty I should think. Its new out of the box. 3. No other HDD.
  11. Do I need to slipstream the Intel matrix storage manager driver as well?
  12. :-( Still the same. Goes all the way though the install and then says starting windows and then BSOD STOP 7B. Any ideas?
  13. Yes, since the hdd of your system obviously is connected to an Intel SATA AHCI Controller, you should follow my Intel textmode driver integration guide (= first post of this thread). Yep - thats the thread I've been reading. I've downloaded the drivers mentioned in 2a (32 bit ones). Re-done nlite slipstream and windows is currently booting from CD. Bit slow cos its a USB CD drive. One thing - I followed your instructions this time and chose SINGLE DRIVER whereas previously I just clicked on driver folder. MAke a difference? Fingers crossed...
  14. Which "SATA driver" did you integrate and which of the listed Controllers did you enable? All textmode drivers usable for Windows XP contain a file named TXTSETUP.OEM. You obviously have integrated the wrong driver or checked the wrong SATA AHCI/RAID Controller while integrating it. You either took the wrong driver or did not check the appropriate Controller.It is impossible to give you any advice unless you give us some details regarding your mainboard/notebook (vendor, name, chipset and Southbridge chip) and the textmode driver you have integrated (vendor and version). No, if you have integrated the driver, you should not press F6 when prompted. Otherwise Windows Setup will not find the path to the needed textmode driver. Its a panasonic toughbook CF-19K. I got the drivers from www.toughbook.com. http://www.toughbook.eu/media/63708_specsh..._EN_210x297.pdf I extracted them to a directory and then when nlite asked I pointed it at the directory. I then ctrl-clicked all of the drivers in the list (about 10).

  15. Actually, do I still need to press F6 or just let it carry on?
