  1. NVRAID works on MSI K8N Neo Platinum motherboard as well! Thank you all very much . This thread has helped me make an unattended XP SP2 install cd with the NVidia RAID drivers automatically loaded. Although the procedure to get your nvraid drivers detected and loaded for use during windows installation has been posted in this thread before, I'll show it again to help others who need another example. I also used information outside the thread from http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1703&page=8 1) copy the raid drivers which came with your motherboard to a separate directory of the future cd : in my case CDROOT/$OEM$/$1/Drivers/nvraid 2) add the following line to the [unattended] section of winnt.sif OemPnpDriversPath="Drivers\nvraid" 3) paste the following entries to the end of TXTSETUP.SIF BEFORE the ' ' character that marks the end of the document [SourceDisksFiles] nvatabus.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 nvraid.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_008E = "nvatabus" PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0085 = "nvatabus" PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00D5 = "nvatabus" PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00EE = "nvatabus" PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E3 = "nvatabus" PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E5 = "nvatabus" *_NVRAIDBUS = "nvraid" GenNvRaidDisk = "nvraid" [SCSI.load] nvatabus = nvatabus.sys,4 nvraid = nvraid.sys,4 [SCSI] nvatabus = "NVIDIA NForce Storage Controller" nvraid = "NVIDIA RAID CLASS DRIVER" 4) pack the 2 nvraid drivers makecab CDROOT\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\nvraid\nvatabus.sys CDROOT\i386\nvatabus.sy_ makecab CDROOT\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\nvraid\nvraid.sys CDROOT\i386\nvraid.sy_ 5) Burn the unattended install CD 6) Setup your raid hardware, an set the correct BIOS settings. That's all I needed to do. I see that the drivers get loaded during the first windows installation phase, and my RAID0 harddrives show up as only 1 drive, to be partitioned. Great!
