Hi guys,

I'm trying to install Windows XP on a floppyless ASUS F3Sc notebook, and of course I'm stuck on the SATA drivers problem. I've tried nLite and XPCREATE, both without success.

Following the protocol, here is my XPCREATE.ini file:

 

[XPCREATE]
BOOTIMGFILE=image1.bin
CDBURNER=
CDERASE=NO
CDLABEL=XPCREATE
CDSPEED=12
CDTYPE=CD
COPYSOURCE=YES
DELISOS=NO
DELROOT=YES
DELTEMP=YES
DOCABS=YES
DOCD=YES
DOISO=YES
DOPATH=NO
DOSATA=YES
DOSVCPACK=YES
DRIVERDIR=$OEM$\$1\DRIVERS
DVDPLUS=NO
EXITQUIET=NO
OVERWRITEOEM=YES
QLOG=
RENAMEF=YES
SILENTINSTALL=YES
SLIPHF1=YES
SLIPHF2=YES
SLIPMDC=YES
SLIPSPK=YES
STARTSWITCH=/WAIT /MIN
USERFILESCD=
USERWINLANG=
XPISO=XPCREATE.ISO
XPSOURCE=D:\drives\winxp


And here is my WINNT.sif file, put into \I386:

 

[Unattended]
TargetPath=\WINDOWS
OemPreinstall=Yes
OemPnPDriversPath="DRIVERS06\essential"
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
Repartition=yes
DisableDynamicUpdates=yes


I get those drivers from Intel:

intel82801HEMSATA

They come with 2 folders, complete and essencial. I've put both into \drivers folder.

complete contents are:

[.] iaahci.inf iastor.sys readme.txt
[..] iastor.cat license.txt SWI.xml
iaahci.cat iastor.inf [PREPARE] txtsetup.oem

essential contents are:

[.] iaahci.cat iastor.cat iastor.sys
[..] iaahci.inf iastor.inf txtsetup.oem


My SATA controller, according to EVEREST:

Intel® 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller

The Windows XP installation says that no drivers were detected.

PS: As I said, I'm just trying to install Windows XP. If there are any easier ways to do it by using a pendrive or something like that, please teach me. I don't really need an unattended installation.

PS2: Sorry about my english, I'm brazilian.

Thank you.

Regards,

Percivall

Try this http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=19792 . It worked for me with XP and I use XPCREATE.

@All,

Is there anybody out there that is testing with the new XPCREATE version or is it just a joke.................................

Please make the new tool available to someone who is using the previous version with satisfaction.......................

Greetings,

Bitfrotter
