Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers

1,534 posts in this topic

Is it possible to switch back and forth between AHCI mode and IDE mode on this install of XP /w AHCI drivers?

In other words, if I reboot, change my BIOS back to IDE mode, and boot into XP, will it BSOD or will it work fine? I'm afraid to try this, because I might crash windows in a way that requires a reinstall...

I can't speak for going from AHCI to IDE, but I went from IDE to AHCI using this method. It worked perfectly on the first try...

http://forum.msi.com.tw/index.php?topic=106575.0

Why, exactly, would you want to "switch back and forth"?

Hi,

I have an old Dell latitude C840, for witch the HDD is not detected when trying to install an original Windows XP SP 3 (the cursor stay pending on the black screen), the laptop integrate an Intel 845MP chipset witch have the 82801CAM ICH3-M Controller Hub, I wanna integrate this chipset's controller driver to load it in the textmode by nLite but I can't find the necessary files, is what I'm thinking about possible or not?, cause when I tried Windows Sweet 3 it does, but it very slow and some futures are absent, add to this I wanna make mine with programs and futures like I want, please can you help me?

I'm really sorry but I'd get in trouble at work probably if I read all 44 pages of this thread...

Everything I saw so far is for an nlite made installation.

What about deployment of WIM images using windows PE? Everything worked fine, but when I booted to XP finally I got the intro screen for a second, then BSOD. I traced the problem to this particular situation. It is a Dell box with this Intel chipset I am deploying too.

Does anyone know a solution, or way to get XP to recognize the drive properly? If I just load the drivers into the image and edit the registry to point to the directory of the drivers will it work?

Thanks all.

Since I doubt, that your old Dell Latitude C840 with its Intel ICH3-M Southbridge has any on-board SATA Controller and a SATA AHCI or RAID Controller less than ever, your problem seems to be totally off topic.

You probably do not have to load (F6) or integrate any S-ATA or P-ATA textmode driver. Maybe your system just needs a Processor to AGP Controller driver or something else. You will find some approproiate drivers >here<.

I am sorry, but I am not able to help you.

You should have read just my guide (=first post of this thread). There you get all needed up-to-date informations regarding the integration of Intel's AHCI and RAID drivers into a Windows XP CD by using nLite.

As you already found out, this is the nLite and not the Windows PE Forum.

The driver integration into a WinPE image works totally different than the driver integration into a Windows XP CD. Furthermore you are not abe to use nLite, if you want to slipstream a WinPE CD.

Please post your problem within >this< or any other PE Builder Forum.

Regards

Fernando

Thank you for the reply...

I only posted here because this seems to be the only reference to this Intel SATA driver issue I could find. I'm not using BartPE, I'm using Iceman's Windows PE deployment walk through. I'll check with him I guess.

I was trying to install windows XP SP3 with the latest Intel SATA drivers (9.6.0.1014), NVIDA, AMD AHCI, Jmicron, integrated in the installation ISO (done with nlite). During the installation however I 'm getting a bsod.

BAD_POOL_HEADER

...

***STOP: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0xF8471538, 0xF8471B50, 0xCCC35D5B)

*** acpi.sys - Address F8471538 base at F845B000, DateStamp 480252b1

*** acpi.sys - Address F8471B50 base at F845B000, DateStamp 480252b1

Although this eror appeared when I test with Virtual PC, I ignored this and burned a disc to test.

I am testing in the system: ASUS P5QL-PRO with ICH10.

If I set the SATA mode to AHCI, the disk would boot well without any errors.

But.... If I set the SATA mode to IDE, the Blue Screen appear with the same error.

My temporary solution: I tried to del old OS Source, running Nlite again, adding fewer driver but it still not working. Could you help me, Fernando? Please.

* I upload the file named "last session" that Nlite made. This file contains which types of drivers that I have intergated, could you see it and tell me if there is some mistakes?

It doesn't and won't work, not this way. You should only integrate one SATA driver with nLite, usually the one you need for you PC. If you want a CD with more than one SATA driver, use DriverPacks or look at the Device Drivers forum http://www.msfn.org/board/device-drivers-f88.html

Thank you for your reply :thumbup . But I often intergated drivers like that way (in the past, with the previous verson of Fernando's drivers) so I do not understand why this time it gets some errors. :( .

PS: Fernando said:

Tip:

If you are not sure, which of the listed Controllers are the suitable one(s) for your chipset, enable all of them (Windows Setup will find and install the correct driver).

True, but I'm pretty sure it means, for e.g. if you're not sure if it's Intel ICH8 or ICH9, but you have to be sure it's Intel, otherwise you get a 0x7B BSOD. Now, I really want to know how you manage to integrate several different SATA drivers with nLite and don't get any problems. One of the problems that should arise is that every set of SATA drivers has a specific txtsetup.oem file, which contains data pertinent to the specific driver. When integrating different drivers, my logic tells me that one txtsetup.oem file will overwrite the other.

Well, this is one sample for multi SATA drivers in one disc :thumbup :

I still keep the discs which I have made since the previous version of Fernando's post, I have tested these discs in a lot of computers and they have been running well :) .

From the last reply with you :D, I have tried some others way to find what is wrong in this version of SATA. And, even when I just intergated the Intel SATA driver, I got the BSOD again when testing in Virtual Machine :( , what's going on? I upload the next "LAST SESSION.ini" of nlite as a proof. Anybody could solved this problem?

Well, after a long search, I find out that Intel textmode driver 8.9.0.1023 mod by Fernando is still good at this time :sneaky: . If we still use the latest driver on post #1, we may get the BSOD when booting in IDE mod or in Virtual PC. But it still boot on AHCI mode in real hardware :wacko: .

May be, in the next version of driver, Fernando could solved this problem. It would be very convenient if we could add all SATA drivers into one discs (with the previous version of SATA drivers we could do that easily). Thank you Fernando and Sp0iLedBrAt for your help. Best wishes to you :) .

PS: Would you mind uploading again "Intel textmode driver 8.9.0.1023 mod by Fernando" to mediafire for me? I have searched a lot but all link for this died.

Upon your request I have reuploaded these specially modified 32/64bit versions of the Intel MSM driver v8.9.0.1023 to MediaFire.

Here are the links:

32bit Intel textmode driver v8.9.0.1023 mod by Fernando

64bit Intel tectmode driver v8.9.0.1023 mod by Fernando

Good luck!

No, the new RST AHCI and RAID drivers are running fine after having been integrated into a Windows XP CD and installed onto a real (not a virtual) system running in AHCI or RAID Mode.
why new driver cause bsod bad pool header?
This is not the usual consequence of using the new Intel RST driver.

Please give us some informations about your hardware (Southbridge details of your mainboard), your SATA settings (IDE, AHCI or RAID) and a short report about what you have done and what happened.

Fernando...if you were a woman...I would kiss you. I have been trying to install XP Pro SP2 since around 8pm tonight (it's now 4am) on my Asus P5E Deluxe. I finally found your recommendations and as we speak...XP Pro w/SP2 is finally installing. Thank you so much!!!

hi, i have a problem, and this problem is probably the same with heaps of users out there who cannot boot XP PRO 64 bit (with sata/raid) drivers and achieve a successful install.

i get a stop 0x0000007b error message when i try to boot with xp. it loads the drivers, (no need for f6 - i'm sick of reading sad case ppl saying u need a floppy in other posts all over da net!). it happens when it says "setup is starting windows" or something like that right after drivers are being loaded.

My dvd rom is operating as external USB, because i cannot use the SATA DVD Drive in AHCI or RAID mode. hmm...

i DON'T want to use IDE function because my whole purpose of integrating drivers with sata/raid is to USE Raid... and i need it that way for video editing. windows 7 was allright, but XP 64 is better.

if my annoying problem is solved, i, and a whole lot of other ppl on da internet forums will be happy too.

such a problem doesn't happen when booting with win 7 64. only xp in AHCI and RAID mode.

Hi AhmedKayihan,

I am a XP x64 (the greatest windows) user and using my ahci + raid disks (xpx64 on raid0 disks) too. Follow Fernando's great work to success and feed back on further success or failures etc.

btw, I am not a strick tester but I guess* xpx64 performance is not very good with raid0 ;). Check google for comments.

Good luck

:thumbup

@Fernando

I can not use msfn.org's new skin to pm on something not directly related about your current topic, how can i pm to you (maybe through 911 or ...)

yeah i fully read them. however i still can't get a fix for the BSOD 0x7b error. its frustrating. i did everything the post said. didn't you ever get that error?. also, did you attach ur dvd rom with usb (the same problem i had where SATA is not recognised properely with AHCI and RAID) ? can't boot with it, must be attached via usb

@ AhmedKayihan:

Welcome at MSFN Forums!

i get a stop 0x0000007b error message when i try to boot with xp.
If you really want help, you should give me some additional informations:
  1. Please let us know the chipset and the Southbridge of your system. Alternatively you can post the vendor and the name of the computer or mainboard.
  2. Are you running your SATA hdd('s) in AHCI or in RAID Mode?
  3. Which Windows XP x64 Pro version (without SP = SP0, with integrated SP1 or SP2?) was on your USB drive, when you tried to get the OS installed?
  4. Did you slipstream any drivers into the XP x64 image? If yes, which ones? Most important are the vendor and the version of the integrated drivers.
  5. Where did you get the Windows XP Professional x64 version from? Did you really use an original (=untouched) OS as source?

it loads the drivers, (no need for f6 - i'm sick of reading sad case ppl saying u need a floppy in other posts all over da net!). it happens when it says "setup is starting windows" or something like that right after drivers are being loaded.
Which drivers have been loaded? If you are running your SATA hdd('s) in AHCI or RAID mode, they will not be detected by the Windows XP x64 Setup, unless you have loaded (F6) or integrated the suitable AHCI or RAID textmode driver.

If you really didn't load or integrate any textmode driver, then you obviously used no original (=untouched) OS as source. You can easily verify it by having a look into the AMD64 directory of your XP x64 source. If you will see a file named WINNT.SIF, the OS has already been customized by you or someone else.

@Fernando

didn't you ever get that error?.
in the past yes ;) , with Fernando's help not anymore.

attaching dvdrom from usb and ahci/sata etc. things are totally different. At least you can be sure connecting through usb has no issue on installing xp (x64 or x86 etc.) , I use usb connection my self for years to install.

I strickly advice you to follow Fernando's posts providing required information asked properly, be sure there is light in the end :thumbup

@Fernando

I just figured out to use msfn pm, and just send one to you, I hope I managed :). Thanks a lot again.

•Intel® X58 / ICH10R . its an asus p6t6 ws revolution motherboard.

•running in RAID mode . must be RAID, otherwise RAIDed HDDs don't work in AHCI

•xp pro x64 with SP2 integrated

•not in usb drive, but SATA DVD drive connected via usb (acting as an external, otherwise i cannot boot with cd or dvd... it says cd rom boot priority...35, etc etc etc)

•yeh, i slipstreamed ALL Sata AHCI and RAID drivers for Intel, just to be sure. my main one is ICH10R raid, and thats what i care about. i even did a floppy disk, with f6 and it said windows has already loaded them, so the drivers are loaded properely

•as i said, there is no need for f6, i have intergrated them.

•i think the cd has been customised, as it had sp2 on it, and i added the drivers. i added textmode drivers, and pnp aswell (after many cd's, i decided to add the whole lot to guarantee it) and the size grew by like 1 mb
