Welcome at MSFN Forums!
I have no idea what happened, because I don't know what exactly you have done.
But now i'm confrontet with a new problem: I wanted to get acces to the Internet and to my usb-media, so i decided to install my chipset-drivers as i'm used to. So I startet these one:"INF_allOS_18.104.22.1688_PV.exe". The installation worked properly and finished with the request for a restart. I did so. But my os didn't start up again and the whole Windowsinstallation could start again. No my SSD has finished it's installation (I'm tiping from my HDD in IDE-mode). So what to do now? Did these drivers kill my AHCI, or what happened?
This is what I recommend to do:
- Download an already extracted version of the Intel chipset device INF files (Intel chipset "drivers") from >here< and unzip it somewhere on your hdd (but outside the desktop).
- Create a new nLited XP CD according to my guide (you should start the procedure from scratch with a clean source!) and integrate just the Intel AHCI driver (as TEXTMODE), but additionally the prepared Intel chipset "drivers" (as PnP driver).
- Burn the ISO file as bootable Image.
- Enter the BIOS, set the Intel SATA Controllers to "AHCI" mode and make sure, that your SSD is on top of the "HARD DISK BOOT PRIORITY" settings.
- Boot off the freshly nLited XP CD.
- Once the XP installation is completed, you will have the OS on your SSD and all needed Intel drivers should be properly installed.
The complete Intel AHCI/RAID RST and INF Utility packages are EXE files, which cannot be unzipped by using a tool like WinRAR or 7-zip.
You can extract them nevertheless within the DOS-Box (or the "Run" command box) by using the parameters "xyz.exe -A -P C:\Intel" (without quotation marks).
After having completed the extraction you will find the extracted folders and files within the folder named "Intel" of your drive C:
To make it easier for you, I have linked already extracted packages of both EXE files (Intel RST and Chipset Device Software) within the start post of this thread.
There is no "non-textmode SATA AHCI driver" available. The only Intel SATA AHCI driver is the one named IASTOR.SYS and part of the Intel RST/MSM driver package you have to integrate as TEXTMODE driver.
I wanna ask how to integrate non-text mode sata ahci driver?
What you certainly mean is the Intel INF Update Utility (= Intel chipset device "drivers"/"software"), which doesn't contain a real driver, but just information files about how to manage the different Intel chipset system devices.
