I think i misled you...when i say endless reboot...it doesnt do it on its own....its just when the CD finishes loading files it asks to reboot pc to continue / finish installation...its at that point that it gets back to the beginning of the XP install process....

Did you follow the advice "Hit any key to boot off the CDROM"? You should only do it, when you start the OS installation, not during the restarts while installing the OS.

Usually the first reboot comes after the user has decided, onto which hdd and partition the Setup should install the OS.
So this is the most important point: Did the XP Setup detect the SATA hdd or not, when you booted off the original Windows XP with integrated SP2 or SP3 after having set the SATA Controller to "Compatibility Mode"?

The error message after trying to install XP in AHCI mode is :
(BSOD)
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer......
Askes to check for viruses Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers...check drive to make sure it ois properly configured.....run chkdsk / f for corruption

This error message means, that you have integrated a wrong SATA driver.

No, it auto loads from cd...no asking me to hit any key......just goes straight into windows setup.....maybe cos its a formatted harddrive and theres no other option available? not sure

I reset to compatibility mode...restarted pc with cd in drive...no prompt to press any key to boot from cd....It auto loads windows setup screen...bottom left window says setup is loading files......
Once files are loaded i get the welcome to setup screen *To setup windows XP now, press ENTER...then i get the User Agreemnet..click F8
Next screen i get i took a screen shot of for you.....as im not for sure its seeing the drive...seems to be if it lists the size ??

I choose the C partition and hit enter...thne i get the "are u sure screen to continue" Press C.....pressing C then gives me the option to leave partition as is or format...it lists the same size mbs as the screen shot....If i choose "leave as is" i get the following screen....showing a previous install attempt.

This error message means, that you have integrated a wrong SATA driver.

I didnt intregrate any...just xp wth SP3 slipstreamed...guessing NO sata driver will get the same error as wrong sata driver?

@ tones:

It seems, that your XP installation problem has been caused by wrong BIOS settings.
The XP Setup tries to install the OS onto the Intel UNDI (= Universal Network Device Interface) via your LAN port. For details you may look >here<.

Please enter the BIOS and make sure, that the CDROM has been set as "First Boot Device" and the HDD as "Second BOOT Device". Try to disable all other listed BOOT Devices incl. "LAN".

After having done and saved the correct BIOS settings, retry to boot off the original XP CD with integrated SP3 (but without any third party drivers) in "Compatibility Mode" and look, what happens.
You should choose the offered NTFS partition 1 and let Setup do a quick format of it..

If the changed BIOS settings should not help, do the following:
  • After you have created a new and formatted partition for the XP installation wait until the reboot happens.
  • At the beginning of the reboot press the key for entering the BIOS.
  • Set the HDD as "First Boot Device", save this setting and let the computer reboot.
This should solve your problem.

Good luck!
Fernando

Task: there should be no USB at boot menu listed.

First disconnect all external devices.

Windows setup does write boot settings to first BIOS device.
I suspect BIOS set USB memory as first BIOS device.
Hence booting fails, because hard disk don't contains boot settings.

Detaled specs: http://www.csd.toshi...663#contentArea
The card reader "4-in-1 Bridge Media Adapter" refers to a "Realtek RTS5121 USB Card Reader". Does "USB memory" refers to internal card reader?
Can you disable this device in BIOS?
It's your machine, I don't know this BIOS and can't suggest the required change.
Enable/disable "legacy USB support" may help or not.
Or disable USB altogether. This may require a unattended installation.

This is getting of topic here: you don't have a problem with Intel drivers.

Yes....when the timer comes on screen warming of a reboot thats when ive removed it....so it has no chance on reboot finding the cd again and try to force it to see the files its supposedly copied to hard drive...did this in both modes...





This is getting of topic here: you don't have a problem with Intel drivers.

My apoligies...questions just led to more questions and here we are....

Ok...reading last few poists i began to get frustrated....so...restarted laptop..hit F2...reset BIOS back to shipped defaults....restarted pc with cd in drive....started loading windows then get the BSOD ...we know why...cos its defaulted back to AHCI mode.

Entered BIOS again...set to compatibility mode....saved...restarted pc with cd in drive....It WORKED !!!! it loaded files...restarted and continued on installing windows like it should have days ago !!

Look in BIOS....the ONLY changes i see are that the boot sequence is back to HDD as 1st boot..and its in compatibility mode. So i have NO friggin clue why it all of a sudden took. USB is still showing as boot option 5.....

Really appreciate all thye advice guys.....but im no wiser as to why its working now and not 3 days ago....

@ tones:

Although the last posts didn't have much to do with the topic of this thread, we are happy, that you were able at least to get Windows XP installed onto your laptop.
The only little disadvantage for you is the fact, that you are not able to use the AHCI features now, because you have set the SATA Controllers to "Compatibility Mode".

If you want to get Windows XP reinstalled while running the SATA Controller in "AHCI Mode", you have to load/integrate the correct SATA AHCI driver. So it may be a good idea to run the Device Manager, open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section and look for the HardwareID's of the listed "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controllers" (right click onto them > "Properties" > "Details" > "Property" > "HardwareID's").
Please post them here and I will give you an advice, which driver you should take.

@ Fernando 1

Really appreciate the follow up and offer of helping me get the laptop back in AHCI mode...i no longer have the laptop im afraid, my friend has gotten it back and is just soo happy to have it running again that as of right now he doesnt want to let it out of his sight :)
Thant said, if i get it back in my possession i will do as you requested and post the information you asked for.....i too would like to see it set back to AHCI.

Id still love to know why everything you asked me to try initially didnt seem to work.....and then all of a sudden hay presto.....*weird

Again, Thank you for all the help and advice

1. It took a long tim until I had checked, that your problems have been caused by wrong BIOS settings.
2. Generally notebooks have very poor BIOS settings, but the model of your friend additionally is extremely exotic. Furthermore the manual of the Toshiba L305-S5902 doesn't contain any word about the BIOS settings.

@ all:
Since Intel recently has published special RST drivers for their newest Z68 chipsets, I have just updated the start post of this thread.
Changelog:
  • new: 32/64bit Intel RST drivers v10.5.0.1026 WHQL dated 04/26/2011
  • new: complete RST driver and software pack v10.5.0.1027 WHQL (already extracted)
  • new: Intel INF Update Utility (Intel chipset "drivers") v9.2.0.1030 WHQL (extracted and prepared for the integration)

Hi!
I haven't used Nlite for quite some time. Now got a new board with Q67 on it. In BIOS you can choose only AHCI/RAID/Disable for SATA, so no IDE mode.

Install WinXP SP3 32 Bit from original cd brings me 0x7B BSOD after showing "...Starting Windows..." during text mode setup. The reason is easy to guess.

Then I downloaded the newest nlite and tried to integrate the newest RST F6 drivers into XP install source. This time, the "Starting windows" won't cause BSOD anymore, and the SATA HD was recognised. But then during the file copying in text mode, it then asks for nhelper.exe etc. incl. all the ahci.cat/sys/inf and iastor.* from F6 driver set. I had to press ESC to skip. But during GUI setup of windows, 0x7B BSOD comes.

I have tried F6 driver set from Intel, from the one from this site, and tried to include the chipset inf also, always the same. I used "Text Mode" when Nlite slipstreams the drivers. I tried "PnP" mode too, but this wont work because of the obvious reason. I then tried to slipstream them both in 2 session, the same GUI BSOD.(I guess this is the same as slipstreaming in "Text Mode").
And I tried ahci.inf and iastor.inf, both the same.

Ok, from my guess, the setup couldnt find the driver files for PnP driver and GUI Setup. I checked the install CD I created, all driver files are in correct directory as in the txtsetup.sif stated. I have no clue now what the reason could be.

Any hint would be welcome!

Btw. I use USB CD ROM for setup(actually a USB Stick refactored into a USB CD ROM and a write USB Stick). Could this be a problem? But why setup can copy the other windows files...

@ knoblauch:

This is what I recommend to do:
1. Create a folder named XPCD within the root of any partition (e.g. C:\XPCD).
2. Copy the content of the original XP CD into that folder.
3. Run nLite and let it do just the following tasks:
  • Integration of the Service Pack 3 (unless your source is already an XP SP3 one).
  • Integration of the 32bit version of the Intel RST driver v10.6.0.1002 WHQL as TEXTMODE driver. You can get it from >here<. When you get the popup window, just highlight the listed "Intel® Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller".
  • Creation of the ISO file.
4. Burn the ISO file as bootable image.
5. Set the SATA mode of the destination system to "AHCI".
6. Boot off the freshly created XP-CD with integrated SP3 and Intel AHCI driver.
7. Install Windows XP.

Good luck!

Thanks for the quick answer Fernando 1! I will try your method tomorrow. And yes, its already a SP3 CD.

Update:

Tried ur method, still the same. But then I found the real cause of the problem: There is another original xp cd in the other sata CD-ROM the whole time, which let the setup trying read source file from the first CD-ROM, the SATA one, not the USB one I modified, even it is booted from the USB one.

Removed the CD, booted from the USB, install runs without asking those AHCI driver files. But in the GUI section at startup, it tells some "asm" "incorrect parameter" error and stops. Looks like that it has problem reading the usb stick, even all the chipset inf are also integrated.

Whatever, I burned this as a CD and used the SATA CD-ROM, install works now, without a problem. I will look into the USB CD-ROM issue later.

Update2: the "asm" error was because of the USB stick. The ISO itself is no problem :)

Within the last day or so, Intel released their latest Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (AHCI/SATA) driver. This is a message for anyone with an ICH8R or M chipset. For whatever reason (perhaps by error), the new driver 10.​6.​0.​1022 does not support ICH8(R or M). I have an Express 965 chipset, and no go today.

The new INF file omits:

%PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106
%PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Install, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2821&CC_0106.DeviceDesc = "Intel® ICH8R/DH/DO SATA AHCI Controller"
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106.DeviceDesc = "Intel® ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller"


The weird thing is that the older ICH7 chipset is supported - I just updated my 945 box. It's also weird in that Intel's download site indicates 965 support.

For those with 965/ICH8, use the old 10.1.0.1008 IRST/SATA driver for now. This could have been an oversight on Intel's part. Who knows.

Update: AHCI and RAID drivers completely stopped for ICH8

@ PVU:
Thanks for your information.regarding the missing support of ICH8R and ICH8M Southbridges by Intel's official Intel RST drivers v10.5.x.xxxx and v10.6.x.xxxx series.
Addendum: This is only valid for ICH8R/M users, who are running their SATA Controllers in AHCI mode. RAID systems with an Intel ICH8R or ICH8M Southbridge will be fully supported by Intel's actual RST drivers.

@ all:
Just to prevent a failure of the XP installation onto AHCI systems with an ICH8R/M southbridge, my guide (start post of this thread) still recommends to integrate the RST driver v10.1.0.1008 for all users with an Intel Southbridge from ICH7R/M up - except for those with an Intel 6-series Southbridge ("Sandy Bridge").

Please keep in mind, that your question has nothing to do with the nLite Forum and the topic of this thread.

Now to your question:
What do you mean with "use" and which driver are you going to take?
Even if you would get the suitable Intel AHCI driver installed onto your IDE mode system, you probably will get a BSOD after having enabled the AHCI mode of the SATA Controllers within the BIOS,
For users, who want to switch their SATA Controllers from IDE to AHCI mode, I always recommend to do a fresh OS installation by using an OS CD/DVD with integrated AHCI driver according to my guide.

Fernando, I believe you modify the RST drivers. Don't feel pressured by this question, but will you attempt to add in those INF lines - force-fitting the latest to work with ICH8R and ICH8M?

I have not tried to do it on my end. Thanks

Update: Fernando, I found you (actually in many places), and you have answered my question.

Your post 350: There is a widespread misconception that the chipset manufacturers are working to develop their drivers only or primarily on improving performance ... In this respect, it should not surprise if the emphasis of development work at Intel is currently not the backward compatibility for the new RST-driver series...

Many thanks.

As you obviously already have realized, I have done what you requested.
You can find freshly "modded" 32/64bit Intel RST textmode drivers v10.6.0.1002 within the start post of this thread too.

@ all users with an Intel ICH8R, ICH8M, ICH8, ICH9 or ICH10 chipset AHCI system:
After having successfully tested them with my ICH8M chipset notebook running in AHCI mode, I decided to present freshly "modded" 32/64bit Intel textmode drivers v10.6.0.1002 within the start post of this thread.
These "modded" Intel RST drivers do support all Intel SATA AHCI Controllers from ICH7R/M up. Contrary to the original and WHQL certified Intel RST drivers v10.6.0.1002 they will be usable with ICH8R, ICH8M, ICH8, ICH9 and ICH10 AHCI systems too.

To make them compatible with all these different chipsets I have added the following Intel SATA AHCI Controllers to the iaAHCI.inf and TXTSETUP.OEM files:
  • "Intel® ICH8R/DH/DO SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_2821&CC_0106
  • "Intel® ICH8 SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_2824&CC_0106
  • "Intel® ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_2829&CC_0106
  • "Intel® ICH9 SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_2923&CC_0106
  • "Intel® ICH10 SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_3A03&CC_0106
  • "Intel® ICH10 SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)" - DeviceID: DEV_3A23&CC_0106
Please let me know it, if any of the Intel AHCI Controllers from ICH7R/M up should not work with my "modded" driver.

Have fun!
Fernando

Fernando, I am helping someone out with a Toshiba Equium L300-146 that originally came with Vista. Here is a device manager screenshot...

As you can see it lists IC8HM but also 82801 HEM/HBM SATA ACHI Controller.

I gather that I need...

Here are the links to the actual RST drivers v10.6.0.1002, whose INF and OEM files have been customized by me to make them usable with all Intel AHCI systems from ICH7 up:

* >modded 32bit Intel RST textmode driver v10.6.0.1002< (with additional support of Intel ICH8R, ICH8M,ICH8, ICH9 and ICH10 Southbridges)


but what about the 82801 HEM/HBM SATA ACHI Controller? Should I worry about those?

Here is a Speccy report of his system. I'm not sure whether the chipset is important.

Also, what about that Microsoft iSCSI Initiator? Any concerns there?

Please advise. Thanks!

@ -X-:

The listet device named "Intel® ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controller" is nothing else than Microsoft's "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller" with its 2 IDE Channels, which are managed by the generic MS IDE driver named PCIIDE.SYS. It is the file named IDE78IDE.INF as part of the Intel chipset device INF files (INF Update Utility), which is responsable for renaming the "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controllers".
So the only IDE device, which is controlled by a special Intel driver, is the "Intel® 82801 ICH8HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller", which is another name for the "Intel® ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller", but using the same Intel AHCI driver named IASTOR.SYS.
The device named "Microsofr iSCSI Initiator" is nothing to worry about. It takes care, that the non-SCSI hdd's are managed like SCSI ones, which is an advantage for the "hot-plugging" AHCI feature.

Regards
Fernando

Hola Fernando!!!
Thank you so much for the great tutorial!
I´ve followed all the steps that you gave here but i still get a BsoD when trying to install Windows XP 64 bit SP2. (unfortunately there is no SP3 for win xp 64 bit edition).
Can you please help me?
These are my specs:

GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 (rev 1.1) Gigabyte Mobo.
i7 2600k Intel CPU
8 gigs of ram
1.5T Western Digital Black Caviar Sata 3 Hard drive.

I´ve tried to install Win 7 64 bit edition and i have the same problem BsoD.

I can see the hard drive in my latest version of BIOS but the OS won´t recognize it... I´m so frustrated I don´t know what else to do...

I´ve tried IDE and AHCI in BIOS but i still get BsoD, tried with the drivers from your post as-well and the ones on the Gigabyte website...

Can you PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Thank you!
I will be waiting for your reply!!!

Take care from Argentina!!!

@ pabloXV:
Welcome at MSFN Forums!

Please give me some additional informations:
1. Which driver (version and architecture) did you integrate?
2. Which Intel AHCI Controller did you select while integrating the driver?
3. Did you really get a BSOD, when you tried to boot off the original XP x64 CD after having set the SATA Controllers to "IDE" mode? If yes, you should check your memory sticks.

Greetings from Germany to Argentina
Fernando
