@ htmjakob:
eROM's troubles have nothing to do with your probem, which you have posted within >this< thread. The "import" button you get after the start of nLite is just for loading a previous nLite setting, which is absolutely not recommended, if you just want to integrate a Service Pack and a suitable AHCI/RAID driver into a Windows XP (32/64bit) CD.

Alright, so I tried a completely untouched XP 64 CD, slipstreamed the intel drivers, got 07B BSOD, tried slipstreaming SP3 in to see if it fixed it, but no luck, still getting the BSOD :-(

If you want help, you should give us some informations about
1. your system (vendor and name of the mainboard or pc),
2. the SATA driver version you have integrated and
3. the SATA Controller you have selected during the integration process.

1. MB: P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3, Intel Z68 motherboard
2. I tried the ones you provided in your post for "Intel ICH7R/M, ICH9M, ICH10R/D, 5 Series or 6-Series Southbridge AHCI or RAID system:", and the ones provided on Asus homepage, "Marvell SATA 6G Driver V1.2.0.1006 for Windows 32/64bit XP.(WHQL)", also I tried the "Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software V10.6.0.1002" from Asus' homepage as well.
3. I tred everyone, but also read somewhere to try only the Workstation AHCI controller, but that didn't work either..

Edit/PS: I always use a fresh copy of XP 64-bits, when trying different drivers etc..

@ eROM:
This is what I recommend to do:
1. Make sure, that your system drive (the SSD/hdd, where you want to install Xp x64) is connected with an Intel SATA port (and not with a Marvell one).
2. Start the nLite procedure from scratch (with a fresh copy of the original XP x64 CD).
3. Integrate just the Service Pack 2 (if not already included) and >this< 64bit Intel RST driver (it's the newest) and no other driver.
4. When you get the Textmode Driver popup, just enable the listed "Intel® Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" (and nothing else).
5. Let nLite build the ISO file and create a bootable XP x64 medium (CD or USB stick).
6. Boot off the XP x64 medium and install the OS.

Good luck!
Fernando

For point #5, should I make the ISO, extract, and use WinToFlash to make it work on a USB, or can I simply extract the ISO file into my USB stick, and it will be ready to go?
Thanks a lot for all your help, I am currently building the nLite version with the driver you provided. Will reply with results in a bit.

Probably not. The USB stick has to be prepared for being bootable. I prefer the freeware tool HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. You can get it >here<.

But the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool can't make the USB bootable though, or am I completely off right now?

Edit: And what tool should I use to make the USB bootable, if I can't use the HP Format Tool. Besides WinToFlash of course..

I am not sure about that.

You may take the WinToFlash tool. My favorite USB tool is the "Win7 USB/DVD Download Tool" from Microsoft, which should work for XP (32/64bit) too. For further informations please look >here<.

Hello, Fernando 1 Thank you for your clarification. Intergrating a SATA - AHCI driver into my XP installation CD is my goal in order to be able to continue with XP in a newer laptop fitted with an Intel® 6 series/c 200 series chipset family 6 port SATA AHCI controller 1C03. The fact that the multi-bar option screen nor the "insert" screen do not appear at all, but the one with the "import" button, seems to indicate that there is something wrong with my program/setup, although I have not been able to even guess what it might be. Thank you again.

Your nLite program is ok. Just hit the "Next" button, then you will get the nLite options.

Thank you again, Fernando, for your reply of 27 June. With your advice I have succeeded one or two steps further, but then was advised that Windows had experienced a problem and was forced to close the program. My steps had been: In the multi-choice screen I had selected to integrate a driver and to create a bootable ISO file. In the insert screen I had inserted iaAHCI from a file f6flpy-x86 (I am working in XP Prof 32 bit that I intend to install into a laptop carrying an "Intel® 6 Series /C 200 Series Chipset Family 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller 1c03" with a current driver in the Win 7 configuration "msahci.sys".) From the menu of Intel chipset contollers I ha selected the "5 Series 6 port" as the 6 series was not shown. When it came to the screen "start activity" I was advised of the problem Windows had encountered.
I had tried again, but using the driver v11.2.0.1000 WHQL recommended early on in your write-up with the result of being advised that such a driver did not exist, although I had tried various names that had shown up, (32 bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID - 32 bit Intel RT textmode driver v11.2.0. 1000 WHQL), but to no avail. I resorted back to iaAHCI, bur used the "Intel Mobile Express...". version of controller, as this version had been installed in an earlier laptop of the same manufacturer. But this time the progrm did not even go as far as before with the Series 5 controller version as Windows advised again of having encountered a problem and requested an error report to be sent to Microsoft. Perhaps you are able to guide me further, I am not far from giving up. Thank you.

@ hmtjakob:

You obviously have integrated a suitable driver for your laptop, but chosen the wrong Controller during the nLite integration process. Since your laptop has an Intel 6-Series chipset, you have to check the "Intel® Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" and not any 5-Series Controller.
Please start the nLite processing again by copying the content of the original XP CD onto your hdd. Don't import or load any Last_Session.ini of a previous nLite session. Just integrate the 32bit Intel RST textmode driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL and highlight only the listed "Intel® Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller", when you get the nLite textmode driver popup window.
If you shold get any merror message, please post it.

Regards
Fernando.

Hey Fernando, I am still getting a BSOD when trying to install XP. Same BSOD as before, the 07B one... Any other suggestions? I have tried what you have said, even tried the Windows 7 USB tool, but no success.

The reason for the 07B BSOD is most likely a wrong textmode driver or a wrong SATA AHCI/RAID Controller selection, when you got the textmode driver popup window.
Here are my advices:
1. Make sure, that your OS source is really a clean original=untouched XP x64 one (with an AMD64 directory and without a WINNT.SIF file!) and that you haven't imported any Last_Session.ini at the beginning of the nLite processing.
2. Check the SATA BIOS settings and the SATA port, where your system HDD/SSD drive is connected. The active partition (= the HDD/SSD with the Master Boot Record) has to be connected with an Intel SATA port, which has to be set to AHCI mode within the mainboard BIOS.

Fernando

Hello again, Fernando 1. And thank you for yesterday`s advice. I have now succeeded to integrate a SATA driver into my XP CD, to burn an ISO XP CD and to install the XP OS on my laptop that came with Win 7 64 bit installed and hence with an Intel RST chipset controller. Now I am able to continue working with XP installed in the new laptop. Thank you again for your assistance and patience.

I tried this several times, with several sata ports, but no luck.. As we share the same motherboard, what port are you using for your XP drive, and which drivers did you use? -- My last try was the 6 gb/s sata ports..

Thanks again for the great help!!

I don't have an XP drive, because I am running Win7 x64.
Please give us some informations about your system (mainboard, hdds/SSDs).

@ eROM:

Thanks for the system details.
Here is my advice:
1. Make sure, that the hdd, whis is designed for the XP x64 installation, is connected with one of the Intel (and not with one of the Marvell) SATA Ports.
2. Make sure, that the Intel SATA Controller has been set to AHCI mode within the BIOS.
3. Just integrate the actual 64bit Intel textmode driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL, highlight the listed "Intel® Desktop Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller", let nLite create the ISO file and get the bootable image onto a CD or USB stick.
4. Unplug the Western Digital HDD.
5. Boot off the XP CD/USB stick with integrated 64bit Intel AHCI driver.
6. Once XP x64 is installed, you can reconnect the WD HDD and choose the OS you want to boot by using F8 at startup.

Good luck!
Fernando

Hi Fernando

I am busy preparing and customizing Windows XP x64. I need AHCI text drivers from the major manufacturers (Intel, AMD, NVidia, SiS, VIA), however it will be impossible to go to each manufacturer's website and search for the correct drivers, previously with XP x32 I used "DriverPacks" I went to the DriverPacks website to download driver packs for XP x64 but there is only a x32 version available. Do you know of a website where I can download AHCI text driver collections for the major manufacturers for XP x64?

I appreciate your time and remain hopeful.

Jennifer

Hello Fernando,

I Install WinXP Professional 32-bit on the ASUS X54C i3-2330M and
I want to use AHCI instead of IDE. In order to do this I need to find a driver for:

VEN_8086 & DEV_1C01

Intel ® 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 1C01
Intel ® 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 1C09


I've seen that in case of the same driver users downloaded some drivers from Intel website:
http://downloadcente...t.aspx?lang=eng

but all my attempts to select the appropriate device failed
(I'm not familiar enough with this subject and didn't find an appropriate options combination).

The only drive which I found is for Intel chipset, but it didn't help.


PS
As far as I understand I need a file like iaAHCI.inf with VEN_8086 & DEV_1C01
inside of it.

Maybe you (or anybody) can help to find this driver?


Thanks a lot!

@ JenniferArden:
Hello Jennifer,
AFAIK there is no 64bit AHCI textmode driver collection available. The reason may be, that XP x64 has never been very popular.
Furthermore the XP x64 installation onto an actual AHCI system may fail with a BSOD, if you integate a big variety of different AHCI textmode drivers from different chipset manufacturers.
That is why I always recommend to integrate just the single textmode driver, which suits the on-board AHCI or RAID Controller.
By the way: You can find the download links to many actual AHCI/RAID drivers for Windows XP x64 within the start post of >this< German Forum thread (look into the chapter beginning with the word "Links ..."!).


@ atztek:
Welcome at MSFN Forums!
Now to your question:
Your ASUS laptop has an Intel 6-series chipset. So if you want to prepare a Windows XP CD with integrated Intel AHCI driver, you should
  • download the 32bit Intel RST textode driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL, which I have linked within the start post of this thread,
  • integrate the unzipped driver by pointig to the file iaAHCI.inf and
  • highlight the listed "Intel® Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller", when you get the textmode driver popup window.

As far as I understand I need a file like iaAHCI.inf with VEN_8086 & DEV_1C01 inside of it.

No, DEV_1C01 is the DeviceID of your laptop's Intel SATA Controller running in IDE mode. What you need is the support of the DeviceID DEV_1C03 = "Intel® Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller".

Kind regards
Fernando

Fernando, maybe you can help me.
I bought a computer Portégé Z835-P330 and I'm trying to install Windows XP on it. I downloaded the SATA driver on the Toshiba site. First, I tried to integrate this driver with the program nLite. Now, I'm trying an F6 install with floppy drive, but, when I go to specify additional device, I get a message saying the file TXTSETUP.OEM could not be found.

Toshiba Portégé Z835-P330 Ultrabook Specifications & Features:

@ ZEqNkuT:
Welcome at MSFN Forum!

Why don't you just follow my guide (= start post of this thread) and integrate the linked "32bit Intel RST textmode driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL"?
Tip:
If you are still able to run Win7 with your laptop, open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller" and - if applicable - the "Storage Controllers" section of the Device Manager. Which are the exact names of the listed SATA Controllers (besides the "Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller")?
This may help to find the SATA Controller details (AHCI/RAID) of your laptop.

Regards
Fernando
