I need your special help, I have tried close to 8 times to install Windows 2000 SP4, Wasted already 8 disk's I bet, And Yesh i'm so nervous even after I cannot install it proper,
Anyway I know it's because I've a new Computer with SanderBridge/ Intel i5 2500k processor & Mother board of Gigabyte p67a-ud4-b3,
I remember that I had the same error/problem when tried to install WinXP long time AGO but it's solve anyway I'm really interesting and need the 2000 version.
- * Ah I forgot to say that i'm using AHCI mode.
I will do everything to run this OS, if someone please can explain to me, I did some many change and things In the Nlite and noting work for me,
Tried to copy manual by the orginal Disk that came from the Store, At first I made a mistake I guess that I used the PNP Normal mode,
Then someone told me that I've to use the Textmode even that failed... So I just download some last pack of drivers include everything from the last November 2011. And I just puted everything into the Disk & The result was like some weird error like :Line 11233 error, What ever I'm sure there is a solution and thats why i'm here and write to you all that story
Thanks in advance & sorry for my english.

Welcome at MSFN Forum!
What is the reason for your idea to run Windows 20000 with a brandnew computer?
I am sorry, but I have to tell you, that you will not be happy with a totally outdated OS running in AHCI mode on a Sandy Bridge CPU mainboard.
- The OS Windows 2000 is too old and its Setup does't know anything about the SATA AHCI features.
- None of the actual Intel AHCI drivers do support Windows 2000.
- There are some very, very old Intel Matrix Storage Manager series drivers, which do support Windows 2000, but you will not be able to use them, because the HardwareID's of all actual Intel SATA AHCI Controllers are missing within the files, which are responsable for a proper installation.

Well I don't mind even to change back to IDE, but there is some big reason that I need the Win200 version....
I would like to know if someone there have any idea or option that might be work,
- I'm on dual boot, so it's will be my secound OS.

Another question before i'm going to IDE, there is anything that I have to add/make up in the CD with NLite?
And if you please can explain to me what to add? chipest what hardware (PNP Mode, or Text mode), I have no experience in that all, And after I wasted 8 disks, I'm just afraid to try more 10x times and failed again

Thanks for your statement regarding the possible origin of the BSOD's you got and thanks for the link to the patched and the original old Intel MSM AHCI/RAID driver v18.104.22.1680 dated 02/12/2007..
Nevertheless I am missing the answers to my questions.
By the way:
Fernando's patch, however, does not work for VirtualBox ICH8 Sata Controller.
Users, who want to install Windows XP by using the VirtualBox, should integrate an Intel AHCI/RAID driver of the meanwhile outdated "Intel® Matrix Storage Manager (IMSM)" generation.
The latest available Intel MSM driver is v22.214.171.1245 dated 04/05/2010. You can find the "modded" 32/64bit versions of this driver within the start post of >this< thread (Chapter II, second driver set). I am pretty sure, that they will work with your system using the VirtualBox.
Awesome work fernando, loved your nforce4 packs and now with my new comp you've saved me with intel drivers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
will you update the drivers etc in first post here as some are outdated now?

Since Intel recently has published new official RST drivers, I have just updated the start post of this thread.
- new: official 32/64bit Intel RST drivers v10.8.0.1003 WHQL dated 10/17/2011
- new: modded 32/64bit Intel RST drivers v10.8.0.1003 (usable with all Intel AHCI ad RAID systems from ICH7R/M up (except X79)
- new: complete Intel RST drivers and software pack v10.8.0.1003 (already extracted)
- new: Intel chipset device INF files set (Intel chipset "drivers") v126.96.36.1992 WHQL (extracted and prepared for the integration)

Welcome at MSFN Forums!
To be honest I don't understand the correlation between your problem and this thread of the nLite Forum.
The topic of this thread is the integration of the Intel AHCI and RAID driver into a bootable Windows XP CD. The tool nLite cannot be used, if you want to get any driver slipstreamed into a Windows 7 image.

I am trying to install Windows 7 64 bits on a intel ich7r raid 5 group disk, but I am having problems. The installation process does not recognize the (raid) disk. When I load the Intel F6 RST driver, an error appears showing that "the drive version is incorrect. Contact the manufacturer".
The raid is OK and bootable. The SATA MODE is RAID on bios.
Is it realy needed to (pré) install the Intel ich7 RST driver in a new Windows 7 installation?

Welcome at MSFN Forum!
After having saved the new BIOS settings you will be able to use your keyboard even in DOS mode.

Fernando's drivers to enable AHCI.
I also made a demand in this hread but can not remember the account...
I wonder: I'm about to switch to Windows 7, there I will not have
these problems? The AHCI is generally recognized with P5B?

welcome again at MSFN Forum!
Nevertheless I recommend to install the latest Intel RST driver once Win7 is up. Usually you will get a better performance with the special Intel AHCI driver than with the generic MS AHCI driver.

Nlite differs from what Intel instructs as how to manually integrate the drivers. Is this as safe as using Intel's method??
