Welcome at MSFN Forum!
- Which Intel textmode driver (name and version) did you integrate?
- Which Controller did you enable, when you got the nlite textmode driver popup window?
Hi, thanks for the fast answer!
1) I tried integratind different versions, wich include:
First I've tried the official one from this page on Intel Download Center, specifically the "f6flpy-x64_220.127.116.116.zip" file, since my laptop is x64 based. But the strange thing about this is the fact that the "Detailed Description" section says this driver is for Intel desktop boards, maybe I got the wrong download?
Searching for 18.104.22.1686 on Intel Download Center also returned this other 2 pages:
But them both seem to be for RAID, and mine is AHCI.
After that I found your article and tried the A and B options.
2) First I tried enabling only Series 6 AHCI controller, since that doesn't worked I've tried selecting all of them at the same time (is this a problem?) but don't got lucky.
I don't know if this may affect the process but i'm booting these integrated drivers Windows XP Setup's from a Flash Drive (to avoid burning lots of CD's)
Other thing that make me question if I'm doing something wrong is these two quotes:
What exactly is a legacy type controller? I don't tried the one from driver CD, maybe this works...
When I get home I'm gonna try this ASAP.
I tested drivers 10.1.0.1008 without SP3 and got BSOD. Latest drivers (10.5.0.1027) with SP3 worked.
So if you want to install XP on a Sandy Bridge machine you'll need to integrate SP3 and the Intel drivers. Driver version is not important as soon as they are recent enough, and also is not necessary to "isolate" a specific one, you may integrate the full pack.
Again, the SP3 requirement is not mentioned anywhere in the Intel documentation.
I'm updating the previous post to reflect the conclusions.
This other post caught my attention since my controller is a series 6 one, but how i'm gonna integrate SP3 to a Windows XP x64, far as I know X64 edition only got a SP2.
Thanks for all.
