Is that for work ?
Integration of Intel's SATA AHCI and RAID drivers Guide and help for XP and W2k3 (32/64bit)

Yes it is for work, Several legacy programs and we're stuck with XP until they pull the trigger on a company wide upgrade.

What I suggested was, that you may highlight both Intel 7-series SATA AHCI Controllers, if you don't know the exact Controller name of your mainboard. That is not the integration of 2 drivers, but the try to enable the support of 2 different Controllers by 1 single driver.
If you have created 2 different CDs, each of them wiith the support of a differen Intel 7-Series Chipset SATA AHCI Controller, it is even better.
If it is your job to customize Operating Systems like Windows XP, you have to use another tool or method.

I appreciate your concern and really appreciate your help.
I'm actually not an IT professional but a real estate paralegal. It is a long story but at the end of the day I am building this workstation for use at my job.
The managing partner at the firm I work at had a hard drive crash a few months ago. Their corpoarate IT support provider wanted crazy money for 3 year old technology to replace the work station
Since he knew I built my own HTPC (what I'm using right now), I told the boss I would tight him up. That's how I ended up here. I built him a Gigabyte z68mx with an SSD running XP. Now it's my turn.
Not sure if that makes me a commercial user or not but I'm not selling hardware or in the computer business.

Here is an extract of the nLite Licence Agreement you have accepted during the nLite installation:
"1. nLite is freeware and can be freely used for any personal non-commercial purposes.
5. nLite is free for personal use only, you cannot use it for any company or business purposes at this time."

>Here< you can find all needed informations about the Driverpacks method. The needed DriverPacks Application named DP Base and the special DriverPacks themselves (e.g. the "DriverPack Mass Storage") can be downloaded from >here<.
Thank you for your understanding.

You can download it from >here<.
After having read the text of the TXTSETUP.OEM file it seems possible for me, that you have to check both listed "Marvell shared library for 32bit (install first)" and "Marvell 91xx SATA Controller 32bit Driver", when you get the textmode driver popup window.
do u happen to have a ahci driver so i can install my windows xp 64
this is the motherboard i tryed all drivers but my ssd is not found and on some slipstreamed disk i get bleu screen

welcome at MSFN Forum!
If your SATA Controllers have been set to "AHCI" within the BIOS, you have to load (F6) or integrate the appropriate 64bit textmode driver (depending on the port,where the SSD is connected).
Here are the download links to both drivers, which come into consideration, but you should just integrate one of them (that one, where the SSD is connected):
>64bit Intel RST driver v126.96.36.1996 WHQL for Windows XP x64<
Important: If you should integrate this driver and get the TEXTMODE driver popup with a list of different Intel SATA Controllers, you should highlight just the listed "Intel® 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI Controller".
> 64bit Marvell 91xx AHCI driver v188.8.131.527 WHQL for Windows XP x64<
The correct driver is the "Marvell 91xx SATA Controller 64bit Driver".

Also - for slipstreaming manually without nLite, I recommend this guide: http://www.msfn.org/...cd-in-15-steps/
In my experience - I first tried it with just iastor.sys - and installation went through first phase - but then at reboot gave Blue screen. But then I included all the files in $oem$\$1\drivers - and it worked perfectly. So make sure to include all the files and set OemPnPDriversPath to the location of the files.

If you have used nLite, then the configuration is created/saved in Last Session.ini and Last Session_u.ini, which are found in the root of the CD, so you don't have to go through too much trouble. Otherwise, removing one thing and adding another to an already modified installation sounds like too much pain for something which is likely not to work.
At least that's my opinion.

As Sp0iLedBrAt already has written, you should forget your idea to modify your old nLited Windows XP SP3 image, which had been customized for being used with an Intel X58 chipset system. You will waste a lot of time and probably will get a dissappointing result.
Provided that you are the owner of an original (= untouched) Windows XP CD with a valid Retail or OEM CD key, I recommend to create a new XP SP3 CD with integrated 32bit Intel X79 RAID driver from scratch. Additionally you may integrate the newest Intel X79 chipset "drivers" (they are just INF files) for Windows XP. You can download this small INF "drivers" package just for your X79 chipset from >here<.
There is no need to integrate anything else. Once Windows XP is up, you can install the actual versions of the other missing drivers (maybe you have to download them from another computer, which has internet connection). The Windows XP Device Manager will show you the devices, which are missing by a yellow mark.

All driver related details are layed down within the files named TXTSETUP.SIF and DOSNET.INF. You may open them with the editor and change what you want, but don't expect any help from my side.
