- If the message was like "The file IASTOR.SYS is corrupt", you obviously have taken the 32bit driver version. This doesn't work with a 64bit OS.
Solution: Integrate the 64bit driver version (link is within the start post).
- If the message was like "Could not copy the file IASTOR.SYS", you either have burnt a currupted CD (too hiigh speed) or may have created an unattended install CD and have tried to load the textmode driver by using the F6/floppy method.
Solution: Burn your CD with lower speed. Don't hit F6 and don't insert a floppy.

Do I have to buy new memory just to install XP on this board, or can I use the DDR2 that I am currently using in the 975 board? I do not think x48 supports.
Thank you, Dave

If you should get problems while installing Windows XP or Vista onto your new system, you should just remove 1 RAM stick. Once the OS is up, you can reinsert it.

Since Intel recently has released new official Intel Storage Manager drivers v184.108.40.2061, I have updated again my guide (first post of this thread) and uploaded the newest textmode drivers.
If you have an ICH7-10 chipset Intel S-ATA/RAID Controller and follow the download links of my guide, you will get Intel's newest S-ATA and RAID drivers - as usual already prepared for an easy integration.

very usefull post and nice info thank you all!!
After reading it I managed to overcome the iaStor.sys error at the setup of win XP to an Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Xi2428.
Using an original XP cd with SP2, added with textmode the appropriate drivers and installation completed with no errors.
My problem is that when I tried to add both service pack 3 and drivers and make an unattended installation, when istallation begin I got again the error that iaStor.sys can not be loaded (although I can see my HDD and iastor.sys is loaded and start the install)
Is there any way to use nlite for both drivers AND sp3 or I should install SP3 afterwards??
Thank you in advance for your help.
Posted 07 July 2008 - 04:51 AM
What you have written is very interesting, because I didn't know about this issue. Maybe the current nLite version has still a problem with the integration of SP3, if done simultaneously with the integration of the Intel textmode drivers.
Only solution I see: Don't do the integration at once.
I will contact Nuhi regarding this problem.
Posted 07 July 2008 - 05:07 AM
thanks for the quick reply!
I will test today to integrate SP3 to the CD that I have already integrate the drivers and it is working (not simultaneously as i tried before) and I will let you know the results... (integrade SP3 and afterwards the drivers is not working for sure as I have already tried it)

Some users reported about big differences, if they used the "golden" XP RTM version , XP SP1 or XP SP2 as source for the SP3 integration.
Posted 07 July 2008 - 05:55 AM
Maybe you did something different this time, anyway slipstream SP3 into the clean, not previously modified SP2, then the drivers. If it fails attach the i386\txtsetup.sif file from that failed ISO for me to look.
If that is fine then it might be that the sys file itself got corrupted somehow so you might extract the i386\iastor.sy_ and compare to the iastor.sys from the original driver folder.

i had same problem after starting to use livexp instead of bartpe (both winpe )
i was just postin a new message to you with new iaahci.inf file i created (with your and galapos help), i started to read the 1st message to see if any new update there, so there it is (poor me after working on some days ) http://kerneltrap.org/node/7582
i confirm the message there too, it is the same iaAHCI.INF file i created (i mean adds are the same), Both "AsusP5B" and "Intel® Desktop Board DG965RY" uses 82801HB in ahci mode with same hwid. "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2824&CC_0106"
To solve LiveXP problem; LiveXP uses DPs driver pack, DP_MassStorage_wnt5_x86-32_805.7z (extract, change, repack)
adding new iaahci.inf file to D\M\I3\
and in DriverPack_MassStorage_wnt5_x86-32.ini
at [I3] section in line "ms_1_hwids=" adding VEN_8086&DEV_2824&CC_0106 to the end, than repack.
i also informed Dps team, thanks to Galapo and Jaak.
i checked Intel_textmode_drivers_32bit_v220.127.116.111_repacked_by_Fernando.zip for hwid, still no support from intel i guess.
This message is for informing you, thanks to your good work.

Thank you very much for your updated informations regarding the AHCI support of Intel ICH8 chipset mainboards.
As you probably may have seen, I have added some informations for ICH8 users to my guide.
The best and easiest way to help other users with ICH8 S-ATA Controllers would be, if you would upload the already "modded" IAAHCI.INF and TXTSETUP.OEM on the basis of the actual driver version 18.104.22.1681 to RapidShare or another Hoster (as Akkuma had done it here for the older version).
Then I would just add the links to my guide.
Posted 08 July 2008 - 04:10 PM
includes 2 files:
i tested both with bartpe (regular) and worked perfectly.
please check my work, as i am not an expert about the subject.
in the pdf file, at page 11, there is info showing 2824h id, god knows when intel add this to its driver package.

Thank you very much for your quick reply and for preparing and uploading the drivers with customized IAAHCI.INF and TXTSETUP.OEM files.
On the basis of yours and Galapo's work I have prepared a small package, which contains the 32bit and 64bit Intel textmode drivers v22.214.171.1241 customized for the use with ICH8 chipsets.
Here is it: http://rapidshare.com/files/128342349/Inte...r_ICH8.zip.html
Although your linked drivers obviously worked fine with your chipset, I have done some minor modifications hoping, that this won't have any negative effect:
- To make it easier to find the correct Controller, I have named it "Intel® ICH8 SATA AHCI Controller Fernando-Galapo" (instead of "Intel® 82801HB SATA AHCI Controller Fernando-Galapo").
- Additionally I have removed some "_RAID" entries, which somehow were within the "ICH8 82801HB_Galapo" part of your IAAHCI.INF file (if these add-ons are needed, please let me know it).
Before I am going to add the download link to these modded drivers into my guide, I would like to get your feedback again. Please have a look into the modded driver files again and test them, if you have the time.
Your work is a great help for all users with an ICH8 chipset mainboard, who want to use the AHCI features. Thanks again!

i made 2 trials,
1st with the 32bit ones you provided, works fine
2nd with deleting %PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2824&CC_0106.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_mobl_Inst, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2824&CC_0106 lines
(looked for mbl reference in pdf and i saw no mobile device for hwid 2824, i guess no problem in future too)
1- No problem for changing names (2824h signature is not for mobile)
maybe this one would be nice too: Intel® ICH8 SATA AHCI Controller Fernando-Galapo (82801HB)
2- No problem in changing _RAID (2824h is not for raid, it was a mistake)
you can do whatever you want in naming, np for me
the pdf file (313057.pdf) at http://www.intel.com...updt/313057.htm is nice to learn about ICH8, i saved this file in name:
"Intel IO Controller Hub 8 (ICH8) Family Specification Update_313057.pdf" on my pc in case of any other ICH8 probems.
For all users reading this message:
Intel Sata AHCI controller of 82801HB is added to Fernando 1's repacked drivers. you can get it from the 1st Post of this subject.

That's great - I didn't expect your reply as soon!
As soon as possible I will add the customized drivers to the first post of this thread.
Users with an Intel ICH7/ICH8/ICH9 (without "R" or "M") chipset mainboard, who want to use their Intel S-ATA ports at "AHCI Mode", will find customized 32/64bit textmode drivers within my guide (first post of this thread).
Since I don't know, if these modified drivers will work for you, I need your feedback!

I tried an Abit IX38 GuardGT with the following controllers:
Intel® ICH9 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 2 - 2926
Intel® ICH9 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 1 - 2920
JMicron JMB363 Sata / Pata Controller.
I integraded all the textmode drivers for ICH9R/M and JMicron but
I got the message : iastor.sys is corrupted.
PS: I must add that I integraded all the controllers for the win_CD
could be used for as many chipshets.
