Doubtful, it'd have to work with every single SATA controller chip out there and there's dozens, if not hundreds, of different makes and models. There might be one that covers one manufacturer's family of chips, though.

What I've done is to include drivers for the most popular SATA chips on my boot disk, then do the driver chase if I run across one that's not included(usually laptop). A universal driver would be a Good Thing, just don't think it really exists. It's not like the days with floppy or ST506/402 controllers where the register interface was firmly defined.

Are SATA drivers also known as Mass Storage drivers? there are some on driverpacks.net but not sure if they are the same??

Any chance you could upload the drivers (SATA) that you have included in your disk? They need to be for XP Pro 32bit version only though m8, thanks a million if you can do this for me it has driven me crazy trying to sort this out

Well, the idea is that you try UNIATA, if it does not work, you try posting there, and maybe you get help.

Two possible scenario's explaining why there are no specific posts yet:

1) UNIATA release actually usable by final users is relatively recent

2) UNIATA gives no problems whatsoever ;)

3) users of UNIATA are computer savvy enough to solve their problems by themselves :thumbup

4) people which would have time enough to post there, use instead their time to comment the lack of posts :whistle:

(I'll share a secret with you: Boards start empty, and are filled later by the users' posts :rolleyes: )

...go try helping people... :wacko:

Yes these are the sata (raid,etc) drivers you sould integrate in XP Pro 32bit.

It's under 30mb.

I think that over the years youve picked up my subtle way of answering questions :)

Gotta go, its Mozarella night....

@All

As for UniSATA, for anyone who thinks one pst doesnt mean theres no help available, the boot-land forums are full of some of the most knowledgable people wasting their lives on internet forums ive had the good grace to know. If it doesnt work for you, simply, as jaclaz points out, posy a message, it will get answered.

Anyone can tell me how to integrate uniata in textmode?

I only receive BSOD, i tried some tricks in txtsetup.sif like

put

uniata=uniata.sys,4
in the [sCSI.Load] section at the bottom list

Add all the Id's loaded by uniata in the [HardwareIdsDatabase] section

change PCI\CC_0101="pciide" for uniata

add PCI\CC_0106="uniata"

but not lucky

You should really post a fresh thread for this question and NOT drag up old posts, but refer to them in your new one.

Here are some instructions on manual integration from Windows 2000.

It works the same exact way as XP.

Good advice, so that info is spread in another post, info like fdv's one is probably not read by the member who started a new thread, etc......

Would this be related to Rule #9? :unsure:
