EDIT: Easier Question
What can i do that unattended setup will actually load a driver from diskette when i press F6 instead of telling me that the files could not be copied from drive A:\
I need an answer, please!!
i have got one **** problem with my unattended Windows XP CD.
I had a fine working unattended CD, then i got a new HDD and was forced to use the Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Controller, which is onboard my Gigabyte GA8-KNXP. I downloaded the Driverdisk for OS Installation from the GB homepage and started including them in my unattended cd using guides found in this forum (could not find one directly matching my iaStor.sys driver)
My problem is that whatever i do Windows setup will tell me:
\$OEM$\iaStor.sys could not be loaded. Error Code 18. Setup Cannot Continue. Press any key to reboot.I tried putting the drivers (iaStor.sys, iaStor.inf, iaStor.cat) in the OEM\Textmode (and also in the $OEM$ root) folder and adding the appropriate entries to WINNT.SIF, listed below, which results in the error message above:
[MassStorageDrivers] "Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller"="OEM" "IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PCI IDE Controller"="RETAIL" [OEMBootFiles] iaStor.sys iaStor.inf iaStor.cat(txtsetup.oem is NOT included on that CD but setup also shows an error message about some line parsing errors in that file or so, but setup will continue)
Ok, then i tried the method with TXTSETUP.sif by adding the lines below and copy the driver files to the I386 folder, once extracted and once "cabbed" with makecab
[SourceDisksFiles] iaStor.sys = 1,,,,,,_x,4,1 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_24DF&CC_0104 = "iaStor" [SCSI.LOAD] iaStor = iaStor.sys,4 [SCSI] iaStor = "Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller"This was resulting in the same error message (i think there must be something wrong with these lines, but can't guess what). Even if i want to install the driver via F6 it says it can't be copied from A:\. This sux, i want to have my windows on my new SATA drive
So now I kindly ask if anyone could tell me how to fix this problem or look a bit closer at the drivers and my WINNT.SIF.
