I met a thorny problem about integrating Silicon Image 3531 SATA Controller driver

The goals I want to achieve is ,
First boot from WinPE2004 to have a diskpart action according to the situation which will be HardDisk only and SSD+HardDisk
After completing diskpart partition, the AP will launch the Winnt32.exe to install XP

My test process is ,
Step one
Customize the WinPE2004 environment
Create a Pure WinPE2004 iso file named G71-NCMXXXX.iso with the Windows XP Professional distribution
Open the G71-NCMXXXX.iso with UltraISO
Edit the txtsetup.sif under G71-NCMXXXX.iso\I386\
[SCSI.Load]Si3531 = si3531.sys,4[HardwareIdsDatabase]PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_35311095 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_14981043 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_82501043 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_320A1462 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_30D4103C = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11071734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_90A01019 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_30d4103c = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_8958152D = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_408317C0 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_0690107B = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_111F1734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_2F121509 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_3FAD1462 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_30DE103C = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_408517C0 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_2001103C = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11411734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11421734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11441734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11451734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11461734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_11471734 = Si3531PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3531&SUBSYS_01781025 = Si3531
Copy all of the relative driver files (.sys,.dll) to \I386\System32\Drivers\
Copy all of the relative inf files to \I386\Inf\
Save the G71-NCMXXXX.iso

Step Two
Create a temp folder named English
Copy Windows source directory (I386) to English folder
Create $OEM$\TEXTMODE folder to I386\
Copy all of the driver files(.sys,.dll,.cat,.inf and Txtsetup.oem) to I386\$OEM$\TEXTMODE\
Create $OEM$\$1\Si3531 folder to I386
Copy all of the driver files(.sys,.dll,.cat,.inf and Txtsetup.oem) to I386\$OEM$\$1\Si3531\
Edit Unattend.txt
[Unattended]    UnattendMode=FullUnattended    OemPreinstall=Yes    OemPnPDriversPath="Si3531"    TargetPath=\WINDOWS    OemSkipEula=Yes    DisableDynamicUpdates=Yes     UnattendSwitch=No    FactoryMode=Yes [GuiUnattended]    TimeZone=4    AdminPassword = *    EncryptedAdminPassword=NO    OEMSkipRegional=1    OemSkipWelcome=1    AutoLogon=Yes [UserData]    ProductKey=DG38C-RRJG2-WFM92-V2TVC-J2YBJ    FullName = "Your User Name"    OrgName = "Your Company Name"    ComputerName = *[Branding][URL]    Home_Page=http://www.msi.com.tw[Proxy]    Proxy_Enable=0    Use_Same_Proxy=1[Identification]    JoinWorkgroup=Workgroup[Networking]    InstallDefaultComponents=Yes[GuiRunOnce]    C:\SYSPREP\msi.cmd[MassStorageDrivers]     "Silicon Image SiI 3531 SATALink Controller for Windows XP/Server 2003" = "OEM"    "IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PCI IDE Controller" = "Retail"    [OEMBootFiles]    SI3531.CAT    si3531.inf    si3531.sys    SilSupp.dll    sippd.inf    SiRemFil.sys    SiWinAcc.sys    txtsetup.oem

Step Three
Open G71-NCMXXXX.iso again with UltraISO
Drag the English folder to the root of G71-NCMXXXX.iso
Save it

Test Result:
An error message which is "Si3531.sys could not be found" at the beginning of Text mode installation

I also have tried the method as http://unattended.ms...f8c1f9ab65c186/ mentioned,the result obtained with the same before
If I copy the Si3531.sy_ to $WIN_NT$.~BT\ manually in WinPE environment,the "Si3531.sys could not be found" will be replaced by "Can't copy Si3531.sys"

Hi all
I have found out the root cause finally.

I just remade the process again. And find out that the error message which is “The file Si3531.sys could not be found ” was replaced by “Illegal or missing file types specified in section Files.SCSI. Si3531_XP "

And I found that this is a known issue as http://support.micro...kb/275334/en-us described


a) I edit the txtsetup.oem (annotate the line “dll = disk1,SilSupp.dll” under [Files.SCSI. Si3531_XP])

B) Create $$\system32\drivers to $OEM$\

c) Copy SilSupp.dll to $OEM$\$$\system32\drivers

d) Remove the line “SilSupp.dll” under [OEMBootFiles] in unattend.txt

Test Result is PASS J
