Newbie help needed , driver slipstream

3 posts in this topic

I have a Gateway notebook P6318U that usese a Sata driver(SI3531) not included in any version of Windows. Restore DVD not availabe from Gateway. HD died so I have no restore media or partition.

I have the driver, and the COA sticker and plan to purchase a copy of Vista on Ebay.

A few questions:

1 - Can I do this procedure on a Win 7 machine?

2 - The WAIK download is an ISO. I assume I make the cd/dvd and install that?

3 - Whayt is the correct order to slipstream the driver and SP ?

Any other tips ?

Thanks

1. Yes.

2. Yes; you can also mount the ISO as a virtual CD/DVD and not burn it. Look at Daemon Tools and many others similar to it.

3. The correct way? Follow the order in vLite. AFAIK, you can't add a SP to Vista in vLite, so get a SP2 DVD.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply :)

My main problem is integrating the SATA driver into the install so the install can recognize the HD and complete the installation.. I have no problem doing the SP update by downloading and running.

Thanks again
