nLite dead end
Posted 20 December 2012 - 10:51 AM
In order to install sata-drivers I found out about Nlite. Problem is when pointing to the windows install folder which I created from the OS_CD-R, Nlite asks for the I386 file, which is right there in the install-folder. Selecting it or selecting the whole folder gives no result. What could be the problem?

You mean "which I copied", right ?
the windows install folder which I created from the OS_CD-R
nLite is looking for specific files that it cannot find. Either your OS cd is incomplete (modded or warez) or you missed some files when copying.
Point nLite directly to your CD (it can copy the files by itself to a folder of your choice) and see if it makes a difference or be sure you see and copy all the hidden files that are on the root of your original install folder. If still not ok, report what the sticker/label reads on your CD.

According to your last post, the CD may be damaged.

In bios(ASUS P5RDI-VM) the ssd is in the bootdeviceslist but not in the main master-slavelist. Bios autodetects IDE-devices only and I don't see a ACHI option
in the bios, only ACPI(?)

Does the install disc detect the HDD but not the SSD when one replaces the other ? (that's what I understand from your post???).
The drivers are for the controller, not for the disc itself, that would indicate the drivers do work.

Does it list the 4 SATA devices (as being "none"?) or does it only list IDE devices? In th boot list, does it appear with a denomination that would indicate it is properly recognized ?
In bios(ASUS P5RDI-VM) the ssd is in the bootdeviceslist but not in the main master-slavelist.
As your HDD and SSD are not plugged to the same controller, forget the last sentence in my previous post.
Where did you find that "10.3..46" version ? Your motherboard's page on Asus site has a 126.96.36.199 version (from 2005), maybe that would work. The inf file says it's for PCI\VEN_10B9&DEV_5287 , 5288 and 5289.

You got the message, that the file NVRD64.SYS is corrupt (not damaged). This always happens, when you try to integrate a 64bit driver into a 32bit OS like Windows XP. 32bit Operating Systems cannot use any 64bit driver. That is why you get the message.
Cleaned the xp-cd and Nlite picked it up now. Downloaded the 64 bit SATARAID v10.3.0.46 which I think is the one for my ASUS P5RDI-VM motherboard, and burned the iso-file. Plugged out my old HDD and plugged in the SSD. Installation started! But then the message nvrd64.sys is damaged... Looked an saw this file in the driverpack.

Why did you integrate the NVIDIA nForce SATARAID drivers? These drivers will only be able to detect HDDs/SSDs, which are running in "RAID" mode.
You´re very right, did replace the driver for the 32 bits one. But the problem remains that windows-install cannot find a harddisk.
If you have an nForce chipset mainboard, please give us more informations:
1. What sort of nForce chipset has your system?
2. Is your SSD connected with an nForce SATA Controller at all?
3. Which SATA mode (IDE/AHCI/RAID) did you choose within the BIOS?

If your ULI SATA Controller is running in "IDE" mode, you will be able to get Windows XP SP3 installed without loading or integrating any SATA driver.
That's a ULI M1573 chipset. http://www.asus.com/...#specifications
Does match HardwareId "PCI\VEN_10b9&DEV_5287" ?
If the ULI SATA Controller should be set to "RAID" mode, you will succeed with the XP installation after having integrated >this< 32bit ULI SATARAID driver as TEXTMODE driver.

And did you succeed with the XP installation by booting of this XP image with integrated ULI SATARAID driver?
I have integrated 32 bit ULI SATAdriver as textmode.
The option should be "Enabled", if you want to get the OS installed onto a SATA HDD or SSD.
I don`t have, as mentioned before, the option in bios for AHCI or RAID. Only on page advanced in bios SATA enabled or disabled
