Which exact driver(s) are you trying to integrate with nlite (or which specific computer is it)?

 

I mean, it makes little sense to test in virtual box something that will behave differently when (if) the actual specific hardware is detected.

 

There are tens (or more) different SATA drivers, and the installation of the one (or the other) will be "triggered" by the install routine hardware autodetection.

 

If you are trying to make a (almost) "universal" Windows XP install disk, you'd better go for the DriverPacks (the site does provide detailed instructions for use with nlite):

If your bios motherboard has option to change from SATA(AHCi) to IDE you can install XP without integrating sata driver.

Then after installation you can enable SATA using a reg value and SATA drivers.

So do we. :yes: Please answer the 1st questions in the 1st reply .

Also from what you write, you get past the partitioning/formatting part of the install and things go wrong far later ("after done installing devices"), so what makes you think that the problem comes from the SATA driver?

Maybe there is the usual communication problem.

 

You should have a "goal" or "expectation".

 

Is this goal ?:

  1. prepare an XP source that can be installed in VirtualBox
  2. prepare an XP source that can be installed on a specific machine (with a specific SATA controller)
  3. prepare an XP source that can be installed on a large number (but not *all*) of machines with various SATA controllers

Please choose one.

 

If your goal is #2 and you wish to test the result in VirtualBox, it is very likely that you will fail.

Post #2 asked -

1 - What is the hardware (name Who Makes it and what is Model) computer

2 - What Driver (name it and where you got it) you integrated (Text Mode Driver?)

 

Specifically *why* VirtualBox may fail -

https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch05.html

 

Apologies, but you will not get much help by *not* answering questions. Please answer *all* questions.

 

So far, you tell us *only* -

1 - XP integrate driver (which one?) with nLite

2 - Blue Screen (what is message?)

3 - Trying to install in VirtualBox

4 - BIOS has no SATA Mode Change

No *detail* information. :(

the installation of windows xp for sata hard disk, tested using virtual box.

Sorry for one more question; Is it "tested OK on VirtualBox" (and crash on real hardware) or is it "testing on VirtualBox"?
