TEXTMODE MassStorageDrivers Method
Posted 01 October 2004 - 11:29 PM
At college I have access to the 3114 and NVRAID which Bashrat's driverpack doesn't work with. So those are good canidates.
If it's a simple script, or java language I might be able to help somewhat. Sorry about that message, i meant no offense by it.

We can discuss more about the code via email or PM, I'm hoping to draw on your expertise in validating the output of the program (ie. does it make the correct directories?, copy the correct files?, and write the correct winnt.sif/textsetup.oem entries?). I'm debugging something for work right now so I may not have a chance to get it to you for a couple of days though...

I have done all kinds of different ways of doing these drivers, (including but not limited to putting the driver entries into the Txtsetup.sif file, which is what I am trying to avoid here, even it does not work that way.) Now from what I have gathered from reading M$ own documents, you have to put your files in a couple places:
$OEM$\Textmode\ (copy all files here from driver folder, remove them from any WinXP folder, but not subfolders within the WinXP folder, you will need those in your textmode folder, (replace folder name for your O/S.)) ie: $OEM$\Textmode\raidtool is fine but $OEM$\Textmode\WinXP\raidtool isn't. $OEM$\Inf (copy *.inf files here) $OEM$\$$\System32\ (copy any other files here not listed elsewhere from Textmode folder, such as *.exe, *.nvu, etc.) $OEM$\$$\System32\dllcache (make hidden and copy *.dll files in here) $OEM$\$$\System32\Drivers (copy *.sys files here) Remove any *.txt files as they shouldn't be needed especially readme's.Now make sure you dont include any internal folders from your driver set. For example if your download includes a WinXP folder pull out the files from that folder and put them all into your Textmode folder, your going to edit your Txtsetup.oem file to make it work correctly. If you have a Disk1 file without an extension, or a disk1.tag file, or something to that sort, make sure it's in the Textmode folder. Now place your Txtsetup.oem file there as well, then open it cause you need to make sure it reads similar to:
;textsetup.oem [Disks] ;includes settings for NVRaid, NVATA, as well as Promise Fasttrak 376 from MSI. ;For NTFS use (WinNT32.sif): d1 = "NVIDIA RAID DRIVER (SCSI)",\disk1,\Textmode\ ;For Fat use (WinNT.sif): d2 = "NVIDIA RAID DRIVER (SCSI)",\disk1,.\Textmode\ d3 = "Promise FastTrak 376/378 Driver Diskette",\fasttx2k,\Textmode\ d4 = "Promise FastTrak 376/378 Driver Diskette",\fasttx2k,.\Textmode\ d5 = "Promise SATA378 Driver Diskette", \ulsata,\Textmode\ d6 = "Promise SATA378 Driver Diskette", \ulsata,.\Textmode\ [Defaults] scsi = RAIDCLASS scsi = FastTrak_TX2K_xp [scsi] RAIDCLASS = "NVIDIA RAID CLASS DRIVER (required)" BUSDRV = "NVIDIA NForce Storage Controller (required)" UlSata_xp = "WinXP Promise SATA378 (tm) Controller", UlSata FastTrak_TX2K_xp = "WinXP Promise FastTrak 376/378 (tm) Controller", fasttx2k [Files.scsi.RAIDCLASS] driver = d1,nvraid.sys,RAIDCLASS inf = d1,nvraid.inf dll = d1,nvraidco.dll catalog = d1,nvraid.cat driver = d2,nvraid.sys,RAIDCLASS inf = d2,nvraid.inf dll = d2,nvraidco.dll catalog = d2,nvraid.cat [Files.scsi.BUSDRV] driver = d1,nvatabus.sys,BUSDRV inf = d1, nvatabus.inf dll = d1,idecoi.dll catalog = d1, nvata.cat driver = d2,nvatabus.sys,BUSDRV inf = d2, nvatabus.inf dll = d2,idecoi.dll catalog = d2, nvata.cat [Files.scsi.FastTrak_TX2K_xp] driver = d3, fasttx2k.sys, fasttx2k dll = d3, ptipbmf.dll inf = d3, fasttx2k.inf catalog= d3, fasttx2k.cat driver = d4, fasttx2k.sys, fasttx2k dll = d4, ptipbmf.dll inf = d4, fasttx2k.inf catalog= d4, fasttx2k.cat [Files.scsi.UlSata_xp] driver = d5, UlSata.sys, UlSata dll = d5, ptipbm.dll inf = d5, UlSata.inf catalog= d5, UlSata.cat driver = d6, UlSata.sys, UlSata dll = d6, ptipbm.dll inf = d6, UlSata.inf catalog= d6, UlSata.cat [Config.RAIDCLASS] [Config.BUSDRV] [Config.UlSata] value = "", Tag, REG_DWORD, 1 [Config.fasttx2k] value = "", Tag, REG_DWORD, 1 [HardwareIds.scsi.RAIDCLASS] id = "GenNvRaidDisk","nvraid" id = "*_NVRAIDBUS","nvraid" [HardwareIds.scsi.BUSDRV] id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_008E", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0085", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00D5", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00EE", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E3", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00E5", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0035", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0036", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_003E", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0053", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0054", "nvatabus" id = "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0055", "nvatabus" [HardwareIds.scsi.FastTrak_TX2K_xp] id="PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3376", "fasttx2k" id="PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3373", "fasttx2k" [HardwareIds.scsi.UlSata_xp] id = "PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3373","UlSata"Now make sure in your WinNT.sif file you have:

Once you have opened each of those files and noted what names in the folder they are in need changing and change those names, you are ready to burn your CD, if you do not do this step, Windows XP will miss a lot of the files, or your CD writer program will attempt to rename them incorrectly, prior to burning the files. (Roxio version 6 was severly bad about doing this, even with a regular WinXP disk, after you already clicked the "Burn" button, and if you cancelled it wouldn't let you burn the disk. If you didn't change the names and add the $Restore$ file with the names inserted in them in the proper folders, XP wouldn't find them later!)
Now according to M$'s obscure instructions on this, under Windows XP, it should work, but to this point I keep getting that dreaded error 18 in line 1747 error, which is driving me up the friggen wall... I should also mention that I have tested these drivers and they work perfectly when using them through F-6, although the only one which loads is the Fasttrak at this point. The NForce, I have never tried to do prior to loading the operating system before, but the fasttrak should be the one which takes as it's necessary for the SATA drives to be recognized with my motherboard. Alas, to my dismay, none of these drivers either take nor will work when trying to do this through unattended. Yes, I have tried every way mentioned so far in these threads, but I still haven't gotten them to work.

I dumped it long ago.
You can use Bashrat the Sneaky's driver-packs, to slipstream the mass storage drivers. Or, atleast the instructions there would be helpful for your purpose. Or you can use nLite.
Posted 08 October 2004 - 07:55 AM
I have tried it all kinds of different ways and still am not able to get the drivers to work. From what I have read there are basically 4 different methods, I have tried them all and all variations of those directions and still cannot get them to work.
Well the one where you run the installer and grab the two files and incorporate them then put the drivers in three different places, modifing the txtsetup.oem files for each place differently, but I need the entire cd, not just what is copied over, so I haven't tried that way.
Nothing seems to be working correctly, not sure if I am having syntax errors, or what. Yes, I use drivers for another motherboard, but the ones for my motherboard are the same drivers, just the one I use are newer versions and are better.
As far as using nLite, I attempted using it but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work correctly, so I gave up, besides I wanted to be able to do this by hand so I know what everything is and where it's putting it, so I can make customizations if needed, either now or in the future.
I should probably mention both my system's spec's as well as the fact that I am trying to use XP Pro SP-2 to do this on.
Chaintech 7NJS Zenith motherboard (P.O.S. I know but I still use it none the less, waiting till next year to upgrade to 64-bit.) XP 2100+ (both o/c'd to 2600+ and non-o/c'd) 1GB PC 3200 Kingston HyperX 512MBx2 matched, running at firstname.lastname@example.org (min volts on 7NJS, wont go lower.) also tried 512MB of PC 2700 Crucial retail memory, using std settings. (Original purchased memory that Crucial reports works with the board, el-cheapo version, but otherwise good memory, only replaced to be able to o/c the 2100+, also running at 1.7volts, 5-2-2-2-1 settings.) †Doesn't seem to be memory related. 2-Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 120GB Sata drives in raid 0, using SATA power cables. †(No problems reported by any utilities provided by Hitachi, tried even just one drive at a time, but they are normally used as a raid 0. †In fact they were still working just fine prior to reinstalling, where I attempted to do this upgrade. †They are accessble just fine when not using the unattended, but F-6 way of installing the drivers.) Plextor 708-A/SW-BL, (even used old HP branded DVD Rom and CD-RW to install but they gave up the ghost, so replaced them with the trusty Plexy, which works on both systems the one I am on now is different in it's using an Asus A7N266-VM/AA with a XP 1700+ no o/c's with 512 MB of Crucial PC 2700 memory, (yes I have two matched sticks of this memory as well.) †I replaced the Plexy in this one which is used in the other one now with a Optorite DD-0405 and WD1000JB and 1600JB hdds †Also only uses on-board audio/video, no cards, lan is reached via Linksys WUSB-11. †Power provided by PC P&C TC-510-ATX. †Case is old HP Pavilion xt963. †Yes it all fits but it's tight, cooling is standard air cooling provided by AMD and HP.) Creative Audigy 2 Platinum ATI AIW 9000 Pro Linksys WMP-11 for networking Antec TruePower 550. Case is Lian-Li PC-82COM Cooling via 5 Lian-Li fans and a CoolerMaster Aero 7+I should also mention this: HOW TO: Create an Unattended Installation of Third-Party Mass Storage Drivers in Windows Server 2003
(*NOTE*- *From above HOW TO* - This procedure cannot be used in conjunction with a Winnt.sif file when starting up from a CD for installation, should be kept in mind when reading, and could also apply to XP w-w/o SP-1 or 2, though I'm not sure, becuase the 2K one, (mentioned in the article,) is what is said to work in both 2K and XP, but there is not a specific entry for XP and there is no reference in the 2K article that mentions this note, neither of them mention XP.)
If anyone can find XP specific instructions please report back, as I have searched the M$ website and cannot find it.

Windows XP Professional Setup
The manufacturer provided file that Setup is trying
to use is corrupted or invalid:
Illegal or missing file types specified in section Files.SCSI.Si3112r_XP.
Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.
This is right after setup says "Loading Windows..."
I check my TxtSetup.oem and everything looks right to me. I'm going to paste the beginning of my file to see if you guys can see any issues. I am assuming that this is where my problem is.

I've sent him all the data required for all Acard controllers just two days ago, so I guess these will be supported soon as well!

Can anyone proove otherwise? (By this I mean, doesn't anyone know a work-around or something?)
EDIT: It's been tested and it doesn't work... :'( anyone ideas? (I don't like messed up folders!)
EDIT2: then why ARE there subdirectories for some drivers? e.g.: Adaptec SATA RAID 1210SA driver's txtsetup.oem:
[Disks] d1 = "Adaptec Serial ATA HostRAID Driver Ver 1.00 For Windows 2000/XP", \hraidsk1, \Win2000 # directory # Specifies the directory on the disk where the installation files are # located. The directory must be specified as a full path from the root and # must not specify a drive.
EDIT3: found why it wasn't working also in the same txtsetup.oem:
# tagfile # Specifies the name of a verification file on the disk. The filename must # be specified as a full path from the root and must not specify a drive. # Setup checks for this file to ensure that the user inserted the correct # disk.going to retry with subfolders now...
Posted 10 November 2004 - 01:45 AM
d1 = "Adaptec Serial ATA HostRAID Driver Ver 1.00 For Windows 2000/XP", \hraidsk1, \Win2000
d1 = "Adaptec Serial ATA HostRAID Driver Ver 1.00 For Windows 2000/XP", \hraidsk1, \
in your $OEM$\TEXTMODE and your I386\$OEM$ folders, you will have all these files and NO subfolders:
Posted 10 November 2004 - 09:27 AM
[Disks] d1 = "Adaptec Serial ATA HostRAID Driver Ver 1.00 For Windows 2000/XP", \ADAPTEC\ADAPTEC, ADAPTEC\ADAPTEC\controller_subfolder
Going to test it now

I tried to install Windows XP Pro (original not sp1/sp2). After hitting F6 to install a 3rd party Mass Storage Device I put in the floppy containing the 2ch x86 files from the CD that came with it. My drive is a 200gb Maxtor.
File txtsetup.oem caused an unexpected error (512) at line 1742 in d:\xpsp1\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c
was the error, It seems this is a very common problem. I went to the silicon image and updated from the .50 driver to 3x12_x86_rdvr-logod-10051.zip and copied the files onto the floppy.
No improvement - same error message again and again. I read on a forum that someone had this error, and then it suddenly worked for no reason. So I just hammered 'S' and enter about 25 times, took out the floppy, rammed it back in and did it a few times again. Eventually it took. No logic at all to it. The floppy was new and formatted (not quick format) with no errors on it.
Anyway, I will be ghosting the bare XP install as soon as possible, I don't want to have to do that again

Plz, plz can you add the 3ware 7500 series drives to RASOR???

I was able to get everything put onto the CD without issue, and it loads fine in VirtualPC... but loading on the laptop itself it acts like there's no MSD loaded at all ("Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer").
This is my first time integrating an MSD, so I may have done something wrong.
Contents of the created folders:
E:\CD_Root\$OEM$\TEXTMODE>dir /b fasttx2k Fasttx2k.cat fasttx2k.INF fasttx2k.sys ptipbmf.dll txtsetup.oem E:\CD_Root\$OEM$\$$\OemDir>dir /b ptipbmf.dll E:\CD_Root\I386\$OEM$>dir /b fasttx2k Fasttx2k.cat fasttx2k.INF fasttx2k.sys ptipbmf.dll txtsetup.oem
The txtsetup.oem file:
[Disks] d1 = "Promise FastTrak 376/378 Driver Diskette", \fasttx2k, \ [Defaults] scsi = FastTrak_TX2K_xp [scsi] FastTrak_TX2K_xp = "WinXP Promise FastTrak 376/378 (tm) Controller", fasttx2k [Files.scsi.FastTrak_TX2K_xp] driver = d1, fasttx2k.sys, fasttx2k inf = d1, ptipbmf.dll inf = d1, fasttx2k.inf catalog= d1, fasttx2k.cat [HardwareIds.scsi.FastTrak_TX2K_xp] id="PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3376", "fasttx2k" id="PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3373", "fasttx2k" [Config.fasttx2k] value = "", Tag, REG_DWORD, 1
And my WINNT.SIF file:
;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [UserData] ComputerName=calico [Unattended] UnattendMode=DefaultHide OemPreinstall=No TargetPath=\WINDOWS [GuiUnattended] OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 [TapiLocation] AreaCode=501 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=BOREALIS [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes [Components] iis_common=On iis_inetmgr=On iis_ftp=Off iis_www=On iis_www_vdir_printers=Off iis_www_vdir_terminalservices=Off iis_smtp=Off iis_smtp_docs=Off iis_nntp=Off iis_nntp_docs=Off iisdbg=Off indexsrv_system=Off msnexplr=Off netoc=Off zonegames=Off [MassStorageDrivers] "WinXP Promise FastTrak 376/378 (tm) Controller" = "OEM" "IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PCI IDE Controller" = "RETAIL" [OEMBootFiles] txtsetup.oem fasttx2k fasttx2k.inf fasttx2k.cat fasttx2k.sys ptipbmf.dll
Any suggestions? I also have an LSI 21320-R driver I want to tackle next if we can get these working.
