Slipstreaming VIA SerialATA Drivers

55 posts in this topic

HI ALL

I am rather new to this site

I have a ASUS AV8 which I am having problems with I bought a New XP Pro with SP2 on it in the hope to resolve not seeing the 1 TB WD GREEN HDD

As it happens I have pulling off the Drivers put on to a floppy as it only wants to see a "A DRIVE" to get to see the full 1TB but then when I have done the F6 for RAID drivers etc it does it's bit then I see the drive continue then I get VIASRAID.SYS could not be copied. SHOUT! so then I googled to find to slipstreaming it all

I copied the XP on to drive

I then copied the viapdsk.sy_ & viasraid.sy_ to the I386 folder

I edited the TXTSETUP.SIF accordingly

Now is that all I need to do or are the other drivers required?

Also how hard is it to add SP3 to the disc ? So that's all done. :thumbup

Any other advise welcome little disappointed that the NEW Disc did not see it.

Many thanks Noddy

Hi,

Here is a way slipstream VIA SerialATA drivers easy into WinXP I386 folder. Download attached file, add few lines from Info.txt and copy sys_ files in I386 folder, and that is that.

Someone give this man an award. This was my third try to slipstream drivers to an XP install disk and it worked. Much much thanks, GDragon.

Edit: For anyone out there doing research, I used these drivers to successfully get Windows XP to find a SATA drive on a Soyo Dragon Plus KT600 v2 motherboard (which uses the VIA KT600 chipset).

Well I copied all the code just the way gdragon said and now when I put the startup disc that I burned it starts copying the drivers files, then it goes to "Starting Windows" then I get the BSOD that says "Unmountable Drive" with the following code ***STOP: 0x000000ED,(0x889AB030, 0xC0000304,0x00000000, 0x00000000).

What am I doing wrong?

Somebody please help me. I've been wrestling with trying to get the drivers recognized at setup so I can install the VIA Raid drivers necessary to install windows on my SATA drives.

Thanx

Jim

Please bear in mind i am a complete computer novice and am tring to install Windows server 2003 std edition on a Dell Vostro 430. The computer has two Sata drives in it setup up as a Raid 1 system.

I have understood quite a bit of this thread regarding editing the txtsetup.sif file etc and have used the nLite sotware to create the disc but am still having problems.

Can anybody please help
