Slipstreaming VIA SerialATA Drivers
Posted 04 December 2005 - 07:48 AM
Now it recognized my disk, so thats not a problem.
Is there something that I need more than just the .sy_ files?
Thanks a lot otherwise! Atleast it put me ONE step ahead of what I was before

To be more precise the file in question is VIAMRAID.SYS and related INF and TXTMODE files:
1) I've created a $OEM$/$1/sata/ directory tree inside the source folder
2) copied the contents of the sata diskette (or the DRVDSK from the hypherion540 folder from Viaarena) in the sata folder (see point 1)
3) copied the VIAMRAID.SYS into the I386 directory
4) Once in nLite, when in the Drivers panel, I've selected the driver (in Txtmode)
found the info browsing the net and got not a clue how it works but who cares...
No need to press any F6 key anymore.
By the way, what are these viasraid.sy_ and viapdsk.sy_ for?
The post is a couple of years old, I guess those drivers have been replaced by VIAMRAID.SYS by now. Or I am missing something?
How many drivers are required by the Via8237 chipset?
There are other INF files relative to VIAAGP, VIAMACH, and VIAUSB but they aren't installed even by a proper install from windows...apparently Hypherion itself choose not to install them because they aren't required or because those provided by windows are newer (e.g. agp).
My knowledge is very approximate...I'd like to know a bit more.
any reply appreciated.

Followed instructions as listed and worked no problem!
This is for a Soyo KT600 Dragon Plus (via kt600 chipset). Sata driver = Silicon Image 3112.
Nope, no names needed to be changed to match sil3112, just followed the instructions.
I am very happy .

I tried creating a bootable cd and after a few seconds I get the error
"INF error TXTSETUP.SIF is missing or corupt".
I used Nlite to create the image and the data in each section of the file
Does anyone know what the problem might be?
Thanks and best regards!

Anyways, it was 2 raptors trying to boot from a raid 0, and for some reason beforehand I couldnt get working for the life of me because of random stuff like not having a floppy drive or when i went out to buy a floppy drive it would just sit there unable to read any disk in it. The board was an Ecs PT890T-A v1.0 8237 south controller. Just did what he said in the 1st post, and I simply just added viamraid.sys in the i386 folder as an addition just incase, I loaded the oem text setup as THE only driver I in winlite. I was trying to do this for weeks before hand though just trying to teach myself (through more trial and error than research obviously =p) but ya Millan aka Gdragon you made this alot easier than everyone else was making it out to be, and Thank You very much for the post, even though it was like a few years ago, it still works with sp3 =p
