I have had the drivers integrated into text mode for a long time now this is what I do.
My winnt.sif has
as well as
D\raid folder is located at on my CD root
In the D\raid folder I have both controler drivers files.
You must put the cabbed files
fasttx2k.sy_ and viamraid.sy_
in you i386 folder so they are copied in text mode.
In my TXTSETUP.SIF I have
[SourceDisksFiles] fasttx2k.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1 viamraid.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3376 = "fasttx2k" PCI\VEN_105A&DEV_3373 = "fasttx2k" PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149 = "viamraid" [SCSI.load] fasttx2k = fasttx2k.sys, 4 viamraid = viamraid.sys, 4 [scsi] fasttx2k = "Promise FastTrak 376/378 (tm) Controller" viamraid = "Via VT8237 Sata Raid Controller"
You must put that before the sometimes invisible marker at the end of txtsetup.sif.
Note if you use nlite you must do this after nliting it. Everytime I did this before it would crash at install.
You should see the drives attached without using F6.
I hope this helps.
Did you have a cabbed version of it in your i386 folder?
