Yesterday I tried to integrate the nForce SataRaid drivers into Windows XP x64 by using the new version of nLite Beta6.

The first test was made without any "handmade changes", the second by using the same method I have described for the 32-Bit version of Windows XP.

Both installations were stopped by an error message at the end of the Textmode part.

Details can be seen here:

Nuhi already knows about these findings.

Maybe he can find a solution for this issue.

If anybody succeeded using nLite Beta6 with XP x64, please report here.

Fernando,

This method worked flawlessly on my system. I used version 6.66 drivers and using your method, I had no issues with looping restarts, BSODs, or anything else. This was on an Asus A8NSLI-Premium.

Thanks for working it out! :thumbup

First of all:

http://mnetcs.com/pers/files/nlite1.0b4i.exe

Please do not link to this outside of this forum or I'll just remove it and ban the various IPs involved....

secondly:

I've just tried this method using the latest nForce drivers from the Nvidia website. The IDE folder contained different files compared to the ones mentioned at the beggining of this thread.

..In short it finished teh installer, goes to the first book and get stuck in a restart loop :(

Anyone had any experience with the latest versions? (of both Nlite and nForce)

Thank you very much for this Downloadlink, because a lot of people asked me already for this file.

1. Do you mean, that you have files like NVATABUS.XXX instead of NVATAX64.XXX and NVRAID.XXX instead of NVRDX64.XXX? Then you have either wrong (32-Bit) or old (not native 64-Bit) driver packages.

2. nLite Beta5 did not work for me for successfull integration of the nVRaid drivers, nLite Beta6 does not work at all with Windows XP x64.

3. I tried a lot of driver versions, they were all working with nLite Beta4 and the "handmade" changes described in post 1 of this thread.

The best nForce SataRaid drivers for me (nForce4 chipset) are actually the ones from the chipset package 6.66.

Do you have a link to the drivers you used?

Oh i'm no NF3 tho

What do you mean with these words? I don't really understand.

If you have a mainboard with an nForce3 chipset, you can use the 64-bit nForce chipset package 6.25:

If you have a mainboard with an nForce4 chipset, you can use the v. 6.66

Hi mate, yeah this is the copy I already had. It contains the nvata.inf files opposed to the 64bit jobbies...

Any ideas?

Any thoughts?

What is your problem?

I did not really unterstand you. Please try to explain it as clear as possible (I am a German).

Then you have to take the PATARAID subfolder.
