It fails AFTER setup has finished (When the gui mode install completes and restarts to begin windows)
It hangs on loading acpitabl.dat, which after doing a lot of googling seems to be caused by loading an incorrect, corrupt or wrong driver set.
Actually I do have a question that isnt clear in your guide.
Yes I am 100% sure using the 6.66 64bit drivers.
I have the sata/pata folders as descrtibed.
However there is no nvatax64.inf file int he sataraid folder, and there are two copies of the nvatax64.sys folder.
Which do I use, and do I put them all in the same single OEMDIR directory?
1. It is clear, that there is no NVATAX64.INF file in your SATARAID subfolder. That is why you have to take this file from the PATARAID subfolder to put in into the OEMDIR directory.
2. I don't believe, that you have 2 NVATAX64.SYS folders. What you certainly mean is, that you have such a file in both subfolders SATARAID and PATARAID. These 2 files are totally identical.
3. I believe, that your problem has nothing to do with the integration of the Sata Raid drivers, but with the GART drivers. As you should know, systems with nForce3 chipset need a GART driver. This driver is missing in the NVIDIA chipset package 6.66, because it was designed for nForce4 chipsets, which do not need any GART drivers.
My tip for you: Integrate the Sata Raid drivers with nLite 1.0 b4 as textmode drivers and the SMBus drivers from the package 6.66, but integrate additionally the GART drivers from another 64-bit chipset package (for example 6.25).
