Thank you very much for your several posts.
I know, that you really want to help us all, but, I'm sorry to say, your posts are a little bit confusing for me.
Once you wrote this:
I first put nvatabus.inf into sataraid folder and integrated sataraid folder and it worked perfectly just like that. Didn't have to do anything extra.
Then you wrote this:
I know that I removed with nLite all IDE drivers such as Intel, VIA, etc. I also removed RAID/SATA drivers.
Within the next post you propose this:
Now copy nvata.inf AND nvata.sys from "sata_ide" folder into "sataraid" folder.
Your next idea:
You could try just putting the "raidtool" folder into sataraid along with nvatabus.inf.
And this was your last recommendation:
This should work for you fernando.
Go into the "pataraid" folder and then copy "nvatabus.inf".
Go to "sataraid" folder and paste that file in.
Copy the entire "raidtool" folder INSIDE the "sataraid" folder.
If you have done this correctly this is what you should see.
You should not select the oem preinstall option.
At least I decided to do exactly, what you recommended within your last post.
Result: Endless reboots!
Dale, please think about the following:
1. There is no need to help me, but others. I don't have any problem integrating nForce SataRaid drivers into a bootable Windows XP CD
(see Post Nr. 1 within this thread). What I am trying, is to search for an easy method for those people, who had no success with the full integration of these drivers by nLite.
2. Your message, that the integration of nVRaid drivers is fully supported by nLite Beta6, is definitely wrong
. Fully supported means, that it can be successfully used by all users with nVRaid systems and no special preparations of the files/drivers/packages are necessary. Even you
have done some "handmade" changes or preparations of the driver folders and special nLite settings (although you do not know exactly which ones).
3. If there really would be a need for the raidtool folder within the SATARAID folder, no user with an nForce SataRaid system could install XP via F6/floppy method
(not enough space on the floppy).
4. The main problems for users with nVRaid systems are resolved, when they want to install Windows XP. The new version of nLite (Beta6) makes it very easy to integrate the awfull NVIDIA drivers into the 32-bit OS. But there is still a lot to do for users, who want to integrate the native 64-bit drivers into an 64-bit OS. Please help us to find an easy solution for Windows XP x64!
