Simple method of integrating other drivers could be found here.
The idea was inspirated by reading this topic. Interesting link too.
Big thanks to glentium and iTwins for testing, catching bugs and giving advices!
First step: preparing driver files.
Copy to hard disk all files from the floppy disk with SATA/RAID drivers that came with your motherboard.
You may also use drivers from others SATA/RAID driver packs.
Second step: preparing folder structure.
Create folder HFEXPERT in HFSLIP directory. Go inside this folder and create STORAGE subfolder in it. Place all driver binaries in this folder.
Third step: creating database file.
Download our database file*, extract it and place STORAGE.INI in STORAGE folder.
Advanced users may create their own much shorter driver database file with only two sections: [HardwareIdsDatabase] and [SCSI] using drivers TXTSETUP.OEM file (use downloaded file as an example).
*scankurban should be credited for creating and sharing the information used in it.
If HFSLIP finds any SYS files in HFEXPERT\STORAGE folder it will add four sections to TXTSETUP.SIF. That will let you use SATA/RAID support during Windows installation
Database file STORAGE.INI may not be up-to-date. If your SATA/RAID controller is not installing check if it is in the database or post the content of TXTSETUP.OEM file here so that we try to help you.
