Raid drivers


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have read on here some where that if you save the raid files to a copy of your windows CD you dont get the blue screen of death and windows will use the the correct raid drivers rather than some it has saved on the cd.

 

My question is how do I save the raid files/folders to a copy of XP and where do I put them ????

 

Any help will with this would be great.

 

Thanks

 

Phil

It won't use its own drivers anyway if you press F6 during the textmode initialization (it will say press F6 if you need to install 3d party raid drivers).

 

I've read it works even more crappy to integrate the drivers on the CD... but if you really want: the thing you read about is most likely nLite, a piece of software to customize a windows install CD.

Integrate the RAID drivers that came with the motherboard into WinXP using nlite.

 

Don't use the latest drivers from nVidia because you will get the endless reboot problem.

 

After you get WinXP installed, then you can upgrade to the latest nVidia nForce drivers without issue.

 

This works great. I've done it with myself and three of my friends who also have LP boards.

 

The problem has to do with the new drivers not being properly signed and WinXP having issue with that during installation. I have read that you can get around this problem by creating a full unattented XP install which forces XP to install all unsigned drivers, but I have not tested it yet.
