@fraz:
If you want to get Windows XP installed, the question is not, which is the best Intel RST driver, but which one will be installable/working with this OS.
The latest Intel RST driver, which supports Windows XP, is the v11.2.0.1006 one.

Hello Fernando,
OK, these are the successes so far with XP32 / XP64 / SRV_2003_32_&64

X99_chipset_AsRock_X99_OC_F_3.1___IRST_floppy_14.8.0.1042__+_Fernando_Universal_11.2.0.1006_text_mode_ __8D02
Z97_chipset_MSI_Z97_G43__________IRST_floppy_14.8.0.1042___+_Fernando_Universal_11.2.0.1006_text_mode_ __8C82

x79_chipset_Asus_R_IV_E___________IRST_floppy_11.1.0.1006___+_Fernando_Universal_11.2.0.1006_text_mode_ __1D02 ___later_i_learned_11.2.0.1006_could have been used for IRST_floppy
B85_chipset_Asus_B85 Pro Gamer____IRST_floppy_14.8.0.1042___+_Fernando_Universal_11.2.0.1006_text_mode_ ___8C02
7_series_unknown_X79_T___________IRST_floppy_11.1.0.1006___+_Fernando_Universal_11.2.0.1006_text_mode_ ___1E02 ___later_i_learned_11.2.0.1006_could have been used for IRST_floppy

All of the above resulted in success and Snappy Driver was used to assist in the installation of drivers__

Yesterday I tried the MSI_Z170_A_GAMING M3__&_Gigabyte_H170_D3HP_and no matter what I tried XP64 would not install__and failed before the installation began with a BSOD. Which ever IRST floppy I tried it would not work. Possibly I thought that an older BIOS may get better results.

Fernando, I did read that you installed XP , was this 32 bit or 64 bit? - On AsRock_Z170_Professional_Gaming-i7__how did you deal with the Intel USB 3.0 on the Z170 chipset? - Thanks

I've got enough options now for XP now but some comment may be helpful

EDIT__answer_to_Fernando "How did you get two different text mode drivers working?"

I used drivers downloaded from AsRock website__for the IRST floppy__14.8.0.1042____&__once_the updates were installed to a level__I installed the Fernando__IRST__11.2.0.1006___software console__and then__which ever chipset drivers would install_I would install__then_SNAPPY_driver__was used for the individual_"system devices" for XEON registers etc...……

The results are amazing__so I've decided to limit my XP generation installs to the "successes" mentioned above.
How I did all this I do not know__as I'm not an expert !!!

At the end of the successful installations in the device manager it would show something like "SATA AHCI CONTROLLER 8D02 added by Fernando" ___something like this.
With everything I've mentioned above with the successes the only way I can describe the driver installations is "a full house" - And the only discrepancy is where there would be an Intel USB 3.0 hub & XHCI, it would say "Intel Device" only.
So I think with following the tutorials and using Snappy Driver + some of my own drivers that work (some won't)__better results will not be possible.
I tried the same approach on Z170_MSI_GAMING M3 and it did not work ___I could not find an IRST floppy driver that would work - The closest I got was the IA Store is corrupted using an RSTe driver for Windows 7.
nLite software was used__and a direct burn to CD-R

EDIT by Fernando: Put your answer into a "spoiler" (to save space within this thread)

@fraz:
Thanks for your interesting feedback!
My question: How did you get 2 different textmode drivers loaded/integrated and which version was shown within the Device Manager after having completed the OS installation?
Answer to your question: I installed only Windows XP x86 and didn't try to get the USB 3.0 ports working.

#994 RE: [Guide] Integration of Intels AHCI/RAID drivers into a Windows XP/W2k3/W2k CD by YuriyCN 15.05.2020 18:33

I made a comparison of the performance of the SSD drive with the drivers v4.7.0.1117 vs v11.2.0.1006. Drivers work almost equally in speed, although the first driver displays UDMA5 mode, in another UDMA6. In addition, a nuance was found with the driver v11.2.0.1006: if a DVD drive is connected, the LED HDD activity flashes periodically (1 time per second), even when the system is idle and there is no access to either the HDD/SSD or the DVD. If you turn off the DVD, the LED not blinks.

LED activity flashes (1 Hz) - this is a bug of v11.2.0.1006 (Fernando mod) driver.

Hello,
I used nLite - and - CD-R - I found that there was a relationship between X99 & Z97 installations - eg - 14.8.0.1042 + universal 11.2.0.1006 both worked on both platforms and has not let me down yet. I did read Fernando that you had a failed Z97 install.

If you still have this board - and go to AsRock website - get hold of floppy 14.8.0.1042 https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X99%20OC...ex.asp#Download + your own universal text mode and inserted in nLite - I'm sure it may work. Then Snappy Driver after - or similar.

In the device manager after installation it shows the name of the controller added by Fernando - Then after some updates the MSM console IRST application will install and then the installation is very good - !

Some software won't install properly like "Passmark Performance Test" - CPU-Z can crash the XP installation as well - so can HW Monitor - But there is an XP install at Zone_62 with extra drivers that run better with the apps I've just mentioned - Sorry for posting off topic if I have -

@fraz:
Thanks for your interesting answers to my questions.
By the way - you may have succeeded to get XP x64 installed onto your Z170 chipset system, if you would have booted off an USB Flash Drive (and not off an Optical Drive).

Are you serious? - I may try this another time - But what about the 100 series chipset drivers - there was less support on Snappy Driver and it was very difficult - But I still do not know which floppy version to use if it was going to work - Maybe the 14.8.0.1042 - I will try again maybe.

If I remember correctly though none of the USB ports were working even when Windows 7 installed

Currently doing Server 2003 32 bit on Z97-C - Asus -

Hi, ive been trying to install XP on my Lenovo G50-80 Model 80E5.

Im usuing nlite to intergrate the driver but I get a txtseup.oem error message or iaStor.sys is corrupt or a BSOD.

Im using v11.2.0.1006 and I checked in device manager using a Hirens PE Disk and my hardware IS DEV 9C83.

Can you help?

So - finally everything is good

Before, I made a few "mistakes" :-) like:
1.) Using an old slipstream for the CF-31 But this source was originally made for CF-19 man oh man (Kopfschüttel)
2.) made a slipstream for XP - on Win 7 ! burned it on Win 7 - Microsoft told about problems, doing this under Vista !
3.) made it all on XP, but took the wrong driver!

Finally, found out - at least for me - to do it just this way:
1.) make a slipstream with nLite with the original panasonic driver (under XP - NOT Vista, or higher!)
2.) burned it with XPBurner (on DVD-RAM)
3.) Installed Win 7 Prof.
4.) Installed XP Prof.
5.) Inserted the Win 7 DVD --> repair options --> sytem repair --> Done!

5.) because of the damaged / changed boot manager - didn't need any EasyBCD ore something else!
Hundreds of posts about: you must copy files from there to here - or you must do that - and so on

At least for me - this was the easiest way i, which i never expected!
I had to do NOTHING ! exept, insert the Win 7 DVD ! Learned a lesson!

When i ever have to do it again! - I do just from 1.) to 5.) no more :-)

@Sircam:
Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum! I am sorry for my delayed reply - I haven't seen your request.
The XP Setup message "The file iaStor.sys is corrupt" indicates, that you tried to integrate or to load a 64bit driver for a 32bit OS. That does not work!
Regards
Dieter (alias Fernando)

@Ftmmsch:
It is fine, that you got the boot sector of your multi-boot system sorted and properly working, what what his this to do with Intel's AHCI/RAID drivers?

Which "panasonic driver" do you mean? According to my knowledge the Company Panasonic has never built any AHCI/RAID Controller and never compiled any AHCI/RAID driver.

Hi,

at least for my CF-19 mk2 german - XP - It's still here:

https://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/dl/docs/14043

Resp: the direct link for my CF-19:

#1002 RE: [Guide] Integration of Intels AHCI/RAID drivers into a Windows XP/W2k3/W2k CD by Ftmmsch 27.05.2020 21:07

But:

I don't know why - loading the drivers with my Floppy drive failed - maybe the drive is defective - or my USB Bios settings....
I could take achoice for the driver - but loaded on and on again - "Und täglich grüßt das Murmeltier" :-)

Therefore i needed to do it with nLite.

@Ftmmsch:
1. It is better to boot off a CD with a customized XP image (with integrated Intel AHCI driver).
2. The linked Panasonic "Floppy Disk Drive" doesn't contain a driver from Panasonic, but an old Intel AHCI driver.

#1004 RE: [Guide] Integration of Intels AHCI/RAID drivers into a Windows XP/W2k3/W2k CD by Ftmmsch 27.05.2020 21:59

OK - Abaout driver, I surtenly do NOT know as much as you do :-)

This is the driver, which panasonic told me about using it for a "clean install".

Anyway:
What i told about my easy way - without EasyBCD or moving any files:

can I consider my statement regarding the sequence and procedure as generally valid?

Or is that more of a coincidence?

I used to have a lot of work.
Now it was easy:
Win 7 on it
XP on it
Win 7 DVD in
Repair options
System repair
Bootloader OK again

Is that actually the best and easiest way?
What did I do earlier with EasyBCD, or move files from here to there via command line ...
Where it is obvious - for. for me - SO MUCH EASIER?

If it is NOT ! you may delete my post's :-) When it is "safer" for Other#s :-)

@Ftmmsch:
I don't know, what the easiest (but definitively not the safest) way is to repair the bootloader after having used the wrong OS installation order, because I neither run XP nor Win7.
The topic of this thread is how to get Intel's AHCI/RAID drivers properly integrated into a Windows XP/W2k3/W2k CD and not how to repair the boot loader.
