    I need the device ID for the SATA controller running in AHCI mode.

    Please change the SATA to AHCI mode in BIOS, load Win10 PE and save another report.

    Success on G3930 + GA-H110-D3A + G210 + WD SN520

    But onboard Lan, Internal Graphics(&HDMI Audio) not works

    Backported generic driver (NVMe&AHCI) work well but it not report SMART information

    Integrate and use the AMD AHCI driver 1.2.1.402 found in the first post.

    Without device IDs can't help you.
    No driver for internal graphics, you need a XP compatible AMD or NVIDIA card.

    It's a known issue, Sometimes, SMART atributes from first device can be read.

    In facts, no.
    On this motherboard, I have restored a disk image with Sysprep, the moded acpi.sys file and 6 GB of drivers (from driverpacks) injected into it.
    The AMD USB 3.0 driver is not installed during setup.
    On laptops as Dell Vostro 3350 or 3550 or the motherboard BIOSTAR A68N-2100, this driver is installed during setup.
    Something doesn't match for XP. o_O

    Hello,

    I'm doing some preliminary tests with your drivers and Sysprep.

    The slipstream of the following drivers is a success :

    amd_sata.sys
    amd_xata.sys
    iaStorA.sys
    iaStorF.sys
    storahci.sys
    stornvme.sys
    secnvme.sys
    secnvmeF.sys

    The files are copied and installed in textmode BUT the following files are not copied and installed :

    storport.sys
    storpor8.sys

    Do you know how to install these files manually ? :confused:
    Just by copying the files in the folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers ?

    Open TXTSETUP.SIF, search for wmilib.sys and paste the following lines:
    storport.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,0,0,,1,4
    storpor8.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,0,0,,1,4

    For DOSNET.INF, search for d1,wmilib.sys and paste the following lines:
    d1,storport.sys
    d1,storpor8.sys

    Please try the AHCI driver 1.2.1.402 again, after doing the changes above.

    That file is copied only after you connect na UASP compatible device, such an external USB 3.x hard disk.

    Use the one that works (better) on your system.

    I'm not using the ISO of Windows XP...

    XP is already installed and I only use disk images of XP ready to use with full of software and stuff.

    Do you have a REG file that reproduce these changes ?

    I tried to integrate the SATA drive at the Text mode setup but i run into the error "The file storahci.sys could not be found", what could i have done wrong?
    Your previous SATA driver worked without a problem. Here are my settings:

    DOSNET.INF
    [FloppyFiles.1]
    d1,storahci.sys
    d1,storpor8.sys
    d1,storport.sys
    [Files]
    d1,storahci.inf
    d1,storahci.sys
    d1,storpor8.sys
    d1,storport.sys

    TXTSETUP.SIF
    [SourceDisksFiles]
    storport.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,0,0,,1,4
    [SourceDisksFiles.x86]
    storahci.inf = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0
    storahci.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1,,,1,4
    storpor8.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1,,,1,4
    [HardwareIdsDatabase]
    "PCI\CC_010601 = "storahci"
    [SCSI.Load]
    storahci = storahci.sys,4
    [FileFlags]
    storahci.sys = 16
    storpor8.sys = 16
    storport.sys = 16
    [SCSI]
    storahci = "Standard SATA/AHCI Controller"

    If I undestand well, storport.sys must start by itself at boot of XP ?

    The storport.sys file only needs to be placed in the "C:\windows\system32\drivers" folder.

    Hi, looking to build a dedicated XP machine, does the NVMe driver allow us to install/boot from an NVMe or just read it within XP?

    if you integrate the storport.sys prerequisite to the medium(in txtsetup.sif and dosnet.inf), prep a nicely-done TXTSETUP.OEM file for the nvme driver + integrate the driver via nlite (or directly integrate it too in aforementioned txtsetup and dosnet files as an alternative), the text setup should use the driver during the disk-picking/partitioning/formatting part, allowing you to install XP on the drive.

    I'm not used to do this, but I believe it should work, just make sure to copy storport.sys and amd_sata.sys to \Windows\System32\Drivers folder.
    Save the text below in a .reg file and import it, then change SATA mode in BIOS to AHCI.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\amdsata]
