    I used a USB floppy for motherboards without a floppy header.
    After spending a couple hours making/testing various CD's to install the ICHR8/9/10 RAID drivers in place of F6-floppy and meeting with varied results, I ordered a IBM thinkpad USB floppy for $25 bucks and it works with win xp sp2.
    I found that Intel ICH8/9/10 RAID drivers are already in genuine Dell OEM windows XP SP2 discs, just an older driver.

    These lines tell the installer where the files are going to be located

    numbers indicate root folder an the others indicate the subfolder

    so, the numbers may vary

    the number of each folder is listed at the top of the TXTSETUP.SIF file

    Keep at it. I felt the same way (and still do mostly) when I first started using MDL sorcery.:biggrin5:

    A good one but it takes so much!
    nlite works great and otherwise why not driverpacks.net?

    In the following line: "Open the sell and go to the drivers folder using "cd" command", what is a "sell" ?

    If i want to add drivers with Nlite :O how do i do or more what do i need. When people ask if I added the sata drives to the xp iso, what do they really mean? Becouse There are different drivers for asus motherboard, msi, gigabyet etc. :O I can not add all of them.

    The SATA drivers are chipset dependant, not manufacturer dependant. You can have an Asus and a MSI motherboard with the same chipset and they will be happy to utilize the same driver.

    Follow the driverpacks route.
