I'm trying to slipstream a Sata .exe driver into XP folder using nLite, nLite only wants to see .INF files - it will not transfer the .exe file.... so  do I just drop the .exe Sata driver in the 'slipstream' folder?

 

I had no problems streaming Sp3 into the XP previously.   I was hoping do a new build, XP 32 bit being a must have for my work purposes - no gaming, no videos.

 

TBH, I was thinking of a A6-5400 APU and a Gigabyte GA-F2A88-D3H mobo - this doesn't have a floppy as so many people seem to recommend to use at the F6 option when installing.

 

Anyone could throw any light, thanks. Dave.

You cannot drop an exe file for the SATA drive in nlite. You need the inf and the Txtsetup.oem file also. 

 

The file is here. This is for XP 32bit. It's a self extracting exe file. If you have winrar or 7zip you can extract the contents. Your files are in the AHCI folder.

Ha, arrrrgh, I've already got it.... I've got to unpack it to get the gubbins, which I wasn't doing. I'll give it a try. Sorry about the editing, thanks

Sorted, thanks to JohnC_21 for your time and help.  I never thought of unpacking.

Regards, Dave.
