Made it to installing the RAID drivers during Windows setup but I got this error: Cannot copy iaStor.sys
After some Googleing I've found it may be the files are unreadable on the floppy due to numerous reasons. Do I have any alternatives?

I got the drivers from this page: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/servic...ID=en-gb0000003
2nd page: On-Board RAID IMSM 32Bit Driver

Chipset: ICH7R

It self extracts to a floppy. When I try to extract it to a floppy I keep getting address errors. I tried on another machine, same problem. I can add any other files just fine via drag and drop.

Please help!


Update: I may have fixed the problem myself. Most having the same issue when skipping the iaStor.sys file it copies the rest files, restarts, hits a blue screen and fails to begin installing Windows.

Alternatively, I did a bit of research and found this: http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
You can copy your Windows installation there and inject the drivers you need just be sure to select the right one(s). Windows is currently installing for me so unless something freaky happens I should be square. Hope this helps anyone else with this problem.

Did you extract the file to your Desktop - or did you just run it from the Windows Explorer window when you double clicked on it?

I'd expect that the floppy drive installer wouldn't work from within the zip archive - so you'd have to extract it and then try it.

nlite should work also - but you'll have to extract the drivers in order to load them into the nlite installation.

The exe was some sort of batch file that would only extract to a floppy. What I did was used nlite and the floppy that came with the motherboard and inserted it into the installation. Made a new XP CD and it installed without even asking for the floppy.

I'm glad it worked for you - but I'd check Device Manager to see if all is OK. I've had this happen and it turned out the mobo had some SATA capabilities, but I still had occasional glitches. Installing the drivers from the floppy cured them.
