Use nlite to slipstream the driver into the XP install. That is the only way i can think of to do what you need to do.

Correct me if im wrong but i read somewhere on the web ages ago, that you would only need to setup the raid if you had 2 or sata drives

Yes that is correct. RAID does require at least 2 hard drives.

I had that issue on a computer that I built for a rapper last week. for some reason, the sound card wouldn't act right in the bottom slot. moving it solved the problem.

I had the same issue another time and it was because I had 4 sata dvd burners hooked up at once and it was causing an irql conflict (this was never an issue with ide drives in the same setup) during install. I disconnected 3 of them, install xp then hooked them back up

take out extraneous stuff like the sound card
in bios:
disable usb
disable serial and parallel
set drive to IDE mode
disable secondaray sata if any
disable lan

retry

then when/if it works you can re-enable

that has nothing to do with this. sata is raid. xp doesn't recognize most raid setups.

I had missed the second page for some reason
