    SATA drives in laptops and RIS not working

    I have some Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 laptops which have SATA drives. I have come to copy a RIS image over to them and it complains there is no hard drive found. I know there is as it boots fron HD if i want it to . I have checked Toshiba support and there is a storage manager driver but the Toshiba site is as slow as hell at the moment.


    Do any of you have to add SATA driver to yur RIS images the way yiou sometimes have to add odd NIC drivers.


    Can someone give advice help on this please?

    Re: SATA drives in laptops and RIS not working

    Because the disk controller is needed at the very start in the text mode portion of the setup it is a little more involved to add. The Microsoft documentation is here http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true

    There is a step by step for modding a cd which I believe is the same here http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.c...id=1703&page=5

    Re: SATA drives in laptops and RIS not working

    Just got it working.


    Followed the instructions from one of the Toshiba Forums


    Info below,



    the Sat Pro A200 has the Intel AHCI-Controller build in. This is not
    included in Windows XP. You will get an 0x0000007B bluescreen that shows
    that XP cannot identify the controller and has no driver for it.
    Here is a short description how to add this driver to your RIS installation:

    1. Copy all single files from the Intel Storage Manager ICH-8M 32-Bit
    Floppy to your $oem$\Textmode directory.
    If this directory exists you have to modify your existing txtsetup.oem
    file and append/extract the AHCI driver from the txtsetup.oem file of the
    F6 floppy to it (don't overwrite the txtsetup.oem file in this case!).
    If this directory doesn't exists you can use the provided txtsetup.oem
    file numodified.
    Download the Storage Manager F6 Floppy here:
    http://support.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-f...0827133046.zip

    2. Edit your Winnt.sif file (or what ever you named your answer file) and
    append or edit the following sections:

    MassStorageDrivers
    "Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH8M-E/M)" = oem

    OEMBootFiles
    iaahci.cat
    iaahci.inf
    iastor.cat
    iastor.inf
    iastor.sys
    license.txt
    readme.txt
    txtsetup.oem
