Windows 7: Standalone Sweeper Woe

Standalone Sweeper Woe

I have a 32bit XP (SP3) system that badly needs to be scanned offline.
Four h/ds on an old 3Ware raid0 card (Escalade DiskSwitch 5400) are making it difficult.
The 2k drivers work great for XP. (There are none newer.)

When I built the bootable cd, there was no option to add the drivers.
When SSS boots up, it does not find the raid array, nor does it give me an F6 option to install the raid drivers. I see that SSS is compatible with XP.

Any workaround ideas?

Because both MS's SSS and the Kaspersky rescue disks do not load drivers for 3Ware or Silicon Image raids (both my systems), I decided to try the offerings of the Avira, AVG, and F-Secure rescue cd's.
To my delight, they loaded drivers for either system and performed their cleanup tasks well.
Curious that three companies can figure out how to deal with raid setups, and two can't.
