Ok I have the f6flyp3289.zip and I have unzipped the files.
I have run nlite and created a folder on my desktop (XPR) to which nlite has copied the WinXP master CD. I have created a folder in the XPR folder, and have included both the iastor.inf and iastor.sys in a folder in that directory called 'microstar'. When nlite asks me to point to the .inf file, I point it to that one and it runs and burns the CD.
Was that correct to do it that way, or should I have copied the entire contents of the F6 floppy zip file to the folder?
Booting from the new nlite Windows CD still produces a STOP error. This is getting really frustrating; is it really possible to actually run a 32-bit and a 64-bit OS on the same machine?
One other thing is that I have removed the Intel IMSM system from my machine using Add/Remove Programs. The IMSM system will now no longer install from the apps CD that came with the computer. I removed it because I wanted to simplify the problem: IMSM is as far as I know a RAID system so I wanted to remove the necessity for an XP RAID driver. If I have sinned then please forgive me
