Hello to the forum.
I need an help.
I have a new PC that has as configuration three hard drives in Raid 5
and as MB an ASUS P8Z68V-LE
The PC does'nt have any Floppy Drive.
I have installed on Drive C, Windows 7 at 64 Bit.
I want to install in Dual Boot on Drive D,Windows XP.
The problem is when i boot from the Windos XP CD, in the moment it switches from the Blue screen, when it loads all the files, to the black screen, and back to the
Blue screen with the Installation Menu, i get the error Blue Screen and cannot go trough.
As how i said before, i do not have the Floppy drive to load the Raid or Sata Drives
I have made a Windows XP cd Installation with the Drivers inside with the nLite
software. Now i can start installing the Windows XP but at the first boot of
the installation, i get again the blue screen.
Please where am i missing?
What to do correctly?
Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

You may have an insurmountable problem with the RAID5 since the BSOD occurs before and after slipstreaming.

Have you used XP SP3 installer and correctly slipstreamed the correct SATA driver? The problem could be bad slipstream, driver or burn.

May I suggest trying a free virtual software like XP Mode, Virtual Player, VMWare or Virtual Box to run XP from with Windows 7. It is a lot less trouble.

Thanks for the reply.
I have made the Windows XP SP2 as suggested in the guide.
Yes i Made the SATA drivers slipstreaming After have copied the drivers
Folder called it Drivers and paste it in the WinXP Image folder
Before Burning it.
To avoid drivers mistake, with nLite i have
Selected all of them.
Where am i mistaken.
Unfortunately the programm that i have to use
under XP does not install under virtualitation
Any other help?
Thanks

Sometimes too many drivers inserted will cause problems. Try to limit the slipstream to SATA, IDE and AHCI drivers. If you need to determine which, google them. It may also be detailed in the chipset's ReadMe file.

The latest SATA driver for XP is there on the Downloads webpage: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P8Z68-V LE

Once you extract the files from the download, did you browse to Drivers and choose iastor.sys? Nlite should see and pick it up.
