Alright thanks with that. Do you want to continue? Because I'm falling sleepy. I can stay up, but I probably won't wake up for tomorrow. So we continue tomorrow then?

I found out something just now. Nlite is giving me a warning if I slipstream drivers from different bits, there would be a installation error. So right now, I'm trying to identify which one is for which.

And they're all 32-bit -_-. I checked them on the Gateway website, and they're all 32-bit. I'm not sure to trust that, because one of the folders says something like 'DRIVERS-x64' or something similiar.

Go back and find the folder with 64 bit and replace it.

I thought you said that tutorial you followed to make the bootable flash used XP files and not XP ISO?

This one: CompuPodia: Installing Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 from USB (GUI Tool)

Correct?

Yeah, but I did both. :P

Anyways, I think I'm supposed to be in the part where I start installing. I checked this morning on tutorials, and I think I have to do something with F6.

With 32 bit if it's there.

Which driver was it?

If it's not the storage controller then it can be found after install.

Eh, I think I'll ignore that for now, and then if an error appears about that being 64-bit, then I'll pull it out. Just, Gateway says it's 32-bit.
