Stand by. Need to see which chipset you have.

Those are the storage controllers. WOuld be AHCI, not RAID

You figure it out yet?
And I don't know what to do here from then on. Want me to stop here, and pickup from here tomorrow?

There are two chipsets given on product specs page:

Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset (DDR2 400/533/667 MHz)
Mobile Intel® 82801GBM Chipset

Run this quick audit and see what chipset is in there: Attachment 41860

Did any disks come with that netbook? Was XP originally on it?
No disks came in the netbook. And Windows 7 was originally on it.

Look in the Device Manager and see the exact name of Storage Controller

It will be that one you want to select in Nlite screen you sent me above.

Good. You see that in Nlite list to choose from?

That's what was causing the bluescreen. It needed that driver, according to the Stop codes. Too modern to be in the XP installer.

You have any problem with the other chipset drivers, for your main board? There should be a BelArc listing for exact chipset of the two shown for your model in my posts above.

There were two downloads for Chipsets, one the storage controller and other mainboard.

I found it. Now I hope to see that I get everything to work in a bit then.
Good thing I downloaded everything then.

There are two modes though, Regular something and text something. It's selected by default text. Do I leave it so?

Ok, I'm supposed to leave it in Textmode.
Is knowing the chipset at the moment important? That question was for a post a while ago. Besides, I ctrl + f and I find no mobo.

Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset (DDR2 400/533/667 MHz) is your graphics.

Mobile Intel® 82801GBM Chipset is your mobo chipset.

Load the other chipset drivers next so we can get them sorted.

You wanna wait til tomorrow?
