O.K. - nearly there, however the 'HowTo' in this link (courtesy of Theo):\n\n [URL]http://maximumpc.com/2005/01/how_to_slipstre.html[/URL]\n\nin Step 3. Says:\n\n Open the folder to which you copied your Windows XP CD (C:\xpsetupcd) and\ncreate a subfolder called $OEM$. Then, create a subfolder of $OEM$ called </body>\nand a subfolder of </body> called drivers. The resulting path should be\nC:\xpsetupcd\$OEM$\</body>\drivers.\n\nLater, in step 5, this is referenced as:\n\nYou'll need to customize the OemPnPDriversPath line by entering the path to\nthe INF file for your RAID/SATA driver (for instance if your drivers are in\nC:\xpsetupcd\i386\$OEM$\</body>\drivers\RAID use:\nOemPnPDriversPath=drivers\RAID\FastTrack\WinXP).\n\nI tend to think the second version should be correct - any comments?\n\n\n\nAlso, the text only deals with the driver consisting of only 'one' SYS\nfile - mine has two, and as I recall, both where listed as (Required) when I\ninstalled the last time. The text also only deals with one instance of the\nCPI/VEN_ description, while making a note about inserting all instances\n(which I did). There are five - does this mean that I should insert those\nfive ID's twice, each for the two SYS files?\n\nI hope someone has this in fresh memory - but for these minor\ninconsistencies, I am ready to burn!\n\n\n\nTony. . .
