A8V Deluxe + Windows XP x64

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need to know where to go to get the drivers for the F6 part of the windows xp setup, if I don't have the drivers, it will not recognize my SATA hard drives, and thats what I need it to do. Does anyone know where to find the drivers on the a8v deluxe cd?

well, i found the first set of drivers.. Now I need the second. Once I press F6, i choose the driver I want, I get to choose the actual DRIVE that I want, and it setus up everything, I can even format the drive. After I do all of that, it does one last step before starting the installation and asks for "VIA RAID Combo Driver Diskette".

WHere do I find this?

On your ASUS CD there should be a folder called "DRIVERS" and in that folder, one called "SATA" (I'm going off memory here). Inside the "SATA" folder should be a file called textsetup.oem (or oemsetup.txt) along with a few other folders. Drag a box around all the folders including the txtsetup file and copy that to a floppy. WinXP should be able to find the file its looking for on the floppy.

I recommend checking for the XP64 drivers at Asus. Your CD may not have the 64s on it depending on how early the production was.
