Still no SATA

  sorceror7374 16:51 22 Jan 2006

I've got the drivers all installed for the SATA drives in windows xp but they are listed in the device manager as 'unreadable'. When I tried to install the drivers while booting up with the XP CD I got and error message stating 'File \WinXP\fasttx2k.sys caused an unexpected error (18) at line 2108 in d:\xpsp1\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c.
Any suggestions on how to get SATA working?

What make/model are they ?

Are they attached via Motherboard or PCI Controller, im guessing but that fastx2k.sys looks like a Promise Driver.

They are Promise drivers indeed. They're all part of my Chaintech separate controller needed.

Unfortunately the latest drivers are what I've already installed.
