Mother board: D965WH
I dont have floppy drive. I need to install Intel RAID driver during OS
I downloaded the latest driver which is listed in Intel site.
Extracted the drive file using – A -A -P option.
I slipstreamed Windows XP SP2 on a base Windows XP. Then I used tool to
integrate RAID Driver to the XP + SP2.
Tools tried: nLite, SaRa-I v1_5.exe (some russian or french tool got it from
Then I created bootable CD using Nero.
I did the BIOS setup correctly for RAID.

Can somebody help me to resolve this problem?
(Without integrating the driver, changing the BIOS to normal IDE for hard
drive, I am able to install Win XP + SP2 successfully)
