Problems GA-7VAXP Bios 14 Fastrak133lite 20276 ATA Raid in..

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.gigabyte (More info?)

I am having a problem getting Striped Raid 0
drivers loaded during the Windows XP install
"F6 to load drivers" phase. The bios will build
the array no problem. When Installing I get to
"F6" fine.

When I am given the load drivers screen my only
choice there is "S" for select (there is no "O" for other).

I then insert my driver disk, which has the only the three
files I can find for loading the Fasttrak133 Lite ATA
Raid Driver:

fasttrak.cat
fasttrak.inf
fasttrak.sys

The XP installer then comes back and says it needs
file "txtsetup.oem" and errors. I have searched far and
wide for "txtsetup.oem" for the Fastrak133lite 20276
chipset and even tried to write my own (didn't work)
with no luck.

Has anyone here had sucess installing these drivers
during setup? How was it done and/or where can I get
the "txtsetup.oem" file Windows XP is crying for. Is there
any other way to build a striped raid 0 array on this
motherboard? I can see where building a mirror security
drive couold be done from within the OS, but it appears to
me a performance array needs to be inialized during the OS
setup..

Thanks in advance for any tips. Strip the nospam off
to reply directly via mail.

    The txtsetup.oem is included with the latest 20276 RAID drivers available
    from the Gigabyte website.
    Should also be in all other driver sets, otherwise you wouldn't be able to
    install........
    Will be one directory level up from the WinXP driver's directory.

    AFAIK, when you make up the driver disk, the root directory should contain
    the following files:

    FASTTRAK.
    README.TXT
    TXTSETUP.OEM

    Then create a WINXP directory that contains the following files:

    FASTTRAK.INF
    FASTTRAK.SYS
    FASTTRAK.CAT

    The files should already be in a similar layout in the driver set.
