SATA AHCI drivers not showing up F6 XP install driver list

Thank you in advance for any help.

I'm trying to install AHCI and windows XP on a new system. Motherboard: GA-EP45-UD3R

I have:
1. Set AHCI in bios
2. created a floppy which is supposed to contain both the SATA RAID and SATA AHCI drivers (ive done this 3 different times. downloaded the files from gigabyte, downloaded them from intel-the "32bit floppy disk utility" or whatever, and ran an exe on the motherboard cd-rom that copies the drivers to the floppy. The files on the floppy are iaahci.cat, iaAHCI.inf, iastor,cat, iastor.inf, Iastor.sys, TXTSETUP.OEM. )
3. Everytime time, after I start installing XP and press F6 to get to a list of drivers, my list only has 4 choices, all of which are "SATA RAID" drivers, but the list is also supposed to have AHCI drivers on that list, and it doesn't have any.

  1. Hello,


    if you look at the TXTSETUP.OEM file, you'll see all the drivers included

    In fact, the F6 DOs-mode screen cannot display more than 4 or 5 ligns, and it show only the last SATA RAID drivers.

    The solution : Up arrow to scroll to select the correct SATA AHCI drivers :)

    Me too I lost some time to figure it :)

    Hope this help
