Installing XP Pro 64-bit

By Daz'n'Ash ·
I have tried to install Windows XP Professional 64-bit (evaluation) and having downloaded the 64-bit drivers for the sata raid (MSI K8T Neo) to a floppy disk and pressing F6 to use the drivers, I get the following message ...
File\RAID\winxp\viamraid.sys caused an unexpected error (1 at line 2283 in d:\srvidx01\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c.

What does this mean and how do I resolve it?
(and where is the any key?)j/k

Sounds like a bug in the device driver. Inform the developers and wait for a new update. Using PATA HD instead may be your only option at present.
Any key means 'press a least one key on the keyboard' e.g. Enter,space, a,b,c,etc

I was joking about the "any key"

I found the any key.... its underneath the keyboard! LOL ok

First update your bios to the latest and greatest. Then install the drivers for the sata controller.

The drivers I was able to find for the bios and sata are located here.

Thanks for trying, but it didn't work. I already have the latest BIOS updates installed. I still get the error message. Any other ideas you have, please try again.

I wouldn't know what else to do because those are the steps taken ordinarily. Obviously the driver and 64-bit evaluation OS are having some communication problems. Since you have downloaded the latest driver and bios for your motherboard and if all your hardware is working properly I am at a loss. I don't see any other solution but to wait for an update on the win 64-bit eval OS or an update on the driver.

Good luck!
