Which SATA driver for Amilo Xi 2428  Topic is solved

Postby snowy » Thu Sep 20, 2007 6:30 am

Hello everyone

I spent 4 hours trying out all the sata drivers on the CD the Amilo comes with for installing Windows XP Professional SP2 but none of them worked. He could load some of the drivers but couldn't find a HDD later on.
I am wondering if someone got it working to install Windows XP on it and which driver to take!

I am thanking you already in advance. I desperately need Windows XP installed. Any hint can be really helpful.

Did you try the Intel or VIA drivers? (I'm not sure if FSC uses a VIA raid controller again.)

yes please do

i spent along time yesterday trying to configure dual boot on my Xi 2528

As i do not have a Fdd I have been creating a custom xp install using Nlite and adding in the sata drivers that came on the FSC support / drivers disk

when XP is installing, during the textmode part of the install i see it copy over the drivers i added to the install disk but then it fails to see any hard disks.

I have just updated the FAQs: topic,26,-Installation-of-Windows-XP-Home-Pro-PE-FAQs.html
The right drivers can be found here: topic,26,-Installation-of-Windows-XP-Home-Pro-PE-FAQs.html#48
For your notebook, it is the Intel driver. Download it here: http://www.amilo-forum.de/topic,11948,- ... tml#138818
