Ghost 9 boot CD and SATA drives
Apr 10th, 2005 at 10:35pm
 
When I boot to the CD I need to press F6 to add SATA drivers from a floppy. Does anyone know how to edit the CD so that a floppy isn't needed to load these drivers? I've seen articles on how to do this with the WinXP install CD, but not for Ghost 9.

It's no big deal, but what does one do on computers without a floppy drive?

I found an answer today. I've been looking for a long time.

http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t43212.html

This page gave me the idea and it worked.



I have an Intel 82801FR SATA AHCI controller. I edited the txtsetup.sif to the following

[SCSI]
iaStor = "Intel® 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop ICH6R)"

[SourceDisksFiles]
iastor.sys = 1,,,,,,3_,4,1

[HardwareIdsDatabase]
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2652&CC_0106 = "iaStor"

[SCSI.load]
iaStor = iastor.sys,4


I also had to replace iastor.inf and iastor.sys with the most recent files.

Now I can see my HD's from the Ghost 9 Recovery Environment without having to Press F6 and insert a floppy.

I hope NightOwl can help out with edits for other controllers. I'm intellectually stretched at present.
