I've really tried to solve this one - but am getting nowhere. BartPE creates a Bootable USB drive that works on my HP 5101 BUT I cannot see the local hard drive.
My systems all run WinXP-SP3 and that's what I'm using for the build.
My process is: Run PE Builder, InfoCacheBuild, Bootable USB-Drive Utility
The only error I get is during PE Builder when I get a warning about WinXP being an OEM version.
I've added the following (singly and in different combinations):
1) Using the directions on this forum (#21226) "Addings Drivers to BartPE, SATA" - I downloaded and added the BTS Driverpack for Mass Storage 10.06, followed all the directions and the The 2 Driverpacks showed up correctly in the Plugins list (MassStorgae set to YES and Base set to NO).
-That didn't work
2) Added the drivers from the HP Mini using SmartDriverBackup. The 2 drivers that showed as class='hdc' were:
Intel® 82801G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 27DF - ver. 18.104.22.1681
Intel® ICH7M_MDH SATA AHCI Controller - ver 22.214.171.1245
I created subdirectories in \pebuilder3110a\drivers\SCSIAdapter with short (no spaces) names and copied the driver files there. Modified the inf files in the 2 directories as described in this forum.
-That didn't work
Once running the device manager in BartPE shows two IDE Channels (Pri & Sec) and IDE Controller with a yellow Question Mark under 'Other Devices', also under 'Non-pnp Drivers', PartMgr has a yellow exclamation point.
What else can I report to help with troubleshooting?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: I just figured out - if I go into the CMOS and set "SATA Native Mode" to Disable, then BartPE can see the hard drive fine.
1) Is it safe to work on the HD in this mode?
2) I'd still like to solve the original problem as it would make the BartPE more usable for me.
