The 1st step is identifying the devices; brand, model, device details. Then seeing if the vendor has an XP driver for the device. Once those steps are accomplished adding a plugin to support the devices should be straight forward. Don't forget to determine the driver's for the device's comtrollers. They may need XP drivers also.
Post what you find and we will help you dreate the plugin.
I am having a little trouble figuring out exactly what I need. I am currently using two Lenovo Think laptops for testing, one T400, and a T410.
My current load of Bart PE identifies the drives normally with the T400, but not with the T410. Both have the same drivers loaded as far as I can tell, however the SATA controller seems to have a later driver:
Apsx86.sys Lenovo, Version 18.104.22.168
disk.sys Microsoft Version 5.1.2600.5512
PartMgr.sys Microsoft Version 5.1.2600.5512
SATA AHCI Controller
iaStor.sys Version 22.214.171.1242 (T410)
iaStor.sys Version 126.96.36.1992 (T400)
How do I add the later SATA driver to the Bart PE load? (Sorry for the trivial question, but I have never installed a driver in Bart PE from scratch before).
