Just have had the worst day trying to get an OS onto an old P4 which has an Asus P4P800 mboard and an embedded via raid controller.
After a disk corruption
caused by running chkdsk /f C:. Update: Looks like the disk corruption wasn’t caused by my disk check because when I did a complete restore from tape the exact same problem occurred sigh.
I Tried to re-install Windows 2003 Server on it and it didn’t have the drivers. and I don’t have a floppy drive on this machine. I tried all sorts of weird and wonderful WINNT.sif TXTSETUP.sif TXTSETUP.OEM hacks, and rebuilding the CDROM using a cd build tool from barts.
