How load RAID drivers with Win7 answer file?

November 23, 2010 at 19:18:34
Specs: Win 7 Pro 32-bit, 2Ghz/2GB
When installing Windows 7 manually I am able to load the RAID drivers with a USB stick, but I have an answer file that wipes the disk before installing, and that fails with error 0x80300025.

The answer file works fine on other computers but this one which requires a RAID driver to be loaded gives the error. My question is how can I get it to install the RAID driver automatically?

Thanks

Are these Raid drivers specifically Windows 7 drivers? Is this onboard Raid or an add-on card? What board/card? Are you using the Custom option when installing Windows 7?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

Try copying the drivers to a folder on the desktop and running them from there.

Fingers: The drivers aren't specifically Windows 7 drivers, but when doing a normal Windows 7 install they load up fine, I just don't know how to get it to load them when using an answer file during the install. It is onboard raid, not sure about the board but I'm using a Toshiba Tecra S3

OtheHill: Can't do that as I don't have a desktop yet, the issue is happening while doing an unattended install of Win7

Maybe you can install Windows 7 on one drive only (non raid) and after it is up and running, install the drivers, copy the drive (image) onto a second drive, and then initiate the raid.

And look into downloading Windows 7 drivers for your motherboard (all of them).

But it needs the drivers before it even starts loading the image doesn't it?

I Googled about slipstreaming and it appears it is not supported by MS. I can only assume MS thought any required drivers should be included. I don't think there is any easy way to do it.
