How to make a floppy driver disk for x64 RTM
I am going to install the new RTM x64 xp on my athlon64.
I have a raid0 made of two 160G Maxtor SATA HD disk.
I have already download the 6.39 nforce driver and copy all the file in the
IDE\WinXP\ directory to my floppy disk the same as x32 xp.
When install the system,it recognized the raid 0 disk smoothly ,but when it began copy files, the file nvraid.cat could not be found.How can I do?

And I copy the nvraid.cat file from nForce_6.53 for x32 to the floppy disk , it can finish copying files,but when it restart, it failed to boot in to windows and show a blue screen crash.How can I do?

Make sure that u have the 64 bit version of the Nforce4 drivers. extract the exe file on another computer using WinRAR. Go to the IDE folder within the NVIDIA folder and copy everything except the Raidtool folder to a floppy. This is now your raid driver disk while loading windows and it says hit F6 for controller support. Go into your bios and enable the nforce raid, and also, the sata channels for the two disks. Next create a raid array using the Nvidia raid utility (refer to your mobo book). Insert the windows 64 cd and boot from rom. presto.

Also there's no .cat files which means your gonna have to hit <ESC> Key twice before the CD starts intalling, Don't wrry its normal for now.

(.cat=catalog file.)

You can *steal* the cat files from the 32-bit install to avoid this problem.

Just copy them to the boot disk and *viola* no annoying "Can not copy..." message!
