Hello,

The storage controller for my laptop is an AMD AHCI compatible RAID driver and in order to run WinXP SP2, I downloaded (via Google) AMD SATA drivers and integrated all the .INF files into WinXP using nLite. However, when I try to install XP, an error "ahcix86s.sys file is corrupted" appears and setup cannot continue.

Does any1 know where I can find properly working AMD SATA drivers for this Acer with an AMD Athlon (x86-based) laptop?

P.S. Thanks to fella1960 for his help

Unzip them all to their respective folders.

Copy XP CD to a temp folder on the hard drive.

Install nLite:
https://www.nliteos.com/download.html

Use nLite to make a new XP disk with the above drivers on it (might need a DVD-R if new size goes above 700MB with drivers).

Add Drivers:
Insert -> Multiple driver folder -> Browse to each extracted driver folder (top level) -> OK
Select: WDM, 32, 32bit, XP, XP32, x86, etc
AVOID: Vista, Vista64, Win7, Windows 7, XP64, 64, 64bit, x64, etc

You can also integrate SP3 at this time if needed.

Burn to disk or save as ISO and then burn.
