    Hi

    I'm experiencing some problems when trying to install win xp with iastor drivers (I don't have a floppy drive)

    Under the installation I get the following message:

    Fatal error: Internal setup data structure are corrupted

    I have searched the net and I came up with that the error is indication an error in winnt.sif?

    My winnt.sif file looks like this:
    --------------
    [Data]
    AutoPartition=0

    [Unattended]
    UnattendMode=FullUnattended
    OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\000_chipset"
    OemPreinstall=Yes
    FileSystem=*
    -------------------

    My directory structure looks like this:
    -----------------------
    cd root > I386 (winxp installation)
    cd root > $OEM$\$1\Drivers\000_chipset (iastor drivers)
    -----------------

    Please help me :(

    1 Is this install to a RAID setup
    2.Is this an attempt at an unattended install.
    3.Are you sure the CD is good.

    I must admit to not having a great deal of knowledge regarding XP install to a raid array.
    See these links
    http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/ - slipstream for raid and unattended.

    I could have sent you that link instead.
    If you have not used nlite before you may not find those instructions as easy as you seem to think.
    However I will leave you with the one you found
    I have threrefore removed mine.
    Good Luck
