NTFS (XP) Boot disk with RAID controller driver support

Posted on 2006-05-24

I've found many places to create bootable disks that let you access your NTFS drives.  In my case, I need to load my LSI RAID controller card's driver in order to view the NTFS partition.  How can I do this?

My goal is to be able to edit the contents of my C: Drive (NTFS) including moving/deleting folders, files, etc.

A bootable CD or even floppy solution is fine.  If it can provide an explorer-type interface to manipulate files/directories, that would be even better (similar to Phlak but with NTFS write support).

    BartPE uses win PE, just press F6 during startup and have driver disk ready.
    You will have full access to OS files, if you wish to mount/modfiy registry you can use ERD Commander ( which now seems to be part adminpak....

    Thank you!!

    UBCD v2.6 + Pebuilder v3.1.10a + Drivers v1.8 = greatest boot cd ever.  
    Looking forward to UBCD 3.0's final release (currently in RC5 which didn't work for me).
