I need to build an nLite modified WIndows XP SP2 Disk with integrated DVD-RW Sata Drivers

My problem is that when trying to install Windows with a SATA CD Drive, I get BSOD as soon as the "Starting Windows" dialog comes up after loading drivers for the installation.

I have integrated the Storage Controller drivers along with LAN/Video/Audio, but need to figure out the Drive...

The BSOD error is that the boot device has become unavailable.

Any help would be appreciated!

Do you have more info on the motherboard, And the BSOD hex code.
I read your other Q's and thought maybe this might be helpful if your motherboard is an ASUS P5K Deluxe.

Hey sparkmaker,

The motherboard is a P5K Deluxe

I have found that using an IDE drive to install WIndows has gotten me around the issue, but if I plug in the SATA DVD-RW drives it takes about 15 minutes at the BIOS Screen before loading...

half resolved (PS. I'm running 0404 BIOS (most recent))
That link I posted didn't work, Here is the body of the ASUS FAQ that I was trying to get you to.
-->My system cannot install OS (regardless of Windows XP or VISTA) after enabling AHCI or RAID support for ICH9R chipset.
What can I do to fix this problem?

This is because older versions of ICH9R IMSM (Intel Matrix Storage Manager) driver (include VISTA boxed driver) has compatibility problems with several models of HDD from particular vendors.
Please kindly build a new AHCI/RAD driver diskette using makedisk tool v7.5.0.1017, and load this driver prior installation of operating system (Windows XP and VISTA) to fix this problem.
The other thought I had was to change the bios setting for the SATA controller to IDE mode which would bypass the AHCI and RAID issue above. This setting is found on the MAIN menu page under the SATA CONFIgURATION header.
