Why does sysprep fail with new Intel SATA drivers?

Hello,

I've been trying for several days now to update an image of an XP Pro Sp2 installation this summer with new SATA drivers.

However this fails, because the new drivers seem to somehow unable to update the registry at the end of the sysprep. If I use the old version, it works... I remove all references to the old before I use the new one, yet it still fails.

Sysprep runs for around 20 mins, copies some files and is almost complete, when it fails with error message as stated above.
If I remove the Intel Sata drivers, it continues and shuts down properly like it is scripted todo. I cannot be more specific about the error message, because there is no more info.

I am using the newest Intel matrix Storage Manager drivers for XP, 8.5.x.x

I solved it myself.

First, the drivers must be placed outside the windows dirs.
Secondly, forget about using any other method except sysprep.inf.
Thirdly -> Remove either ACHI or RAID, if you have both, it fails, at least in its current version.

Well, there could be issues with the newest driver. If the older driver does what you need, why change.

You could try this driver utility. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/
It searches for drivers so you don't have to. It may find a newer driver than the older one you are using but not the one that is giving you a problem. Also, once you get the drivers you need working on a system, you can use it's export feature to save a copy of all the drivers so the next time you have to reinstall, installing the drivers will be a piece of cake.

I need the new driver because of the ICH10 compabillity, the old version I made in the summer only had up to ICH8.

I just want to use the SATA driver for the image, there are no other drives I want to integrate because it all comes afterwards in its own images which I've already cooked.
