Hi baybiz,

You can either try taking the drivers from the bartpe cd, or you can find them online and put them on your Windows XP CD using nlite. Here's the link: http://www.nliteos.com/

I know that will work. But back to the original question - can you run xpinstall cd from the run command on bart pe?

No. Unless you slipstream or use the F6 option when starting Windows setup, the drivers won't get installed. Just because you booted to BartPE doesn't change that fact. Windows setup won't pull drivers from the BartPE environment. Even if setup started, as soon as setup reboots it won't be able to access the drive with the drivers.

And you don't have to go through the hassle of slipstreaming, just copy the drivers to a floppy and hit F6 when prompted during XP setup. Or if you don't care about NCQ or SATA hot swap, you can always change the setting in bios for the SATA controller to run in compatibility mode. Then you don't even need the drivers at all as the SATA controller emulates IDE. In my experience there isn't any noticable loss of performance from this.

Kenneniah is correct, the best thing as far as I know is to use nlite if you want to take your sata drivers and put them on a Windows XP CD.

You can either use the F6 from a floppy while you install Windows XP, or you can install Windows XP first, then later install the sata drivers. The second method is a little bit tricky.

Just answer the original question.... If you build your disc using UBCD4Win, it comes already with "XPSetupLauncher", Allows you to perform unattended installs of XP from within BPE. If you have other BartPE plugins, they will work fine under UBCD....
