I have a Emachine model number EL1300G-02W that I need the raid drivers for so I can reload the OS.  The OS I'm installing is Windows XP Home.  The driver doesn't appear to be listed under Emachines website and I'm unable to determine the true MFG of the motherboard.  Thanks in advance.

This computer have NVidia 6150SE chipset with integrated RAID. Try to use driver for this chipset from gigabyte:

RAID or AHCI driver (depending on your bios settings)

Don't forget you can reinstall from the hidden system partiton on this model

Which avoids needing to extract the SATA drivers from the nVidia package.

@als315, no luck with creating the floppy.  When I choose the file listed within the Windows setup the HD is still not found.  I've searched the BIOS and the ability to make changes referencing the HD i.e. RAID, IDE, etc. doesn't exist.  I can make a slipstream disk but I'm not sure it will help.

@masqueraid, F10 does nothing on this machine.  My options are del and F12.  I did try F10 but nothing happened.

You need to hold down Alt while hitting F10
