Help : Installing WHS from USB and want to slipstream Marvell Drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Thank you for reading my post.  To make the read of this as short as possible, I have created a bootable USB for the purpose of installing WHS from it and when I boot from it, the install of WHS begins just fine.  My motherboard has 8 SATA Slots, 4 which use the Intel chipset and 4 of which use the Marvell chipset.  Afer installing WHS, I installed the marvel drivers and all works great.  What I would like to do is figure out where to put the Marvell Drivers on the USB stick so they are installed automatically the next time I install WHS and what files I need to modify to make this work.   if it helps I have the below.  I read one post that said it was as simple as putting a folder called drivers in the root of the USB stick and the WHS install would find them but is it that easy?

    A folder called AMD64 and one called i386
    \amd64\mv61xx.cat
    \amd64\mv61xx.inf
    \amd64\mv61xx.sys
    \amd64\mvnodrv.inf

    \i386\mv61xx.cat
    \i386\mv61xx.inf
    \i386\mv61xx.sys
    \i386\mvnodrv.inf

    \mv61xx
    \mv61xx.cat
    \mv61xx.inf
    \mv61xx.sys
    \mvnodrv.inf
    \txtsetup.oem

    The contents of the txtsetup.oem are as follows

    [Disks]
    disk0 = "Marvell SATA Driver Diskette", \mv61xx, \
    disk1 = "Marvell SATA Driver Diskette", \mv61xx, \i386
    disk2 = "Marvell SATA Driver Diskette", \mv61xx, \amd64

    [Defaults]
    SCSI = i386_61xx

    [SCSI]
    i386_61xx  = "Marvell 61xx SATA Controller 32bit Driver", mv61xx
    amd64_61xx  = "Marvell 61xx SATA Controller 64bit Driver", mv61xx

    [Files.SCSI.i386_61xx]
    inf = disk1, mv61xx.inf
    inf  = disk1, mvnodrv.inf

    catalog = disk1, mv61xx.cat

    [Files.SCSI.amd64_61xx]
    inf = disk2, mv61xx.inf
    inf  = disk2, mvnodrv.inf
    driver = disk2, mv61xx.sys, mv61xx
    catalog = disk2, mv61xx.cat

    [HardwareIds.SCSI.i386_61xx]
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6101", "mv61xx"
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6111", "mv61xx"
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6121", "mv61xx"
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6122", "mv61xx"
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6145", "mv61xx"

    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6111", "mv61xx"

    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6122", "mv61xx"
    id = "PCI\VEN_11AB&DEV_6145", "mv61xx"

    [Config.mv61xx]
    value = parameters\PnpInterface,5,REG_DWORD,1

  • Download the X-Files iso.  Use the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool available at
     
    to burn the X-Files ISO to your USB.  I believe the X-Files iso contains the Marvel drivers you seek.
     
    Link to how to download the X-Files edition:
     
     
    The direct link no longer is available.
     
    Install from the USB.  Looks like a simple solution to me.
     
    If you want "easier" then pay someone else to do it.
