Check this website for Nlite:
Download the F6 drivers for the onboard RAID controller as it is present by default in Windows XP/2003, it is present only in Vista/7/2008
Usually, due to compatibility issue from Microsoft, the F6 drivers dont work with many external floppy drives
So, i use a software called NLite to slipstream the F6 driver into the Operating System thus allowing me to create a new
Operating System with the F6 drivers already integrated.
Burn the new OS image onto a CD
Install the OS
Install all the latest drivers from the Website in the following order Chipset, GFX, Audio, Lan, Intel Storage Matrix Manager etc.
That's all - i never got any problem so far on any Intel Desktop Boards.
Hope this helps a bit.
