This subject seems to be on the fourm a lot however none of the answers on here seem to work...
I have a Compaq Mini 110 which suffered from HD failure. Complete loss even with a software restore program so at the moment it has a brand new identical like for like replacement.
I have tried installing Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 all retail versions, all from flashdrive conversions on a USB Stick and each time I get a nice error telling me that there is no HDD (Raid/SCSI) Driver and I should load one onto the system.
Let me add a point here I am a MCP in Windows XP so I have a great understanding of hat I am trying to do, I just don't seem to be able to do it!
Things I have done:
1) Tried a simple straight from bootable USB installation of Windows XP Home with no slipstreamed driver
2) Slipstreamed the drivers from the HP Forum (Intel Chipset 945GSE 82801GBM/GHM) and updated the install with SP3 standalone installer.
3) Slipstreamed an Intel driver from the Intel support forum however this was a different revision and still failed.
4) Booted into Vindows Vista setup, entered CMD and updated Bios (Fine)
5) Booted into Windows Vista CMD and installed a random selection of drivers, rerun setup from the prompt and still no joy.
6) Testing the HDD in anoher Asus EEE PC whichalso boots and requires SATA/RAID drivers on install and it worked fine.
7) Switched the HDD from another laptop running Windows 7 32Bit (I understand the different architecture would cause problems). Got as far as the splash before a BSoD stoped and restarted.
8) F5 boot into XP to choose PC type
9) F6 loaded drivers into XP with multiple driver discs.
I am out of ideas people and I could realy do with some help on this one.
Laptop details are as presant:
Compaq Mini 110
Running latest release BIOS
Standard spec (No upgrades)
BIOS Checks pass 100%
0x8086 (Intel) 0x27C5 (AHCI Controller)
Don't know what else I can put but if someone can email the contents of their intel folder for this laptop of even point to the fight F6 installation disk it would be great.
I was also under the impresstion that Intel drivers were shipped as standard with Win Vista/7 so I was also concidering that the board may be fried?

You need to slipstream Intel ICH7M SATA driver. Informations how you should do this and SATA driver you will find in pdf / doc file which is in point B of the link below:
