f6drivers.img

Posted at

Hiren's BootCD's menu.lst includes the following part:

title Mini Windows Xp\
Run Antivirus and other windows programs
# example password: test
# password --md5 $1$gNe0$KZPOE8wNbTNSKOzrajuoB0
find --set-root /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN
#map --mem /HBCD/XP/f6drivers.img (fd0)&&map --hook
chainloader /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN


The f6drivers.img line is marked out (the file does not actually exist),

You may download the x86 drivers from: #1 or #2, WinImage and just place the content in a new .IMA file, next- rename the extension from .IMA to .IMG.

Download a ready to use .IMG files:

- (NEW) Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) RAID Driver (v15.2.0.1020 10/20/2016)
- - x86
- - x64
- (OLD) AHCI: F6 Floppy Disk Utility for AHCI (v9.5.0.1037 10/14/2009)
- - x86
- - x64

What to choose?
Well- Hiren's BootCD's "XP" is really a WinPE, which is based on a x86 Windows-XP, tweaked to be loaded into the RAM,
so- you definitely need a x86 version.

Either choose the new one or the old one.






How to use BOTH of the .IMG files?


  1. download both the new and the old .IMG files to your desktop.


  2. rename x86__f6drivers.img to f6drvnew.img,
    rename x86__f6drivers_old.img to f6drvold.img (proper "8.3" naming).


  3. move the files under HBCD\\XP\\ (same folder having XP.BIN and XP.wim)


  4. Use Notepad2 or Notepad++ (not Windows'-Notepad!) to edit the HBCD\\menu.lst file,
    and..

    replace:
    title Mini Windows Xp\
    Run Antivirus and other windows programs
    # example password: test
    # password --md5 $1$gNe0$KZPOE8wNbTNSKOzrajuoB0
    find --set-root /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN
    #map --mem /HBCD/XP/f6drivers.img (fd0)&&map --hook
    chainloader /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN


    with:
    title Mini Windows Xp\
    Run Antivirus and other windows programs (NO SATA)
    # example password: test
    # password --md5 $1$gNe0$KZPOE8wNbTNSKOzrajuoB0
    find --set-root /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN
    #map --mem /HBCD/XP/f6drivers.img (fd0)&&map --hook
    chainloader /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN

    title Mini Windows Xp\
    Run Antivirus and other windows programs (SATA Drivers - NEW)
    # example password: test
    # password --md5 $1$gNe0$KZPOE8wNbTNSKOzrajuoB0
    find --set-root /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN
    map --mem /HBCD/XP/f6drvnew.img (fd0)&&map --hook
    chainloader /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN

    title Mini Windows Xp\
    Run Antivirus and other windows programs (SATA Drivers - OLD)
    # example password: test
    # password --md5 $1$gNe0$KZPOE8wNbTNSKOzrajuoB0
    find --set-root /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN
    map --mem /HBCD/XP/f6drvold.img (fd0)&&map --hook
    chainloader /HBCD/XP/XP.BIN


    (Save the file.. done)


  5. You're basically done, but your BootCD will only work for Intel-Chipsets
    So feel free to enhance it with drivers from other vendors(VIA, nVidia, etc...)
