* 4.  INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
************************************************************

General Installation Notes:

1.  The Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility 
    should be installed on the system after Windows XP has
    been installed.

2.  Double-click on the self-extracting and self-installing 
    setup file and answer all prompts presented.

3.  If you are installing the operating system onto a 
    RAID volume, you must pre-install the RAID driver using
    the F6 method described in section 4.2.

Note:
  
By default, all general files (README.TXT, etc.) are copied 
to the path <bootdrive>:\Program Files\Intel\Intel
Application Accelerator 
	
4.1 INSTALLSHIELD* (AUTOMATED) INSTALL FROM HARD DRIVE OR
    CD-ROM

1.  Download the Intel(R) Application Accelerator RAID 
    Edition setup file and double-click to self-extract and 
    to begin the setup process.

2.  The Welcome window appears. Click on the Next button to 
    continue.

3.  The Software License Agreement window appears. If you 
    agree to these terms, click on the Yes button to 
    continue

4.  The Choose Destination Location windows appears.
    Click on the Next button to continue.

5.  The Select Program Folder window appears.  Click on the 
    Next button and the driver begins to install.

6.  If the InstallShield(R) Wizard Complete window is shown 
    without a prompt to restart the system, click the Finish
    button and proceed to step 7. If it is shown with a 
    prompt to restart the system, click ‘Yes, I want to 
    restart my computer now.’ (the default) and click the  
    Finish button.  Once the system has restarted, proceed
    to step 7.

7.  To verify if the driver has been loaded correctly, 
    refer to Section 5.

4.2 PREINSTALLATION USING THE F6 METHOD FROM A FLOPPY DISK

1.  Extract all driver files from the installation package.
    See Section 6 for instructions on extracting the files.

2.  Create a floppy containing the iaStor.inf, iaStor.sys,
    iaStor.cat and TxtSetup.oem files in the root directory.

3.  At the beginning of the operating system setup, press F6
    to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver.

4.  When prompted, select 'S' to Specify Additional Device.

5.  When prompted, insert the floppy disk you created and
    press enter.

6.  At this point you should be presented with a selection
    for "Intel(R) RAID Controller". Highlight this selection
    and press enter.

7.  Press enter again to continue. Leave the floppy disk in 
    the system until the next reboot as the software will 
    need to be copied from the floppy disk again when setup
    is copying files.


************************************************************
* 5.  VERIFYING INSTALLATION OF THE SOFTWARE
************************************************************

Use the following steps to verify installation of the
Software if installed via Have Disk, F6 or unattended 
installation methods.

* Run 'Start' then 'Control Panel'
* Double-click 'System' Control Panel Application
* Select the 'Hardware' tab
* Select 'Device Manager' button
* Expand the 'SCSI and RAID Controllers' entry
* Right-click on the 'Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller' 
* Select 'Properties'
* Select the 'Driver' tab
* Select the 'Driver Details' button
* 'iaStor.SYS' should be displayed

Use the following steps to verify installation of the
Software if installed via InstallShield or PFW installation 
methods.

* Run 'Start'
* Find the 'Intel Application Accelerator RAID Edition' 
  program group
* Select the ‘Intel Application Accelerator’ item
* The Intel Application Accelerator RAID Edition application 
  should be shown


************************************************************
* 6.  ADVANCED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
************************************************************

The following SETUP flags are available:
  -?           	   Help information for the setup flags 
		   (shown below)
  -S           	   Silent install (no user prompts)
  -B           	   Forces a system reboot after installation
  -P <path>    	   Supplies target installation path
  -A           	   Extracts all driver files (does not 
                   install driver) to <path> if -P is also 
                   supplied, or the default directory 
                   otherwise
  -N           	   Install all components except driver
  -NoGUI	   Install only the driver
  -O <name>    	   Supplies target Start Menu Program Folder 
               	   name if installing Companion applet
  -L<lang code>    Forces a particular language install (See 
		   Section 3 for a table mapping <lang code> 
               	   to language).  There cannot be a space 
                   between –L and <lang code>
  -build       	   Display build info
  -f2<path\name>   Creates a log file in <existing path> 
                   with <name>; this is to be used during 
                   silent installation. There cannot be a 
                   space between -F2 and <path\name> and the 
                   path must exist prior to installation

Notes:  Flags and their parameters are not case-sensitive.  
        Flags may be supplied in any order, with the 
	exception of the -S and -L flags which must be 
	supplied last. When using the -A flag, a target 
        path may be specified via the -P flag, and the -O, 
        -L, -S, and -N flags are ignored. When using the -P 
        or -O flags, a space is required between the flag 
        and the argument; when using -L and -f2, however, 
        there should be no space.  When using the -f2 flag,
	a log file name and path must be specified, and the 
        path must exist prior to the installation.

*** Use one of the following command examples to extract the 
driver files from the different packages:

	c:\iata_cd.exe -a -a -p c:\<path>
	c:\iata_enu.exe -a -a -p c:\<path>
	c:\setup.exe -a -p c:\<path>

When run, the installation process begins; simply click
through the dialogs accordingly. This will not install the
driver, it will only extract the driver files to <path>. 
Once the extraction is completed, the driver files can be 
found in <path>\Driver.

To install the RAID driver as outlined in the Microsoft*
document, "Deployment Guide Automating Windows NT Setup," 
use the supplied TXTSETUP.OEM file included in this 
package and insert the lines below into the UNATTEND.TXT 
file.  This method is available for Microsoft* Windows* XP. 
For Windows XP, the iaStor.inf, iaStor.sys, iaStor.cat, and 
Txtsetup.oem files need to be extracted.  To extract these
files, use the method described in this section.

Microsoft Windows XP:

  // Insert the lines below into the UNATTEND.TXT file
  
  [MassStorageDrivers]
  "Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller" = OEM
 
  [OEMBootFiles]
  iaStor.inf
  iaStor.sys
  iaStor.cat
  Txtsetup.oem


************************************************************
* 7.  IDENTIFYING THE SOFTWARE VERSION NUMBER
************************************************************

Use the following steps to identify the software version 
number following a Have Disk, F6 or unattended installation

* Run 'Start' then 'Control Panel'
* Double-click 'System' Control Panel Application
* Select the 'Hardware' tab
* Select 'Device Manager' button
* Expand the 'SCSI and RAID Controllers' entry
* Right-click on the 'Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller' 
* Select 'Properties'
* Select the 'Driver' tab

  'Driver Version:'

Use the following steps to identify the
Software version number if installed via InstallShield or
PFW installation methods.

* Run 'Start'
* Find the 'Intel Application Accelerator RAID Edition' 
  program group
* Select the ‘Intel Application Accelerator’ item
* The Intel Application Accelerator RAID Edition application 
  should be shown, with the version shown in the splash
  screen.  It can also be viewed by selecting the Help,
  About menu item in the application.


************************************************************
* 8.  UNINSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
************************************************************

NOTE: This procedure assumes that the above installation
      process was successful. This un-installation procedure
      is specific only to this version of the software and
      installation file included in this package.

* Uninstallation of this software would render all data
  on any existing RAID Volumes inaccessible and therefore
  it cannot be uninstalled.  Please consult the user guide
  for instructions on how to delete the RAID volume or 
  disable the Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Controller.  It is
  recommended that any RAID volume be deleted before
  disabling the Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Controller.
  Disabling the Intel 82801ER SATA RAID Controller would
  re-enable the SATA controller and the operating system
  would no longer use the Intel(R) Application Accelerator
  RAID Edition driver.
