That's how you can tell. You got back info saying you had Adaptec ASPI 4.60 installed. XP doesn't install an ASPI layer, so you either ran ForceASPI, or another program to install it.
"ASPI is not properly installed. One ore more components have been replaced with older version of the software."
Should I try to put it all back to Microsoft or rerun ForceASPI, or what?
I'd use ForceASPI to remove ASPI, and then reinstall it. If that still gives an error, try removing and then installing from the original Adaptec 4.60 install file. That's what I had to do, as ForceASPI would fail on my system. If you use the original Adaptec install file for 4.60, you need to have a qualifying Adaptec product for the installer to run.
