    Well nvatabus.sys is the RAID or the storage controller file that you load when initially installing Windows for your SATA drives. You should have a disk somewhere with these files on, that you put on a floppy disk. When you install Windows, it asks you to press F6 to load these drivers and then half way through loading the files off the disk it asks you to insert the floppy disk with these on.

    That's if you are re-installing Windows, though.
