Answers:1. If you have disabled the SATA RAID/AHCI Mode within the BIOS, your Intel SATA ports will run in "IDE Mode". That means, that you should be able to get Windows XP or any newer Windows OS installed without loading (F6) or integrating any driver. You can simply boot off the original Windows XP CD and install the OS. 2. A missing driver doesn't induce a BSOD ("Blue Screen of Death"). If the OS Setup is missing any specific textmode driver to detect the SATA drive, it will just don't show you the drive where the OS can be installed. There must be another reason for your Bluescreens. This is what I suggest: 1. If you should have more than 3 GB of RAM, remove 1-2 RAM sticks. 2. Boot off your original (=absolutely untouched) Windows XP CD and try to install the OS without any integrated drivers. If you should get a BSOD nevertheless, you obviously have a hardware problem. Most often the BSOD is induced by bad or overclocked RAM sticks. You can check your RAM sticks by a tool named MEMTEST. Good luck! Fernando I have tried to use my originial windows xp cd but i get bsod - i have only 2 gb ram (normally 4 gb). Can you link to the memtest and is it a dos program?
hey again I will continue my questions from this post: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...mp;#entry841449 First: In my bios i have disabled SATA RAID/AHCI Mode. So does this mean i use IDE Mode? Second: When i try to install my OS (windows xp) the installion guide give me the "bluescreen failure" - is this because i need to add some sata drivers in the beging (F6) ? I dont have a floppy disk btw. And sorry for my bad english - not my strongest skill.
I have know tried to make my own nLite windows xp cd where i integrate windows xp sp3, some drivers (lan driver, sata driver (Intel® ICH8R/ICH9R/ICH10R/DO SATA RAID Controller) and a nvidia graphic card driver). I can install windows without pressing F6. After waiting for the 15-seconds reboote (after install) my comp freeze when trying to loading windows (continue the install). How can i fix this?
Hey i need some help i get following problem; The OS installation fails at last reboot with a short BSOD and endless reboots. Reason: You either didn't choose the correct driver integration method or your optical drive is connected to a S-ATA port, which is set to RAID or AHCI. Solution:Connect the optical drive to a non-RAID/non-AHCI S-ATA port or take an IDE connected CD/DVDROM drive for the OS installation. The motherboard i have is: GA-EP45-DS3R http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Mother...?ProductID=2842 I have tried to add the officiel sata files from gigabyte's homepage. But when I add the driver i have to pick between 10 .inf(s): iaAHCI_ESB2 = "Intel® ESB2 SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH7RDH = "Intel® ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH7MMDH = "Intel® ICH7M/MDH SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH8RDHDO = "Intel® ICH8R/DH/DO SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH8MEM = "Intel® ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH9RDODH = "Intel® ICH9R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH9MEM = "Intel® ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH10DDO = "Intel® ICH10D/DO SATA AHCI Controller" iaAHCI_ICH10R = "Intel® ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller" ; iaStor.inf iaStor_ESB2 = "Intel® ESB2 SATA RAID Controller" iaStor_ICH7RDH = "Intel® ICH7R/DH SATA RAID Controller" iaStor_ICH7MDH = "Intel® ICH7MDH SATA RAID Controller" iaStor_ICH8RICH9RICH10RDO = "Intel® ICH8R/ICH9R/ICH10R/DO SATA RAID Controller" iaStor_ICH8MEICH9ME = "Intel® ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller" These are the drivers i can pick. In bios Sata raid/acci mode has been disabled. Hope someone can help me !
