*solved* Installation fails at first boot from harddisk (Refusing to l


Recommended Posts

"Legacy" is installed on C:

It is Win2K and WXPMCE2005 (after reinstall in the both first partitions of my SATA drive)

Booted from Vista's DVD the install stops after the bootmenu was shown!

Then afaik when the bootmgr loaded it tries to load the winloader.exe which stops with a black screen. :realmad:

Any hints?

Edit: I forgot to say that all system reside on a 200 GB SATA disk on VIA onboard SATARAID (MSI board). Earlier days i had no install problems...


I found out that enabling the RAID functionality in the BIOS helped me out of these circumstances...

You may write now as replies here if is a bad idea to have RAID 0 with only one Sata harddisk!

I second having raidsupport but the harddisk isn't configured as a raid of course.

My actual Win2K and the WinXP MCE2005 runs very well...

I redid the new booting environment but no running Vista yet. It is independent if i try x86 or x64 DVD to boot and install...
