Windows install does not enter GUI Mode - BSOD


 Share

Recommended Posts

There seems to be a problem with my hardware or the type of Windows that I use when I try to use an unattended install. I have both a working, real XP key and the OEM versions of Windows XP Professional. When I use my original Windows CD that is the Gold version or the one I slipstreamed myself with SP2 it ALWAYS will install correctly. When I try the Windows XP Professional OEM version that also has SP2 slipstreamed it does not work. I will get a BSOD on the reboot after formatting and copying files over. The BSOD contains a stop about removing any new hard drives or hard drive controllers.

I am currently using a..

ABIT NF7-s Rev2.0

Maxtor 80 gig DiamondMax9 SATA

512MB PC3200 RAM Geil

I'm really not sure why it stops... I've been messing around with the BIOS settings and my hard drive. Could it be that the drivers on CD are corrupt or broken? I've tried this with two different XP Pro OEM versions and they have come to the same result.

Yes, I am 100% sure that the drivers are on my CD, they seem to match the one that came with my NF7-s motherboard. SiliconImage 3112A SATA are the drivers. I'm sure the winnt.sif is correct or windows would not read my drive.

This happened to me recently. The install started OK, files copied over, and the installation proceeded apace, but BSOD occurred upon reboot. Googling the error code brought up a Microsoft discussion that clearly suggested the problem had something to do with my SATA driver install. My WINNT.SIF was correct, so I downloaded a fresh copy of the drivers and replaced the ones on my CD. Worked like a charm. Somewhere along the way my driver files had become corrupted, apparently.
