Hello,

I am trying to repair a laptop for someone and I am doing a fresh install of Windows XP Professional and I am having a hard time finding the correct chipset drivers for it. It is a Gateway 600YGR, I have tried many from Intel's website and Gateway's website, but neither of them have worked. I am using nLite to slipstream these to a DVD. If anyone could help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

This should be the driver for the Gateway 600YGR's Motherboard Chipset
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?...

This download is valid for the Intel® 845 Chipset Family which is the Gateway 600YGR Chipset.

If you 've already tried these drivers, and if the Laptop is working, install the Intel Driver Update Utility for driver auto detection. Play the Video for Instructions if you need to.

Thanks Chicano for the reply! I have tried both of those drivers offered from the Gateway website and Intel's website and slipstreamed them into the Windows XP installation disk, but I still get a BSOD after the Windows Setup finishes and starts the install. The exact error code I get is STOP 0x0000007B (0xF8981524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). Perhaps I am not slipstreaming them correctly, I am not sure. I am almost at wits end with this machine, but I know there is a solution for it, I just can not figure it out.

I am going to try slipstreaming the drivers again, but I want to make sure I am doing it correctly. I downloaded the driver utility from Gateway's website and since it is an .exe, I extracted the files from the .exe by using the cmd interface and ran setup.exe -a. The files were stored in program files in the folder named Intel. Inside that folder there are numerous different options I can choose from and my question is, how do I know which one is correct for my system? I googled the Intel 845MP chipset and it says it used ICH3-M for its IO controller. Inside the extracted folders from the driver utility there 6 folders, 440MX/ICH/ICH2/ICH2-M/ICH3-M/PIIXX. Inside each of those folders are options for an operating system. I figured I should choose ICH3-M because that is what the chipset calls for, and then XP because that is the operating system it uses, but inside there is many different drivers and I do not know which driver would be the correct one. Sorry if this is all very confusing to you, but I am losing my mind here. Thanks for any help.

Tyler, whichever driver is included in the extracted XP folder is the correct one to install, but... you should slipstream the complete 3623KB 9520303.exe file. As far as I can tell, your problem is probably not due to an incorrectly slipstreamed Chipset Driver but could be any of the causes mentioned in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 324103. The causes are listed in:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103/en
One that is not mentioned there is SATA drivers.. (In case your HD is SATA, more on about it at the end of this reply).

Check the following nLite tutorial for the propper procedure to slipstream drivers.

CAUSES for the Error Code 0x0000007B.
Advanced troubleshooting for "Stop error code 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE)" errors in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103/en

As you can see by the article title, the main cause is Inaccessible Boot Device (Boot partition/Hard Drive) due to different causes,.. not only incorrectly installed Chipset driver or the appropriate Driver missing. Infact I have never slipstreamed the Chipset driver in any of the multiple Windows XP installations I've done... I always download it afterwards and sometimes I haven't even installed it.. So, in my experience the installation should conclude normally with the drivers included in the Windows XP CD. If your Hard Drive is SATA you may have to slipstream the SATA Drivers or configure the BIOS for IDE Mode, IDE Native or IDE Legacy.

Hey Chicano, thanks for your input. hat drivers do you suggest slipstreaming then? I've done all the chipsets, so I'm guessing you're right and that's not it. The drive is good I've tested it and it passed numerous checks, the memory also tested out good. The drive was working and had xp installed, but had so many viruses I decided to wipe it and here I sit.

Whut?... sorry, I'm not familiar with the term "hat", but I suppose you mean SATA drivers? So, sure they can be slipstreamed for a quicker & smoother installation, and no tampering with the BIOS IDE Mode Setting should be necessary for installations on/from SATA Drives.

The viruses you mentioned must have been the root or the problem, they could have been in the HD or in the BIOS. If the problem continues consider resetting the BIOS to make sure it's cleaned. Removing the BIOS cell button battery for around 15 minutes should kill a BIOS virus. If the battery is hard to access, try resetting the BIOS with the key thats indicated at the BIOS post.

Try HDD Health to get a more accurate diagnose of the Hard Drive condition.. it registers a percentage that represents the HD condition… obviously the higher the reading, the better condition… I’d start worrying if the reading is down to 30% or lower. One of my hard drives that was registering 20% soon failed, but another one I am right now using is at 0% but running without a problem… the reading must be false, because this hard drive read 60% the last time I ran HDD Health on it, a couple of months ago and it’s temperature is reading –1º C. which is obviously false. So this application at least gives a specific reading as opposed to the regular HD diagnose software that just give a result of OK or Bad.

Here is the funny thing, I was able to install windows vista ultimate on the system no problem. The CMOS battery was taken out a few days ago when I first got the machine, had to reset the bios password. By hat I meant "what" as in which SATA drivers would I need to install xp.

OK, so any chance of the BIOS being infected was taken care of when you reset the password.

About SATA drivers, I was guessing the possibility of a SATA Hard Drive but now that I found the Gateway 600YGR specifications, it uses IDE Hard Drive, and you don't need to slipstream SATA drivers.

Oh ya, duh. Wouldn't need sata drivers for an IDE drive. Why would it load vista but not xp professional like was originally installed? Im so confused.

Well, to me it may mean Vista is more advanced and written to overcome installation problems that bugged XP.. XP should install if the Hard Drive is thoroughly cleaned, so the logical question is, did you format the hard drive in quick or complete format?

If you did a complete (slow) format, you may need to check the Hard Drive Jumper/s... if the jumper/s is/are configured as MA (Master), try CS (Cable Select) instead. If that wont do, try slipstreaming the XP CD with a different application...

I did a secure erase, writing 0s to the drive, then I used partition magic to format the drive to ntfs.

OK you should probably format the Hard Drive with the XP CD during the XP Installation... the CD is more reliable than third party applications. A spanish Microsoft MVP recommended using the XP CD to format the HD... he said that third party apps did something to the drive or partitions... don't recall exactly what, but according to him, something that caused problems with Windows XP... so it's better to follow the expert's advice.

I meant slipstream the XP CD with some other application... the links include links to different slipstreaming apps. I have only used nLite, Auto-Streamer and manual slipstreaming on XP... so nLite is not the only option and it may be what is causing the problem.. Try first formatting the drive with the XP CD, and if necessary use a different applications to make another bootable XP CD.

I can't format the drive using the cd, I don't get to that option.

Yeah, I got it later... the XP CD doesnt load so you don't get a format option. So try some other partition application like Minitool Partition Wizard or Easeus Partition Master from a Live CD.. or Live USB. If one of these apps works, it's possible the Windows XP CD may have a problem.. btw, is that how you used Partition Magic.. from a Live CD?

You could also install Widows XP from a USB Flash Drive.. in case the DVD Drive should be the problem.
