I am trying to install a new sata seagate barracuda 500gb 7200.14 hard drive on my asus a8n sli deluxe motherboard with an amd 64 fx-ff processor.
The problem i am having is when win sp sp2 tries to install i get a blue screen with an irq less error.
Any suggestions will help thank you.
Because there is not SATA driver with winXp sp2 so that you need to go to ASUS website to download the driver under IDE " Silicon Image 3114 SATA RAID driver V126.96.36.199 for Windows XP(WHQL)/2K/2003". And store it in the USB, when you install the winXP in some point you need load this SATA driver, just watch the youtube " How to load the SATA driver during XP installation using F6 method"
^ Just as cin19 said Windows XP does not know what SATA is without the proper drivers at the install startup. If I remember correctly it will say press F6 to install SSCI drivers. SATA is done the same way.
