Hp g61 sata drive Error upon installing windows XP

i have a HP g61 with a 500 gig SATA drive when i try to install windows XP on it i get a windows stop messsage

Stop: 0x0000007b (0xf78d663c, 0x00000034, 0x00000000,0x00000000)

when googled it says something about the sata drive settings needing to be changed in the bios

chang the setting for the sata operation from Raid auto/achi to raid auto ata

but in the bios of the hp g61 there is no option for that, i verified this will work for the error because i just restored a dell vostro with a sata drive and it did work, now i just need to get this hp to work

it has insydeH20 bios setup utility,

any idea?

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware.
You can check your HP/compaq PC here:
General XP Downgrade Guide for HP Laptops - HP Support Forum
NOTE: Please read this thread fully.


If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
Use EasyBCD 2.0 in Win 7.
Download EasyBCD 2.1 - NeoSmart Technologies
