BSOD error message when installing XP for dual boot

hi was wondering if i could get any tips or advice, i keep getting bsod error message when trying to install xp, it looks like i have to install the sata drivers, i think i have to slipstream the driver with xp as from my post here, but i cant find the sata driver for my toshiba hard drive anywhere. My sony vgn-aw120j does not have drivers for xp on the sony website and toshiba does not have drivers on theirs. my hard drive is a mk-3252gsx from toshiba, many many thanks

Hi. You don't have to slipstream.

You do need the SATA driver though, available on floppy, CD, DVD or a hard drive not attached to SATA (like IDE.)

I believe this is what you're looking for. it will make a floppy for you so you can have that when installing XP. Hold down f6 (I think, from memory) when it asks during install if you need to install other drivers.

hi torrent, thanks for helping, if i put the sata driver on cd will the xp
(2002 xp disc) setup find it?, i thought it would only look for a floppy.
im not sure what the chipset name is, i see montevina and also something intel cantiga pm45 on my system info.

I think it will work from a CD but not entirely sure. My strong guess is yes, as long as the CD/DVD drive in not attached to a SATA port and is IDE drive instead.

I gave you the correct link above. I edited my post before with it.

You'd be better off putting the driver on a USB key then. That definitely doesn't use SATA.

It's probably because you didn't extract from the downloaded file. That file is supposed to make a floppy. Just placing it on USB will not work.
