Windows 7: Dual boot with XP SATA driver issue and no floppy

06 Apr 2010   #11

windows 7

I finally got around to doing this.

I created the new partition and I slipstream the drivers into my copy of windows XP (sp0)

I put the cd into the drive and restarted the computer.

I hit a key to boot from the disk , it copied all the files and said it was starting windows.
Then I get a blue screen with this error:

PCI.SYS - Address F748EOBF Base at F7487000 , DateStamp 3B7D855C

Any idea what this is ? What to do to get fix it?

When I did mine, there were several choices as to type of chipset and such. I had to make sure the one I chose agreed with the chipset in my system. Attached is a list of files on my floppy.

I also have a floppy made by TEAC, an FD-05PUW. I can't remember if I had the floppy controller turned on in the bios, but I think I did.

Hi Saltgrass

I can't get it to get pass the "starting windows" then I get the blue screen.

This is what I have done:

Picture below of what device manager looks like.

I created a partition. Below is what it looks like in disk management

I got the drivers from Intel Download Center ( do I need 32 bit or 64 bit????)
Put them on a disk. Below picture of the files and how I selected it.

I put the OS cd into the computer

re-started the computer - hit enter to boot from the cd and F6 to load the driver from floppy disk

I load the driver and hit enter to finish loading the files.

It said stating windows.

Them I get the blue screen-disk_st.jpg

What is the 14.65 G Recovery partition? Since it shows system, it is just like the System Reserved partition Win 7 adds. You probably need to put a drive letter on it as the tutorial suggests. If you do not, XP cannot find itself, but this normally results in another type of message. Since it is not a Win 7 partition, I do not know if this will effect your sytem, but you can take the drive letter off later.

There is an alternative where you set the XP partition active, but you show it as a logical partition and cannot do that.

The files you have look correct. When you select the .inf file in the F6 install, how many options do you get for chipsets? It should say the same thing as your Device Manager setting. I think I was given 4 options with my Intel 4 chipset..

You use a 32 bit for a 32 bit version of XP...

Saltgrass , Thanks for getting back to me

I will add a letter to the recovery partition and see what happens.

Are you saying that I have to change the partition from logical to active?
Can this be done or do I have to deleting it and adding it back in?

I get 4 option choices and I picked the one that is like the one in the device manager

Thanks , Again

No, you do not have to make the partition primary, but if you you are not looking to add partitions, you could. Use Partition Magic if in the future you desire to change it, or do what you suggest.

This is not related to your current install situation.

windows 7

I finally got WinXP to install. To get it to install I had to change a
setting in my bios from AHCI to ATA. (in bios - advance - sata operation)
This work fine installing the software (XP).

But one problem. I can't boot into windows 7 without changing the setting
back to AHCI and into Winxp without changing it to ATA.

Does anyone know a way to get around this?

You can Google for adding AHCI to XP after installation. I did it once a couple of months ago and it worked, sorry I do not remember the exact site I used for instructions.

In Win 7, all you have to do is change a registry entry, but it might be more complicated in XP.

If you can't get it to work, I will try to do it again.
