Setting up XP after installing Windows 7. Booting up the WinXP CD gives me a BSOD STOP: 0x0000007B error.

When I first installed the drivers for the motherboard, I also installed something called Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Is that a RAID system and is that why my WinXP CD is giving the STOP error? And if so where do Iget the RAID drivers, is it another Motherboard manufacturer's job? And can I uninstall the RAID system?

Y'see, my mobo is a Micro-Star International board but I can't find the model number. 'System Information for Windows' gives it as 'To be filled by O.E.M.'

Also I have no floppy drive; it's a laptop. Surely there must be some way of doing this - nobody has a floppy drive any more!! The only thing I can think of doing is to somehow create a disc image of a fully-working WinXP system and put that on my intended partition using Macrium Reflect or similar. Would that be practical?

Any ideas, please?

Yeah, you need to get the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers. Go to the Device Manager in Windows 7 (Right-click Computer, click Manage, then click on Device Manager in the menu on the left), go to the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers (I think it SHOULD be there), check the driver version, and try to find a version of it for XP on Intel's site.

Since you don't have a floppy drive, you'll need to use nLite to integrate the driver you found into the Windows XP installation disk. There's a turorial on how to add the driver. After that, the Windows XP installation should load like normal.

Brilliant! Better than downloading the drivers, now I know what to look for on my system CD, I have found the same version of the driver in the WinXP folder.

I will integrate now and see how I get on. Thanks!

[Edit] Still gives a STOP error. I will do more research to make sure I have the correct drivers, and try again. I'll let you know either way. Thanks for your help

Cheers

SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Ok, an update. I have removed the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers using Add/Remove Programs or whatever its equivalent is in Windows 7.

I have tried to use the original XP disc to install WinXP and I still get the STOP error.

Therefore no doubt I should try to find the drivers for SATA now rather than RAID - I'm not really sure that the system was doing RAID drives anyway.

The list of ATA/ATAPI controllers now has lots of drives listed, it's very different from what it was before the IRST was uninstalled.

So now I am looking for Intel 5/3400 drivers and I will keep you posted

Cheers

Your Win XP CD may/may not have the Sata Controller Drivers you need.
As Win XP CD with NO SP's has a few Drivers, to Win XP with SP3 has most Drivers for Sata Controllers.
Can you post the MSI model No? (not the Novatech)

If you have the Intel Sata Controller, you can download from here:
F6 Intel Sata Controller



or from this folder on the CD.

Ok I have the f6flyp3289.zip and I have unzipped the files.

I have run nlite and created a folder on my desktop (XPR) to which nlite has copied the WinXP master CD. I have created a folder in the XPR folder, and have included both the iastor.inf and iastor.sys in a folder in that directory called 'microstar'. When nlite asks me to point to the .inf file, I point it to that one and it runs and burns the CD.

Was that correct to do it that way, or should I have copied the entire contents of the F6 floppy zip file to the folder?

Booting from the new nlite Windows CD still produces a STOP error. This is getting really frustrating; is it really possible to actually run a 32-bit and a 64-bit OS on the same machine?

One other thing is that I have removed the Intel IMSM system from my machine using Add/Remove Programs. The IMSM system will now no longer install from the apps CD that came with the computer. I removed it because I wanted to simplify the problem: IMSM is as far as I know a RAID system so I wanted to remove the necessity for an XP RAID driver. If I have sinned then please forgive me
