For simplicity, I will just link you over to the thread I am participating in at HP... but short version - this system is only a few weeks old so it IS the new system.

After much discussion with HP, the nForce 720a motherboard DOES have PCIe version 2.0 slots. So I have already purchased and am awaiting delivery on a new 650w Thermaltake PSU and Radeon 4890 GPU.

We'll see how it goes.

PS - Aries, yes, I slipstreamed the drivers. But I had to use one set of nVidia drivers for the SATA and another set for everything else. Don't know why.

Hi Dave, i just found your thread, looks like you got it up and running though, they should add the sata drives guide in their guide i think.

Yea, you might think. But HP apparently doesn't want to share too much "classified" information.

Have you tried the games in Compatibility Mode




I have tried to stream in my own SATA drivers, but it has no effect. I either have bad/wrong drivers or the error is actually something else.

I am getting the "0x0000007B" error.
I have same exactly problem with you !
I heard that you solved it !
Can you tell me step by step how to install Win XP
B/c Im getting 0x0000007B erro too !
I have Gefore9100 + Ram 6gb ( same with your compt, right ? )
As you said that you have to download Nvidia for XP and install it on win 7 ?

First of all, I followed this guide exactly. The only difference for me was that my install CD did not have the proper SATA drivers for my motherboard, thus the errors. I was able to create my own install cd and slipped in more SATA drivers. This is the article I used to do that from DigitGeek.

The trick for me (and everyone) is to find the RIGHT drivers for your board. It took me about 6 tries (and 6 worthless DVD burns) to find the right combo of SATA drivers to get the install up and running. But once I did, I had not troubles with the install.

You need to find the make/model of your motherboard, then check the specs there and determine your chipset. Search google for sata drivers for that motherboard/chipset.

It sounds like you have an nVidia board if it has the 9100 on board video. In that case, you want to search nVidia's site for SATA drivers for the OLDEST OS you are installing. Which I presume is 98.
