I made a mistake in my specs which I think is now fixed - just that the motherboard is the GA P35C-DS3R, but I put the GA P35-DS3R.

I tried an installation with logging, which says it writes to ntbtlog.txt, but the only file by that name I could find was under my current C:\WINDOWS, and appears to refer to my current installation, as there are mentions of drivers installed on XP but that I obviously haven't put on 7.

Hi Davik,

1. You may wish to power down your PC (shut off the main; it never hurts to be careful)

2. Disconnect the SATA drive.

3. Boot up, head into BIOS.

4. Disable your AHCI / SATA Raid

5. Leave the option for PATA /IDE option to 'Auto'

6. F10> 'y'

7. System starts up, press F12

8. Boot into USB Drive.

9. Install Windows 7 on the IDE drive.

10. If you are able to get the installation down and boot into '7' successfully, congrates

11. If not, you may wish to try the drivers located here: Icrontic Intel chipset drivers for Windows 7 have arrived

It's the latest from February 09.

From what I see on the Main Gigabyte site: GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-P35C-DS3R (rev. 1.x) ; I am unable to see any ICH9R updates dated year 09'. You may wish to grab the latest drivers to help you out.

Also, it would help if you can boot into you current OS and check what type of controller for HDD are you using and try to find the latest version, if the previous link doesn't match your own set.

Please report success or failure so that I think up of what to help you next.

Take a look on this: "DS3R works just fine with w7. Using Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility 9.1.0.1012
downloaded from this very site.

http://downloads.guru3d.com/Intel-Ch...load-2134.html "

This is the latest driver I have found

Just to clarify, I have the following unchanged (selected relevant options)

SATA RAID/AHCI Mode - Disabled
Onboard SATA/IDE Device - Enabled
Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode - IDE
Onboard Serial Port 1 - 3F8/IRQ4 (This is the only option on the Integrated Peripherals page with an Auto option)
Onboard Parallel Port - 378/IRQ7
Parallel Port Mode - SPP

What, if anything, should I be changing?

Here's what I would try.

Low level format the 320GB hdd using a tool from UBCD or something.

Try to install windows 7 on it. When it asks you where you want to install , obviously you choose the 320 but don't create any partitions, just format and install. ( Disconnect your 80GB )

Just my 2cents

I wish I could do that, TGSoldier, but I need to keep a lot of the program data that's on the 320GB to use with my XP install, until I can ensure a succesful Windows 7 installation, to continue using for work.

I'm currently trying the driver updates, though I'm not sure whether I should be trying these now, or at the Partition Selection point in the Win7 installation process.

Also, how do I found out what type of hard drive controller I am using?

I would disable the serial and parallel ports too, just in case.

Installing with just the 80GB drive connected didn't work.

I disabled the Parallel and Serial Ports, no change.

I installed the intel chipset drivers from XP, with no change.

I'm not really sure when or which of these drivers I should be installing, and whether I should have the SATA drive connected or not.

I'll get back to you tomorrow, going out now.

Thanks for all the help so far.
