yes and yes. My friends disc did the exact same thing.

I figured out how to do the drivers thing, installed without a problem. The sata mode is set to ahci

Yeah, I deleted everything XP formatted using Gparted, and created a 60gig partition like a previous user directed me to.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It got all the way to 96%, but then a different error popped up...

0xc0000005 Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation

Try without partition to see if it helps.

64 bit sometimes requires first partition on first drive to install.

Needs more driver support from you too. I'd load SATA and vid, maybe chipset.

when I insert the mobo cd, the only driver that pops up is the AHCI driver.

when I insert the NVIDIA cd, nothing pops up at all.....

Suggest you put that AHCI driver into installer

To find your SATA drivers, google mobo + SATA controller drivers

Strongly encourage AHCI for better performance, since your board has it.

I had to enable AHCI after installing RTM using this tutorial which others might find useful, and tells more about it:

How to enable AHCI in Windows 7 after installation | ithinkdifferent

It results in a performance boost.

i have already changed it to ahci, and i also installed the drivers before every installation attempt.

I don't see any sata drivers on the website...

Here are your board drivers: http://www.asrock.com/MB/download.as...5M%20Pro&o=All

I wonder why it only lists SATA RAID drivers. ANYONE HAVE SATA DRIVERS FOR THIS BOARD?

The AHCI driver on the disk might suffice for now.

Confirm on first BIOS page you have latest BIOS update.

Sorry to bust in here but, can you take your HDD to another computer and check it for errors? Those errors sound like maybe a bad sector on HDD.

Will GPART formatting overwrite incorrect XP partition table, as that is what he needs?

Hope if not the Win7 format is enough.
