hello, perhaps this thread can help me. Situation: I was running win xp3 on a asus m2n-e board for the past several years. I believe the M2N-E has the nvidia series 4 chipset. The xp was installed on a sata raid 5 configured drive that was bootable. About 2 weeks ago, the machine would not boot. The LED power light on the board would not come on. After debugging memory, power supplies, etc, I decided to replace the board. I chose the M2N68-AM PLUS. I now have the BSOD problem. The machine powers up, the windows splash screen displays, the little cylon indicator goes back and forth a few times, then the BSOD happens with a 0x0000007B. Specs: M2N68-AM Plus 2 gig memory Sata Raid 5 disk (same as on original machine), raid bios 9.87 displays healthy raid. 630A nvidia series chipset. ACHI does not appear to be an option in the bios. on-board video, lan, and display I have tried numerous times to re-install (repair) the os on the drives. no joy. Original windows update CD does not recognize any hard drives on the computer (expected behavior) Using nlite, i have slipstreamed new raid drivers onto an active@boot disk. I can access the partition (C:) drive, files are there, chkdsk says it's healthy. After reviewing several hundred discussions of the problem, I discovered this thread. I have tried numerous combinations of slipstreaming drivers onto the windows cd. It will then find the drive, re-install the os, boot to the windows splash screen when complete, then BSOD with the same error. I have booted in safe mode, command line mode, with boot logging, etc. no combination seems to make a difference. Combination of drivers attempted: sp3, fernando_101028_mix, w/ide pnp sp3, fernando_101028_mix, no ide sp3, fernando_99909_custom, no ide sp3, fernando_99909_custom, w/ide pnp sp2, fernando_99909_custom, no ide sp3, fernando_103046, no ide Any suggestions will be appreciated.
