You have any idea why it's constantly giving me this BSOD, even with the drivers slipstreamed? I tried doing exactly as I did with the Windows XP 64-bit installation that worked, but no luck...
If you have integrated the same AHCI driver version as 32bit model, which had worked with XP x64, the BSOD has been caused by something else.
What about your RAM sticks? Did you already check them with MemTest? If you have more than 1 RAM stick, have you tried to remove all other RAM sticks before you began with the OS installation?
What about your PSU? Is it good and strong enough for your system?
What about Overclocking? An OS installation should always been done with the default BIOS settings regarding the CPU clock/voltage and Memory timings/voltage.
Hey, thanks for the reply once again Fernando.
I figured out the constant bsod problem. It was actually my USB 3.0 that wouldn't go in XP (not surprised there..), so I changed the ports for my USB 3.0, and tried, this time it worked with no BSOD, BUT the installation was EXTREMELY slow.. As in 20% in about 1-2 hours.. I let it sit for the night, installing, but when I woke up, the installation screen was gone, and it was just stuck at my motherboard logo loading, rebooted it, to see if it would continue the installation process, but now it can't find the ntoskrnl.exe, and my other Windows XP 64 is not working either. I'm guessing that's because of the Windows 32-bit installation screwed with some boot settings.
So, how do I go for getting the installation in normal speed? I tried slipstreaming the USB 3.0 drivers, but didn't help, still got the BSOD. I also tried changing SATA ports / cables, still didn't make the process any faster.
The HD I'm trying to install Windows XP 32-bit on, is a Western Digital WD10EAVS Caviar Green Hard Drive - 1TB, 3.5", 8MB, SATA-300 HD, and it's split up in 3 volumes. 1 for Windows 7, 1 for Data and 1 for Windows XP.
PS. I have been looking around the net for a solution, but they just refer to slipstreaming the SATA drivers, which I already did.. Oh and yes, the SATA mode is at AHCI
Any help would be appreciated as always. And thanks again for all the support!
