Fernando 1, U R a Genius!!!

I followed your instructions by the book and - hooray! Bravo!

The system insisted on reactivation becouse configuration changed and in this case it was a good sign!

Thank you again, good luck and best regards, dear Fernando I !

Copy file ahcix86.sys to system32\drivers. Import this reg settings

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_1002&cc_0106]
"Service"="ahcix86"
"ClassGUID"="{4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ahcix86]
"Type"=dword:00000001
"Start"=dword:00000000
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001
"Tag"=dword:00000021
"ImagePath"="system32\\drivers\\ahcix86.sys"
"Group"="SCSI Miniport"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ahcix86\Parameters\PnpInterface]
"5"=dword:00000001

Goto BIOS, set AHCI. Reboot.

I did the steps above, used the drivers that Fernando 1 separated 32bit AMD/ATI SB7xx RAID&AHCI Driver v9-4 (WHQL) and after reboot i have:

NTLDR Is Missing Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart.

I have 1 SATA HDD with Windows XP on it, 1 IDE HDD and 1 IDE DVD

That's at early boot stage, there is MBR, partition boot sector involved so far.

There is no windows driver involved so far.

Did you changed anything else?

May be a strange BIOS. Which hardware do you use?

1 SATA:WESTERN DIGITAL

1 IDE Maxtor

There are two hard disks.

Does the BIOS change load order and try to boot from IDE hard disk?

As for testing purposes disconnect the IDE hard disk.

Solved!

It seems like after reboot in bios changed the order of HDD.

Now working fine but it seems like that its need more time to boot.

Boot order was IDE first.

At IDE emualtion the first hd was the WD SATA hard disk.

At AHCI mode, the first IDE hard disk is the Maxtor. Hence the ntldr not found.

I guess you reconnected the maxtor and changed boot order in the meantime.

Now working fine but it seems like that its need more time to boot.

Yes, there is a time out at ahcix86.sys. The driver wait for late drives.

Can you find a way to post the exact BSOD for closer reference?

Edit: Which also got me thinking: this topic is no different that the other two Fernando 1 works on. Is there any special reason why it shouldn't be sticky? Just a thought

The Day Walker!, the 7B Stop Code says that Setup cannot find the install drive. It is usually a text mode driver problem. Since you did not attach your Last Session, as requested in bold red above, there is not much more I can say. Please attach it and we will take a look. Enjoy, John.
