@ manticmage:
Welcome at MSFN Forum!

I am trying to install Windows XP on a Sony Vaio VPCEL22FX. It's Chipset is the AMD A50M, and it's southbridge is AMD SB800. I have slip streamed the latest drivers from Fernando 1, the ones posted in post #234 and I get a BSOD at end of text mode Windows XP setup. For some reason these drivers do not seem to be working for my computer.

There are at least 2 possible reasons for the BSOD you got:
  • You didn't use a clean (untouched) XP CD as source.
    It is absolutely necessary to start the nLite processing by using an original XP CD with integrated SP2 or SP3 as source. Don't load any preset (Last_session.ini of a previous nLite processing).
  • You inserted a wrong SATA driver.
    If you are running any Windows OS on your laptop, please run the Device Manager, open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" and - if applicable - "Storge Controllers" sections and post the names of the listed SATA/AHCI/RAID Controllers.
Regards
Fernando

Thanks so much for your replies! I definitely used an untouched source of my Windows XP Disc, inserted the disc, selected it with nLite, it ripped it to a folder on my desktop. As for the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller It is listed in Windows 7 as "AMD SATA Controller" the Hardware ID is PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4391&SUBSYS_908D104D&REV_40. By the way, frustratingly there is no AHCI/IDE setting in the bios on this laptop. I have attached a screenshot of my device manager. Thanks!

Haven't checked Fernando's Package (in post#234) but I found this -

Unpacked using WinRAR, WinZIP, or Universal Extractor gives a "Deployment" Folder with Win7 and XP folders inside with TXTSETUP.OEM for both x86 and x64 for each. The INF/CAT/SYS files are inside them. Snippets -

HTH (someone...) SEEMS to be (somewhat) the same except "newer"?

EDIT!
OUCH!!!! You Integrated them without using the option of Text-Mode in nLite!
Double-ouch! (see Fernando post - I thought it was very much same)

I definitely used an untouched source of my Windows XP Disc, inserted the disc, selected it with nLite, it ripped it to a folder on my desktop.

It is not a good idea to use the desktop or a desktop folder for the nLite processing.
It is far better to create 2 special folders within the root of your partition C, one of them as nLite processing folder (example: C:\XPCD) and the other for the drivers you want to integrate (example: C:\drivers).
Reasons:
1. The path to the files, which are within any personal folder, is too long (with too many digits).
2. NLite may integrate absolutely unneeded files, which are within your personal folders.

As for the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller It is listed in Windows 7 as "AMD SATA Controller" the Hardware ID is PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4391&SUBSYS_908D104D&REV_40.

The 32bit AMD AHCI driver, which I have linked within the post No 234, should work 100% for your system.

Sorry to bump, Fernando, but is the procedure much different than the Intel Drivers procedure? (also see my edit above)
http://www.msfn.org/...d-raid-drivers/

edit/note - Plan on "hacking" an old Dell for additional SATA/RAID modes (nVidia drivers) and want to be sure of procedure, having never done it. I would have "assumed" it would be the same.

The textmode driver procedure itself is rather similar, but for some nForce chipsets it is needed to additionally integrate the nForce SATA driver as PnP driver.
Furthermore there is no All-In-One textmode driver, which is usable with all nForce chipsets.

TYVM, Fernando - suspected as much (re - nForce) from other "digging around". Have the "specific" drivers waiting on my HDD. :)

Again, my thx.

Following Fernando 1's advice, I made 3 new folders on my root C:\, drivers, xpcd, and iso. Redownloaded a fresh copy of the 32 bit drivers from post #234 and extracted them into c:\drivers. Put my XP CD into my computer, booted up nLite and had it rip the CD to C:\xpcd. I then went through the process, did not use any old session data, inserted the 32 bit driver into nLite in text mode. Then I made the ISO and burned it to a CD with ImgBurn. Still exact same thing. BSOD 0x0000007E after the first part of the text mode xp setup (After it loads all the drivers with the text on the bottom). I'm sure I'm doing it right I just don't get why it wont work for this computer.

Other things I've tried:
Removing the hard drive from the laptop to eliminate the possibility of a faulty hard drive, and running xp install setup. Still get BSOD 0x0000007E at the same place.
Swapping out the ram with ram from another computer. Same thing, BSOD 0x0000007E at the same place.

Attached screenshots from my latest nLite session and the last session.ini.

@ manticmage:
Thanks for your detailed report.
The Stop: 0x0000007E BSOD is typical for the presence of a wrong textmode driver within the media you are booting off.
Since you have integrageted the correct AMD AHCI driver for Windows XP, I suspect, that the XP CD you have used as source, may be not as clean as you have thought.
Please look into the i386 folder of the XP CD. Is there a file named WINNT.SIF?
If, yes, it is not an original (= untouched) XP CD.

Sorry it took me a few days to reply. There was no WINNT.SIF file in my i386 folder on my XP disc. To eliminate the possibility of my source disc not being clean, I torrented an "untouched" copy of XP. I then integrated the 32 bit driver into that copy of windows and I got the same stop error code 0x0000007e. I really don't know what else to do.

@ manticmage:

Maybe your optical drive resp.its SATA connection is causing your troubles.
Have you ever tried to boot the XP image off an USB Flash Drive?
Just another idea:
Please open the "Storage Controllers" section of your Win7 Device Manger and let me know the content.

I have tried with a USB flash drive and get the same result.

The Storage Controllers in Win 7 list:

Storage Controllers
|
|-AAY7MI5L IDE

Hardware ID: pci\ven_1103&dev_1720&subsys_656cfa89&rev_01

I looked it up and it is apparently HighPoint Tech's RocketRAID 1720 controller, guessing for the DVD drive? Seems strange to have 2 SATA controller on the same laptop.

I got the drivers on their website and integrated them into a fresh copy of XP along with the 32 bit AMD controller driver, burned it and got the same thing. :(

Fernando 1, thanks a lot for trying to help me out with this. You've gone above what was expected. Thinking about giving up on this, but I just want XP on this laptop. :(

Thank you.

The original textmode driver offered by Highpoint for the RocketRAID 1720 is not easy to use resp. to get it integrated correctly into a Windows XP image.
That is why I have modified it just for being usable with Windows XP.

Thanks so much for modifying this driver for me! Unfortunately whenever I integrate the driver into a CD I get to the Press any key to boot from CD... press enter and it says Setup is starting then reboots the computer. I put the image on a USB drive using WinSetupFromUSB 1.0 beta and at the start of setup I get the follow error message:

Line 15467 of the INF file \i386\txtsetup.sif is invalid
Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

Thanks for posting the related part of the txtsetup.sif file.
According to my knowledge the wrong entry is within the linie above line 15467.
The correct text should look like this:
"[SCSI]
ahcix86 = "AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller-x86 platform"
rr172x = "RocketRAID 172x SATA Controller for Windows XP"
sparrow = "Adaptec AHA-151X/AHA-152X/AIC-6X60 SCSI Adapter"

Please do the following:
  • Open the txtsetup.sif file, which is within the i386 folder of the XP directory, which has been processed by nLite (C:\XPCD or similar).
  • Open the txtsetup.sif with the Editor (notepad.exe), go to the line containing the wrong entry " = "RocketRAID 172x SATA Controller for Windows XP" and add the missing "rr172x" as I have posted before in fat letters/digits. The related line should now look like this:
    rr172x = "RocketRAID 172x SATA Controller for Windows XP"
    Then save the modified txtsetup.sif file.
  • Start nLite, navigate to the XP directory containing the modified txtsetup.sif file and let it just create a new ISO file.
  • Recreate a bootable USB flash drive containing the just modified XP image.
  • Boot of the USB flash drive.
Good luck!

Thanks, that got it past that error but it's now back to the 0x0000007e bsod. Starting to think it's not worth my (and your) time to mess with it anymore. :(

That would be your decision. Since I am very curious to find out the reason for the issue, I don't like to give up unless there is no reasonable chance to succeed.
On the other hand I don't have many ideas left about what to try.

Hi, I'm new here and have just registered because I've been following this thread and am in need of advice.

I have recently bought a Samsung 840 SSD and after migrating my old OS disk to the new drive, I noticed the Samsung Magician software said I didn't have AHCI enabled. Anyway, long story short, after changing my BIOS and a few BSOD's I found this site. I have manage to slipsteam an XP disc with SP3 and the drivers Fernando very kindly posted (Thank you very much!) and I am now able to boot with the AHCI setting in BIOS.

In Properties > Hardware for the disk it says: 'Samsung SSD 840 Series SCSI Disk Device' and has the following info in Location: Bus Number 0, Target ID 3, LUN 0
In my device manager there is no entry for a SATA controller in the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers but I do now have a SCSI and RAID controllers entry that contains AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller and a AMD RAID Console. Therefore, I'm assuming I'm running in AHCI mode.

However, the Samsung Magician no longer recognises the SSD and I'm wondering if I did something wrong.

My mobo is a MSI MS-7720 with a AMD Zacate E350D, dual core and Hudson D1 chipset.

Thanks in advance!

No, you have done everything the correct way.
AMD doesn't offer "clean" AHCI drivers for Windows XP. That is why you have to use an AMD RAID driver, which is AHCI compatible. The Samsung tool named Magician generally is not able to detect an AMD RAID Controller.
If you want to run a "clean" AMD AHCI driver named amd_sata.sys, you have to install Vista, Win7 or Win8.

Hi Fernando, 

 

I recently purchased a HP 455 laptop and since then trying to install Windows XP-32 bit on this laptop. Currently, I have installed windows 7-Ultimate-32 bit. I am not successful installing windows XP after following all the guidelines and precautionary measures pointed in the earlier posts. I get the error message "AMD_SATA.SYS file not found" error during installation. Downloaded "32bit AMD SBxxx textmode driver v3.3.1540.29 for XP mod by Fernando". Does not work for this hardware. Please help me. I am providing the details of the hardware of the laptop. 

 

Specs taken using cpu-z application:

AMD E1-1200 apu with radeon hd graphics 7310

CHIPSET: AMD A40/A50 SERIES FCH REV.00

SOUTHBRIDGE: A55/A60M REV.11

 

HARDWARE ID taken from device manager:

 

IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers:

 

Standard ACHI 1.0 serial ATA controller

PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7804&SUBSYS_188B103C&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7804&SUBSYS_188B103C
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7804&CC_010601
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7804&CC_0106

 

Please let me know if you need any other information about the hardware. I have burnt more than 6 dvds till now without any success following the instructions in the earlier posts. Please let me know. Thanking EVERYONE here for very useful discussion here...

Do you use the driver from post #234?
There is no file amd_sata.sys, nor at txtsetup.oem.
There is a file ahcix86.sys.

Which windows XP files do you use?
Did you include any other massstorage drivers? Did you include a Vista/Windows 7 AMD AHCI driver?

Did you select txtmode during integration?

 

Also just grab that file and drop it in your i386 folder before burning. Thus it will be found.

The AMD AHCI Controller of your system has the DeviceID DEV_7804 is definitively supported by the modded AMD textmode driver, which I have offered at post #234.

So you either have integrated a wrong driverpack (the diver named "amd_sata.sys" is only usable with Vista and Win7/8, Windows XP needs a file named "ahcix86.sys" like cdob already has written) or you have used an XP source, which has already been modified.
