Hi, i just bought a new hitachi sata 500gb internal harddisk on saturday,
Have try install afew time windows xp but fail, the message keep appearing blue screem saying" it is for safely that windows have stop to prevent further damage to the computer, if you have install any new hardware or drive please check if it ok. if not remove and do a chkdsk/f before restalling the system" something like that. the thing is the harddisk is new, and this is the first time installing in the os (windows xp).

Try to change sata setting, but i can only see something like "SATA1~disable or enable." below that setting there is 3 option. "SATA in IDE control mode, SATA RAG(Can't remember the spelling but something like mirroring,), other mass storage." I set it to SATA in IDE mode and only menage to boot it in safe mode, normal startup everytime blue screen and auto reboot.
Wonder is there anything to do with the bios or the system don't support?

What can i do, Please help?
And if i put a add on sata card will it help?

Syetem,

AMD 3800+
Motherboard socket 939
Ram 512mb

Thank you.

First, welcome to the forums. :hello:

Second, I need you to give us the motherboard model to see if there are any bugs or driver issues with that specific model.

Thanks.

I don't really know the model, cause it was a board bought from my friend oversea for me just the board only, still waiting for his reply.
Anyway, after searching through the internet, found actually the same board.
It from Sapphire, model-PE-A9RS482M.

You need the sata driver when installing XP (i picked 32 bits version). Here 's the link: http://www.sapphiret...1.aspx?psn=0006
If the provided link doesn't work look for the "ATI SATA/RAID Driver Floppy Disk(1.0) for Windows XP 32-bit Edition" in the download section.

I have try that,but the download side file seem to have some problem.
I have try install the os on the harddsik in another system, but don't need the driver at all. why is it so?
If i get a SATA add on card, will it be better?

Thank you.

Are you having trouble downloading the driver (I didn't...) or are you having problems
correctly using and installing the driver? :unsure:

Remember you first have to extract the entire driver-archive to a floppy and when
Windows setup has just started, press the F6 button to load additional drivers.

You can just follow the directions stated in the manual on page 53, even if you
will not be using it as a RAID:

When you install a new Windows 2000 or XP operating system on your RAID
set, please follow the below procedure:
1. Insert the bundled driver CD DISC into CD-ROM(D:).
Copy all files from directory ( D:\ATI chipset\ATI_Raid ) to a floppy disk.
2. Install OS from CD-ROM.
3. Press “F6” when display “Press F6 if you need to install a third
party SCSI or RAID driver...”
4. Insert floppy disk.
5. Choose the OS device driver wanted for loading.
6. Install OS.
7. Install driver after OS is installed.

(Though, make sure it's set to IDE-mode in the BIOS first.) :hello:

Thank for the advice.
I have tried unzip the file and copy to floppy and tried installing during installation "F6".
But when "s" is selected, the installation said cannot find any file use for.
The floppy drive and disk is good, because i can format, read and write to floppy disk.
Press "s" again, it tell me D:\ bababa.... also cannot.
Have try ATI SATA/RAID Driver(1.0) for Windows XP 32-bit Edition,by unzip to harddisk and copy over to floppy disk.
But not the ATI SATA/RAID Driver Floppy Disk(1.0) for Windows XP 32-bit Edition yet, i'll try it tonight, to unzip to floppy disk direct.
Anyway i notice both zip file contain the same files, after unzip them.


Thank you.
