Motherboard has both JM Micro SATA ports (not used) and 6 SATA 2 ports designated SATA2_0 to SATA2_5,
which are supported by the P55 chipset
In BIOS, Integrated Peripherals screen, I have option to set PCH SATA control mode as IDE, RAID(XHD) or AHCI
If I choose AHCI then Windows XP will fail to load with STOP 7B message
I currently have dual boot Windows 7 / Windows XP and have used Nlite from windows 7 to slipstream my XP Pro (32bit)
CD and have integrated SP3 and tried various SATA drivers but still get the STOP 7B message when installing from the Nlite CD
Device manager hardware ID's are below (from Windows XP):
Under IDE ATA/ATAPI controller:
Intel ® 5 series/3400 Series Chipset Family 2 port serial ATA Storage controller - 3B26
Intel ® 5 series/3400 Series Chipset Family 4 port serial ATA Storage controller - 3B20
I have tried integrating iaAHCI.inf from the 32bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID driver v220.127.116.116 WHQL
but if setting the SATA controller in BIOs to ACHI my Nlited XP install disk starts to load windows XP
but after first reboot fails with the STOP 7B message.
Drives are connected as follows:
1 500G SATA II drive connected to SATA2_0 (This is my Windows XP and Win7 install)
1 LG DVD/CD connected to SATA2_1
1 500G SATA II drive connected to SATA2_2 (all partitions linux and freeBSD)
There is no linux boot loader to worry about at the moment, boot loader is Windows 7 BCD
controlling boot of both Windows 7 and XP
Thanks in advance if anyone can help.
