Hey there,

  I tried installing Windows XP Pro SP2 with a Seagate 250gb SATA HDD and when I load the drivers that came with my motherboard (Asus A8N5X) it gives me this stupid error. I tried using both Raid and Mass Storage Device drivers, also the other SiliconImage drivers that came on the CD but NO LUCK. The specs of the setup are:

AMD 3800+ X2
512mb DDR400 Kingston Hyper-X (temp)
500watt Rosewill PSU
Asus A8N5X mobo
DVD-RW drive
Floppy (temp)
EVGA 7800GT

Argh, I appreciate the help.

Thanks

Come on, this is an easy 500 points :(

I'm currently running the latest BIOS available by Asus and have tried 2 different sticks of ram (256 + 512) and right now I'm currently running the 512. I've tried doing it without the drivers and I still get the same problem.

It seems to me like you didn't read my question very clearly, I stated that it's an Asus A8N5X PCI-E motherboard.

apparently not.. I missed that.

Are you in the process of installing the OS or is it already installed?

to confirm

When you are prompted during the setup to install additional drivers you insert your disc (with the drivers) by pressing F6 on the install?

Do I use the drives inside SATA_IDE or SATARAID. When I tried to use the ones inside SATA_IDE there wasn't a textsetup.oem so I threw the one on from SATARAID for giggles and it didn't work. I'm assuming I use... SATARAID? I'm going to try it right now.

Asus says that you need W2kSP4....but it also said the XP should install without a problem.

There limited info on this board on Asus' website.

I need W2KSP4 for what? Drivers? OS? Microsoft needs to get their stuff straight, I'm tired of running into a ridiciulous error everytime I try to put a machine together.

It's really the motherboard that has to conform with the operating system.  You mentioned Win2k?  Got it?

No I meant the drivers for Win2k. I only have Windows XP SP2

What else should I freaking do? I blame this on Microsoft for not incorporating SATA support into Windows \: I tried the drivers inside the Legacy folder just now and they didn't work either.

If you don't mind, explain to me how I should get the correct drivers onto the floppy so I'm not doing it wrong. From finding the folder to the end, ty :)

Expand the extracted folders to
C:\NVIDIA\nForceWin2KXP\6.85\IDE\WinXP

copy on 3 separate discs the contents of each of the folder (make sure the files sit in the root of the floppy disc)

legacy
sata_ide
sataraid

boot the setup and F6 at the appropriate time, then insert all the discs... as you select additional drivers.


If the above doesn't work.. reformat the drive and start from scratch.  Repeat the above driver install.

I found the problem.

I was using a backup of my Windows XP Pro SP2 disk because I would hate to scratch the real one and when I burned a fresh copy of it, Nero told me it failed to burn but usually I've never had a problem with disks that have done that anyway but it seems to have been the problem with this one... I didn't even need to install the drivers when I booted my legit CD of Windows! Sweet stuff. If anybody else is having this problem, CHECK YOUR DISK!!!!
Thanks for your help man!
