SATA issues after changing motherboard
Posted on 2006-05-05
I've just swapped out my MSI K8T-NEO using VIA SATA drivers for an ASUS K8N-SLI SE which I _believe_ uses SIL3114r5 SATA. When I tried to fire up XP it displays the 'Windows XP' loading screen then blue screens and the machine reboots. I've slipstreamed the SIL drivers onto an XP CD and tried a repair install but it didn't fix it. I've even gone into the XP install using Recover Console and deleted the VIA drivers from \windows\system32\drivers as I thought it might still be picking them up. Safe mode reboots after loading all the drivers. Unlike my VIA chipset the XP Setup CD detects the hard drive even on an non-slipstreamed install disc. Does anyone know how I might be able to fix this without a format?
