SATA DRIVE AND WINDOWS INSTALL

am trying to install a Maxtor 500 GB interal HD to a Hewlitt Packard Windows Media Center PC m7860n and every time i try it, i get a blue screen of death with the following error:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer, If this screen appears again follow these steps:
Check for viruses on your computer.  Revmove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers.  Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Rune CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)
i have tried installing the windows media center 2005 OEM on 3 drives witht he same result.  It goes through the process until it says starting Windows then it crashes.  the hard drive im trying now is brand new.  I think i may need the drivers for the sata hard drive but I do not know where to get them.  And the disk that came with the hard drive says to use it to boot from if windows isnt installed in the system but it does not work either it just brings me to a DOS screen, with 3 options- SETUP, DDS, and INSTALL but it wont let me use any of them.

Even system did require install sata controller driver during OS installation, you should do that using F6 to install. In your case, go safe mode, and install sata controller drive.

the problem is i cant get to safe mode because the computer doesnt have windows on it, the hard drive that did have it corrupted so i cant install anything from anywhere but the boot disk and that doesnt work for me cuz of the issue above  i tried pressing F6 when i did the install and it asks for a floppy drive that I dont have.

In this case, I would create a slipstream xp and add sata controller driver in. Link below is how-to:

Easier way is to get a floppy drive though.

I can't find your model on HP, so can't check configuration. It doesn't appear you need sata drivers - if this were the case, it would end setup with no drive found, press F3 to exit, rather than crashing. This then suggests that something else is amiss. Was the failed drive SATA also? Have you plugged the drive connection into the same port as the original? (Keeping in mind that sometimes there are two sets of SATA ports, one for stand alone drives and one for raid). If you plug a single drive into a raid port, setup will fail. If you enter the bios, is the drive detected including correct capacity?

well i wanted to use a floppy drive but i dont know where to get the drivers for the sata stuff its a Maxtor Sata II 300 internal 500 GB hard drive but i couldnt find much on the web page or any thing really about how to install it with a floppy and the manual that came with it pretty much sucked.

It was set up in a raid configuration but only one drive that i knew of failed and that was the one with windows on it initially.  the drive read the right capacity in bios on the new drive.  but it didnt matter when i tried it with one or 2 drives in they both failed the install

The sata controller driver is for your motherboard, not for the hard drive though. I could not locate your system model in HP website, do you write correctly the model?

Download dban: http://dban.sourceforge.net/ and wipe the drive completely, then try install again.

As far as I can see there are options in the bios to run raid or standalone. You must either disable raid, or use two drives and create a raid array before attempting to load WIndows or run the recovery disks. A single drive should be in the black port on the mobo (SATA 1).

PUNKYs link re inaccessible boot device supports the theory that the array configuration is wrong I suspect.

it says SATA Mode- IDE, Raid, and AHCI, i imagine if i just want to use 1 drive now to put it into IDE?

ReinbachS3rdAuthor Commented:
hey putting it into IDE mode looks like it worked!

PUNKYCommented:
Right, the wrong configure as Bhris said above is right answer.

Yep. That should be it. Let's hope it is happy now!
