Blue Screen in Windows XP when using Sysprep with AHCI sata settings enabled.

I am completing a standard image update in a corporate environment on Windows XP SP3.  I am having trouble getting my sysprep file to work on a dell Latitiude E4300 laptop with the sata settings set at AHCI.  I am using SMS OSD to deploy the image.  This works fine.  The image file copies to the local machine fine and upon the first reboot, I get a blue screen.  I believe my problem lies in my sysprep file somewhere.  Any ideas?

I am looking for a solution which enables the machine to stay in AHCI mode.  My image does work when I set the System configuration in BIOS to Sata or compatibility.  There should be a way for the image to work without having to change any BIOS setting for it.

you would have to include in your xp build the sata driver as they arent native to the xp build before sp3

The driver files (iastor files) are listed out in the "OemPnPDriversPath" portion of the sysprep file.  I guess I should have clarified that.  I didn't want to list out all the driver files listed for that, there's a bunch. :)  Coming at it from another direction, what would need to be changed in windows to have it accept the AHCI mode on the next reboot if you built the machine while it was in SATA mode?  It just seems I am missing a switch somewhere that needs to be flipped.

thats the issue, building the machine in SATA , you would be better off building the machiens in comptability mode and as IDE drives then putting tehm to SATA once set up or even keeping teh as IDE the benefits of SATA over IDE arent huge depends on what you need it for

Im not 100% sure its the switch thats the issue, building sata amchiens on xp with sys prep always causes me headaches!!
