Sounds like you have the wrong driver.  I looked at the support for the L300 and I cannot find any mass storage drivers.  What drivers are you using and where did you get them from?

Was this the driver listed before you rebuilt it?
Download SIW from http://www.gtopala.com/.   Click on Hardware, then PCI.  Do the devices found here match the driver you are using?
STOP 7B is the BSOD, correct?

OK, it looks like you have a ICH9 chipset, so the ICH8 SATA driver isn't going to work.
I found ICH9 drivers here: http://www.symantec.com/connect/downloads/sata-ich9-drivers-windows-xp-driver-injection-script
If you open up iaahci.inf within the ZIP file and search for ICH9, you'll come to this line:
; ICH9R
%PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&CC_0106.DeviceDesc% = iaStor_Inst, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&CC_0106

If you go back to SIW and click on your SATA device, SIW should give you the vendor, device, subsystem vendor and subsystem device numbers.  These should match the above line if they are the right drivers.
If SIW shows you that your SATA vendor is 8086, the device is 2922 and the subsystem device is CC_0106, then these are the right drivers.

Download the Intel Chipset INF Update Utility:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=816&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
Within ich9ide.inf, this is the device you have:
%PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2928.DeviceDesc%=pciide_Inst, PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2928
