New Motherboard, new SATA HD, Processor & RAM. Reloading WIN XP Home on new SATA 160 GB HD and right after boot from disk, it is installing drivers and:

File atapi.sys encountered an unexpected error (8192) at Line 3514 in d:\xpclient\base\boot\setup\setup.c.

New board is an Asus P4S800D-X with a new 160 GB drive connected to the primary SATA slot. No other Hard drives connected at this time.

Please advise!

Thanks Much! Happy 4Th.

This is usually a symptom of a corrupted or otherwise unreadable installation disc.

Make sure of the following:

1) Your CD/DVD drive is in good working order
2) You are booting off a clean unscratched regular CD or DVD, and it is NOT a cd-rw or a dvd dual layer. Reburn it if you are.
3) Your installation is not corrupted or missing files (e.g. it works on another system)

... and, just for the sake of things, make sure your motherboard's bios is updated to the latest. There's a slim chance that it's the large hard drive making your system choke and a bios update will fix it.

it looks like a bad file on your cd; you can try to clean the cd, or lens with a cleaner kit
check also your bios settings, if they are set to Sata, or compatible !

Unfortunatly, this is one of those issues where I may have solved the issue myself.
I did find out that a separate SATA driver added through the F6 option during setup was required. However, if one forgets that, it says to the user that a hard drive was not found later in the installation and gives you the ol F3 exit option, not an error.
Thankfully, I never say the error again and my new installation has now moved on to other issues.
Thanks anyway for the effort!
