Hello all, I am desperately doing battle with installing Windows XP and I seem to be losing badly. I have a Fasttrack 66 IDE Raid card with 2 IBM 35 GB Deskstars in stripe 0 array. That sits on an Asus K7m Mainboard, Athalon K7 800 keeping it warm, 256MB of ram to play with, Canon Scsi Scanner card (which is an adaptec AIC 7850) and another Adaptec 2940OU card next to that which talks to my Plextor 12speed SCSI CDRW My 3d Prophett DDR DVI card (MK1) serves to trap your finger when you try to get near the creative labs live card which is buried right underneath the 3com 3c905 TX network card. Other than that, a trusty dvdrom drive is hooked up as seconday slave onto the mainboard ide slot2. I am trying to put XP pro on top of windows ME. However, I get the famous blue screen of death with the stop message 0x0000007f (inaccessible boot device). That message appears when I am trying to run the XP installer..after its done the diag bit in ME and reboots Ok says me, I know, the XP boot thinks the raid is SCSI so I need to load the IDE Raid drivers for the raid card.. pressed F6, inserted floppy that came with the card when new (1.5 years ago) obviously there is no XP drivers on it, and XP said the the sys file on the A drive was corrupt so aborted... Right says me, off to promise website for new drivers.. looked at FAQ's, looked at drivers, loaded it up, inserted disk, tried win 2000 driver for fasttrack TM card, it blue screened, same error. tried Win 2000 for fasttrak 66 card, blue screened tried Win 2000 for fasttrak 100 (helll i live in hope) bluescreened tried Win 2000 for fasttrak tm 100 (again hopefull) bluescreened Tried Nt for all listed.. bluescreened Spent the next FIVE HOURS downloading every driver that even might stand a chance, everyone I tried blue screens same error message.. Promise website is more than useless, it says and i quote from memmory here "insert your promise familly raid driver disk that came with your product and after pressing F6 choose the Windows XP driver" !!! Which is complete and utter tosh, not to mention the fact my driver disk is 1.5 years old. but nowhere on the Promise website does it mention any XP driver files, all it does mention however is "Windows XP may say the filter for the fasttrak card is incorrect, press enter and ignore it as windows XP works fine with this card without the filter so we havent released a driver!" At this point I feel like paying them a visit with a tank!! However, they are now shut till sometime mid january in the new year (or at least thats the telephone message) so then, over to the good old helpfiles of microsofts technet, but of course, do a complete search for Fasttrak and not a mention, nor promise, eventually I found an obscure link to here.. But before I decided to write my woes down here, i dosconnected my DVD rom, who knows maybe its trying to load the boot sector onto it? anyway, still bluescreened. removed Canon Scanner card - nope, still blue screened removed plextor CD and Adaptec Scsi Card, nope, blue screened Removed sound card, network card and everything else that comes off without going bang until I have mainboard, proc, ram, raid and 2 disks, floppy, and agp card And it still blue screens same error, 0x0000007f (inaccessible boot device). Does anyone have a workaround for this, I want to install XP on the raid, I do not want to buy another IDE drive just so I can install XP. I also have some 40GB's of work related stuff on the disks so a total wipe and clean install is also out (but thats not the problem anyway) Anyone had this problem and managed to fix it without just putting in the driver disk, pressing F6, then S and it working perfectly, because mine isnt.. yes, I am desperate, yes its been a long day, yes I want to go and lie down, but before I do I want to install XP!!
