250gb sata hard drive.

PROBLEM: im kind of new to this raid business so please correct me if im installing xp wrong... i inserted the bootable xp sp2 disc in the cd-rom and it was loading all the files and when it was just about to start up after copying all the files the blue screen error appeared with this code (see below)...

STOP 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0XF78360BF, 0xF7C82208, 0xF7C81F08)

Is it a RAID hdd (2 or more combined into a single one?) If so, you need the RAID drivers, you press F6 when XP is inspecting your hardware.

If your motherboard doesn't support SATA drives, it will need the drivers, do the same and select sata drivers.

yes the motherboard supports sata drivers. it has 5 sata inputs. 2 x red master , 2 x black slave and 1x silicon image (which i have no idea what that is...)


the hard drive is a sata 250gb hard drive supports a sata cable not a IDE cable. so when i press F6 when windows xp is copying the files to the hard drive...what shall i do after that????

I meant by that, does the motherboard naturally support it (Nvidia Nforce 4 for example) or does it require drivers (like VIA chipsets.)

You do not need anything to do with RAID as it is a single drive.

if you need to install drivers than you need to put the drivers ona bootable floppy disk, and when XP is inspecting hardware (not installing crap) then you press F6.

The drivers will be on the motherboard CD, so copy them onto a bootable floppy.
