Default Hard drive help

Heres what I got

Athlon 64 2800
MSI K8mm-V Mobo
256 mb ddr 400
Seagate 80 gig SATA
WD 20 gig EIDE

Im trying to run windows xp on the sata drive,
I have installed xp via bootable disk, but when attempting to load xp
an error message says "windows was stopped from loading to prevent damage to your system" and then following an error number with lots of zeroes and threes. I have plugged the SATA drive into another computer and was able to format, partition and add and use files from it. So theres a 70% chance its not the hardrive itself

Any ideas guys?

did your motherboard come with a floppy with drivers on it? I experienced this problem one time and the thing was that you have to load the RAID drivers from the mobo into XP as it sets up. To do this get the floppy that came with your mobo, as the setup loads, it weill say press f6 to load raid drivers. do that, wait til everything loads, then it will eventually ask if the ones on the floppy are correct
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 ghz
Gigabyte: GH-PCU21-VG 3D Cooler Pro
1024 mb OCZ Ultra High Performance Ram (Dual Channel)
PNY nVIdia GeForce 5200 128 mb
60 gb hd
17\" Hyundai lcd
Wireless G Networking Interface
Unusable 100 gigs of scsi hds in an inclosure

result: one kickass pc

from what i know, some motherboards/other devices require you create certain settings and use different bootdiscs before putting an OS. read through your motherboard manual and see what it says about "the first time you boot" or whatever
