I have a new P5E3 Wifi-AP MB with a 2.8G P4 CPU.
I am trying to load Windows XP Pro, but keep getting the
STOP 0000007B message.
I have tried loading the drivers supplied with the MB thru the F6 function. (Makedisk chipset, Makedisk jmb). I have tried with and without these drivers but still get the same message immediately after the 'Starting Windows' text from the Setup CD.
I have a single 500Gb SATA drive and am configured for IDE mode in the BIOS.
I have partitioned and formatted the drive using a bootable DiskGenius CD, so I know that the drive is good.

Re: P5E3 WiFi-Ap MB won't load XP
Make sure that the drivers you are using can support XP Pro because im not sure if they can. Also, double check to make sure that you have all of the necessary drivers and other things to make it run. Thanks and happy new year.

Make sure you check that the front audio cable is connected properly on your motherboard. You can see how it's supposed to be hooked up and where it is located on page 2-32 in either of the manuals I have linked up for you below. And if you haven't already make sure you have the correct audio driver installed.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
You can download the drivers from ASUS site. Make select your model laptop, and make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers that matches your Windows operating system. Click on this link :- http://usa.asus.com/index.aspx
Why do you have your SATA configuration set to IDE compatible if you're using an SATA drive? You only need to do that if you have an IDE drive in the system in most case. Try setting your BIOS to failsafe mode and see what happens.
