Try this AMD SATA ACHI (Sure it will work,,,I'm insured 100%)

or
http://www.4shared.com/file/244365332/737959f5/32bit_ATI_SB7xx_RAIDAHCI_drive.html


I have the same prodect (dv5 1125nr AMD processor Turion X2, AMD chips and ATI VGA) and I succeed in downgrade vista and install win xp
first burn these small files in a floppy disc (press F6 in a starting of the blue installation screen when you use floppy)
http://www.datarecovery.com.sg/data_recovery/img/ra_reformat_2.gif

not: If you have 32bit windows xp cd version you have to choose AMD ACHI SATA controller X86
if you have 64bit windows xp cd version you have to choose AMD ACHI SATA controller X64

or if you haven't floppy desc dirive you can slipstream (integrate) SATA ACHI drivers into windows xp cd by lnite program (read more about, it just type it in google.com you'll get several topics).

note : in both case you have to make manual format (not quick format )

if you make NTFS quick format option you will get the blue screen screen with error

Then you can get you drivers easly

you will get all what you need about you drives

any other questions I'm at your services

my regards / Ahmed

How to set up dual boot for two hard drives?


My freind, you can boot from two hdd inside the same computer. You can only boot from the primary HDD. What you need to do is install both Windows 7 and XP on the primary hdd in different partitions. Then when you boot the system it will give you the option for booting to both XP and 7. You dont even need the secondary hdd unless you are looking to have more storage space.

I upgraded my hp pavilion zd8000 to 2GB of ram. When I try to load windows XP, I get a can not format disk error. I removed 1 GB of memory and added 250 K in it?s place and everything installs and runs OK....


what service pack are you running ? if you have service pack 3 installed you can not reinstall the OS period , you'll have
to remove the service pack 3 and go back to service pack 2
ram and the HDD don't have any connection with the OS
you can try switching out the ram to another computer for
testing and for checking the DIMM slots on your computer
if its a notebook there will be only 2 slots if its a PC you may
have 4 check your manual for 1234 configuration they never
go as 1234 its usually 1324 , windows XP 32 bit edition will only
hold 3072 MB of Ram while the 64 bit edition will hold up to 8
gigabytes .
