Turn the computer off.
Disconnect power from the IDE device.
Turn the computer on.
Enter BIOS-setup, and change the "boot-order", so that the SATA drive is the first to boot.
Boot it -- it should boot "normally".
Shutdown correctly.
Turn the computer off.
Reconnect the power to the IDE device.
Turn the computer on.
Enter BIOS-setup, and change the boot-order to give the SATA drive the highest priority.
Boot it -- it should boot "normally".

Sounds as if your hard drive may be bad. or you have a Bios conflict.

Check the jumpers on the drive to make sure they are right.

Stop:0x0000007b


Hi Jefferson,
  1. Did you just install or make a change to a hard drive controller? If so, there's a good chance that the change you made caused the STOP 0x0000007B error.

    Undo the change and test for the 0x7B blue screen error.

    Depending on what changes you made, some solutions might include:

  2. Verify that the SCSI chain is correctly terminated, assuming you're using SCSI hard drives in your computer. Incorrect SCSI termination has been known to cause STOP 0x0000007B errors.

    Note: Most home computers don't utilize SCSI hard drives.
  3. Verify that the hard drive is properly installed. An improperly installed hard drive could cause STOP 0x0000007B errors and other issues.
  4. Verify that the hard drive is configured properly in BIOS. The STOP 0x0000007B error could occur if the hard drive settings in BIOS are incorrect.
  5. Scan your computer for viruses. Certain viruses that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector can cause STOP 0x0000007B errors.

    Important: Make sure your virus scanning software is updated and configured to scan the MBR and boot sector.
  6. Update the drivers for your hard drive controller. If the drivers to your hard drive controller are outdated, incorrect, or corrupted then the STOP 0x0000007B error will likely occur.

    Note: If the STOP 0x0000007B error occurs during the Windows setup process and you suspect that the reason is driver related, be sure to install the latest hard drive controller driver from the manufacturer for use during the installation of the operating system.

    Note: This is a likely solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC0000034.
  7. Change the SATA mode in BIOS to IDE mode. Disabling some of the advanced features of SATA drives in BIOS could stop the STOP 0x0000007B error from showing up, especially if you're seeing it in Windows XP or during a Windows XP installation.

    Note: Depending on your BIOS make and version, SATA mode may be referred to as AHCI mode and IDE mode may be referred to as either Legacy, ATA, or Compatibility Mode.

    Note: While not a common solution, you may also want to try the reverse - see if IDE mode is selected in BIOS and if so change it to AHCI, especially if you see the STOP 0x0000007B error in Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista.
  8. Run chkdsk on your hard drive. If the boot volume is corrupted, the chkdsk command might repair the corruption.

    Important: You'll likely have to run chkdsk from the Recovery Console.

    Note: This will likely be the solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC0000032.
  9. Perform an extensive test of your hard drive. If your hard drive has a physical problem, one very likely situation is the STOP 0x0000007B error you're seeing.

    Replace the hard drive if the diagnostics you complete suggest that there is a hardware problem with the drive.
  10. Run the fixmbr command to create a new master boot record. A corrupted master boot record might be causing your STOP 0x0000007B error.

    Note: This will likely be the solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC000000E.
  11. Clear the CMOS. Sometimes the STOP 0x0000007B error is caused by a BIOS memory issue. Clearing the CMOS could solve that problem.
  12. Update your BIOS. In some situations, an outdated BIOS could cause a STOP 0x0000007B error due to incompatibilities with a hard drive controller.
  13. Update the hard drive controller's firmware if possible. Just as with the BIOS in the previous step, an incompatibility could be causing the 0x7B error and a firmware update from the manufacturer may correct the problem.
  14. Repair your Windows installation. If you've just replaced the motherboard in a computer without reinstalling Windows then this will likely fix your problem.

    Note: Sometimes a Windows repair will not fix a STOP 0x0000007B error. In those cases, a clean installation of Windows should do the trick.

    If you haven't just replaced your motherboard, a Windows reinstall probably will not fix your STOP 0x7B issue.
Hope this helps,
If you need further assistance please get back in touch and i'll see what else we can do.

Thanks,
Gary

INSTALLING WINDOWS XP ON A SATA HARD DRIVE


SATA HARD DRIVE ? XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
If enabling the SATA in the BIOS does not allow the computer to boot up with SATA hard drive then change the BIOS back to what it was previously.

Show blue screen and show error 0x0000007b during installation windows xp


I assume your trying to install windows xp on a somewhat newer computer. This will not work without some tweaking. The reason you are getting this error is due to the fact your computer most likely has a SATA drive as opposed to an IDE. Windows XP does not natively support SATA drives.
First thing you can try is go into your BIOS and change your hard drive to emulate IDE support (To get to BIOS, while the computer is booting you will need to press the key is asks for to enter setup/BIOS usually F1 F2 F10 or del)
Here's a video I found on youtube that explains it, you want yours set to IDE. After this is set, XP should install just fine.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVXXopxa7hg
The other option is to build a slipstream XP disc and integrate sata drivers into it so that you can install XP on a computer with sata. This is much more advanced and I would try to emulate IDE mode first.
Leave comments if you need additional assistance.

Blue screen when installing os


If you are trying to install the Windows XP from scratch on the computer, please BE SURE that you put the Hard Drive on "Compatibility" mode in BIOS, which was defaulted to "AHCI" (Compatibility is also known as IDE).

Otherwise, you will experience the "blue screen" issue. To change that setting, you need to do the following:
1. Press F2 when booting up the computer
2. Select 'Config', then 'Serial ATA (SATA)'
3. Change controller option to 'Compatibility' / 'IDE'

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

Xp installation problem


“No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting
