Question about Highpoint Technologies RocketRAID 133 (HPT372A) ATA Controller

1 Answer

RocketRaid 133 Installation

After installing RocketRaid 133 and restarting, the bios can see the adapter and the HDDs, but it is unable to boot OS (WinXP). I get the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). I tried multiple times, reconnecting the hardware, different PCI slots, even a second adapter (modifying two computers), with no luck. I really would like to get this up and running. Thanks.

Hi all! I have a 4 year old PC with 2 HD's , one is IDE and the other one which is newer is SATA. Once in while i get this boot error saying NTDLR is missing. What the computer does is resets the hard...


You question is not very clear. When you set the BIOS, you say it works well for several weeks. Does it change again automatically? If this is the case, replace the CMOS battery. (Usual battery model is CR2032).
If you have WinXP installed on both HDDs, set to view hidden and system files, and copy the NTLDR file from SATA disk to the IDE disk. If your NTLDR files goes missing from time to time, it is definitely a virus. Use a reputed AntiVirus software (I recommend Kaspersky).
If it is a boot virus, - first backup your files to CDs. - Remove partitions from both HDDs.
- Reset the BIOS. - Restart the computer and install OS. - Install a good VirusGuard.

Unable to install XP OS to MSI lap top


Insert your installer to the lap top then try to change the boot up priority by entering the bios. Try to press del key while your lap top boot. If these deosn't wok try F1 or F2 thesame process. If you have enter the BIOS, look for the boot priority which includes the First Boot, 2nd Boot and 3rd boot. Change the 1st boot to CDROM and the 2nd boot to hardisk. Then save the changes by pressing F10. your PC will reboot and it will direct you to the OS installation.

I receive this message when I'm booting my CISNET computer. NTLDR is compressed Press ctrl+alt+del to restart But when I do so, it comes back to the same page. Somebody please, help me!!!!!


Your system is probably trying to boot from a USB drive. ZT systems for some reason will put USB hard drives ahead of drive 0 in the boot sequence. You can correct this in the BIOS.
Another problem I had with mine is that the BIOS would not pick up the USB drives on a cold boot even though everything went fine with a restart. Cycling the power on the external after boot up solves this problem.

Installing a 2 port ATA-133 IDE adapter card to a desktop w/a hard drive & DVD


I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.
