Question about Intel Motherboard
I recently purchased a new 250 GB WD SATA HD, and I am trying to install it on my Combo Z. The support disk that came with the board was stolen from me so I downloaded all the support files from ASRock's site. I created the floppy for use to install SATA RAID drives with XP. I load the CD and boot from it and press F6 so that I can choose to use the RAID drivers provided by ASROCK (Windows is unable to see the HD if I do not provide the driver manually). When the installation asks for the driver, I put in the floppy with the drivers. I then get an error telling me that the first line in the txtsetup.oem file is invalid. I have been fighting this thing for a week. I have another WD SATA 80 GB drive as well. I cannot seem to get either to be seen. HELP PLEASE! Help me please! I want to install windows on my new Sata harddisk. I copied the NC61SXP file to floppy and insterted it when it was needed with F6. But its written that: The file txtsetup.oem could not be found. what can I do now?
HI.. please specify the ASRock motherboard model, check whether it is using which chipset as SATA Controller... ICH6 or ICH7 or ICH8 or ICH9
ICH5/6 Sata Raid drivers
ICH6/7/8 Sata Raid drivers

SOURCE: Sata hd, installing windows
First things first. Find the name of you're SATA hard disk drive.
Please go to the manufacture's web site & download the floppy drive setup/utilities bootable software or creat a bootable CD from the manufactures site. Boot the system with their software & setup you're hard disk drive which will run in a DOS like window. (This should resovle the blue screen issue).
There are two different revision for the motherboard GA-M52l-S3
(Revisions, 2.0 uses the NVIDIA® GeForce 6100 / nForce 430 chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2818
& (Revision 1.0 which uses the NVIDIA® nForce 520LE Chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2634
Which is you're motherboard? Once you find the correct motherboard you can download the the needed software directly from the web site & create the correct floppy disk needed when pressing the F6 key during windows installation. If you still get an error message try another fresh floppy disk. (Corruption of files to a floppy usually mean the floppy drive is dirty or bad or the floppy disk is bad). It is also possible that the data cable to the floppy drive is loose or defective. Downloading directly from Gigabyte is suggested over using the CD.
Good luck nveronika!
