    Some news: I found and downloaded file called txtsetup.oem.
    After that I could step one more in blue screen, but it writes again_: the file scsidrv.sys is corrupted.
    I really dont have idea how to continue. Thats not true that that all these files are not on the motherboard installation cd/I have motherboard Gigabyte ga-m52l-s3
    Can somebody help?

  • nveronika Aug 31, 2008

    I tried several drivers by pressing F6, but nothing.So when the setup ptompt me to press "S", i didnt do it, just continued installation. And when I had to choose where to install windows I could see my new harddisk and chose it!!!!!What is it now? It is done?
    It´s suspicious because the windows froze today morning when i switched the computer on, just at the beginning of loading it.And I couldnt do anything, I restarted it several times, always the same.Then I put windows cd in, went to repair , then it worked. Today in the afternoon the computer restarted /I dindnt touch anything/.
    Now everything is working, but I worry, I already installed a lot of programs on it, I dont want to start everything from beginning.
    What do you thing about this?

  • nveronika Aug 31, 2008

    Now this happened:After I installed a program, I restarted the computer.Everythin was loading normally, but I got a report:
    The system has recovered from a serious error.

  • nveronika Aug 31, 2008

    I really downloaded the driver ffrom manufacturer´s page, from the link you gave, but maybe I didnt choose the right one. Beacause now I tried it again and after extracting I have 2 more files then before. And I tried F6 again and it WORKED! It promt me to choose between:
    nvidia Raid Class Driver and
    nvidia nForce storage controller.
    Then I pressed F3, I didn want to contunue before I dint ask you again.
    Can I do something now without reinstalling windows?
    Thanks again!

  • nveronika Sep 01, 2008

    Thanks for your help,

    map9966!Although my computer is working well now, I will reinstall windows with setting up the sata drive - now correctly, I hope.
    Thanks again

Is this XP or Vista? At one time SATA was new to XP and you needed a floppy with the setup instructions that came with the drive.XP has since caught up with these setup instructions.Just run setup without the floppy.Just let the floppy request time out. I can't remember the last time I had to load the floppy and I have loaded lots of Windows O.S's. If you are using RAID you should use the software that came with your board.

Hi nveronika,
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):
& (Revision 1.0 which uses the NVIDIA® nForce 520LE Chipset):
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!

    Hi nveronika, error message "System has recovered from a serious error". This is most likely generated by a software issue.

    If you did not setup your drive by using the manufacture's bootable floppy utilities software or bootable CD software it is still possible there is a FAT = File Allocation Table issue.

    A FAT issue can cause the error you saw & can continue to freeze your system, or load windows slowly. Eventually corrupting your files to the point windows will fail. (I always use the software provided by the manufacture to set up every IDE or serial ATA SATA hard disk drive when repairing a system before installing windows).

    There is an order of installing software when I work on a drive & over the years I have found this works every time. After installing windows (Fresh). Install all motherboard drivers. Register your windows by phone. Update your windows through windows update service, rebooting when windows request to. Continue to update windows up to SP2. When installing .Net framework, only install one at a time & stay in order.

    Do not install SP3. (YET). Install you're antivirus software & update it. Run a full system scan. Install programs link, java, directx 10, quick time & printer software directly from the internet. Restarting inbetween each install. Create a system restore point.

    Continue this until you have installed everything. Run you're system for a couple days as you normally would. If everything seems fine create another system restore point before installing SP3. (None of this will matter if you refuse to run the manufactures setup/utility software). If I thought this wasn't a very important thing to do I would haven't have suggested it.

    Hi nveronika, you want to pick the nvidia nForce storage controller. (Do not forget to remove the floppy disk when windows finishes).

    Sorry, you must re-install windows fresh.

    I think you are a wee bit confused about setting up the new SATA hard disk drive up before installing windows. When I mention go to the manfactures site & download the bootable SATA software (I meant the "Name" of your SATA drive).

    Lets say you're new SATA drive is a Seagate drive. I suggest you go to Seagates web site & read how to download & create a bootable floppy disk so you can format your SATA drive. Read through this Seagate link;

    DiscWizard Starter Edition diskette. (Two floppy disks needed).

    This is what I mean when I say go to the manfactures web site. Every SATA & IDE hard disk drive manufacture allows you to download & create bootable floppy software to setup your new SATA drive. The bootable software also allows you to turn on & off other drive features that windows can not do.

I have an asus p5rd1-vm motherboard. I found problems on installing windows xp using sata hdd. Please help me to install windows xp2 as i am not using floppy drive.

The Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver. You need a SATA driver of a floppy disk or turn off SATA native driver in the BIOS.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to Install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-
I suggest you install SP3 (service pack 3) rather than SP2, it contains the latest bug fixes. The SP3 cannot be installed from a floppy, it can be downloaded from Microsoft, it is a large file approx 300Mb, I suggest you install it from a CD if you can borrow one.

you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Can't install windows XP on my KN8 ultra

I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here -
Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.

How to install window XP without floppy disk on asus P5RD1-VM

Hi sheikhun, just ignore windows F6 to add special SATA drivers. Install windows, when finished use your Asus CD and install missing drivers from CD. Than run windows updates.
You should not have a problem, if while in your bios your SATA drive is shown in the main menu. Than check the Boot section of bios. The boot order should be.
CDROM drive 1st. SATA drive 2nd.
Disconnect any other hard drives data cable while installing windows. When you finish installing windows & installing the drivers from the CD & windows updates you can shut down the PC & reconnect the data cables you may have disconnected.

If your bios does not see your serial ATA SATA drive than your SATA onboard controller is defective. Return to Asus for replacement/repair.
