    Intel SSD 540s + Windows XP / SP3 / 32 bit

    Relon

      Hello

      I have a very simple question.

      Can I install Windows XP in the IDE or AHCI mode on the Intel SSD 540s ?

      It will work on 540s ???

      My motherboard Asus P8Z68 Deluxe has an integrated Intel SATA III / 6Gb controller.

      I am currently using the Intel SSD 320 160 Gb and it works well, but I would like to move to a higher speed.

      I tested SSD Kingston HyperX savage and its unfortunately incompatible with windows XP.

      Windows XP is still my favorite.

       

      thank you for any answer

          Hello Relon,

          The Intel® SSD 540s Series was not certified for Windows XP* as this operating system is no longer within our scope of validation.

          Because of this, we cannot guarantee that the drive will be compatible with Windows XP* SP3. However, if you were to try the following article may be of help:

          Best regards,

              Hello

               

              I think, im not crazy.

              Situacion analysis is as follows.

              I see a bug before starting the installation winxp BSOD stop 0x0000007B

               

              Your recommendations.....

               

              During boot, enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2.

              Depending on your board, do one of the following:

              Go to the Configuration > SATA Drives menu, set Configure SATA to IDEGo to the Advanced > Drive Configuration menu, set ATA/IDE Mode to Native

              Press F10 to Save and Exit

               

              The firs problem

               

              This advice no effect. All combinations of BIOS SATA settings i passed.

              If I change BIOS to IDE,AHCI or RAID mode, the error still continues. By the way i still set to IDE mode and work fine.

               

              Next your recommendations.....

               

              Using F6

              This option displays in the status line and lets you use a computer manufacturer's mass storage controller driver. Near the beginning of Windows Setup, Windows pauses briefly and displays the following prompt:

              Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver.

              For instructions on using F6, refer to F6 Installation Method.

               

              Next problem

               

              Everywhere a file is missing from your links “TXTSETUP.OEM

              This file ( TXTSETUP.OEM ) is crucial for booting the FDD/F6 driver

               

              I searched the internet. unfortunately no recommendation

              I know this procedure very well. This way I installed 1000x server os, linux

              If intel controller isnt compatible with Intel hdd its big problem.

               

              Can you give me a precise link where to download the correct F6/FDD boot loader ?

               

              thanks

               

               

              Hell

              thanks

                "Windows XP is still my favorite."

                 

                Well, it may be your favourite, but it is not supported.

                To avoid situations like this, and to be able to enjoy the use and performance of your 540 SSD, and save countless hours of frustration, do yourself a huge favour and upgrade to W7 or W10.

                 

                Windows XP has not been supported since April 2014.  It is time to move on and to stop clinging to the past.

                  Hello

                  This is not the answer, but the excuse.
                  This isnt an incompatibility just about the correct bootloader.

                  A single purpose thing ? !!!!

                  Its necessary to accurately declare it !!!!! Compatibility only one OS )))))

                  The true is product already nobody buy.

                    I am not going to debate the issue.  XP is not supported. Period.

                     

                    How many cell phones have you purchased or upgrade in the past 15 years?  It is time for you to get past XP.

                     

                    I am no longer following this thread.

                      This is a big debate !!!!!!!!!!

                      Do you understand me what i say !!!!!!!!!!!!!

                       

                      Intel SATA III controller not supporting Intel SSD SATA III

                       

                      Yes, its time to return Intel disc to the dealer. I buy the competition.

                       

                      Do you interpret Intel official position ?

                        Hello Relon,

                        The problem is that Windows XP* doesn't have native SATA support. We don't provide Windows XP* drivers as they're embedded on most recent operating systems.

                        We recommend checking with your motherboard manufacturer for the availability of these files.

                        Best regards,
