I just gutted my old system and replaced it with DP55KG board, Intel 870. I installed the XP with SP3 on a single 500G SATA drive. Once I felt confortable all was well with the XP install, including all the patches and such, I added my old SATA drives 1 at a time. I manage to add the 7th drive successfully, composing of the 5 black ports and utilizing the 2 blue ports. In addition to all of this, I have 2 SCSI drives separate controller. I ensured XP booted successfully with not issues. However, when I attach the final drive to remaining black port, Windows XP would boot up to the Windows screen, I see the blue screen of death(exception error), then the system would reboot over and over in a boot loop. If I disconnect the last drive appearing to be causing this and use another drive that successfully rebooted while connected, the same thing happens. It does not appear to be a drive specific issue.
I cannot believe there is an order I need to attach the drives or I cannot use all the connectors at once.
Any suggestions is welcome,
attach that hard disk on second last port i mean remove any of one hard drive if its still not work that hdd may contain virus or bad sector that can not be loaded
if that hdd contains any operating system than format it first and then try it
