    How to install WinXP with SATA drivers on the DH67BL board?

    polomora

      Hello,

       

      I've just finished building ny system, and want to install WinXP, as a means of upgrading to Windows 7. I can't find a way to get the right AHCI drivers to use with the board. I only want to installl the SATA drivers; I don't want to use RAID. In the board's BIOS, I ensured that AHCI is enabled and RAID is disabled.

       

      I went to the board's XP driver page here:

      http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+6+Series+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+DH67BL

      This page's RAID: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver STOR_F6_32_10.1.0.1008_PV.exe file only seems to provide drivers for RAID configurations. I tried installing the drivers at WinXP installation using the floppy/F6 option, but only RAID driver options appeared on the screen. When I tried all of these, I got the 0x0000007B BSOD, blocked.

       

      After searching further, I found this page, which includes XP drivers for the Series 6 chipset used by the board:

      http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Chipsets&ProductLine=Desktop+Chipsets&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+6+Series+Chipset

      The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology iata_enu.exe file only provides the drivers that can be installed after the WinXP has been installed. A bit chicken and egg, blocked again.

       

      I've done this before, with a Dell laptop, and that went very smoothly. I don't understand what I should do.

       

      I've verified that the hardware is OK by installing Ubuntu Linux, which succeeded without any problems.

       

      Can anyone help?

       

      Thanks,

      Paul
