          Windows XP setup can’t find hard drive (STOP: 0x0000007B)

          If your Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive is set to AHCI mode in BIOS and you install Windows XP without using an F6 driver, Windows setup is likely to fail, reporting that it cannot find any hard drives. You may also get the error "STOP: 0x0000007B".



          To resolve this problem, change the drive mode in BIOS to IDE - or use the F6 driver diskette during Windows XP setup (if your SATA drive supports AHCI).

          To change the drive mode:


          During boot, enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2.
          Depending on your board, either:
          Go to the Configuration > SATA Drives menu
          Set Configure SATA as to IDE

          Go to the Advanced > Drive Configuration menu
          Set ATA/IDE Mode to Native.
          Press F10 to Save and Exit.


          i hope it solves ur problem.
