    I've heard there were problems installing XP on a sata drive and you have to install something, but could someone point me in the right direction, right now I am getting the blue screen of death whenever I try to install windows.

    Here are my specs:
    Case: Antec Nine Hundred - Gaming Case with 200mm Top Fan
    Sound: Philips ?
    M-board: Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core
    Power: Hiper 580W Type-R Modular PSU SLI/CrossFire Certified - Blue
    GFX: nVIDIA GeForce 7300 256mb DDR2
    HARD DRIVE: Seagate 400GB SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache
    RAM: Kingston 1GB DDR 400MHz/PC3200 (KVR400X64C3A/1G) CL3 Unbuffered 2.6V x2


    The error I am getting is:


    Could someone please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    I have XP on quite a few computers with SATA drives. As long as you have the correct drivers , it works fine.

    Here is some information that may help:

    I went out today and got a floppy disk, after loading the sata drivers from the Asus website to the floppy disk I got the BSOD.

    I guess them drivers aren't working?
