Hey guys,

I just built a new system for the first time. I am trying to install XP but am getting the error 'stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78D663C, )xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)' about 2 minutes into the installation.

The system is:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k
Mobo: AsRock z77 Pro4-M
RAM: 8G kit corsair vengeance 1600Mhz
HDD: Seagate 2TB(ST2000DM001)(7200RPM)
GPU: Zotec gtx275
PSU: Corsair vx550w
ODD: Lite-On SATA DVD RW

This could be a driver issue - is this right? How am I to get new drivers when all I can access is my UEFI setup screen, in which I do not see any option for driver updates, maybe I'm going crazy?

I don't know what to do! I've been sitting here scratching my head for hours.

Welcome to Geeks to Go

See this please

You may have slipstream the XP installation CD to SP3, with the necessary drivers, or enter BIOS setup and configure hard drive to eliminate need for sata driver if that option exists

Your first and simplest option is to use a setting in BIOS Setup for the SATA port. Set its mode to IDE (or PATA) Emulation, you lose a few of the advantages of the SATA but perhaps that will not matter a great deal

If you wish to use the slipstreaming this tutorial explains it all
Obviously ignoring the Toshiba aspect

or alternatively here is the same from the nlite site

OR but I can assure you it is not the easiest option if you have the capability to boot from a usb drive you can do this

Thank you for the reply master!

I will start with option 1 :)

BIOS Setup for the SATA port. Set its mode to IDE (or PATA) Emulation, you lose a few of the advantages of the SATA but perhaps that will not matter a great deal


Do I only lose a few of the advantages of the SATA during this installation and then I can change the SATA port mode back to how it was?

You cannot change back - if you do windows will not boot.


There is a way, but generally speaking it is hardly worthwhile and as you say it is a new build, although I have NOT examined the build, I presume you have built it for Windows 7 compatability and as support for XP SP3 finishes in April 2014, you will possibly be considering 7 in the not too distant future.
