SATA XP Install -bsod

Asus P5vd2x motherboard
April 20, 2010 at 18:13:18
Specs: Windows 2000
I have run my ASUS P5VD2-X under Win 2000 - Problems. Trying to update to XP.

Configuration is:

Pentinum Core2 Duo E6420
WD3200AAJS SATA Disk - on SATA internal slot 1 - NTFS with 2 dynamic partitions
ASUS EN7300GS Vidio Card

When I try to upgrade using an OEM Windows XP, all goes well in setting up the files. But on the re-start for the install I get the bsod - STOP :0x0000007b after the XP set-up screen.
This is after I have used f6 to install VIA Raid drivers and the JMicron driver. Checked - No virus/ckhdsk. BIOS was updated to the 501 version.

BIOS setting tap dance : disabled/enabled the JMircon controller, PCI/External JMircon toggel, Local drive toggle IDE/SATA.

I know this is probably an out-of-date question, but has anyone experienced this problem?

Why are you updating rather than doing a clean install? You don't have to install the SATA drivers immediately. You can set the SATA controllers to IDE mode, install XP, then install the drivers after the fact. You can re-enable SATA/AHCI mode later.

Licensing considerations. To move this computer from Win 2000 to Win 7, my plan was to do a quick upgrade to XP and then move on to Win 7. Now I am stuck with a failed XP upgrade....

STOP 0x0000007B (0xF78DA63C, 0x00000034....)

Here is what I have tried to date:

Virus Scan of entire system with updates current
All combinations of the BIOS JMicron / SATA settings
Load of JMicron and VIA Drivers on re-boot (f6)
BIOS upgrade with CMOS reset
NTFS partitions converted from Basic to Dynamic
Removal of all USB devices

Next I will try removing the IEEE 1394 card.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Then start by doing a clean install of Windows 7 using its disc and when prompted insert the XP disc to get the upgrade license and installation going.

ASUS help desk just informed me that this board does not have the drivers necessary to run Windows 7.

However I still need to move the system up to XP, so any help would be appreciated !!!

Refer back to response 1 above.
You should have done the windows 7 compatibility scan first and you would have known already.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I understand your comment Fingers! Thanks!

My first mistake was in letting this computer, and it's predecessor, run nicely in the corner all these years.

Since Microsoft's Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor will not run on Win 2k, I run a third party Win 7 compatibility test, which verified that the hardware was capable of running Win 7. Unfortunately, I did not think to look into the driver availability issue.

So I guess a XP rebuild is in order.
