Yeah that was so true for me after creating an IDE image with Norton Ghost it wouldn't boot into a SATA hard disk. But I got another question, what drivers shall I uninstall or even install before saving the ghost image?

Hi there

I am experiencing a similar problem with an XP boot issue.

My motherboard got fried along with cpu and ram etc. so i've built a new machine.

The problem is that i have an IDE drive and the new motherboard has only sata connectors.

I bought a SATA to IDE converter but XP inst booting. I get the following BSOD error :

*** STOP: 0x000007b (0xf78d2524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x0000000)

After some investigating i stumbled accross this thread and I'm now suspecting that the problem is with XP and the HDD controller thinking its connected via IDE when it's actually connected via SATA (through the converter)

Could i use sysprep without ghosting the drive to another HDD? i would like to keep the current drive (cos i dont have a SATA drive)

p.s If I need to post any further info i will, i just want to first make sure i'm posting this in the correct thread...

Can I use

One possible problem may be that Windows XP doesn't have SATA drivers by default, they may have been added in an update, im not sure. there is a fix for this, you have to use a program to slipstream the sata drivers into the XP disk, which means makeing a copy with something like imgburn i think thats what its called.

You can use nLite to slipstream the drivers. The other suggestion is to check the SATA mode (RAID, IDE, AHCI) etc. This is one of the major causes of Bluescreens. I would recommend setting this to IDE if the option is available.

Your other option is to get a PCI > IDE Raid Card.
