VIA Bus Master IDE Controller XP compatibility
Just finished upgrade of W2K to XP Pro, using the DVD from the MSDN Kit at work. We have a few extra licenses left, so I'm doing my home machine.
ABIT KT7 RAID, a little over 4 years old now.
Athlon 900 TBird
Got a message in the middle saying my VIA Bus Master IDE Controller driver did not pass the Windows Logo test for compatibility and they STRONGLY recommended not using it. I agreed and went on with the install.
Now when it did its first restart, I get the blues screen
A problem has been detected etc
STOP: 0x0000007B etc
At microsoft I find an article that gives as a possible cause -
Windows XP requires a miniport driver to communicate with the hard disk controller that is used to start your computer. If Windows XP does not supply a device driver for your controller or if Windows XP is using a corrupted or incompatible driver, you must replace the driver with a valid copy that is compatible with your controller and Windows XP.
Sounds like the driver I declined is needed, or its XP version. I can't find a driver at VIA that is clearly the one. And I don't know how to install it if I do find it.
