Intel D975XBX boot order IDE first?

Post by TNorri » Thu, 26 Oct 2006 08:17:58


I have built a new machine (MB Intel D975XBX 1351 BIOS, HDs, CD/DVD, PS...)
and thought I would move the old WinXP Pro OS HD from the old machine to the
new one as added storage and I could copy My Docs to new Sata drives. Both
machines running WinXP Pro. However, when I plug in the IDE HD on the IDE
connector I get the Stop: 0x0000007B (0xf789E528, 0x0000034, 0x0000000,
0x0000000) error. It does not say 'inaccessable_boot_device' which I see
when I search the groups for help on this Stop: 0x0000007B error after
repeated Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)Partition(1)\Windows\....text. What info I
have found in the search tells me to match components to orig system but
that doesn't fit my predicament. The other search info on Multi(0)... talks
about changing the boot.ini file. It appears, even when I have the CD/DVD
(on the IDE channel) as last in boot order in BIOS, the machine is still
trying to boot from the old WinXP Pro HD that is set up as slave on the IDE
channel. Then I get the Stop: 0x0000007B error and never get to where it
boots from the SATA drive 0. How can I get the machine to boot from the
SATA drive 0 first?
Thanks for your help!

By default SATA or RAID is not enabled,read the owners manual..Thier are about
3 settings in the BIOS to enable SATA,advanced chipset usually 2.You dont
edit
the .ini file.For more info go
to: http://www.yqcomputer.com/
Although this infos around RAID it still gives the info you need.

Thanks for pointing me to the articles, that helps me understand a little
better...

Since my objective is to transfer the data on the IDE drive to the SATA
drives and then use the IDE HD for additional storage (don't want to boot
from it, etc.), how about this approach: Put the old machine back together,
reconnect it to my network, copy all data from the IDE HD over to the new
machine SATA drives and then boot the old machine from a floppy and reformat
the IDE drive in the old machine (without an OS). Can I then put the IDE HD
on the IDE channel in the new machine? Or will it balk at any HD on the IDE
channel, whether it has an operating system on it or not?
Thanks!

Doesn't the BIOS setup have a user setting that allows you to select
which hard disk to boot from?
When you hit F10 during POST, does the SATA disk appear as a bootable
option?
