RE: 0x0000007b stop upon Windows install after adding new hdd's

Posted: 02-23-2009, 09:54 PM
Windows XP installation lacks SATA and RAID drivers, thus, upon restart into
the initial setup GUI the NT boot loader fails to detect the hard drive
holding the root file system and produces the 0x0000007B
(INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) BSOD instead. There are two potential fixes I
identified so far, none of which I'd tried yet:

(1) Go in the BIOS settings and enable IDE/EIDE emulation for the hard
drives, or

(2) Use tools such as NLite/VLite ( to
include suitable SATA drivers into the XP installation utility.

If anyone could confirm, that'd be great. I still have to recover from the
lost night following Vista removal & re-installation, not quite in the mood
for another try.
