XP and W7 help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Okay I have W7 on ym msata to make it easier to just install the XP onto my dual partitioned SSD where I want my XP and my W7 on. now the thing is is that my XP version is for benchmarking only and it's stripped way down. I keep getting 0x000007b error from BSOD and I can't find a solution for my Z77 board. is there any way to get this thing running on this mobo?

I just need XP for benchmarking that's all I need it for since it makes them run faster.

Please help me lol. This is why I hate software tongue.gif

Are you getting the BSOD while Windows XP is starting?

It's probably because your Sata is set to AHCI.

You change this to IDE in the BIOS but I dont recommend you do this because you will have to reinstall W7 and it will disable TRIM (SSD feature than expands it's life span and makes it faster over time).

AHCI mode (Advanced Host Controller Interface) is a SATA mode that provides superior performance and some extra abilities that IDE mode does not have.

 

Try installing XP again after doing this:

 

  1. In the UEFI BIOS, click the Advanced tab (that is, click the tab just to the right of the Ai Tweaker tab that's called "Advanced")
  2. Go into "SATA Configuration"
  3. Change "SATA Mode Selection" to "IDE"
  4. Press F10 to save and exit
  5. Attempt to install XP

 

If this works, then you will have to manually switch this back and forth every time you want to switch from Windows 7 to XP.  You can certainly switch Windows 7 over to IDE mode by making a simple change in Windows 7's Registry and I can show you how to do it, but I'll leave that up to you.  It would reduce your drive performance a little, but at least you wouldn't have to remember to switch to IDE mode when you want to use XP, and you wouldn't have to remember to switch back over to AHCI mode when you want to go back to Windows 7.

is that really the only way to install XP?
