Install Issues 0x0000007b

    I have a HP pavillion that came with Vista and a recovery partition. Since I
    was not real happy with Vista, I decided to remove the recovery partition and
    made the jump to Win7Beta and had no issues. Due to some small compatability
    issues with some older games, I installed a second HD (smaller) and installed
    XP on it and had a dual boot system. All was good. I had planned on
    upgrading to win 7 however due to finanancial issues wasand will not be able
    to upgrade to win 7 any time soon so I decided to revert back to XP on my
    larger HD (that came with Vista installed).

    During the install, I'm getting the following error: Stop: 0x0000007B
    (0xf78d2524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

    I know the HD is good because I was able to reload win 7 to it and I know
    both XP install disks are good as I did a fresh insall on the smaller HD.

    From what I can tell, It's a driver issue with the HD Controller however how
    can I find one I can use during the install? According to Hitachi's website
    "Current operating systems, including Windows Vista, XP and 2000, and Mac OS
    X, already include pre-installed drivers for the hard disk drive itself. No
    additional drivers are required." so that is no help.

    What other options do I have?

    Thanks

    It means your boot drive is unavailabe.
    I suspect its a sata drive and as such you need to either amend your AHCI
    settings in the bios
    PS Unless winxp is sp1 or later a drive larger than 127gb may not be
    utilised in full

    "The "Stop 7B" error occurs when your configuration is missing a component
    that is required to boot your device. Examples of these components include
    the PCI bus and the IDE controller."

    What did you use to "install XP"?

    Thanks

    I've tried with both a CD and DVD drives, same result.

    there have been a couple of times where it made it to the "select a
    partition to install XP" only nothing was listed as a valid partition. Keep
    in mind that I have reinstalled Win7 on the hard drive and is currently
    working just fine.

    I'm still lost has to how to fix it.

    You need to supply the controller drivers to the Windows setup program,
    these drivers *MUST* be supplied on a floppy diskette or they must be
    incorporated (slipstreamed) into the Windows XP CD. The only other way
    around the problem is to change the hard drive mode in the BIOS.

    Thanks John and I just confimred via Hitachi's website that

    "Windows XP and Windows 2000 do not natively include drivers for SATA
    controllers (add-in or on-board), so you must install them during the
    installation of the operating system. The system, motherboard, or controller
    manufacturer usually supplies these drivers, either on a driver CD or
    downloadable from their web site. "

    "Note: the installation process specifically looks at the A: (floppy) drive
    for the updated drivers. This is a limitation imposed by the installation
    routine. You cannot load the drivers using any other media. "

    Since this is an SATA drive, and I do not have a floppy drive per the above
    info, It sounds like I either need to purchase a non SATA hardrive or
    purchase a floppy drive and install it. I'll need to think about this one
    but atleast I understand the issue now.

    Thanks

    If the computer has a floppy controller you can scrounge a floppy drive
    from another machine. Or you can simply slipstream the drivers to the
    Windows XP CD:

    Why not go into the BIOS screens, and set the controller to a non-AHCI
    operating mode ? Then retry the install.

    You don't say what Pavilion computer you have, but if there is an
    Intel chipset, the SATA interface options in the BIOS may include
    IDE, AHCI, RAID. For computers that ship with Vista or Win7, the
    manufacturer may have set the BIOS to AHCI. If you're installing
    WinXP and only running WinXP regularly on the computer, you can
    try "IDE", or at least try using something other than AHCI or
    RAID as your choice. Then you may get around the boot issue.
