win xp errors with sata drives

  1. I've got a 0x07b error that has come up several times. First time was with an asrock p4v88 motherboard (witch blew up - don't know why) now I have an asus p4v8x-mx, intel 3.2mhz, 2gb ram, usb 2.0 dvd-rw drive, 2 ide cd/dvd drives. I just got this error THIS time when I used a different windows install disk. The first install cd returned no error but the cd key I have, that used to work does not work any more. I contacted Microsoft and got a new cd key but that doesn't work either. I am at a loss for ideas, Microsoft suggested I buy a new install cd to a tune of $199.00. I don't think so!! edfam sugested to use a different ide socket but I'm using a usb dvd-rw drive. I think I just need the proper cd key. Is there a time when a cd key works then for some reason stops working? The message I get when using my original cd is "the product id is invalid", but not why. any help would be great. Thanks tduck1.

    if your windows is legitimate, then you should not have issues.
    If not, do not ask for help here.
