  1. BSOD with SATA hard drives- Viamraid.sys

    Hello all- I just built a pc with these specs-
    Socket 775 P4 3ghz hyper threading psu
    Asrock 775v88 motherboard
    dual 1gb memory
    1x40gb seagate sata hard drive
    1x200gb maxtor sata hard drive
    dvd, dvd-r, floppy drives
    external usb cable modem
    Windows xp installed and updated successfully on the 40gb drive, but if I try to format the 200gb drive, or try run any programs from the 40gb drive, or even sometimes at bootup, i get a bluse screen with the following info-
    Stop:0x000000D1 (0x00000030,0x0000007,0x00000000,0xF77909A0)
    Viamraid.sys-address F77909A0 base at F7786000, Datestamp 4063e304
    When I installed xp, I pressed F6 to install the drivers from the Asrock disk, which gave me the same blue screen, and then downloaded the sata drivers from Via.
    I also tried removing each memory stick, and rebooting but still the same thing happened!!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :)

    This is almost the exact same sort of issue I am having, was there any resolve ever?

    Disable "enhanced SATA" (or similar option) in your BIOS.
