STOP: 0x0000007B when installing windows on Asus Motherboard

  1. Asus A8N-SLi Mobo
    Athlon 3200+
    2x WD 36.7GB SATA HDDs
    1GB RAM

    - Enabled NVRAID in BIOS using channel 1 and 2 on the controller
    - Setup a RAID array using the two HDDs (showing as 'Healthy' stripe, bootable)
    - Restart the comp and begin installing windows
    - Press F6 to use the asus RAID drivers
    - Drivers install fine and windows continues to load it's files
    - The message "windows is starting" pops up, followed shortly by STOP: 0x0000007B.

    Another post on here with the same problem on a different Asus motherboard suggests that the problem could be with my CD-ROM drive - allegedly there is a problem with Asus's IDE controller. Is this true, and is there a way for me to get around this problem?

    Many thanks in advance, Steve.

    This page devoted to troubleshooting STOP errors might be of some help:

    Have you checked the Asus site for any updates to the chipset drivers?

    I'd recommend checking out the ASUS site to see if there are any upgrades to the BIOS.
