I’m doing a fresh install of Windows XP on a new computer. I do not have a bootable XP CD but I do have a licensed version. In the past, I have used my Win 98 CD to boot, format a drive (FAT32), and manually kick off the WINNT.EXE from i386 on the XP CP to start the XP installation. This is SP0. The setup process then allows me to format a drive to NTFS. The Problem: I now have the following Motherboard and Hard Drive Gigabyte GA-8I945GZME-RH Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive I can boot using the Win98 CD and get through the first part of the WinXP setup (where it copies the setup files to the HD). I can access the C Drive and see all of the WinXP setup files and the $WINNT$ directories. When the setup program asks to reboot from the HD – Setup starts then gives a blue screen with: “Unmountable Boot Volume” I’m not sure what to do next. Is this a problem with my SATA drive? Do I need to press F6 and load a SATA driver during the setup routine? If so, where do I attain this driver, because Gigabyte doesn’t seem to carry a non-RAID SATA driver? I’ve heard you can configure "native" Serial ATA controllers to emulate IDE for the Windows Setup – but I don’t know if I have “native” controllers or this option or how to proceed with doing it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
