Even if there is no Yellow Mark, update the driver none the less. __________________ MemTest | IMGBurn | Seatools Drive Fitness | DataLifeguard |SeaFlash Rufus | Virus/Malware Help | PC running Thanksss March 10, 2008 grateway Hi andy does your xp install cd work correctly on another machine?

Make sure you definitely have the correct SATA/RAID drivers for your chipset. December 1, 2007 Works Great! When the installation got closer to the finish line, I received an error :- "line 0 of hivesft.inf is corrupted. this contact form and sorry for being such a n00b..
Thanks, Shuren March 7, 2008 Shuren Wang I downloaded a new version driver,and it works! I don't need Vista for anything.
