    That ought to be AHCI anyways..but from the motherboard manual AHCI is Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is an interface specification that allows the storage driver to enable advanced Serial ATA features such as Native Command Queuing and hot plug. Now you know.

    You get installed yet? Just checking in, seems everyone confused you so I thought I better ask in case you are still unable to install your OS

    thnx for the interest, but unfortunately i am so far unsuccessful. i have messed around with all of the BIOS and then....nothing, same blue screen with error e7.

    apparently my floppy with memtest on it was not formatted for my drive, so i was unable to check for errors in the memory yesterday.

    i was told by a coworker to put the XP Pro SP3 on a disk and then install put it into my comp, which i'll try to do today.

    Any other options? Maybe a bad component/mobo? Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm kinda leaning towards a memory problem you could try with one stick, then the other testing with mentest.

    This is probably a long shot but you could test your HDD with Western Digital DOS Diagnostics tool rule out the HDD as the problem...

    Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (CD)

    There is also a floppy version if you require it.

    Hello Saxman!
    There is nothing wrong with your MB. I know exactly what your problem is, you're using a PCI-E card and not a pci. And it ironic that you have the same card i had when i first built my pc. But getting back to your problem, window XP pro SP1 doesn't support PCI-E card. If i'm not mistaken your BSOD occured at the point where it said, now installing window,correct? I don't remember exactly what the error message was but located in that error code e7 including a bunch of jiberish it also mention something about pci,correct? If you look closely, you'll see it if not don't worry about it. Anyway, let continue...the reason you saw that blue screen was because XP SP1 doesn't recognize your card. It was trying to find a pci or agp and because you had a PCI-E card in there it gave you that blue screen. So to fix the problem...you'll need a window XP pro SP2 because it WILL NOT WORK! with a SP1. And if you don't have an XP SP2 then you can slipstream your SP1 with a SP2. I believe Conner also mentioned this in his post. And if you not sure how to do it there a really good tutorial on the htt://www.theeldergeek.com website. I use ISobuster and Nero to slipstream mine. And by the way, if you decide to use the slipstream method make sure your xp pro sp1 is legit if not than the process will fail. And as far as your BIOS goes i would suggest setting everthing on default for now until you can install the OS sucessfully. And on the your hard drive i'd just set it to disable instead of the ACHI or the Sata mode. Because that what i have it set on currently, and i don't have any problem with it. I hope this help

    + 1 ^^^

    Your XP install disk must be SP1 or greater to install to a PCIE Motherboard. If you are not sure of how to tell what version your install disk is please check using the method I mention in this post >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ep45...43/#post298226

    Nlite also works great to slipstream. If you do find out your disk is PRE-SP1 and you need help slipstreaming then please do let me know and I will post you a few guides on doing so.

    Or you could borrow or download a XP SP3 install disk if you can.

    Thanks guys, but it appears it was my Install CD not having the SP2 or greater. But I just ran memtest and guess what, 191 errors within the first 6 tests.

    My next question, what's the best/stable memory for this mobo running Windows XP Pro and eventually Windows 7???

    Thanks
