Still can't get SATA support to work in XP (Resolved)

2008-08-11, 18:10 PM

I have everything working on my Lenovo Y510 except the SATA issue. Have updated the BIOS, have dual boot working with Vista and XP, Hotkeys working, Veriface working in Vista etc.

 

I tried deleting the controller drivers from the device manager but when I rebooted to XP in non-compatibility mode, I get a re-boot a couple of seconds after seeing the XP logo screen. I then re-booted in compatibility mode and WIN XP started searching for drivers and found everything. Still can't boot with SATA mode enabled though.

 

Any ideas?

You need to install XP with the SATA drivers either slipstreamed into a custom install CD, or you need a USB floppy drive and the SATA drivers on a floppy disk and press F6 when installing XP.

 

Either way, you need to install XP from scratch with that driver working from the get-go.

 

Written to you from a Y510 running XP with SATA drivers installed during installation...

Thanks. I tried creating a slipstreamed XP CD with service pack2 and all of the Lenovo hardware drivers but I guess the drivers did not slipstream correctly. I was not able to see the SATA drive during the part of the install where you create/format the partition, so I went ahead with the install with BIOS in compatibility mode.

 

I have in my hand a USB floppy that I just borrowed.  Which driver in the Lenovo hardware drivers is the one I need to point to when I press F6?

Dear tjkelly.

You must integrate only chipset drivers in DVD because all other drivers can perform errors during install.

Alos, installing in AHCI compability mode doesn't need anyfloppy, driver or else. Just insert install disk and folow instructions.

Thanks Skripatch.

 

When you refer to inserting the install disk do you mean the restoration disk that came with my Y510?

Since I haven't looked at that disk yet I wasn't aware that it had drivers for XP on it.

 

So, just so I can understand this are you instructing me to insert the restoration disk while booted up to WIN XP and follow the instructions? Then reboot the PC and set BIOS mode to SATA or non-compatibility?

If you need to reinstall not using compability mode you need to slipstream chipset drivers only.

 

To boot Win Xp in advanced mode after you installed it in compability mode you should boot in compability mode, delete drivers for disc controllers and reboot. During this reboot you must enter BIOS and change AHCI mode from compability to advanced.

I tried deleting the drivers from device manager but when I reboot in advanced mode I still get  a reset of the PC just after seeing the WIX XP screen.

Strange.

Try installing latest drivers and during reboot changing the mode.

Thanks for trying to help me. I can't explain it either.

 

Anyway I was successful this morning in creating a floppy with the Intel drivers on it and got XP reinstalled with SATA support.

I also made another CD slipstreamed with the same drivers and checked it out to make sure it would boot up with SATA support.
