I really need your help from you guys. Currently I’m facing problem to setup EEPC for my new laptop Dell Latitude E6420 and E6320. I'm using hard disk Hitachi- SATA 7200RPM and latest BIOS A04 version. For my new laptop I am using OS Window XP SP3. When I setup EEPC for my laptop this error comes out.
SATA Operation set to Raid On = Once log in, error is Resetting Hardware.. Starting Operating System..
SATA Operation set to ATA = Once log in, error is it just “Hang”
SATA Operation set to AHCI = Once log in, error is blue screen when entering Windows
I had performed a lot of method to make it running, I had installed EEPC within new laptop and enter BIOS and try to do changes on the SATA operation and then the error come out.
After that, I format new laptop, enter BIOS to changed the SATA operation mode to ATA and then deployed EEPC. I have already performed bot method but still getting the same issues.
use ACHI mode - you simply need to install the right drivers into your OS image to cure the BSOD problem. So, format the laptop, make sure it's in ACHI mode, and then install your OS giving it the appropriate drivers from Dell etc.
You don't say what version of EEPC you are trying to use though?
I'm using the latest EEPC version 5.2.9. May I know is it this method working? Last time, we had format my laptop and set to AHCI mode but blue screen when entering Windows. May I know what actually might caused of this issue? Do have experience play around with the latest BIOS version A04.
what caused the BSOD entering windows? It was because you don't have the AHCI drivers for your hard disk controller loaded? The problem with RAID mode is it takes so much memory it pushes the pre-boot system out because there's not enough real-mode memory left to run it.
so which mean, BSOD happened because of we didn't have AHCI driver? please correct me if I'm wrong, I quite new with the SafeBoot..I just want to know, is it latest BIOS version will effect SafeBoot installation?
