I Bought A New Maxtor 250Gig DiamondMax Plus Drive.
I Went To Install Windows 2000 Pro. Durin The Setup, I Pressed F6 To Load Third-Party SCSI/RAID Drivers, I Inserted The Drive Disket And Selected The Correct Option. Pressed Enter And It Installed The Driver. Then After A Few More Steps. It Goes To Start Copying Files To The Hard Drive. Now It's Asking For UlSata.sys File. This File Was Sospose To Be Installed Allready When I Setup The Thrid-Party SCSI/RAID Driver. It's On The Floppy Disk I Setup From, Now All I Can Do Is "Retry,Skip,Quit" If I Skin After Windows 2000 Pro Install Is Complete, It Restarts, While Booting, It Will "BLUE SCREEN" INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE Bunch Or 0X00000 etc... Is This A Flaw? How Do I Fix, I Have Tryed Reinstalling 5 Times.

Not sure what "Drive Disket" is, but it need to be the manufacturer supplied
driver for your ATA controller.

This may also be of interest.

Point is it needs to be the ATA controller driver. Nothing to do with the
drive.

The first time it asks for the file it is loading it into memory so it
can access the drive. The second time it is asking for the file so it
can copy it to the hard drive. If it can't read the file a second time
for some reason Windows setup is loosing access to your floppy drive.

Well you still haven't confirmed it's the controller driver. Never heard of
this being a problem. It may be as Leonard says, a bad floppy and or floppy
drive.

Hey Leonard Severt [MSFT] it is spelled "losing" not "loosing" tsk tsk ...
why is it that Microsoft people can't spell? A better question: Since it's
your job to answer these questions, M$FT, can you at least provide a helpful
suggestion to Dale?

Dale:

Something is wrong with the method you're using to install your Windows 2000
Professional installation. I believe you need to load your mass storage
controller drivers after pressing F6 and being prompted to insert the
appropriate diskette. I'm not sure what "driver disket" or "the supplied
drive disk 3 1/2 floppy" you are using, nor do I know which "atrical" you're
reading. What I do believe is that you are seeing the STOP 0x0000007B
because your operating system is not able to communicate with your boot
device. This is typically due to loading the incorrect driver for your mass
storage controller (scsi/raid/promise or other driver). Make sure you've
obtained and updated to the latest firmware updates and drivers (downloaded
and extracted to a floppy) for your controller. Install Windows 2000
Professional from your media and press F6 at the appropriate prompt. Then
you will need to insert the driver disk when prompted. Proceed with the
installation.

If you encounter additional problems, I think you may wish to call
Micro$oft. If I read their support page properly, you have 2 incidents at
no charge.

Phone Support


a.. Your Product Support currently** includes two incidents at no
charge.
a.. Paid Support is available by phone at $245 U.S. per incident.



This is for the retail copy of Windows 2000 Professional. The OEM versions
are supported by the OEM from whom you purchased the product.

You might be experiencing a hardware problem. Try returning that "Maxtor
250Gig DiamondMax Plus Drive" for a different drive. Try a different
storage controller.

If you continue to experience problems and fixing it is too complicated you
may find it easier just to buy a computer with the operating system already
installed or hire a consultant to install it for you.
