New XP Pro in dual-boot is mute


D

Derek Harvey

Hi Folks,
The computer (Medion Multimedia PC MD8833) has Vista Home Premium
pre-installed. I have installed a newly-bought XP Pro in a separate
partition as a dual boot setup. All in XP is now working after several
trials and tribulations EXCEPT the sound. Realtek High Definition Audio is
on the motherboard. Attempts to install drivers for it, from various sources
including the CD supplied with the computer as 'XP Drivers', a file
recommended by DriverDetective and one from Realtek site, fail towards the
end of the installation process with a cryptic 'failed' message. One error
code announced is 0xE0000227 Does anyone know what this means and what has
generated it?

I wonder if anyone else has encountered this sort of problem with sound in a
dual boot? The Vista installation partition is Hidden and Vista has not been
booted at all when I try these installations. The Installshield runs for
quite a long time, extracting many files and it is almost at the end of a
progress bar when it fails. This seems to imply that it thinks it is
installing to the correct hardware??

It may be relevant that, if I go into Device Manager (where a yellow ! is
shown against this item) and ask Windows to reinstall the driver, nothing at
all happens when that button is clicked. Also 'uninstall' does not work -
something says 'device may be needed to boot up' which is surely
ridiculous!?

Any ideas on how I proceed to get sound working?
TIA
Derek

I searched Google using the error code you provided and found this problem to be
very common.

The most common solution was this:

open device manager
click "system devices"
disable "microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio"
uninstall "UAA bus driver"
make rescan devices (Note: Not all had this step. You may want to skip it.) D.W.
install realtek driver

the realtek driver includes the UAA driver too.

Hope this helps.

Thanks David for that tip. I'll certainly give it a try when I next get that
system on.
