Windows XP 64 experiencing error with install of Serial ATA driver

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Ym9zc2hvZw==?=, Jul 2, 2005.

  1. The following is displayed when a serial ATA driver from Promise technologies
    is installed during windows XP 64 install on AMD 64 platform.

    \SATA\WindowsXP\viastaid,sys unexpected error (18) at line 2335 in
    d:\srvrtm\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c

    I have tried other drivers with the same results. The error occurs on the
    same oemdisk.c file. Has this been fixed as yet or are we looking at
    something else here.

    Thanks to all that respond.

    You are getting the error because you are attempting to load the 32-bit
    drivers for Windows XP instead of the 64-bit drivers for Windows x64.
    Your directory path should be similar to:

    ....\AMD64\2003x64\viamrx64.sys

    And, if you are actually using a Promise SATA, you really have the wrong
    driver!
