OS - XP Pro Retail SP2 (disk is OK)
-GA-MA69VM-S2 Gigabyte motherboard
XP doesn't install on the motherboard. Got it to work when I made the Floppy disk with the drivers on another PC that worked and set XP to use those SATA/RAID drivers
Crashes about 30% through
Managed to install XP Pro on the disk on a different PC, and swapped the SATA hard drive back into the original system. XP boots
Problem is I still need to install the drivers for the integrated video, and pretty much everything else on the motherboard except the SATA controller
I run the included Gigabyte series, it appears to work fine, however after installing the South Bridge chipset and restarting, I get the Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM error
FIXMBR, FIXBOOT an repairing the boot ini all fails
and microsoft's more "full" way of the above.
Actually to clarify: The latter link does get XP back into a functional state, but without the required drivers.
