HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

Hello,

 


I cannot get Windows XP SP3 (32 bits) to install on a HP Compaq Elite 8300 when the controller setting in the bios is set to "AHCI".  It works fine when I set it to RAID or IDE.  When set to AHCI, and after applying the latest "Rapid Storage Technology" drivers from HP website, I get a blue screen with error 0X0000007B.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

 

Syl

Hi, Syl:

 

Try installing the SATA driver in IDE mode then change to AHCI.

 

1. Install the chipset driver first & reboot:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12...

 

The following steps are used for installing AHCI drivers in Windows XP operating system installed using the IDE mode.


2. Download the AHCI driver from downloadcenter.intel.com (second download listed 32 bit) then extract the files to a folder you name. Put the folder on your C: drive and remember where you put it so you can browse to it .

 

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21857&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207%...=

 

3. Right-click the My Computer icon, click Manage, select Device Manager


4. Click the + symbol beside IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers , this would show the devices under this category.


5. You will find the Intel native SATA storage controller driver installed.

6. Right-click the Serial ATA storage 4 Port controller listed, and click Update Driver .

7. In Welcome to the Hardware Update Wizard, select No, not this time. Click Next .

8. Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) . Click Next

9. Select Don't search I will choose the driver to install . Click Next

10. Click Have Disk

11. Click Browse


12. Select location: c:\folder you saved ACHI drivers to.

 

13. Select iaAHCI.inf


14. Click Open

15. This will list several SATA AHCI Controllers. From this list, select the Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. Click Next.

16. The Update Driver Warning will be shown. Click Yes

17. The driver will install, and completing the Hardware update Wizard appears. Click Finish

18. You can find the updated controller in the device manager.

19. During restart, press the F10 key and boot to BIOS setup utility . Go back to your storage options sub menu and change the SATA Mode back to AHCI, save settings there (F10) and upon exit, save changes and reboot.


Now, the SATA driver is successfully installed and the desktop will boot into Windows with SATA Emulation Mode set to AHCI.

 

Best Regards,

 

Paul

Hi

 

I'm trying to find Windows XP drivers for HP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF Decktop.

 

Looks like HP have taken the XP Drivers out in the Driver and Downloads page.

 

Please can anyone advise.

 

Many Thanks

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

I dont think that is the right driver.. the iaAhCI.inf reads

"PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E02&CC_0106.DeviceDesc    = "Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller""

 

I nstalled Win7 and the device is listed as Intel(R) 7 Series/C216

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

As you may have gathered already, Windows XP does not support SATA natively. I have found the best way for my customers to ultimately fix the problem is to slipstream the drivers in your base image and use that to install on current systems. there are several ways to do this. here is a good example and I hope it helps

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

I am trying to add the files to my base XP image via sysprep. I have tried the following lines without success.

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E02&CC_0106=%systemdrive%\drivers\MSD\IMver11\iastor.inf ; "Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller"

 

&

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E02&CC_0106=%systemdrive%\drivers\MSD\IMver11\iaahci.inf ; "Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller"

Hi:

 

You need to have first installed the chipset driver so this controller is identified correctly.

 

Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller

 

See this thread from the consumer support forum below and see the post shaded in green with the solution checkmark.

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

I have no problem with the 8470p, 8570p.. My problem is with the 8300 sff.. If I install XP x86 and install storage drivers, and  get everything working, then sysprep the system. The end result will be continual BSOD.

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

The symptom is most likely a storage driver issue related to to the fact that when the bios setting for the hard drive is in AHCI mode, Windows will discover different PNP ID drivers than when it is set as IDE (emulation). Windows XP does NOT have AHCI (SATA) drivers in its base image. AHCI (Intel's name for SATA) did not exist when XP was released. The easiest way to deal with that problem is to slipstream the Intel AHCI drivers into 'your' base image and then image with it.

 

In addition, with the introduction of 4k sector (Advanced Format) drives, there have been issues with XP sysprep when doing an install on top of the OEM preload image without wiping and reformatting the drive. If that is your environment, make sure there is no setting such as "ExtendOemPartition = 1" in your sysprep.inf file.

 

Hope this helps you

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

I have wiped and formatted the drive. And I have gotten to the point that I would be willing to make a fat image just for this model.

 

I get the OS up and running fine with the correct driver. But not matter what i do it blue screens after sysprep. I have tried adding the driver to the build mass storage section, and tried without building mass storage..

 

There are a few threads on this forum with the same concern about this model. I have not yet heard of anyone successfully sysprepping xp on an 8300.

 

I can get this to work on 8200, 8460p, 8560p,8570p,8470p,2570p, as well as about every Dell ever made.

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

As you can see, supporting Windows XP on newer hardware is getting more difficult all the time. After all, XP is over a decade old. In any case, some users have found proper ways to manage imaging of XP and Sysprep and the following is distillation of the info. Hopefully, you will be able to take some of this and make your imaging environment work

 

Use sysprep to ADD SATA drivers to an XP image to support all 2012 notebook (xx70) or desktop (6300/8300) image, including earlier models.

 

Problem:  After loading a syspreped image on a system with SATA set to AHCI in the F10 BIOS setup the system will blue screen then reboot.  It will do this in an infinite loop.  The BSOD flashes very fast on the screen making it difficult to read the error

 

Reason: This is because the image does not have a valid disk driver for the SATA (AHCI in Intel terms) controller. XP starts booting, but when it switches to real mode, it can not access the disk anymore and crashes.

 

Solution:  On the system where the original image was created or on the 8760 (for example) with BIOS set to IDE mode load your image and do this:

 

  1. Download softpaq Sp57387(for example) or the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) driver for any of the xx70 notebook, from hp’s web site. The current generation ProBook and EliteBook laptops use a very similar chipset as the current generation commercial desktops, Pro 6300 and Elite 8300 and therefore the AHCI/SATA controller drivers can be reused - the plug-play ids are the same.

  2. Extract all the files to a temp directory using the following command:
    1. SP57387.exe –s –e
    2. The files will automatically be extracted to C:\swsetup\SP57387

 

  1. Now you should have these files under c:\swsetup\SP57387\Drivers\x32\
    1. iaahci.cat
    2. iaahci.inf
    3. iastor.cat
    4. iastor.inf
    5. iastor.sys
    6. txtsetup.oem
  2. Copy all the above driver files (a to e) to your pnp drivers store, for instance c:\drivers\sata

  3. Add (or edit) the following section to your c:\sysprep\sysprep.inf file:

[SysprepMassStorage]

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2829&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ;notebooks xx10

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2929&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ;notebooks xx30

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B2F&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ;notebooks xx40

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C03&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ;notebooks xx60

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ;notebooks xx70

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iastor.inf  ; ALL RAID mode

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2929&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ; dx9000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3A02&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ; dc7900,8000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B22&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ; 8100

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C02&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ; 6200,8200

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E02&CC_0106 = %SystemDrive%\drivers\sata\iaahci.inf  ; 6300,8300

  1. Then add or edit the following section of sysprep.inf

[Unattended]

OemSkipEula=Yes

OemPnPDriversPath=drivers\sata;<your driver list will come here>

ConfirmHardware=No

OverwriteOemFilesOnupgrade=No

DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore

oempreinstall=yes

updateInstalledDrivers=Yes



  1. Now you MUST  run sysprep! When finished take an image. 
  2. Now you can deploy this image to any  notebook or desktop, up to the 2012 generation, with the BIOS set to AHCI or RAID mode.

  

Warning: It is NOT ok to simply add the lines to the sysprep.inf file directly inside the image using for instance ghost explorer or similar. The image MUST be laid down on a disk, and all the steps from above MUST be executed.

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

Thanks for the reply. Here is what I have been using in the unattended portion of my sysprep.inf

 

[Unattended]
    OemSkipEula = Yes
    DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
    ExtendOemPartition = 1
    KeepPageFile = 0

 

 I will try your suggestions, and report back. Thanks again!

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

please, note that

 

ExtendOemPartition = 1

 

has caused problem imaging XP with the Advanced Format Drives (e.g. 4k drives). i would remove the setting

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

Hi,

 

Ok I have been able to get an XP build onto the 8300.  I have downloaded everything I can think of to clear up all the missing drivers, however I'm down to one and for the life of me I can't figure it out.

 

Device Manager --> Other Devices --> Unknown Devices

 

Under the description it shows a location of on Intel Q77 Express Chipset LPC Controller.  Any Suggestions???

 

Thanks

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

Hi, Nick:

 

The only thing it could be is the chipset driver.

 

Try a manual update from the LPC controller and browse to the chipset driver folder that was created when you ran the chipset driver (I assume you ran that).

Re: HP Compaq Elite 8300 and Windows XP

Soccer dan; I followed Your instructions and made new Windows XP CD with SATA drivers, but does this file: f6flpy3286.zip contain good drivers for HP Compaq 8300 CMT with Intel® Q77 Express chipset and do I have to install XP in IDE SATA emulation mode or AHCI? I would like it to be in AHCI because I am trying to make dual boot configuration with two hard drives and one hard drive already has Windows 7 in AHCI mode.

Namely, I did install XP, with SATA drivers slipstreamed on the installation CD, on the second hard drive in IDE mode and added all patches and updates, but I can´t change it in BIOS to AHCI and make it work...

 

Nice regards  

 

Mario
