Windows 7 + VIA IDE PCI Card = BSOD

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded from a 4 year old XP install full of Win rot, and a registry bigger than your fist to Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 RTM.

 

Everything seems to be working fine, except ImgBurn.

 

When I go to burn something, it says "Settting L0 Data Zone", and then BSOD about viaraid.sys.

 

Is it the driver, or ImgBurn crashing? Or both? What do I have to do to fix it?

Oh wow.

 

The IDE slot is being used for the HDD. So, I need the VIA card to support the drives.

 

What can I do so it won't crash?

Maybe you could plug the HDD(s) on the VIA card and the burner on the onboard IDE port?

The motherboard won't reconize the DVD drives. I doubt it'll reconize my Windows drive. -_-

 

It's a VIA 6421.

Well that explains the problem better

 

 

Do you have an actual link for the controller card, they are not made by via?

I already know it won't, because I tired.

 

You could've asked. That's why I put the DVD drives on the VIA card, because it was either not have the motherboard reconize the DVD drives, or not have it reconize the HDD. Had to choose the obvious one.

 

And if I ever need to boot from a CD/DVD, I have tons of Lite-On DG-16D2S 0800 drives to use for that.

Pardon me,

 

You still can't even identify your controller card and expect me to believe you have a clue about what you are doing.

 

Good Luck

 

With an attitude like that you will go far

I did identify it. I told you what it was, but you weren't paying attention.

 

I want a solution, not a workaround.

You did not indentify it, your link just showed different options for using the via chipset in a controller card, so far I am the one doing the work, I even downloaded the res images.

 

They just told what I have known for years, via makes chipsets, not cards.

There's no insignia on the card. It just says VIA on the controller chip. No manufacture.

 

The PCB is green.

 

It looks generic.

 

Out of desperation, I hotwired one of the DVD burners to the motherboard's IDE line. I don't even use the VIA card anymore, since the motherboard has onboard SATA, but it'd be nice if I had 2 burners. -_-

That doesn't look like my card.

 

This is what my card looks like: http://cgi.ebay.com/IDE-PCI-SATA-Serial-AT...id=p3286.c0.m14

 

EDIT: I just tried again to have the BIOS boot from the HDD that was connected to the VIA card, and no beans. It keeps saying no hard drive detected.

 

EDIT2: I just ordered this IDE controller: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16816132004

 

Hopefully it will be able to boot the IDE hard drive.
