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?

Boot drive is PATA HDD WD 350. I only have 1.




DVD ROM is PATA Lite-On IHAP122-04


How is this going to fix the problem?

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.

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.
