I was going to ask if I should get rid of those drivers I installed already. I would like to try this without. Do you think I should get rid of them first or can I install the new ones?

    maybe 8 and XP


    just did it but it still does not work. I could not delete the old drivers since windows keep replacing them.

    phew...i won't give up if u don't.
    you're playing with an imaged drive right? so we can test at will.
    so i'm clear...
    when u boot with the bios set to ide all is well under xp.
    when u boot set to ahci it gets somewhere during the xp bootscreen and re-boots or is just stuck.
    and when u boot in ide to get to xp you can't access the win 8 drive.
    is that just about it?
