    Are SATA issues like Vista?? Can't operate in full SATA mode


    this is an ASUS X83V notebook - Setting the SATA operation to 'compatible' mode at installation, Win8 CP installed fine, no hitches. Switched BIOS to Enhanced/full mode and it fails.

    I recall this sort of problem from XP installs where tricks were needed to support SATA, but I do not recall this on Seven. Will Win 8 not detect the right controller, fetch the right driver? Do I need to manually force-install, reboot, reselect enhanced mode, and go from there?

    thankx

    Is this so-called "enhanced" mode switching the storage over to AHCI mode? If so, you have to edit the registry first before being able to do that.

    Because you are literally changing your hardware by doing that.

    Without editing the registry, the blue screen stop error is telling you that it can't handle the hardware change because it is using the wrong driver.

    Microsoft.com is a learning library: Error message when you start a Windows 7 or Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

    Don't use the auto fix-it. It won't work.
