I updated the BIOS on my SiI3512 SATA card this morning because of some boot issues with Windows not detecting the card. Now my WinXP BSODs every time I boot, no matter if I choose safe mode or normal startup. The BSOD happens so fast that I can't see the specific driver.sys file thats causing the problem. But, I'm almost positive it will be the 3512. If I use the WinXP cd-rom and try to use the recovery console doesn't detect the drive. I can get into the card's BIOS and all looks ok. So here are my 2 questions.
- Is there a way to exclude a specific driver on boot?
- I don't mind re-installing XP, but if I put the drive on another machines SATA will it be readable so I can copy files? It wasn't raided, but I read that some cards write proprietary stuff to the drive.
The right question is, why is my 3512 SATA card causing Windows XP to BSOD.
