[quote=screamingmoose;2194949]After installing the Sony DRUV204A on my Dell XPS Gen4 running WINXP SP2 I downloaded Win32 Binflash v1.46A, unzipped it, went to a command prompt and issued the command necflash â€“scan.
The scan begins but then I get a bsod, stop 8086. I looked at the minidump and it said that the failing module was most likely iastor.sys. Iastor.sys is the driver for the Intel® 82801FR Sata AHCI Controller. In device manager I see that itâ€™s the original iastor.sys, dated 6-29-2004. The dump also mentioned aspi32.sys and sptd.sys The BSOD happens with any necflash command, not just scan.
One forum mentioned DVD43 having caused a bsod like this so I uninstalled DVD43 but still get it. Finally I went into safe mode and necflash works. Is there any problem flashing the firmware in safe mode? If there is a problem, does someone know why this is happening in normal mode?
