Problem installing GGW-H20L

Hi everyone

I just purchased the GGW-H20L and after putting drive in the computer windows loads up and immediately crashes. I keep getting the blue screen which says IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_EQUAL. Does this mean there is an IRQ conflict with some other hardware on my system? How do I fix this problem?

My hardware setup is:
Base processor
Athlon 64 X2 (W) 5600+ 2.8 GHz (89W)
2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second)
Socket AM2
Chipset
GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Motherboard
Manufacturer: Asus
Motherboard Name: M2N68-LA
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Narra2-GL8E

M2N68-LA uses Nvidia chipset which often not so friendly with SATA burners.

First try updating the drivers from the website above.
Please report back.

I updated the drivers for NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller Driver and that did not solve my problem. I also chatted with live hp support online and they suggested a new video card, which I successfully installed. That did not solve my problem either.

My BIOS recognizes the drive when I hook it up and check before loading windows.

Would one of those pci SATA ports solve my problem?

You can try. But the one that guarantee to work based on many members experience is Syba SD-SAA-4P PCI SATA here
