Recently I got a SYBA SD-SATA-4P PCI card with SIL3114 chupset for my PC, and everything works fine in Win2k with SATA hard drive connected. However, I get “Stop: 0X0000001E(0XC0000005,0XEB0717A6,0X00000000,0X00000028) KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED” just after the Windows 2000 Professional screen while booting when SATA burner is attached. This is on a multi-boot system with Win98SE and WinXP plus Win2k. Both WinXP and Win98SE boot fine with hard drive and SATA burner connected. SIL3114 drivers were installed for all 3 Windows versions before before attaching any SATA drive.
WinXP required a repair install before it would boot even to the hard drive, and I thought repair install may be the solution for Win2k. However, the same error is given after the first restart during repair install. I then had to restore a recent backup image of C drive to be able to boot to Win98SE or WinXP because it kept trying that repair install restart with no boot menu to select.
Is Win2k incompatible with SATA adapter cards, or is there a solution for this problem? Another option I considered is to do a limited and separate WinXP install to replace the Win2k install. Would WinXP need to be activated again if a separate install were done, and are there any problems with having 2 separate WinXP installs?
