An unexpected i/o error has occurred 0xc00000e9 - after win7 expanding files restart

    Question

  • Help please....

    keep getting

    "An unexpected i/o error has occurred 0xc00000e9"

    during the boot manager

    i had to use a xp sata driver to find my sata driver at the start of boot installation of windows 7.
    soon it restarts after expanding files to a drive, i get the error

    xp is installed on the same drive (C:) and i am installing windows 7 on a partition (I:)

    my controller is "promise fasttrak 376" only a old asus driver works on the loading drivers

    is win7 looking elsewhere for the driver, after the restart?

    ive tried chaning bios settings and removing usb devices etc.... without success

    i still have access to xp and the drives



    regards
    Solway

  • found a fix


    dual booting with Xp is causing the issue

    disconnected the xp drive and started a fresh install on a separate drive, and it worked.

    different issue that what was stated.

    this is a fresh install of win7

    i load a xp sata driver to find the drives, then win7 copies and expands the files.
    it then wants a restart and then the error

    it can't get back into the setup

    i might be a sata controller issue, ive order another one off ebay for the time being

  • Hi Solway,

    Can you find a Windows Vista Sata driver to test the issue?

    Thanks.

  • my controller is a "promise fasttrak 376" on my motherboard

    drivers written for xp,

    However on this site, i have found a newer 32bit/64bit driver:

    http://www.station-drivers.com/page/promise.htm
    FastTrak 376/378 drivers version 1.00.1.39 & 1.00.1.41  pour Windows 98/Me/2000/Xp 32/64bits

    on this site, theres a vista driver (or one that works for vista)
    http://download.driverguide.com/driver/FastTrak+376_378/Promise+Technology/d1069523.html
    Promise_376-378-1.00.1.39-41

    All drivers do not load at the screen to find the drives for installation

    The only one that does is a old old old asus 1.00.0.8 one, however it causes the above error on reboot to continue the installation

    how does win7 find the driver on reboot? surely its the same?
    PS does the driver need to be digital signed? for win7 to accept it?



    Just trying to rescue this dying controller.
    strange thing is that all the drivers will install within Win7 on a virtual machine. Just not on boot installation
