"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

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
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:
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)
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
