ABIT ATA/66 Problems

By BJackey13 ·
I have an ABIT BP6 Mobo with an onboard ATA/66 controller made by Highpoint Technologies. My Win2000 system has the latest Bios and HPT366 (the ATA controller) drivers installed. I can boot to Safe Mode, and the system operates fine, but when I boot normally I get a BSOD and an IRQ_LESS_THAN error message right as the splash screen finishes loading. I've tried ACPI on and off, And all possible configs of PNP OS = Yes or No. Still it won't boot. Both the drives are seen by the ATA66 BIOS. I can boot them normally if I use normal EIDE.
TIA

ABIT ATA/66 Problems

On a few ata66 drives I've seen, there was a utility you had to download from the vendor to enable the drive to use the ata66 technology.

The only other thing I can think of that give you headaches with that would if somehow there was a 16 bit drivers being loading in the autoexec or config.

Good luck to you

This is pretty clearly a problem with how ABIT has implemented ATA/66 on their motherboard and they need to fix the driver.

I don't think they have Highpoint drivers for Win2k yet do they? I don't think that the reqular NT drivers will work here. If not, you could set the drive for ATA 33 for the time being. There seems to be a lot of companies behind on Win2k drivers.
Good Luck!
