aic78xx is related to your raid device or SCSI controller. I have the same error but haven't got the answer. I got some hints from Computer Associates and Microsoft about that particular error, but the solution didn't work for me.
I know it doesn't help! You should run your error @ http://www.microsoft.com/technet/default.asp

Good luck!

I had the same problem previously due to a JAZ drive I no longer use and removed - once I disabled this in the devices list, all was well.

Sounds like you have the wrong device driver for you Adaptec SCSI card. Updated drivers are available from http://www.adaptec.com/support/index.html#downloads

AIC78xx is an adaptec family driver. If you don't have a SCSI card in your pc remove the driver using the SCSI control panel aplet.

The other answers have been right on target but if your machine is working correctly, you should not risk disableing the wrong service. Doing so could cause your machone not to boot. What I would suggest doing is turning off the error from within the registry. To do this,

Start -> Run -> Regedit
Find HKey_Local Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\aic78xx
Then change the value of ErrorControl to 0 from 1

This will keep NT from giving you this error at Start-up but will not disablethe device so you do not risk your server not starting.

Good Luck.....Jeremy
