    I keep in contact with Promise quite frequently. I may be wrong but technically you should be OK with your setup unless using a hard drive over 137GB Id almost look to be sur eyour Promise drivers are up to date first and your BIOS settings for the mobo are proper

    Now all that being said, there WAS a new BIOS released for the Promise Ultra100 TX2 card back in January. Maybe based on how the card interfaces with th new motherobards, you might need this new Promise BIOS. The reason Im saying maybe is Ive used Ultra 100 TX2 cards on KT266A motherboards that support PC2001 system standards and theres been no real problem

    So ehres what I would do...in this order

    1st confirm youre not overclocking anything and that your Ram settings are at their default. Follow whatever BIOS settings recommendations are being offered in the Asus forum. Now test your system...if the problem is still there go to the next setp

    2nd confirm youre using the built in XP drivers for Promise Ultra 100 controllers. Windows XP has drivers that work for your PCI card built into Widnows, you shouldnt have needed to load anything ... do a driver roll back to confirm

    3rd if still having problems and youre sure that BIOS settings, RAM, PSU, and drivers are not to blame, go to the promise website and download the latest BIOS/firware for the Promsie card and flash the Promise BIOS. Before flashing the Promise BIOS be sure you FIRST install the new drivers from the Promsie website

    Heres a link to BIOS and drivers
    http://www.promise.com/support/downl...&product_id=11


    Let us know how it goes.

    PS The above applies to the Promise Ultra100 TX2 card and not to RAID or other models. Also if you already have the latest BIOS from Promise but are usign older drivers (like the ones built into WinXP that could cause the above error too)

    OK, i updated the Bios and Driver and went a while without it giving the error. It seems to be giving the error less often by a large margin. Nothing in my system is overclocked. I didnt get this error in WInXP Home when i was using my Shuttle AK31 v3/KT266A Board.
