Im trying to install XP on a Optiplex 755. The machine is shipped without any ide controller and without ant ps2 support.
When I try to install XP from i either get a blue screen with the error code 0x0000007B that is a sata error, but my keyboard works. If i load the sata driver, the intall works fine, untill i have to press enter to instal, then my keyboard stops working, giving me a hard time pressing enter...
I have bought 12 machines of this type and need to install our own XP on all of them. Any solutions?
Had the same issue...as suggested changing to ATA in SATA Operations allows an install to continue.
Interestingly, I received this error while installing a Japanese version of Windows XP SP2 VLK (BSOD while loading drivers section of install), but did not receive it with the bundled Dell Windows XP SP2 disc.
*This was with BIOS A04

Had an issue loading the F6 drivers. Because there is no floppy drive in the system, we are using a Latitude D-series floppy drive to load the drivers. It initially reads the drivers, however after windows loads the necessary files, and you format the disk, the system loses connection to the USB floppy drive and you cannot continue with setup. Had this same issue on a Precision 690. Found this workaround for users that want to use the SATA AHCI operation.
