What is the HardwareID of the mass storage controller? Used to be you couldn't even change the slots the cards are in; if they found out they were different they'd tell you to put them back and call again. They discovered the problem and a new motherboard was made. Thing is, every other XP setup I have tried on this machine works fine, only difference is MCE 2005 is SP2 while all the others I've tried were SP3.

I tried deleting the /disk1 with no avail. If Dell doesn't have an XP 64 bit driver, the controller manufacturer might.

Cheers Reply itaushanov says: December 20, 2013 at 22:58 Yep, I guess on machines with so limited boot options you'd have to edit the EFI folder.
