Guys,
I really really need help with this, i have read multiple posts & done quite a few things, but nothing works, here are some facts
1. i have an hp desktop, model m9250f
2. i have 2 Hitachi hard disks , 500G each, setup in BIOS as RAID
3. everything i try, i end up with a blue screen telling me that windows has been shutdown, press F8 for advanced options etc etc.....with a bunch of numbers at the bottom of this blue screen.

Keep in mind that i am converting from vista to xp.
What i have done so far:
1. i boot with a windows xp disc in my CD-ROM drive.......system starts to boot from the CD but doesn't recognize any of my SATA drives, so....i went to "ftp://ftp-usa.abit.com.tw/pub/download/driver2/sli3112/v10050.zip" & downloaded the appropriate drivers.......two files from this download are really important, they were .......'txtsetup.oem' & 'si3112r.sys'
2. I put these files 'txtsetup.oem' & si3112r.sys' on a floppy drive & press F6 as the system boots up......windows recognizes & reads both these files from the floppy disk & then recognizes the sata hard drives.....the setup process goes on its normal course & finally ends up with a blue screen
3. Someone mentioned about SATA mode in the BIOS..... i went to BIOS & changes the mode from RAID to IDE & AHCI....went thru the same boot sequence described above.......again blue screen
4. Someone mentioned that XP doesn't recognize more than 2gigs of RAM, I had 4gigs of RAM.........so i removed 2gigs.....re-did the same process........back to blue screen
5. My motherboard is from American Megatrends Inc (ami.com) , i took this info, went to the HP website & downloaded & installed the BIOS update with file "sp40908.exe" [called: IPIBL-LB Motherboard BIOS Update, after a successful BIOS update, i re-did the whole process......back to the blue screen

I have provided as much detail as i possibly could, please advise if more info is needed. Everyone's issue seems to have resolved with the posts i have read so far, except for mine !
