Soyo Dragon 2 - SATA Overclocking prob
I'm not sure exactly how this started, but I was overclocking my Soyo dragon 2 Platinum (2.4C Pentium IV chip, 2GB RAM, GeforceFX) and for some reason, after I overclocked it, my SATA drives were having trouble booting up. At first, I did not go according to the directions on overclocking entirely. However, BIOS comes up just fine, but when it gets to starting Windows, it quickly goes to blue screen and I get the message below.
! INCIDENTALLY, I am now reloading windows up on an ATA drive and Windows runs just fine.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the error you are recieving is because you have your RAM overclocked to an unsupported speed. I would try lowering the speed of your RAM and see what happens.

yeah the over overclocked RAM is your problem. Only usally your BIOS doesnt load on a unsupported configuration setting. so id check that as well. u can do so but downloading the memory diagnostic off the micosoft website.
the instructions should be pretty basic if otherwise do as follows...
create a boot disk.. format and check "create Ms-DOS startup disk" or "copy system files"
then copy the memory diagnostic on the disk.
viola u should be set, boot the floppy and see if the dianostic loads.
it should scan all banks
