I have assembled computer in which i have MSI P965 Platinum motherboard and 2Gb RAM. My computer was running absolutely fine but some days before I have bought new SSD and after that when I tried to install the windows XP service pack 3 in my SSD at that time windows Xp installation starts perfectly and after installing the windows XP when I start the computer at that it suddenly gives me the error saying that ioStor.sys is damaged and that is why I am not able to complete the process. Please help me to fix this issue.

As you have said that you are after restarting the computer you are getting this error it means there might be something wrong with your system native drivers and that is I will suggest you to restart the computer and after that check whether you are getting the option for starting the computer in safe mode or not. if you get the option to start the computer in safe mode then start your computer in safe mode and after that you have to install the mother driver Cd in your computer. I think after doing that your problem will get solved easily.

I am agree with the above post because the error message which you are facing is (ioStor.sys is damaged) normally comes when any Intel specific drivers gets damaged. Whenever this type of error message comes at that time we have to solve it by inserting the motherboard drivers CD in the computer and after that we have install the drivers in our system and after this problem will gets solved easily.

After looking at your above post I have tried to solve this windows installation issue by trying to install the motherboard drivers from safe mode and after installing the drivers in safe mode also I am still getting the same problem. Now after doing that I have also tried to solve this issue by installing the windows XP service pack 3 in my computer by using different installation CD but that tricks also didn?t worked for me. Please help me to fix this issue.

Well according to me you should try this solution to fix your windows installation problem. First you have to visit the search the ICH8 driver drivers on the internet according to your computer model number and after that you have to download it and install it in your computer and I think after doing that you will not get any error message in your computer. if you want any more help then please let me know.
