now I installed windows vista and it's working fine. but this is not what I want , I want to install windows server 2003.
Please any one can help me !!
STOP 0x0000007b means that XP/2003 cannot see the Hard Drive aka it does not support AHCI.
If there isnt an ATA Legacy mode for the SATA then you will not have F6 Drivers for installing XP or 2003.
When you start your Microsoft Windows XP-based computer after you replace the motherboard on the computer, you may receive a Stop error message that is similar to the following:

I very pleased for your replay , I tried all the mentioned steps above but still the problem not solved.
if I will change to ATA the computer is displaying just first screen and not moving to boot from DVD or to show any other screen.
Thanks you so much. I changed the System Setup Option from RAID ON mode to ATA mode and now successfully installed XP.
The best way (not the easiest) to install XP is in AHCI mode WITH the drivers:
Use nLiteOS.com to integrate the drivers into your installation media (will create a new CD).
