yes, i have a windows xp installation disk
i run the installation and after it has loaded the set up files and reboots i get this message:
a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
there is more but i'm sure you know the rest?
this is being done with a new hard drive that works fine and has been scanned
1 & 2 work - setup is loading windows files OK
it then says: windows setup and loads files OK
setup is starting windows - CRASH
if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. if the screen appears again, follow these steps:
check for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78D2524, 0XC0000034, 0X0000000, 0X0000000)
i do not get to:
3) Press ENTER when you see the message
i reset the bios to default so that shouldn't be the problem
i can tell you this has happened before and no new parts were required.
if i take into a repair shop they reset something
here's the answer:
worth noting, probably on other computers/laptops
in the bios i can set the os system to xp vista or other
originally this laptop came with vista installed, so setting the bios to default it was set to vista, preventing xp from being load
set to xp all ok
now i've given you some info, hope you won't mind giving me a bit
as i'm doing a new xp installation can i configure updates now that xp is no longer supported by microsoft or download from somewhere
Hello Mike this is Chris R and I would be happy to take over from here and try to help you out. Are you getting this Stop error ever since you installed the new hard drive? Or was this happening before? I read the previous post but I am unsure about where in the XP installation it is failing. Does it do an initial copying over of files with the blue screen? Do you get as far in the installation that it lets you format and partition the drive? Do you get to the point that you are seeing the Windows Graphical installation? I think there can be something not set up right with the drive. Are you sure that the jumpers are set properly, and that you have the data cables and power connected properly?
now i've given you some info, hope you won't mind giving me a bit would be much appreciated
In the 16:16 EST reply it states that I resolved the problem and asks as I am doing a new XP installation can i configure updates now that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft or download from somewhere.
