Troubleshooting hard drive installation using Windos XP Pro SP2

When installing XP, it let's me get to about the end of the formatting and then I get the blue screen of death. This is what it reads. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA STOP:0x00000050(0x80374020,0x00000000,0x8088259A,0x00000000) I am using a Intel Desktop Motherboard with a Intel Celeron CPU.

Have you added any new hardware? This is typically caused by a faulty RAM module. But could also be any other new hardware you might have added. If you haven't added any new hardware, try removing one RAM module at a time and performing the installation (assuming you have 2 installed), and try again. Or, you might need to purchase a new one, or borrow from another PC to try temporarily.

Mecer wont load wi xp sp2 on 160gig hardrive


The BIOS is seeing the drive but your computer can only see about 120-130 GB of harddrive. If the drive has a pin option to limit it's size you may be able to limit it then install windows but if it doesn't you're back to looking for a smaller drive.

Hope this helps

Replace bad HD with new 5oogb

This is a rather technical problem with MS Windows and the 48bit Logical Block Addressing scheme.
You can read more details here:

Short solution: You have to install Service Pack 1 (or better SP2) in order to get past this problem.
I assume that you had this disk in you computer before, so the BIOS should be able to handle this as well.

One Touch 4 Maxstor 750 external hard drive installing on a macbook pro

If you have a hard-drive that is formatted as NTFS which stands for (New Technology File Ssytem), Mac OS X can only read the partition. It cannot write to it.

The trick is to use your drive manfacturer's disk-formatting software which will allow you to format your drive as one large partition. Formatting your drive as one large FAT 32 partition is the easiest way to make a drive so it can be used with both PC's and Mac's.

Another option is to use a third part utility so that you can read a MAC formated harddrive's from your PC. Here is one option:

Good luck.
