Hello

Without the actual info from the BSOD, we have to provide general troubleshooting tips.

Since Windows is not yet loaded, it cannot be a driver or software issue - so we need to look at the hardware.

Typically, a faulty or unrecognized RAM stick and / or an unusual BIOS setting can cause this issue.

Go into the BIOS and reset the BIOS to factory defaults, remove all CPU overclocking.

Remove all RAM and try booting with only 1 stick installed.

If this does not work, try and give the error message from the BSOD and we can look into it for you.

The blue screen you are seeing is probably not the regular BSOD (blue screen of death)

Wat you need is the DOS SATA drivers for your adaptor on floppy or some other suitable form (USB formatted as a floppy)

I think you may have missed it but as the XP CD is booting at the bottom of the screen was a message that said "press F6 to install additional storage drivers"

You should have hit F6

In a little while it will then ask you for those drivers and you just point it at the floppy or other device set to act as a floppy.

Now it will load them and let you continue setup.

otherwise it will quite often fail as it may no know how to find the SATA drive.

Having major problems installing windows XP


Your motherboard has a bad on board hardware. Its hard to fix that eventhough you disable the function on it. Its better to buy a new motherboard.

try F8 to got to the startup menu, and choose last known good configuration, use a ps2 keyboard or an adaptor and nothing that needs the USB.SYS Driver to function, and you should be able to reinstall Windows, if last known good configuration doesn't work, i hope this helps, please give good rating

Try a Repair Install with your WinXP Bootable CD. If Repair option fails you will have to do a Clean Reinstall of WinXP as a last resort.
Some details:
1. Boot with your WinXP CD
2.At the "Welcome To Setup" screen, Choose the option:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER. DO NOT choose !!!! To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R. IGNORE
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3
3. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations. 4.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, under the Circumstances you are in the next option will be Clean install
5. I this does not work it might be your memory --download and burn to cd memtest (http://www.memtest86.com/) and test your memory for errors.
