Crashing during Windows Setup

I am loading XP Pro. I boot from the CD and it goes about loading all the drivers and what not. When it gets to the part when it says "Starting Windows" the hard drive light blinks a couple of times then it crashes to a BSOD. The error code I get is STOP OxOOOOOO7B. I have tried this with two different hard drives. Mobo - ASUS P5LD2-VM Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Check out any hardware that doesnot supports windows xp. remove that and reload the os. it works. or remove all the additional addon cards like modem, network card, printers etc., (just maintain only hard disk, cd rom and floppy drive)then install the os. once os installs add the components one by one to so that the os will detect one by one cheers!

Hi i have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 i have reformatted the hard drive and am trying to instal windows xp Professional Genuine CD. I can access bios utility no problem and i start install for winxp it...

This because you dont have AHCI drivers required for Win XP and you set in BIOS either sata controller or ide controller to an AHCI. You must set to native IDE or anything else like that.
If you wish set an AHCI driver you must press F6 during starting windows XP setup. And put the drivers (get it here) to floppy disk, it will prompted to install required drivers..
Another way to install driver without floppy disk you must inject the driver to windows XP installation CD...

P.S : you cant put the drivers onto floppy, because it wont be read by Windows XP setup..

My ksuser dll for windows xp profesional

Just boot from the xp professional cd and run the recovery console.
Download the operating system from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en
or
if you have it, install it using the procedure below:Boot From the Windows XP CD
  • You must boot from your XP . Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.

Choose F8 to continue.

  • Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

    If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.
That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts

Can you tell me when the network driver in Windows gets loaded. I read some where that it does not get loaded until you get to screen in XP Pro. Is this true?

The network drivers do not load until you boot to Windows. I'm not sure what you mean by the XP Pro Screen but you have to be at the desktop level to have them load.

A good way to test when they've loaded is to go to your network connections after you're fully booted and right click on your connection. Choose properties. Check the box that says: Show icon in notification area when connected.

Two little computers should then appear in the right side of the system tray by the clock.

When you reboot, those will not appear again until the drivers have loaded.

Hi, I got a free HP compaq desktop, the small ones, is 2.66hz it was working fine, but i don't have the password for the administrator in a xp pro, so I just reinstall a new copy of XP but now this...

please load xp again and press f 6 when you see it on the screen to load sata devices .
sata softwares and drivers are required in certain computers to load windows so while loading you will be asked to load those drivers through a floppydrive, so u must have
1)sata raid drivers (according to the hard ware installed in hp.)this piece of hard ware will not allow xp to boot if you dont give its drivers through a floppy drive(during installation and setup of windows.
so u must now have
1 floppy drive(usb)
2 a floppy disk with sata drivers
3)usb port to attach the usb floppy drive
after loading xp you will see xp running trouble free.
a easy solution is to load vists and the drivers are already there in vista cd.

Removing partial install of 2nd os

You should be able to do a SYSTEM RESTORE to a point before the XP Pro installation.

Start the machine and start tapping the F8 key until the boot menu is displayed. Use the arrow keys to highlight SAFE MODE and press enter. If you are given a menu to choose which Windows to boot into, choose the Home edition. Windows will load with the minimum drivers. Your screen display will be 640 X 480 and the icons will be large. You will eventually see a window advising you that you are in safe mode, click OK or NO. Click NO. That should open The System Restore function. Choose to restore the system to an earlier date. A calendar with be displayed. The BOLD dates are the ones that you can restore to. Choose a date that was before the date you tried to install XP Pro. Follow the prompts and the restore process will run and reboot your computer. Following the reboot, the installation will complete and Windows will open.

If you have installed a service packs or updates after the restore date you will need to install them again.

Good Luck! and please let me know how this works out for you.

Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

Tried to put windows xp back on computer and now im getting error loading operating system not sure what to do please help

Insert XP Cd in disk drive. Reboot your PC. F2 or Del key to enter BIOS upon setup. Change first boot device to CD\DVD - F10 to save. The PC will now boot from the CD and you can partition/ allocate and setup a new installation from here by following the on-screen instructions. This is somewhat complicated and not for newbies - you will loose all your data during this process - so if you are not sure what to do rather ask or take it to a pro or your vendor.
