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!

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..

I bought a used ibm r40, changed the hard dsrive and tryed to load xp pro. after loading the system files the computer wants to reboot to finalise. After this it goes right back to fresh install start.


When you say you tried to load XP Pro, did the hard drive already have XP installed or are you installing it fresh from a CD? If you are installing it fresh from the CD and it is asking you to reboot, it seems as if you are letting it try to boot again from the CD. When it reboots and says "Press any key to boot from CD..." don't press anything, just let it boot. It should finalize the installation there!

Hope that helps!

Starts to load xp then goes to blue stop screen


Did you load the CD that came with the motherboard? It has the drivers for the motherboard. Did you go into BIOS Setup, and set the first boot option in Boot Order, to CDROM?

Boot Failure


i am assuming you have allowed the bios to detect that there is a different hard drive fitted as it will be looking to boot from an non existent drive. If you have fitted a new HDD with an operating system already on it then you will have to repair windows as its a change in hardware. If you cant get the bios to see the drive then the motherboard has an IDE or Sata connector problem.
