I finally got my xp pro OEM so I try to do the repair install and maybe 10 minutes in I get the following error message...

"The software you are installing for this hardware: Nvidia Geforce 6800 series GPU has not passed windows logo testing to verify it's compatability with windows xp."

I then am given 2 options continue with the install or stop it. When I choose continue I get a blue screen of death.

Any ideas?

Is the Geforce card the one that came with the computer, or is there another graphics chipset on your motherboard? If the Geforce isn't the only GPU on your computer, try taking that out for the XP Pro installation, then re-installing it when you have the capabilities of downloading and enabling the correct drivers for it.

If the geforce IS the only GPU available..... i have no idea, someone else is going to have to help you.

Interesting I hit no and maybe 30 seconds later the same message popped up and I repeated this several times because it seems that its loading in between and it finishes, but here is the new problem... I was unaware that you need your cd key to do a repair install and I was wondering if ther is anyway to recover the cd key I used on this computer?
