I am using XP and am reinstalling XP MCE on a 320 WD EIDE drive. XP installer gets to about 34 or so minutes and I get a blue screen saying
"A problem has been dected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer"
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Technical info: XXXstop 0X0000000A (0X0063006D, 0x00000002, 0X00000000, 0X804EDEE )

Beginning dump of physical memory to disk: 1 etc...and that goes on till 99

I can't get beyond it or back to windows, safe mode leads me back to the install:crazy:

If I try booting without the install CD it requests the XP installation service pack 2 cd so I put the install disk in and it goes back to the install and pretty soon reaches that 34 or so mark, the same scenario repeats it'self

Check the hard drive...are you using the XP CD to format/create a partition?

No I already have XP (the same) on the drive, I was reloading bc I had several issues with ms programs.

If there is a partition I know nothing of it.

It was a new hard drive I loaded XP on about a month ago and was having some weirdness so I was attempting to load it like an overlay.

Best I can tell from the 39 minute hiccup is that it is a hardware problem.

I am still trying to run it down and now have renewed hope that I will.

I have followed the leads provided and been one by one eliminating the .ini files at the end of the setupapi.log

So far it is still broke, I will continue to eliminate them one by one and hopefully will be back running.


Thanks for the info :thumbsup:

Were you trying to run a repair using the installation disc? If not and you were just trying to reinstall the OS you will need to reformat the hdd first and then you can reinstall the OS. If you suspect that there is a problem with the hdd go to the web site of the manufacturer and download their diagnostic tool. You will have to make a CD of it to boot from, this also will require you to enter the BIOS and make the CD-ROM the first device in the boot order.

What happened that made want to change out the hdd?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

My existing hard drive was full and also was making a clicking sound, so I installed a new one and left the old one as secondary or slave.

I have tried everything to no avail...

deleting the .inf files in question, unplugging all externals

I think maybe formatting the disk might be the best way out.

I can get to the os using shift F10

I can switch between the two drives and dir all my files and directories.

I finally yanked the drive out put it in a cage rescued my pictures and Quickbooks.

Formatted the drive and installed XP.

Everything went smoothly ....never figured out what caused the 34 minute hiccup

Thanks again
