I just built a new system, and cloned my old IDE drive to my new SATA drive..

When I boot up from my SATA (that I just cloned to), after BIOS screen goes away, I just get a blank screen, and it's just a blinking cursor...

I try booting from Windows Installation CD, and I get the following error ..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.
If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.

Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information :

*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been searching around, and I tried slipstreaming XP sp2 and running that, but I get the same error message..

I've also downloaded HDD drivers and loaded them during the setup screen, but that didn't work either..

This is the only HDD in this computer at the moment, and when I tried to boot from it, I set it to primary in BIOS, but it didn't make any difference..

I have no idea what to do now, I am so freaking frustrated and my searches turn up nothing different than what I've done above.. Someone that has any useful advice is more than welcome to please help me...

It was one I slipstreamed from an OEM Windows XP installation CD, because the Original was not working either..

I'm using an ASUS P5VD2-VM SE LGA775 mATX board..

I am using (two) 1 GB Crucial 240 pin PC2-5300 DDR2 667 Memory sticks..

have you set bios to defaults, if the mobo was used/fleabayed/open box reset cmos?

you are not giving many details to help solve the problem

check in bios for temp or voltage problems(easy)

during setup from the cd, did windows see your hard drive after using the floppy F6 option?

Yes I have set BIOS to defaults.. The MB was New, but I've reset CMOS anyway...

Temp and voltage all are good... Yes Windows saw my Hard Drive after using the floppy, and after it loaded the drivers, it continued setup, then halted on that stop error again..

My system build is:
ASUS P5VD2-VM SE LGA 775 mATX MB..
(2) 1 GB Memory Sticks from Crucial, 240 pin, PC2-5300 DDR2 667..
Hitachi DeskStar 500GB SATA 2 drive...
Sapphire ATI radeon X1550 512MB DDR2 PCI-E Video card..
Intel Pentium D 935 Dual Core 3.2 Ghz Processor..

Every part to it is brand new... I had my Windows and files on a Maxtor 40GB IDE drive, and I used Gparted to clone to my new 500GB SATA drive... It said it was successful, but the SATA does not boot..

I start up my PC, it goes through the BIOS, then the next screen is blank with a cursor.. IF/When I attempt to run Windows Setup, I get the blue screen mentioned above with the message above..
