Whats good bleeps,

I have recently purchased a new Pc with Vista Premium Pre-installed on it.
Specs: New PC

I am needing to install Xp due to some hardware driver issues because Vista is so new and "improved". I know the easiest way to complete a dual boot is to install the older OS first, but the Pc came pre-installed with Vista and no disc came along.

So...
I have shrinked my C drive and made a sperate partion to install XP on. When I boot the Xp disc it begins the set up, but before it lets me select my drive I receive the following error In BLUE!

********************************************************************************
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 to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try chaging video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF85F9AD9, 0xF898B7A4, 0xF898B4A4)

******************************************************************************

I've been to Microsofts support page, but no luck. Searched other forums no luck. Basically I want to know if anyone has encountered the same issue and has a resolution to this.


D*** Bleeping comp.... :huh:

There are many possible causes for this error. Here's a link to the description of it: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x7e

In short, XP is having difficulty with some of your hardware, or the drivers for that hardware.

Please let us know at exactly which screen the BSOD occurs at. You can also check the setup log files for more info: http://www.mcmcse.com/microsoft/guides/tro...ing_setup.shtml

Found out from HP that it has to do with the SATA/IDE Drivers. I can only install Xp on IDE and My Vista was on SATA. So It worked if I change the driver from SATA To IDE, but I am working on having XP work on the SATA driver with NLite embedded in the installation so I dont have to change the driver each time. Will post a complete description and process that works later.

Thanks for trying to help though John.

Pz.

You can slipstream the SATA drivers into your XP installation disk and won't have to worry about them. From what I've heard (haven't tried it myself), the nLite slipstreaming process will work just fine.

FYI - Today I put XP on an HP system at work using the "IDE" mode and it worked just fine. I was doubtful at first, but the installation proceeded without a hitch. But we've still gotta locate all the XP drivers for the system - and that's the pain of this kind of downgrade!

Agreed, Yea I am working with Nlite right now. The problem I am running into is that I need the driver for Xp to run on SATA for my Intel Chipset. Do you have an idea how to locate the correct one?

Normally the driver is the Intel Matrix driver - but you'll have to visit the Intel website and look up the information for your chipset to ensure that you've got the right one. Try this link as a place to start: http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/
