On a new build, I got to the point where I was installing XP home. I all the sudden get stopped by a BSOD pci.sys error.
I am not able to proceed any farther and must abort.
i tried making an XP SP2 streamline install disk but for this and that reasons unable to. I read this cures the problem.
How can I get around this error or fix it. thanks

I've read that disabling PCI Express in your BIOS before starting the installation can sometimes get around this problem.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

A slipstreamed or MS SP2 CD seems to solve it.
