So I'm reinstalling Windows XP onto my PC. I put my disc in and boot to disc in the BIOS and everything seems to be going fine. Windows setup starts and says it's loading drivers and then I get A BSOD. Here is the text of the BSOD:
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 changing 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.
*** STOP: (0x0000005, 0xF748E0BF, 0xFF78DA208, 0xF78D9F08)
*** pci.sys - Address F748E0BF base at F7487000, DateStamp 3b7d855c
That's an exact copy of it. So I can't even get to the point I need to be able to reformat the computer. What can I do to get past this? Restarting the computer just puts me back in the same place so I'm stuck. Any help would be appreciated.
