HELLO

 

This is a Hp Desktop Media Center m7067c

 

It seems that every time it boots it goes in to BSOD

and states drivers/pci.sys is missing or currupt

 

So I am installing xp oem and doing a chkdsk on it but to no avail I also tried removing the pci cards

to no avail.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks guys

Since you have the installation disc do a repair installation.

 

Boot the computer from the XP CD. You may need to change boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.

When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below  

This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
   Windows XP to run on your computer:

   To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

   To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

   To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
 
To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.
You do not want to choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press  R.

Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.   If Repair isn't one of the option end the installation, this will mean that you will need to do a fresh installation of XP.

The repair will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot, the repair installation will continue after the reboot.

Thank-you

 

The only problem is there is no R for repair if I go with new installation. :(

 

However I do have the option before I go into it which I have done a couple things:

 

fixmbr

fixboot

and the all mighty

chkdsk /r

 

But nothing has worked

 

I wonder if I can copy this driver "pci.sys" to its directory?

 

Ill keep you posted

 

Thank-you!

Was the disc that you used a installation disc?

 

You can download a legal ISO file for XP.

Then I don't understand why the option for "R" wasn't there.
