  I needed to reinstall XP Home on my Toshiba Satellite A100-225.  It was running slow.  Wiped the HD --put in the XP Home Install CD. followed everything incl. formatting.  Install first phase went smoothly,--the reboot produced a BSOD with following:


STOP: C0000221{Bad Image Checksum}

The Image CRYPTUI.dll is possibly corrupt.

The header Checksum does not match the computed Checksum.


 I re-installed again, thinking there was a glitch on the install, but it produced same BSOD/Message.

Thinking maybe the CD was damaged --I tried to install XP Pro --same BSOD:

Then decided to change Harddrive---No difference--both Home and Pro same BSOD.!

Looking on 'net for ideas, I saw an entry that maybe the CMOS was the fault--dead--the Notebook is pretty old and I got it second hand 4 yrs ago--been a good servant.   A local Service shop wouldn't touch it---CMOS is soldered direct onto mainboard.  However, I opened the Notebook following an online video,--desoldered the CMOS no problem, and ordered a replacement.  Checked the old one for voltage---2.9v for a 3v battery isn't bad, and it's a rechargeable battery! Would that cause the BSOD?

  The CD/DVD Drive has never given any problems.

If anyone can throw some light on this and where I go from here, I would be very grateful, because I just don't see why this should be happening---I've reinstalled using these 2 CDs a few times and never had anything like this happen before.  many thanks   Robbie

I would suggest posting over in the Internal Hardware forums for assistance with this.

This is because of the CMOS error, your statement that the CMOS was dead, and that you've de/resoldered the CMOS chip.
