I was following the instructions of Kev1952's "Repairing Windows XP" post. I got as far as "Press 'R' and setup will then take over and do the necessary work." At one point it stopped, displaying a BSOD and the error BAD_POOL_CALLER and the code 0x0000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x00000cd4, 0x00340045, 0xe1ea78c)
I rebooted several times, but never got past that error. Finally I tried to go back and start on the hard drive instead of the Windows CD, but every time I do it starts Setup again, and insists that I put the CD back in. Then it hangs with the BAD_POOL_CALLER screen again.
So I must either (1) start from the HD and bypass the Setup in progress, or (2) continue the Setup and skip whatever component causes the BAD_POOL_CALLER error.
My techie friend thinks it's happening because the CD is SP1a and the computer has SP2. Any ideas?
