In trying to set up XP on a new partition on my newer PC, XP loads from the CD drive but when it tries to start, I get the following blue screen error message:
"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 for viruses on your computer, Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D663C, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"
Win 7 runs fine so I would think that should rule out the hard drive issues. A complete virus scan was run but the problem persists. The hardware is an HP Omni 220-1080qd all-in-one desktop with an Intel i7-2600S quad core processor and 8 Gb memory. I used Windows disk management to shrink the C:/ partition by 20Gb and formatted the new 20Gb XP partition with NTFS. HP tech support was not helpful.
Any ideas on how to get XP to start?
