Ive recently put together a new system. Im using a ABIT SG-80 board. Everything is connected properly, Ive double checked this (maybe triple checked). However when I boot it goes through its normal sequence to where it should be loading up the windows login. Instead I get a blue screen of death which in gyst tells me theres a problem with my harddrive. This harddrive works on other computers in my house however.

The stop error i end up getting is:
Stop 0x0000007B

Thanks for the help.

Ive tried the resolutions in the topic you linked to me to no avail. Would this mean that this motherboard is having a hardware malfunction and i would have to return it?

Thank you for your help so far.

Did you perform a fresh installation of windows on that drive in that system or was windows pre-installed on the drive under another computer & you then transferred the drive into the new system?

It was not a fresh install.

Id also like to comment that i attempted to boot from floppy but i received another error.

\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. The error code is 4096

Sorry for double posting but thanks that was the issue.

Someone had told me that you could swap XP drives in and out but that definetly wasnt the case!

Unfortunately transfering a drive into another system & expecting Windows to cope with updating every single driver required by the new hardware, rarely ever works smoothly. Even when it does appear to work, it can often result in a buggy install. In the long run, it's safer & often quicker just to wipe the drive & start again.
