I have a laptop which has a japanase OS (Win XP) installed on it. Now what I'm trying to do (and I hope it will be possible with your expertise) is to reinstall a Win XP with an "english version". So, I got a win xp pro sp2 (OEM) and start to boot from cdrom. Unfortunately I've got an error message while the window setup is loading: :blink:

Technical information:
****STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF9972524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) inaccessible_boot_device

BTW, I have also done the ffwng:

1. Check the website of the manufacturer to see if I can get any info about it, but its written in japanase.
2. I have run chkdsk/f on the hard disk drive and there's no physical bad sectors. \
3. I have deleted all the partitions and format the hard disk using fdisk.exe

But I still encountered the STOP error everytime I try to reinstall the XP. What does it mean? :whistling: I'm not a technical person but I can follow instructions.

I would appreciate all your help to fix this problem . Thank you.

Thanks for your reply. I've visited the website that you've suggested and the nearest possible cause that I can apply to my case is the Device Driver issue in particular with OEM driver support (since I've got an WIN XP -OEM CD installation). But I can't download the Win XP setup boot disk because this laptop doesn't support a floppy drive. What do you suggest that I should do? Thanks.
