I assembled a new system and trying to install XP Pro. I have a new 320 GB SATA HDD.
MB - Asus M2NPV-VM
DDR2 800Mhz 2GB kit
320 GB SATA [Seagate]
I first modified the Boot Sequence to boot from Floppy and partition the drive. [Did create one partition - using Win Me Boot disk]. (As I couldn't get the XP to load my SATA drives using the 6 XP Boot diskette)
Sencondly, I changed the boot sequence to load from CD and booted from XP CD [the one I "slipstreamed" for SP2].
It booted fine and loaded my drivers and I was on my way to install the OS after formatting the drives to NTFS.
When the system restarted for the second time (after setting up - Local time information/Administer passwords etc...) - the Windows XP logo screen appeared and then just in couple of second got the BSoD with the error
***STOP:0X000000ED (0X892DDE30, 0XC000014F, 0X00000000, OX00000000)
(Googled for this error but, invain)
I checked the BIOS to see what is wrong - though not having much experience in system setup and configuration.
I checked for the "Repair" option while setup - it never came up - so can't do CHKDSK or FIXBOOT.
Currently, while writing this - I have deleted the partitions. and recreated a single partition [can't format it to FAT32] and trying to do a fresh install (formatting the whole partition as NTFS) again.
Out of 320 I m able to just see 298 - anyways, proceeding the setup - hope I get through this.
This is my first time so kinda little worried. I will be glad if you could point me in some direction.
