i've been trying to re-install windows this weekend and i've had zero luck with it. i got a stop error message:

0x0000007b (oxf78d2524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

on the blue screen it suggested to run a virus scan, which i did using Avast. it found virus' on my computer and recommended to move them to the virus chest, so i did that.

next, it had me run CHKDSK /f. so i went ahead and did that as well. but i'm still unable to re-install windows. can anyone help me out with this, not sure what to do from here.

Is this during the XP setup page where it's copying the files? Try looking at the below two links to see if they are of any help:

so far i've had a chance to give the advice in Link 2 a try. it talked about getting into the bios screen and changing the SATA controller to IDE...however, when i access my bios menu i do not see any type of option to make this change. unless you have any further advice on it, i would have to rule out Link 2 as a working option for myself at this point in time.

next, i'll be looking into Link 1 to see if i have any different results. i will keep my progress logged here. thanks for the information thus far

That depends if you are using SATA hard drives or if the board even have those SATA connectors on them. Otherwise, you will need to rule it out like you said.
