im trying to install xp on my new build and it acts like its downloading all the xp components, but at the very end it says starting windows and then gives me the blue screen of death. some one told me that the virus protection needs to be disabled in bios, but my bios seems to have no section for that unless im missing it. This is my first build and any help would be appreciated
Thanx

There is no virus protection feature in BIOS.
What does the BSOD say?

the bsod says a problem has been detected and windows has shut down


check for viruses, remove any newly installed hard drives or hd controllers, check hard drive to insure it is properlly configured, check hard drive for corruption.


technical info

stop: 0xc0000034 (0xf78d2524,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

thats exactly how the bsod is laid out

let me know if this means anything to you


thanx :

The error indicates some hardware problem, most likely, RAM.
Not enough RAM, bad RAM stick, incorrect RAM, and such.
How much RAM do you have?
Are you sure, it's correct RAM?
If you have more than one RAM stick, try the installation with one RAM stick at a time.

i have 2 corsair 1 gig ram each ddr2 675 mhz 1024 mb each. my mo bo is an intel dp35dp with raid option. i pulled both sticks of ram and tried 1 at a time each stick and got the same bsod. Im not sure if the ram sticks are compatible with my mobo, seems like they should be.

Check your motherboard manual here: http://www.intel.com...b/CS-026646.htm (page 34).
Not only, you have to have correct RAM type, but it also has to be installed in certain way.
