How old is the cdrom drive?
Was there any changes made to the hardware prior to all this starting?

BSOD outside of Windows
Start your system and at the Second post screen tap on F8 to get to the Boot Menu
Use the Arrow Keys to Scroll down to the line that says "Auto Start On Error" and highlight it.
Click Enter to disable it
The system should reboot and if not then do so.
When the BSOD shows it will stop so that you can reply with the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
Now insert a disk and do your normal bootup.
Hopefully it will stop and give you a error message instead of rebooting.
Please let me know if it does and what the error message says.

I downloaded the material you mentioned above and the system did basically the same thing. It did add the following:, "*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005,0xf748e0bf,0xf78da208,0xf78d9f08)*** pci.sys - Address f748e0bf base at f7487000, Datestamp 3b7d855c
The computer is an HP xw4300 workstation with XP pro service pack 3. I can't get into safe mode as the system just repeats and repeats unless I move the boot over to the CD and then I reach the blue screen.
I haven't used this computer for a year or so and now have a new use for it, so I would be very happy to just reload the OS as I really don't need any of the old files so I need not be careful to protect info on the disc. Perhaps I could just move the hard drive to another computer and "clean" it there but I'm guessing there is something from HP that would be required for proper opperation.
