Sounds like a misplaced standoff under the mobo.
Both power connectors to the mobo connected from the PSU?

The error code you mentioned in the duplicated topic is below.

0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues. Check Event Viewer (EventVwr.msc) for additional information.


You mentioned you are getting this while installing XP correct?
Where did the installation disk come from?
