Hi all,

Trying to setup a new PC, having problem after problem with BSOD's. Heres whats happening:

First off while trying to format the hard drive this BSOD occured: UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Then after trying other IDE cables / new hard drive i got this error after the format during XP install: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
Also another time i got this: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

Another error was during XP install again, in a pop up error window saying "Isass.ese" error (cant remember exactly)

Basically, i've spent the whole day going from 1 error to the next in a cycle and still havent managed to get windows installed.

PC is as follows:

ABIT-KV7-V Mobo (bios updated)
Sempron 2300+
256mb Crucial Ram
Maxtor 40GB Hard Disk
Sapphire Radeon 9200SE

Very basic machine i know, but does anyone have any ideas?

Have tried new RAM, new HDD, not sure what else to try, please help :tazz:

Is it a legal version of windows that you are using? Yeah I know it could be a dumb question, but alot of people who think they have legit copies actually dont, which sucks but it happens :tazz:

If it is a legit copy of windows, try taking out all the cards in the PCI/PCI-Xpress/AGP slots and then try to install windows XP. If your mobo doesn't have onboard video then obviously you will have to keep the Radeon 9200SE card in to install :tazz:
