Here it is - short form.
New Seagate SATA 80G drive
Format and write zeros with Seagate utility.
Load XP Pro, and then SP1.
Load most of my programs - all is well.
Load Office XP, and get the BSOD - in a re-boot loop.
(BLAH BLAH in the middle about protecting my PC) ..then at the bottom:
***viamraid.sys - address F820B9A0 base at F82C1000, datestamp 4063c304
I have redone this 5 times.
Thanks for any and all help.
