Hi Dbl-Trbl,

Have you tried checking the drive you're installing it on? It may be the problem.

Is your ram matched?
test it with this
http://www.simmtester.com/PAGE/products/doc/docinfo.asp
are you booting to the cd, and partitioning and formatting from it?

stevenlewisCommented:
the other thing to try is shut off the external cache (in the bios)
if it sets up it may be very slow

the trap usually indicates a mem problem, run the mem test

First best is boot a known good DOS boot diskette. Use it to view and review access to the HW, RAM, HD, etc. If it can't do it, XP won't. Once it does, then one can move on to other settings and capabilities, including potential DOS tools.

Boot CD. Select repair. See what the XP install thinks of the config.

Try HD in another box. Work?

> and western digital 120G HD


also checl bios for permitting such a large drive, >65GB and validate it is primary master and separate from CD ribbon. Review all items detected by bios at bootup. This is white on bleck, but prior to exception errors

Do you have the CPU or RAM overclocked or undervoltage?  Check your bus speeds and multipliers.  Does the motherboard support a 120GB HDD?  Some WesternDig HDD's require WesternDig's partition/HDD/controller software to operate properly.

There is a chance that the ide controller is having a problem.  Try to swap the devices that IDE0 and IDE1 are using.  If that fails use the HDD as master and the CDROM as slave on the same cables.

Unfortunately without access to the XP installer source code we are all just shooting in the dark.

In general, a blue screen at any time indicates a hardware problem.

I have noted on >80G WD drives that the default jumper setting is cable select. The little blurb that comes in the retail box recommends leaving it at that to avoid "data corruption and access issues."

Try to load all of the defaults in the BIOS and see what happens then.  It is possible that there is some setting in there that is messing you up.

tekkgodAuthor Commented:
well it was the cpu
the mobo doesnt like it for some reason
it likes a slower duron instead of the xp1700
the manufacturer claims to support up to amd xp 2200
but this fixed it
oh well
