Im trying to build a Windows XP computer ( HP WX8000 Workstation ). However during the set up it gives a blue screen. This is the information that i have.

> Set up is inspecting your computers hardware confirguration

> Windows Set up

>Set up loading files ( during this stage i get this error message )

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damamge to your computer.

If this is the first time that you've seen this stop error screen, restart you computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure its properly configured and terminated.

Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive surruptio and the restart your computer
