Hi

I am trying to install XP Pro onto a Duron 700 box that was previously running W2K with no problems.

The system has an Adaptec 1200A Raid card in it with two idetical 20mb drives in RAID 0 mode (mirrored). The array is set up.

Windows setup runs fine from the cd. I specify the RAID card driver and everything seems fine.

The PC reboots and we get the windows loading screen.

Then we get the blue screen of death

STOP: 0x0000007b (0xF9E48640, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000 0x000000000)

Please help as this is driving me nuts.

Nathan

See this:

If you are running Microsoft Windows 2000, you must convert all Ftdisk volume sets to dynamic volumes before you upgrade to Windows XP.

Hi,

I've got the same problem and found the anwer at www.adaptec.com:

You can't use a Windows XP-CD whith service pack 1 or 2 integrated. You have to use the Windows XP-CD >without any service pack<.

p.s.: The microsoft-supportpage is not very helpful for this problem.
