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

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.
