Error message during Win XP SP2 re-install 0x000000ca
Posted on 2006-11-18
I'm in the process of passing a PC onto a relative and used Eraser nuke boot disk to clear the H/D.
Now when trying to reinstall Win XP Pro SP2 I get an error message when "Setup is starting windows"
The message is "Plug and Play detected an error most likely caused by a faulty driver" it then goes on to tell me to remove any new hard or software (this is an old PC which was working prior to the H/D wipe) There is nothing plugged into the PC apart from the mouse, keyboard and monitor.
The error code is: 0x000000ca (0x00000001, 0x82f379e0, 0x82f33e30, 0x00000000) I couldn’t find anything on MS help to match this problem.
I have checked the BIOS and Plug & Play support and switched it off and on without any effect (M/B is Asus A7A266, CPU is Athlon XP 2800, 768mb ram, HD Seagate 160 GB.
Please can anyone help, this was only meant to be a couple of hour’s job.
Thanks in advance
