Can't install Windows XP Pro.
Posted on 2009-05-15
When I am installing windows XP pro just during the start of the installation (it is blue screen straight after I boot from CD) just when it says starting windows at the bottom the screen will go completely blank for a few seconds and then another blank screen will come up saying:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop message screen restart your computer.
If it appears again follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. (Yup got 120GB)
If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with manufacturer updates (I dont have windows so I havent installed any drivers)
Try changing video adapters (am going to soon when my mate gets here with a old 4MB PCI graphics card)
Check with your hardware vendor for any bios updates (have updated bios to latest version)
Disable cahing or shadowing memory (have disabled the memory caching)
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart your computer and press F8 to select advanced start up options then select safe mode (there is no safe mode as there is no OS installed)
How can this be fixed?
