Hi there,

I have a dell dimension 5150, 1gig ram, pentium D and 320gig hdd. I am trying to install whs 08 on to it but it blue screens about 5 minutes after it says theres 51 minutes remaining.

 i first thought it was the hard drive but i bought a new one with no luck, then i thought it was the cd but i got a different one and the same thing happens.

Its the generic blue screen message

Any ideas?, its driving me crazy
