Check the memory in the PC. If you have two strips of memory and it doesn't need dual strips, remove one stri and try again. If it still bluse screens, put the removed strip in on it's own.
If you have one memory strip run a memory diagnostics tool (Microsoft does one and also available on Ultimate Boot CD)

This could also be defective harddisk or bootsector virus - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103

For your new HDD, your windows CD haven't got the good sata drivers.

When the CD not recognize the HDD or the SATA controller then there are a 0x0000007B blue screen.

Use a software like nlite for add chipset drivers on the windows CD

Try changing the SATA controller in bios to compatibility mode (IDE mode) often windows xp has a hard time seeing certain SATA drive during install. After install change it back.

7b is inaccessible boot device :  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103  -->points to disk
C3-2 is bad pool caller  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/265879              -->  points to ram

you mean you have that when you try to install XP ?  it may need the sata driver - hit F6 to load it, or slipstream it

then you have more than 1 problem imo
test the 2 disk drives on another system, and try to start the xp install on it

or use knoppic cd

mcrmgAuthor Commented:

nobusCommented:
so the disks are OK?
then try if you can do a system restore  : http://www.ubcd4win.com/

nobusCommented:

mcrmgAuthor Commented:
stupid question, where can I find System Restore in ubcd?  I could not find it..thx
0
 
nobusCommented:
sorry - there is no system restore, but you can try the regreswiz under registry tools.
 it will only copy the registry from a restore point  - it usually works
otherwise look at this method  :  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An easier way is to boot from a Bart PE CD (or UBCD4Win CD) and use the file manager for manipulating files. Here  the procedure :
1. rename c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM to c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM.bak
2. Navigate to the System Volume Information folder.
it contains some restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".
The restore points are in  folders starting with "RPx under this folder.
3. In such a folder, locate a Snapshot subfolder. This is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder:  C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
4. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following file to the c:\windows\system32\config folder
 _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
5. Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
6. Exit Bart PE, reboot and test

Use a fairly recent restore point from at least a day or two prior to problem occurring .

** you can add the other hives also with this procedure
