Windows XP Blue Screen in the GUI part of setup

  VOT Productions 22:39 21 Sep 2010

After problems with my Dell Dimension, I bought a new PC.

However it Bluescreened at GUI part of setup.

0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0X898EB308, 0x898EB47C, 0x805D115E)

It's not Master/Stave because it's SATA, it bluescreened at the Easiest Windows you will use text part, it's a bad eBay Machine.

Windows XP Pro of course!
Intel Core 2 Quad
Intergraded graphics.
A Mini-ITX motherboard from BIOSTAR
BIOS is American something something.

This machine is driving me mad.

Did you install the sata drivers prior to installing the OS?.

The problem is at the setup from Hard Disk, way before formatting

Boot to recovery console and run chkdsk /r

then retry the install

Will it corrupt the install files on Hard Disk?

If it as more than one stick of ram, try with only one at a time to test them. Turn Power of when pulling and pluging in Ram

I have one.

By the way the HDD was formated yesterday so chkdsk will not help

When you formated, if there was a problkem with the drive, it would have informed you

And it could still be faulty Ram
