I am not sure if I have made it too difficult to understand :(

Does this help?

Windows NT, 2000, 98, XP will crash with an Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap blue screen error immediately after, or while running software, often when trying to access a network, or the Internet with Internet Explorer. May also cause the computer to reboot or completely lock up.

Symantec has issued a LiveUpdate to address this issue. Run the Norton LiveUpdate and download all updates.

Hmm after reading your other thread try attaching the 20 gig drive and boot into the bios. Make sure virus checking is disabled and thet the ide for the hard drive is set to DMA. (If it is try setting it to PIO)

Hi AndySD

I am not sure if you have read the link to my last thread. I have had lots of problems with my 20gb hard drive and I am currently using my 8gb.

I dont know much about trap errors though seems worrying as

I havent mangaged to get it working for example in the thread I am unable to load XP has it gives me a corrupted file (Before Getting To XP Setup) and asks me to restart my comp it is still on NTFS too I had thought about putting it in as slave trying to use partition magic to format it but I dont if it will work.

thanks for your response

and just to add I tried using the XP disk whilst only using my 8gb and it went through the set up fine so its a bit strange.

I am using win 98 though at the moment

Hi Andy,

I am related to Scooby43 and am aware of the problem he is having. I believe the following details apply: 20.4Gb Fujitsu UDMA1005400rpm
