loading xp on a new hd...keep getting this...

  cham 12:46 20 Apr 2004

The blue stop error comes after windows setup has loaded files and comes on soon after setup is loading windows. It reads as follows: A problem has been detected & windows has been shut down to avoid damage to the pc. The problem seems to be caused by the following file: Setupdd.sys PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA Tech info:***STOP 0x00000050(0xC368E131,0x00000000,0xF99D5417,0x00000000) ***setupdd.sys-Address F99D5417 base at F999E000, Datestamp 3b7d8507.

"STOP 0x0000008e" Error Message During Windows XP Setup
Applies To
This article was previously published under Q315335
When you install Microsoft Windows XP, you may receive a STOP error message similar to one of the following during Setup:

STOP 0x0000008e

Additionally, if you troubleshoot by removing all unnecessary hardware devices that are installed on the computer, and then running Setup, you may receive an error message similar to the following:

Setup cannot copy the file Setupdd.sys.
This behavior can occur if one of the following conditions is true:
One or more of the random access memory (RAM) modules that are installed on your computer are faulty.
The RAM configuration is incompatible with Windows XP.
To troubleshoot and resolve this behavior, follow these steps:
Remove some of the memory modules that are installed on the computer. Leave at least the amount of RAM required for the computer to start and run Windows XP.

The recommended amount of RAM to run Windows XP is 128 megabytes (MB). The minimum is 64 MB and the maximum is 4 gigabytes.

For example, if two 256-MB memory modules are installed on your computer, remove one of the memory modules.
Restart the computer, and then run Setup.
If you again receive the error message that is described in the "Symptoms" section of this article, proceed to step 4.
Remove a different memory module, or install the RAM in a different memory slot.
Restart your computer, and then rerun Setup.

You may need to restart your computer several times in order to identify the specific memory modules that are not working correctly.
