I'm trying to install Windows 2000 on a Dell Dimension 8300.

When Windows 2000 Pro begins the setup process from the CD Rom an abrupt
Stop error appears, with strange cause and possible symptoms.
___________________________________________________________________________________
*** STOP: 0x0000001E (0xC0000006,0x804EA322,0x00000000,0x002A83CD)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

*** Address 804EA322 base at 80400000, DateStamp 3ee650b3 - ntoskrnl.exe.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your
computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in
the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for the
driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory
options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove
or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced
Startup Options, and then Select Safe Mode.

Refer to your Getting Started manual for more informa on troubleshooting
Stop errors.

The disk is integrated with Service Pack 4, I checked the the knowledged for
answers. The only possible clue I got was that it could be my USB devices
(Scanner and Printer) thats preventing the setup process. I unplugged them
and re-ran setup, but got the same error message. What must I do now? Oh, my
mouse is USB only, could that also be causing an issue because Window 2000
is trying to detect it also?

To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install CD-Rom or setup
disks. The set of four install disks can be created from your Windows 2000
CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute
makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the
prompts.

When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
letter assignments with your new install.

Be sure to apply these to your new install before connecting to any network.

You didn't mention the drive controller (possibly SCSI, or ultra DMA, or
ATA100, or raid, or serial ATA), but you may need to boot the Windows 2000
setup disks or CD-Rom and *F6* very early and very important (at setup is
inspecting your system) in the setup to prevent drive controller detection,
and select S to specify additional drivers. Then later you'll be prompted to
insert the manufacturer supplied Windows 2000 driver for your drive's
controller in drive "A"

If you wait and then S to specify additional drivers, then it may be too
late as Windows 2000 Setup at this point may have already assigned the
resources your drive's controller is wanting to use.
