BSOD when installing XP

I hope I'm in the right section for this I just built a new system and everything works up until I try to install win xp. I get the BSOD saying:

A problem has been detected & windows shut down to prevent damage.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error message yada yada.

Tech Info: Stop: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0xF748EDBF, 0xF 78DA208,
0xF78D9F08)

pci.sys- address F748E0BF Base at F748000, DateStamp 3b7d855c

This is my rig:
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P P45 775 R (ver. 1.6)
CPU INTEL|C2Q Q9400 2.66G 775 45N R
MEM 2Gx2|OCZ OCZ2G10664GK R
PSU COOLMAX|CU-700B 700W RT
ASUS DRW 22 B1S DVD Burner
Seagate ST350041DAS 500Gb Sata HD
VGA ZOTAC|ZT-95TEK2M-FSL 9500GT R 1Gb 128 bit

This is a whole new beast for me. I do older computers. I've never messed with Sata drives or Pcie 2.0 slots. Bios finds all the drives. I'm stumped.
Can someone unstump me please?

  1. You are probably using XP SP1. Try slipstreaming SP2 into your install disc. You can do that using a program like nlite.

  2. I have Win XP home 2001 version. Does that have sp1 in it?
    I'll give it a try and see what happens.
    Thanks.
  3. SP2 was released in 2004. It's likely the problem.
  4. Ok Thanks.
  5. I installed my old hard drive with XP on it instead of slipstreaming. (just to see what happens) it worked! Lucky me!

    If it's a previous install, you've still got old drivers on that drive. It's recommended to do a fresh install of windows when switching motherboards.
  7. Yeah, it worked ok I just needed to get it halfway running so I could make sure everything worked.
    I finally broke down and scraped up some cash and got Windows 7.
    Thanks.
