i just got my computer put together and now when i try to install windows it says set up is loading files goes through everything and then when it says startup is opening windows it goes to a blue screen (eww) that says a problem has been detect and windows has shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.
if this is the first time you have seeen this stop error screen, restart your computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps:
check for viruses on your computer. remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. tun CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. then tecnical information:
*** stop: 0x0000007b (0xf78d2524,0xc0000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000) this is a new build all new parts the hard drive is used but there should be nothing wrong with it as it was a working hard drive freshly formated.

other than that my computer is on and running i can get in my bios with no problems runs fine just issue with windows install. i would appreciate any help anyone can give thanks.

this is my computer the only thing not on my list there is my 80gb hd that im using its a sata drive but i guess that could be the problem? the computer does recognize the drive in bios.

I got it figured out. I needed to change my hard drive setting to ide mode so it would recognize my harddrive. when i did that everything worked no problem but now i installed my sata drivers and i still cannot switch to sata mode or acih mode or whatever it is achi i cant remember what it is off the top of my head.

Format your system, Go into the BIOS, there check that if the SATA controller is set to AHCI then change it to IDE mode, if it is at IDE from default, Continue installing windows. You will go fine with the installation.
There is no need to install the drivers. Even me did so. This problem of blue screen mostly arises when installing windows XP.
