IRQL not less or equal error during installation

I have XP currently installed on partition 1 which is my first hard drive. I do custom install for windows seven and put it to partition 2 which is my other hard drive (formatted) and let it do its thing. It then tells me to restart so i do and then it goes to the logon screen and says installing/setting up windows, then shortly after that it goes to the blue screen error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I dont get it, can someone please help me out and tell me whats wrong and how to fix this?

  2. It sounds like either a hardware issue or more likely a memory leak, which has become a bit of a common problem for some.

    There is a link to the fix. To install it, try and see if you can get into safe mode.
