Guys this problem is driving me nuts. Im installing windows xp pro on a somwhat new system. This system was working 100% before the install. When i boot the cd, everything is fine. It goes threw the pre copy phase, loads all those files then it attempts to start windows. Then it just gives me a blue screen saying Session5_Initialization_Failed ... Ive tried everything, flashed the bios, disabled every port (usb, serial, printer) onboard sound, revomed all pci devices. I only have one ram module, cd rom and the hard disk and the grahpics card. It still gives me the error. So i took that hard disk out, put it in an older machine and used the same xp cd. It installed fine, no errors. So i get the drive out and install it back into the system that had problems installing it. It will still not load. I tried safe mode, it will stop at a driver called mup.sys... I am totally out of ideas, any help here??

duron 1.2
SL-75drv5 mother board
256mb ddr pc 2100
120 gig hard disk
16X dvd rom drive
geforce 2 440mx

They should make a brand of clothing called Cisco Router and Switch... Yah, that beats the hell out of Ambercrombie and whatever...

try running memtest86 to check your RAM. I had a similar problem installing Win98SE, I was getting all kinds of weird errors. When I checked the RAM, a stick was bad. Pulled it out, and everything installed great.

Spec:
Intel P4 2.4B
MSI 645E Max-U Mobo
512MB DDR333
GF3 ti200 64MB
SB Live 5.1
WD 60GB (Storage)
Maxtor 6GB (System)
Maxtor 120GB
LG 24x24x32 CDR
WIN2K PRo SP4

Ok wtf... WEll guys i got it working... heres the wholllleee story... This machine would run windows 2000, Me, 98 or anything else... Come to xp? IT SAYS [-peep-] YOU... I removed every piece of none critical hardware... And replaced the ram... No luck... I even put in a different power supply no luck... Then i was like ok its either the mother board or cpu... So i took a duron 700 out of my other desktop... Then i booted the computer... Guess what happened???? IT WORKS... Now im sittin here... Wondering why does this duron 1.2 not like xp... Im confused... lol I guess i really did earn my A+ lol....
Hope this helps someone else...

Of coarse it is "cheaper!!!". That is the true, because you do not pay yerself for yer own time you wasting on "figuring out" the "problemas" with AMD ;)

And what problems are you talking about? I'm on a budget, so I always use AMD. I've never had any problems. :wink:
