    Hello!
    Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum, but this seemed relevant for the setup.

    I am having an issue when attempting to install Windows XP from a disc. The setup will load up until when it says, 'Setup is starting Windows...', when a BSOD will always come up with a STOP error message.
    Looking around, it seems to be a dead end chasing up what the STOP message was.
    I decided to rip the CD and put it into an ISO, so I could test it in Virtualbox. Upon booting, it installed and ran perfectly.
    So, I am suspecting that it may have something to do with my system.
    I am running an ASUS X58L series laptop with an Intel Celeron - M575 running at 2.00Ghz and 1GB of PC2 RAM running Windows Vista with a Intel Internal GMA X3100 Gfx card.
    Help would be appreciated.

    This is all the information it would display, along with the 'A problem has been detected' gubbins:
    *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7983528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    When searching around, Google was a pile of crap and showed things completely different to my error message.

    UPDATE: After heavy research, I have found that the 0x0000007B error code means the following:
    This BSOD means that the Microsoft Windows operating system has lost access to the system partition during startup. BSOD error code 0x0000007B may also show "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" on the same blue screen.
    It didn't show "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" on the screen, so I just hope it is correct

    boot into a recovery disk and run checkdisk, if you do not have a sata drive run the recovery console with fixmbr and fixboot, if you have a sata drive, download Hiren's boot disk and burn to a cd or a flash drive and then within Mini-XP run it from there, you should also run checkdisk with the /r parameter, run as many times as it takes till it finds no errors.

    I did use a CD with Hiren's that I had lying around to run fixmbr and all sorts, but it just didn't work.
    Then, I found a utility under the 'Other' section that will allow me to copy installation files from the CD to the SATA HDD. So, I tried that, with no luck.
    Then, I grabbed an old 32GB SSD that I had lying around to test if it would work with that.
    VoilĂ ! The XP setup ran, with no issues.
    After grabbing a few drivers from my HDD, I now have a fully-functional XP installation with the benefit of an SSD.
    Turns out it was Professional. :D
    Thanks for the suggestion, though.
