      For the love of god, what is the BSOD error?

      And you claim to be an IT manager. I cannot fathom why people think mentioning that there is an error, but not what the actual error is is of any use to anyone whatsoever.

      </rant>

      So, what is the error message, that someone may help you with this. Being an IT professional, I would imagine that you might even look up the error yourself, but yeah, we’ll look it up for you.

          Sorry, that’s what it said at the bottom of the post.

          I am not trying to taunt you or insult you, I just can’t understand why people report “errors” without ever giving the error message. It really helps to have that information!

          By the way, I’m not an IT professional at all, and I am constantly floored by the inability of professionals, with the resources at their disposal, to work out some of these issues when I can in my spare time.

          Since you are getting other answers, I’ll just back out, since I have obviously offended you deeply.

          Cheers.

          edit: OK, you still haven’t gotten an answer after providing further information, so I’ve added a post. Good luck, I know it can be a pain to get that to work sometimes.

          “The most popular Blue Screen of Death error”.

          http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/stop0x0000007b.htm

          Since nothing at that article directly addresses Flash drives, we need to address specific issues for USB Flash booting: How did you configure the image on the drive, what type of image is it, and what method did you use to make it bootable?

          Some references which may help you, regardless:
          http://www.google.com/search?num=50&hl=en&newwindow=1&safe=off&&sa=X&ei=ZxolTPj5M4eglAfZlNnZAg&ved=0CCkQBSgA&q=install+XP+from+flash+drive

          Edit: I see from reading your other responses that this works on some systems excepting a few Dells. I could not get this to work on a Latitude D620 no matter what I did. I tried several different methods of imaging (both slip-streamed and not)and making the drive bootable. It may just be the Dell models.

          edit2: Further, I was able to boot the machine from Flash, just not with the XP installation setup. Actually, it booted on one or two tests, but could not complete installation. And this was not a SATA HDD driver problem (XP has no native SATA support, but BIOS was set to an unalterable “compatibility mode”).

        In reply to Your “bootable usb is OK and working fine on other systems”?

        as i write in the title.. am trying to install xp pro from a usb flash drive and its working on other systems except dell gx260, gx270, gx280.

        every thing is ok but when it says : setup is starting windows, a bsod error 0x0000007b comes.

        i want to know if there is any solution to this or the dell series is not compatible?

        thanks for your time
        have a nice day.

      Must you use the USB?

      by charliespencer ·

      In reply to blue screen error while installing xp from usb flash drive

      Have you tried copying the installation files to the hard drive and installing from there? How about a DVD?

      Are you doing a ‘clean’ install on a blank hard drive, or upgrading a previous version of Windows? If upgrading, are you booting from the USB or allowing the previous version to boot and then starting the upgrade?

      • #2869921

        am doing clean install

      It really appears to be either a Hardware Issue with that Hardware not supporting the Loading of the necessary Files from USB or a Driver Issue where the Driver is not set to Load on Startup.

      Yea I know that here you are attempting to install the OS so I really would say that this is a Driver Issue and that you will be unable to load these model Dell’s from a USB Device. 😉

        maybe this could be a driver issue

          If it is

          In reply to maybe this could be a driver issue

          and you have no good way to install a SATA driver after pressing F6 (e.g., from floppy or another Flash drive), and assuming it is not a USB oriented issue: Try turning off AHCI in bios (set it to compatibility mode) if it is not already set thus.

      BSOD Error

      by dmiles ·

      In reply to blue screen error while installing xp from usb flash drive

      Resolution
      Note: Some of these steps may require you to access Windows via Safe Mode. If that’s not possible then skip those steps.

      1.Restart your computer if you haven’t already done so. The STOP 0x0000007B blue screen error might be a fluke.

      2.Did you just install or make a change to a hard drive controller? If so, there’s a good chance that the change you made caused the STOP 0x0000007B error.

      Undo the change and test for the 0x7B blue screen error.

      Depending on what changes you made, some solutions might include:

      ?Remove or reconfigure the newly installed hard drive controller.
      ?Startup with Last Known Good Configuration to undo related registry and driver changes.
      ?Use System Restore to undo recent changes.
      ?Rollback hard drive controller device driver to version prior to your driver update.
      3.Verify that the SCSI chain is correctly terminated, assuming you’re using SCSI hard drives in your computer. Incorrect SCSI termination has been known to cause STOP 0x0000007B errors.

      I joined this site, like me so many of my friends (like you!) end up in this site for no gain,
      if any of u used the app wintoflash or that usb multiboot thing? so after trying all that, still ur stuck at the bsod with the above said error.
      Try changing ur sata drive in ur bios to IDE , it shud be in AHCI or for some RAID.
      XP doesnt support sata still.
      And I’m 14 years old
