XP Install.....Part 2

Ok, you best reject this answer if you can get some help from elsewhere. However, here is an install procedure option of the LAST resort for any Win NT, Win 2000, or Win XP installation that is giving lots of trouble. Be warned this option will takemuch longer than a normal install. This is best done to a clean hard drive just formatted, and uses DOS commands.

1. Boot the computer using a a Win 98 boot disk or similar with the option to use a CD.

2. Place your Windows XP/2000/NT CD in the CD.

3. Access the CD via DOS commands commonly this will be E depending upon your system set up.

4. use command CD i386 'enter' to change to the directory i386.

5. use the command winnt 'enter' to run the program called winnt.

6. Then follow the windows prompts when they appear, this usually takes 2 to 10 times longer than the normal install. But it allows an installation via a DOS interface without any existing windows o/s being on the system.


This process usesthe old inbuilt default intsallation process and it takes longer as it will load all drivers before working out which it wants to use, the current autoload process actually checks the system first and then loads only the drivers it thinks you need, thus it is a lot quicker. This install system will work with a system without 'boot from CD' and will usually allow you to do a full clean install with most 'upgrade' version CDs.

But as I said at the start, use this as an option of last resort, Ihave seen it take overnight to complete on an AMD Athlon 1.4 ghz with 256 MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and fancy graphics card.

Take a look at the trouble shooting steps at the following site ...

("STOP 0x0000008e" Error Message During Windows XP Setup)

Also, another but more general article ...

http://tinyurl.com/9ilj
("STOP 0x0000001E" Error Message During Windows Setup)

From what the first article talks about, it might have something to do with one of your RAM sticks being bad or the type of RAM just not being compatible with XP.

Hope this helps.
