I've only had BSODs and trouble installing windows when I had certain cards installed into the PCI slots. So before installing, make sure to take out all unnecessary cards out of the PCI slots. I remember one time I had a USB PCI card installed, and it wouldn't work; but when I would take it out, it would work fine.

I though that that only applies to manufactured machines. Meaning if you change your mobo on a dell machine then its not usuable. But a custom built machine does not matter.

This copy of XP Pro shouldn't have any problem. It is my Dad's companies copy, and he was alloud to install it on our computer because he uses it for work, or something like that.

Ok, I tried reseting the CMOS battery, unplugging everything that was unecessary, and putting in an old PCI video card that I use when I am having problems. I got the same error, but this time I wrote it down for you guys to disect. :

Quote:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adaptors.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable DOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart you computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Info

STOP: 0x0000007E (0X0000005, 0XF78360BF, 0XF7C82208, 0XF7C81F08)

I do not have a clue what to do....

Considering it has pci.sys error, it could be that the Windows xp installation does not have the drivers yet for the 7900gt and is causing some kind of malfunction with the pci-x. Do you have a different video card you can try and install Windows with and then once its done you can install the 7900gt when windows is fully installed.

Also take out the Audigy sound card as well. Try to install with bare minimum.

Yes i know it never updates. I was just saying it needs an update after the install.

Tototally overlooked the part where you tried to the old video card already. Here is the same issue you are having on a different forum.

Specifically, I tried bios upgrades and downgrades, changing video cards, using the WD hard drive tools, removing all expansion cards and connectors, and on and on and on. Then, I finally used an XP disc with SP2 slipstreamed in (i.e. the latest XP disc) and it worked perfectly. So, a pci.sys error (BSOD) is not a hardware problem at all, but a windows version issue. XP with SP2 is the only version that will work when there is a PCI-E slot. I posted this here to share, and hopefully help others avoid the 11 hours of trial and error. XP with SP2!!!
That was the solutions. Not sure if you have tried this yet.
