Keep getting BSoD when booting

May 11, 2011 at 18:30:21
Specs: Windows 7, Pentium D EE 955/2GB
I upgraded my cpu from Pentium D 940, to a Pentium D EE 955. My mobo is compatible with both, and I was able to boot into Windows XP once, and now I have different hdd hooked up, and I keep getting 0x00009c errors. When I go to boot to Win 7 dvd it freezes at "Starting Windows" and when I try to install XP it goes until about 9 mins left, then says it's restarting installation, and keeps doing that....I have my mobo out of case isolating it, and nothing non-essential is hooked up.

Put the old stuff back in and try.
You may need to udate the BIOS to support the new processor...

Check MIcrosoft for the answer. Search for:

windows installation error 0x00009c

You'll find this:

This behavior occurs because your computer processor detected and reported an unrecoverable hardware error to Windows XP. To do this, the processor used the Machine Check Exception (MCE) feature of Pentium processors or the Machine Check Architecture (MCA) feature of some Pentium Pro processors. The following factors may cause this error message:
System bus errors
Memory errors that may include parity or Error Correction Code (ECC) problems
Cache errors in the processor or hardware
Translation Lookaside Buffers (TLB) errors in the processor
Other CPU-vendor specific detected hardware problems
Vendor-specific detected hardware problems
