|you do realize i got this during the installation of windows xp, yes? how can i possibly retrieve a dump file if windows xp didnt even install?|
heres how it went: booted from cd, accepted license terms, formatted hdd with ntfs, copied files, restarted computer, booted into windows xp, detecting hardware,
*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, ...) "A system process or thread critical to system operation has unexpectedly exited." the only time i see this type of blue screen is when i force crash windows vista, or 7, but this time, its coming up by itself. something is causing windows xp setup to crash.
i can try recovery console, and try to see if i can get a dump file, but i dont know how it would work without windows xp installed. ill get the full error code popping up, by trying to install xp again, and ill post back the full code.
