Specs: Windows XP
a friend sold me this computer without a hard drive. I already had a SATA drive that I can use. The Computer is a Dell Opti plex 755. It only has sata connections. When I go to install the dell reinstall cd xp pro service pack 1a, it installs all the drivers then goes to start the windows installer and gives me the blue screen with ...stop 0x0000007b (0xf789e63c,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000).... what can I do?

Not sure but I have a feeling that the Dell is running a SATA 1 controller and you have a newer drive which is not compatable. Try getting a SATA RAID PCI card. They are only about $30 for the good ones.

Also, you are using a Windows SP1 CD which came out before SATA. Is there any way you can get your hand on a SP2 CD?

If it came with "dell reinstall cd xp pro" and had a sata drive that is all you need.
