If you are just going to format and reinstall then reset your boot order to boot cd first device from within the BIOS. Then boot from the installation CD and it should reformat and reinstall the operating system.(unless you are trying to use a restore disc)

If you are still having issues then try removing all un-neccessary hardware from your computer and re-try!

Still having issues after that use UBCD and format pro from the CD and wipe the drive then format it and re-try to install the operating system....
A registry error should not cause the computer to not reformat from booting to the XP CD

More likely a bad memory stick.

If you think there is some good in everybody, you obviously haven't met 'everybody'.

Hey thanks for the replies guys! This is really weird because i changed the boot to cd first to get it to boot from the win xp cd, i can get into the menu where it asks me if i want to install windows or repair i can click either of them. When i go to repair the 1st step after i press "r" i get the BSOD.. and the same thing as if i wanted to reformat the drive first step into it BSOD appears... i cant go ne where pretty much.
