| Hello all,
| I'm getting quite desperate. During installation of XP the installation BSOD's with STOP error 0x00000050 just after the first reboot.
| This happens *every* time at the same place/time.
| What I've done so far is :
| * Reformatted HDD (lowlevel + WinXP installation way of format (both))
| * Tested with different versions of XP (Pro, Home(sp1))
| * Replaced RAM twice (not faulty but all suggestions so far pointed me to RAM failures)
| * Replaced HDD (bought a brand new (despite the fact the other hdd was about 3months old))
| * Replaced Motherboard (replaced a MSI 875 Neo with Asus P4C800-E Deluxe)
| All installation attempts has been made with a minimum of components (ie no sound/lancard etc).
| My rig (as it's configured during install) :
| Asus P4C800-E Deluxe
| 512Mb Kingston HyperX
| 1 WD 36/10k HDD
| Powercolor Radeon 9800pro
| I fresh out of options, any help/suggestions are highly appreciated.
