Hey ALL !
I have a Thinkpad 600. I bought a new hard drive and RAM.
I went to install Windows XP Pro on the hard drive and it won't do it. I have installed this disc on desk tops before and had no problems.
While it is " Installing Windows", it blue screens and tells me that " ( 0X000000E0), "Your computer BIOS has reported that a component in your system is faulty and has prevented Windows from operating."
The system setup log says " SZS.dll Syntax errorin manifest or policy file "D:\i386\asms\10100\MSFT\Windows\GDIPLUS\GDIPLUS.MAN" on line 4
Now I'm stuck. I went to this web page
and I downloaded the dll file , gdiplus.dll
. I put it on a disc , loaded it into the cd rom but nothing happends.
I reinserted the Windows XP Pro disc buty it just runs a minute or two then blue screens.
I had a 3 GB hard drive in the computer before I put this new 30GB drive in . The 3 GB drive was fine and it had Windows 98 on it. I wanted a bigger hard drive and Windows XP.....now I just have a mess.
Any and all help is very much appreciated !!!
