Hey guys, I've used these forums to find help for a variety of malware issues and have had great success in the past. I'm hoping someone can help me with a stop error I'm receiving. A little history on my machine:
Xeon processor, 2.66ghz quad core
8 Gb RAM
2 WD 250 GB HD's
3850 Series Radeon
The two WD drives are set up in a RAID 0 array. I built this system about a year ago. My initial install of Windows was a little strange, I had a Business copy of Vista that I tried to install. It worked fine on the Raid Array without having to use the MoBo raid drivers. But I wanted to use a upgrade copy of Vista Ultimate so I put in a third drive with XP, used it as the verification for my upgrade and installed the upgrade to the raid array. I then removed the third drive. The system ran fine for a year, then for regular maintenance I decided to reformat and start over.
I attempted to reformat and do a clean install using an XP Professional disc, but received a STOP error 0x0000007B (0xF78DA63C, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I have tried the following: using a different installation disc, destroyed and recreating the raid array, tested both harddrives to ensure they were functioning properly (they were both working prior to this with no issues so I doubt the issue lies there), and I tested my memory on a different machine. The only thing left to try that I'm aware of at the moment is loading Asus RAID drivers during the install, but there are two issues with that. One, I don't have a floppy drive, and two I didn't have to use them the first go around. I'm going to attempt to use NLite to create a new installation disc with the drivers built in, but does anyone have any other suggestions? Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.
