I get STOP: 0x000000007E BSOD using an OEM XP setup CD. It happens trying to go into Recovery Console or before reaching the EULA step.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Are you doing an install? Are you doing a recovery? More info is needed. – Dan Aug 20 '09 at 19:16
