I'm trying to reinstall windows XP, when I boot to a windows XP disk I get the normal blue screen which runs through installing drivers, then after these drivers are installed, I see at the botton some text that say something like "Windows is starting.." then I get a blue screen of death which says something close to:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Check for viruses, remove newly installed HDs or HD controllers, check your HD to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Run CHKDSK /F to check for HD corruption, then restart.
STOP 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC000034, 0x0000000, 0x0000000)
I've run CHKDSK and tried again, but that did not help. There probably is a virus on the machine, it's not mine though so I have no idea.. and who knows if it's actually a virus causing this issue..
Anyone have any recommendations?
UPDATE: This page seems to indicate that it's a virus in the boot sector, I'm trying to find out a good way to get rid of it now.. help would be greatly appreciated.
