Unattended installation stop error

by rfwdwork / June 24, 2012 1:43 PM PDT

Hi, I am new to unattended installations I made an unattended install disk using NLite. What I am trying to do is have a dual boot computer with Windows 7 and XP. XP will be installed on my second hdd, It boots up just fine, goes through the installation of the different drivers, after that is completed it goes into a setup screen and loading Windows, after about 15 to 20 seconds I get this error message.
Aproblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identifiedin this stop message, diable the driverof check with the manufacture for driver update, try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendorfor any Bio's updates, disable Bio's memory optionssuch as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe modeto remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced Startup Options, and then select safe mode.
Technical information
STOP:0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF78D218C, 0xF78D2098, 0xF78D1D94)
This is the first time I have ever seen this stop message, I restarted my computer and it came up again. I tried to find the answer by googling the error but got no hits pertaining to installation, all had to do with Windows XP that was already installed. I am at a loss here, any help would be appreciated. I don't know how to disable Bio's memory options such as caching or shadowing. I have an old EMahines computer, I have Windows 7 Pro 32 bit installed and I have no problems with it. I don't know where to start or anything. I also have a DxDiag.txt file, with all mycomputer information, but not sure how to include it in this post. I am also new to this forum. I asked the sme question about 48 hours ago and never got any responce or nothing, I thought I would come here and try. Please help as I amat a road block. I put in my regular XP install disk and never got the message at all, it went as far as the screen where I had it format the drive it was going to install on, before I stopped it. I had one idea that maybe this happened because I made the unattended disk in Windows 7, I don't understand hgow that could have anything to do with it, but I don't know. The other possible idea was that maybe SP3 that I slipstreamed into it could have something to do with it, but don't know about that either. Please I would appreciate any help. I am at my wits end.

That's very common with XP and modern hardware.

Let's start with a basic question. How did you get XP to support a SATA drive? And how about a drive over 127 GB (XP fails gloriously on both problems.)

What I miss in your story is the reason to do this install unattended.

I'd disconnect the Windows 7 drive and install XP myself (attented) on the other drive. Then connect the Windows 7 drive again and it should boot into Windows 7 by default.
Use the select-boot-drive options from the BIOS to boot from that XP drive if you want.
