I’ve spent the better part of the day putting together a computer for the g/f and keep coming to a halt, which I’m pretty sure, is due to the same recurring problem.
Everything is pieced together and running, I start to install Windows (Xp, Pro, Home, Hax0red and legit copies), the HDD formats without a problem, then setup starts listing/installing files but gets to a point where it can’t install some of the files (none specific, no recurring pattern). I skip the files and obviously it doesn’t work, instead I get the blue screen and a message saying something like “IRQL input same as output” or something like that, and “Memory Management”.
When I first switched it on there was a bios message saying CMOS Settings Wrong and CMOS Memory Size Wrong, I just pressed F2 and loaded the default values or something when I didin't boot from disk there was an ntldr error, but that only happened once
