Stop:0x0000007e error

When I was building this new quad core of mine using an ASUS M3N78-VM with an AMD Phenom x4 9550 a few months back I had to install the windows XP sp1 hoping to update after install but in the middle of installation it just froze on me a gave me the blue screen of death!

Here’s the error message I got;

STOP:0x0000007e (0xc0000005,0xf748e0bf,0xf78da208,0xf78d9f08)
PCI.sys -address F748E0BF base at F748700
date stamp 3b7d855c

at first glance i knew it was display driver error. It probably didn’t recognize my new onboard graphics card but no way to install the driver unless i complete the whole installation!

Searching the net i saw a couple of pages where it talks about this error. There’s this one site that helped me a lot but at the moment i forgot the site. I’ll re-post later but to make this short the suggested solutions is to install using SP2. But I don’t have the SP2. So the next possible solution is to do a slipstream XP installation disc!

An XP Slipstream installation disc is actually an xp sp1 with sp2 pre-installed on a newly burned disc. also I’ll post the link to that site where it details it. I just wanted to get rid of this piece of paper reminding me to post this to you’all. Hope this helps!
