    Ok. And what about the hard disk? Or, the other things mentioned on
    the page? Is the problem you are having similar to what is described
    or different?

    What makes you think you are loading the correct device driver at F6?
    Reference your statement: "It doesn't matter if i hit f 6 or not". If
    you need a device driver, and you don't give it one, then obviously
    windows installation isn't going to find your disks and install the
    operating system.

    Have you tried the windows xp newsgroup?

    Did you try testing the memory as Tom suggested?

    What is the result of the check disk test you originally mentioned
    that windows installation recommended?

    In another thread, Jef found this for troubleshooting a 7b stop error:;en-us;324103

    Let me put you out of your misery:

    Go into your BIOS.
    Look for something like:

    ->Serial ATA (SATA)
    It'll likely be set to "AHCI".
    Change it to "Compatability".

    Once you save the settings and reboot, Windows'll use a totally different set of drivers, and not give you any more issues.

    I appologise, because I don't know where the setting is exactly in YOUR bios, but this is where it would be if you had a Lenovo/IBM.
