pci.sys error when installing xp using thumb drive

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was trying to boot my asus eee pc 701 4gb ssd notebook via thumb drive to complete the XP installation. I have reached the stage where I could choose GUI or TXT mode of setup. when i selected the 2nd option (ie. txt mode set up windows xp, never unplug usb until after log on), it is able to load some of the files and drivers and just after it says setup is starting windows, I get a message saying:


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you have seen this stop message screen restart your computer.

If it appears again follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space.

If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with manufacturer updates

Try changing video adapters

Check with your hardware vendor for any bios updates

Disable caching or shadowing memory

If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart your computer and press F8 to select advanced start up options then select safe mode
