Default Blue Screen of Death

*** STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004,0x80545FF0,0xB2000000,0x00070F0F)

This is the error code I get. I just installed a new hard drive today. This happens as soon as the new drive hits 100% when it is formatting. I don't know what else to do.

I tried to format it by going into administrative tools and doing it that way. I also used Seagates program. I am using windows XP. Everytime I try it goes to the BSoD. After It does that the only way I can get it to start up is to reset the CMOS battery thing.

after 3 threads of the same issue with different errors hinker i think its safe to say that hdd is rooted. PLEASE try not to spread out the same topic over multiple threads, i don't see any reason you couldn't have added this and the other thread into the first thread

technically its not the blue screen of death because they only occur on DOS based OS's...
