Default Error when installing my Operating System

Ok i just finished building my new computer. This is the first computer I have Built. I started to install my operating system and about 10 minutes in I keep recieving this message

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

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error scrren, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer

Technical Information:
***Stop: 0x0000002B (0xF78D2524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


I have already checked the connections many times, and made sure that the hard drive is set to Master. I dont know how to run CHKDSK /F. Also when I went into the BIOS I saw that the Hard Drive has been detected. It listed all the info about it. Please help me out. Thank you

List all the components.

Give Links to the RAM and power supply.


If its brand new, then just reformat.

Boot off your XP CD and run the recovery console. Once open (this looks like a DOS prompt) type chkdsk c: /f
