Angry Endless boot loop after installing IIS in xp

I am attempting to install the IIS windows component so that I can run asp etc with Windows Xp Pro.

The installation seems to go ok, add component, insert xp pro disk, installed ok, but on the first reboot I get a major blue screen error. The blue screen error happens so quick that you can't read it. It then sends my pc into an endless loop of re-booting. It detects the devices, then goes pass the 'kit nightrider' windows starting up screen with the scrolling loading bar, then a blue screen hits just before the normal user's screen appears.

From then on, a safe boot or repair does not work and I had to install a new OS on the same partitian and backup all the docs, then do a complete refresh of the system. No system repair could save it. This happened twice! and the second time with only the o/s loaded and no other programs.

System specs are:

Xp Pro
2.67 G Intel Pentium 4 processor
WinFast XP 2000 TV Card
Panasonic A06 DVD Burner

Any assistance would be appreciated. I have loaded on so much stuff again to get it back to where it was I am frightened to attempt to install it again, but would like to.

Anyone had this problem? and found a solution?
