Default Windows installation problem!

Note: To install Windows, I have to use 'special' SCSI drivers from my motherboard manufacturer since the version of Windows that I have... Doesn't have them!!

When I was installing Windows, it asked me for the SCSI drivers. OK, I put them in, Windows continues the installation and then, almost at the end (partitioning and formating is over) it comes up with "Can not copy ---HERE'S THE SCSI DRIVER NAME---" and does that 3x for every file (SCSI driver) that needs to be copied.

I ignore this and continue with the installation. Finalizing. Windows restarts. Now I get a blue screen before booting to Windows

"A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to
your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your
computer. If this screen appears
again follow these steps:

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

Technical Info:
*** Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF7C45640, 0x00000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

I searched for the above and came with quite few results. It happens when, EXACTLY, the SCSI drivers can not be found or they are corrupted or when the boot device is innaccesible (NO DRIVER!!!).

Is there a way to install the drivers manually? Where do I paste them, if so?

Try installing Linux first (you can download them for free)
Then install Windows afterwards - If your Linux formats everything without a problem.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was doing except that when the installation was almost finished, it gave me an error that it can't copy the drivers (although it could run them since it accessed the drive) from the floppy.

I did google it. I came up with two or three 'good' results that told me something about unattanded cds and being unable to copy drivers when installing from them. The only problem is, I have an original Windows XP Home so I don't think this should give me any errors

Anyways, I'm done, after searching and posting the same topic(s) all over multiple forums and getting very little help (I know, it's no ones fault). After solving couple of problems...

*PC sent to the service*

try installing xp minus the extra scsi drivers. Sometimes works...

OK. I finally sent my PC to service. Got it fixed in one day. The problem was... BAD Windows installation disc!!! **** Cyberpower. They suck so bad... Could have fixed it myself in no time with a good Win XP disc.
