Default XP Install Trouble

I just put together a new computer last night, but I coulnd't get XP to install. Everything seems ok when the computer boots up, and the OS begins so intall itself right away. However, in the middle of the installation, a blue Stop error screen pops up with the following message:

*** Stop:0X0000007E (0X0000005, 0XF748EOBF, 0XF78DA208, OXF78D9508)

*** pci.sys - Address F748EOBF base at F748700, Datestamp 3b7d855c

I have an MSI P35 Neo2-Fr mobo, Intel Q6600 Quad CPU, EVGA 9800 GTX GPU, 4GBs of G-Skill DDR2 PC6400 ram, and a 320GB Samsung HD. All these components are brand new.

Does anyone know what this error message means or how to fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks alot.

Default Re: XP Install Trouble

7E is usually a RAM issue. I am guessing you are using 32 Bit Windows XP.

Difference Between 32 Bit (x86) and 64 Bit (x64)

Does the disc you are using have SP2?
