My System Specs

Default This is a head scratcher.

XP Pro, 32bit

I'm getting a BSOD loop on boot. The BSOD is a generic error and just gives a couple of memory adresses and says a driver might be bad or the drive full. The Bootlog doesn't log a single thing. I could boot into Safe Mode but then I tried a repair install, which of course gets the same BSOD and I'm now shut out of safe mode. I've done a ram test, I've disconnected everything non-essential and tried 3 different video cards, but it just won't boot. I did a scandisk when I could get into safe mode and the primary drive was fine. The owner has already decided to do a fresh install of Win7 but I'd like to get this up and running while the new OS comes in from NCIX.

System:
Q6600
Asus P5KC
2x1GB DDR2
250G WD Sata
160GB WD SATA
Sammy SATA DVD±RW
Asus 5850 (also tried HD3870, HD4350)
550W Enermax PSU, rails seemed OK
