    Just recently i formatted my hdd and am currently running into problems while installing winxp home ed.. As soon as it starts to run windows setup a blue screen appears and says:

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

    The problem seems to be caused by the following file setupdd.sys


    This is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart you computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps.

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask you hardware or software manufacture for any windows up dates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advance startup options, and then select safe mode

    I have had this happen to me in quite a few Pentiom III computers. The only way I could resolve it was to go int the BIOS and disable ROM shadowing. One PIII I loaded succesfully after putting an older PCI video card into it then putting the newer AGP video card back in after getting XP up and running with SP2.
