    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: partmgr.sys

    DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELING_PENDING_OPERATIONS


    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 to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installtion, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any other windows updates you might need.
    If this problem 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.

    Etc etc..
    Installing fresh windows onto laptop, gets to 73% when formating the hard drive then I get this blue screen, tried about 4-5 times. Using a Windows XP cd.
    Its a Toshiba Satellite 1905-2301 laptop.
    Worked ok before I tried this, just was running slow and laggy from spyware and virus's.

    Check that the disk is clean and doesn't have any deep scratches on it.

    Can you get to safemode with command prompt and type chkdsk /r

    To insure that your partitions and tables are not damaged, remove all the partitions, make new ones, and then format the partitions.

    What brand and model drive is it? There are testing applications available for drives on most manufacturer's web sites.

    No idea what I did, if I had to do it again I'd be effed. But I deleted everything, had to make main partion with like 8mb then other with the rest which was about...38gigs..? Then did a Fat then quick ntfs format and got it to install windows.
    Hopefully it doesnt smoke and fry while I sleep =O
    But now having trouble finding drivers for it, have no cd for the mobo or nothing, but I made that topic on the hardware forums if any one is interested in checking it out.
    And thanks AGAIN for helping me everyone.
