XPS 600 blue screen 7B error code

Hi, I had a XPS 600 Windows XP media center with performance raid setup. Now I want to switch to XP Pro SP2. After I finish my installation of the new windows XP Pro, right before I get to the Windows logo, I get a blue screen with 7B error code. Any suggestions?

Re: XPS 600 blue screen 7B error code

drunkducki,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

The error means that you left out a critical device when installing windows. You are going to have to go to another system and download the nVidia MediaShield.

Rrun the downloaded file on ANOTHER system. It extracts to C:\Dell\Drivers\R105373. Copy the files to a floppy disk. Take the floppy disk to the XPS 600. You can also copy them to a USB key as well. Click below to download the file

nVidia MediaShield Driver

but if you can't boot the system, how would one get that nVidia file on to the PC?

and FYI - Win 7 runs perfectly, except there are no Sound Blaster drivers that work.

You must "slipstream" the storage driver into the installation.  You can do this by loading the driver from floppy (the only way XP knows to check for a driver) at the F6 prompt during Windows Setup.  The easiest way, however, is to use nLiteOS.com to integrate the driver into your installation media (this will create a new CD with which to install).

Expanding on what THEFLASH1932 said, I had to do it for a system the other day. 

Follow my wiki here Make a XP Service Pack 3 Reinstallation Disc it will give you a quick tutorial how to use nlite for the case of slipstreaming the SATA drivers, I recommend also bringing your disc to Service Pack 3.
