Could someone help me discern the codes given on the BSOD:
Stop: 0X0000007E
(0XC0000005, 0X804F129C, 0XB9CF5738, 0XB9CF5434)

The BSOD appeared when I was doing a repair reinstall.

I have previously done a hard drive and ram diagnostics: both passed

What was the reason for doing a repair install ?

Assume its XP ?

Was there any other part to the message, Eg: after the brackets

--SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED or IRQ_NOT_EQUAL_TO etc ?

Most BSOD are driver or hardware failure related.

7E is pretty much a driver or system service failing to load, possibly due to hardware issues. What prompted the need for a repair install? Perhaps some underlying issues.

You would have had a later SP on it originally than the disk you are using for the repair install and it's replaced something with an older version.

Use an updated XP disk.

tried Win XP Pro SP2 OEM and it stalls at 34%
no hard drive activity
the status lights blink across & the info screen changes
but no further along with installation after 10 minutes of waiting at 34%

Sometimes if a drive/OS has had bad infections, or is to badly damaged, its safer to wipe the drive and start again from a fresh install.

Hopefully you will have made a backup / cloned the persons drive/data, unless they have their own backups.

Just to check, have you got another drive you can do a fresh install on to make sure it is simply a badly damaged OS and not a connection problem.

Just a thought - try changing to another optical drive - I had a strange one a few weeks back late last year, it was something going on with the Optical drive and it would stop the install part way through.
