    Stable Dos...

    What kind of errors did you get, and when did they occur?

    Did you power the CD-ROM from an automotive PSU?

    hmm, i had somting simmular with my commell. Xp installed fine with the sata disk, but XP would't install on a ide. Turned out that the sata was ide 0 and ide was ide 1
    XP wants to install on ide 0, you need to check the bios for that, so try a different sata port.
    Hope you get it running

    No not yet. I switch the SATA ports between DVD drive and Hard drive. Still no success. The BSOD bug check code is 8E. It happens immediately after all the files are copied to hard drive (probably when windows takes control and starts running the boot drivers).

    Both your minidumps crash with 1bit memory corruption.
    Go HERE (http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic35103.html) and follow the instructions.
    It is true that some faulty ram can pass Memtest. If memtest gives your errors, your ram is bad.

    There are a couple of ways to diag it.
    You don't say which PB model it is, but if it has two sticks of RAM you can try removing one of the sticks to see if the problem persists, and then swapping with the other stick likewise.
    The other way is to download a RAM test utility and run that.
    I can onely find 8E code with ram problems, so i think thats where you should look first.
    ps win 2000pro installed without any problem on that system (its les picky about the ide number) so with win 2000 you have one thing less to look at.

    Hope its the ram, and you can fix it / get it fixed

    dualcore is faster only if the software is multi thread optimized. i think the mainly used softwares are not by this time... and as i know my C3 notebook, 2 from this CPU are slow too...

    OK. It was faulty RAM. After replacing the RAM, Vista installed just fine and was very stable. But I did not have much time to play with afterwards.
