  3. Install the esential driver only, chipset, graphic, modem, sound and wireless, others for me is optional.The problems cause by one of the driver you used, you can test which driver caused the failure by installing the driver one by one and after each installation plug in your flash drive you will know which driver is not comaptible.

  10. hello again Mr. Black, I think i've successfully done the slipstreaming of my XP installer with a sata drive but when on the installation it shows a BSOD screen saying that I need to run chkdsk and something. please help

  11. i need to know the full error, normally it will say chkdsk x0000XX something, my opinion and suggestion is maybe during the installation not all windows files succesfully copied so you need to reinstall or repair your windows again(i know thats hard thing to do =p), or your hdd got a problems but i think that not really the problems, now i suggest report back the error bsod you got, inform back the progress.
