    Hi Cinerarium, i have read yo problem and i think its not an easy thing to figure out, but maybe to avoid reinstalling, first tell me did u do an upgrade of you directx, drivers etc?
    Bcoz those are some of the files that would cause that if u have just upgraded.If no try installing dx9c and upgrade all you drivers to support winxp.
    U see if u run drivers of a lower os, u create un stability, bcoz the host and yet new os see it as a bad signature. So do that and updates of yo progress.
    Wish u luck
