Updated problem with startup

  1. My SATA optical drive arrived today so I decided to boot using my new mobo.

    After the Windows XP logo there's a very short BSOD, and then the system reboots. If I try to boot normally, it will do the same thing. If I try to boot via safe mode, it stops after loading a bunch of drivers, and asks if I want to skip loading sptd.sys or not. Regardless of if I skip it or not, the system reboots and same loop occurs.


    Now running (if it matters)
    P8P67 Mobo
    i5 2500K CPU
    Gskill Ripjaws 1600 DDR3 memory
    EVGA 9800 Nvidia GT GPU

    Sounds like the hard drive is bad or corrupt
