Very fast BSOD then restart on boot

  1. I have just updated my computer to Windows XP Pro.
    The machine CAN handle this operating system, could prob even handle Win 7.

    On start up it goes onto the Windows loading screen then very quickly (not enough time to read it) flashes a BSOD and restarts.

    I can't get into the BIOS, cant get onto desktop, tryed removing, replacing RAM.
    Tryed last known good config.

    I have also tested the hard drive in another machine and it does work.... Very confussed, any ideas?

    Hello, thank you for your reply.

    It was on XP home, it's now been upgraded to XP Pro.

    I deleted all partitions, and formatted the drive. I then installed the OS using the XP Pro CD.

    The computer is a shuttle XPC, model number is: SB95P.
