World of Warcraft on Acer downgraded to XP

  1. On my new Acer Veriton M410, I downgraded to XP using the downgrade cd provided. When I try to play World of Warcraft, I get an IRQL NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error with parameters "stop 0x0000000a (0x00000008, 0x0000000z, ox00000000, 0x804fc6c9)". The error message mentioned no .dll or .sys. Is there a way to determine which driver isn't being recognized? Acer Support wasn't much help. They just told me to download all the drivers on their website, which I did, to no avail.

    I tried the resolution suggested on the link, but when I type "rdisk /s" it says Windows cannot find rdisk.

    My apologioes - linked the wrong KB - see here;

    The key things to consider are; "Typically, this error occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include an incompatible device driver, a general hardware problem, or incompatible software."

    With the ' IRQL NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error ' I would first suspect a Ram problem.

    Run Memtest.

    Is it saying something ndis.sys?

    No .sys or .dll is mentioned. It's amazing that I've gotten better tech support from blizzard and online forums than from acer.

    I ran Memtest and didn't get any errors.
