    I've got a similar problem, i get the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA error message when trying to INSTALL windows (windows xp corp legit i might add).
    I will get part way through the install when suddenly that message pops up, yet if i try my old copy of xp home it works, the only difference between them (appart from one being home the other corp) is that home has serice pack 2 while corp is pre service pack 1, i've seen this problem on a number of systems and haven't been able to work it out.
    Please can someone shead some light on this
