I am doing a new intall on a new computer.  The SATA drive is not yet
formatted, but the BIOS is seeing it.

When I boot using the 2003 DVD, I get the "Windows Setup" screen and it
loads files.  Then it says "Starting Windows" at the bottom of the screen.

At this point, I get a "death screen" that says there's a problem with the
HD.  It suggests running chkdsk /F, which is of course not an option.

The error is:
STOP:  0x0000007B (0XF789E63C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

Help!!!
