Last night I upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows XP. On the final reboot I
received the message:

Stop 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XFC229DB8, 0XFC0F8D0, 0XFC0F5CC)

Can anyone tell me what this means?

Usually those code numbers & letters are in a language only developers can/
could read & understand...However,you can/could at pc start,tap the F8 key,
select safe-mode,enter as administrator,open event viewer for details.And,
run disk-cleanup,delete 98 files option,click on "more options" last
button,"delete
all restore points but last one",then run defrag.Not a bad idea to go to
run,type:
cmd In cmd type:CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS (converts FAT32 file system-98 to
xp default-ntfs),once thru,if you do,run the above utilities again,then
windows
update.Also,one other choice for youre post,boot to xp cd,recovery console,
select 1 For C: Press enter for password,type:CHKDSK C: /R When thru,type:
EXIT Then follow above details...

In my experience a STOP 0x7E error is usually caused many different things.
See this link: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x7e

The parameters in the ( ) 's are significant.
The first one states that the error occurred while accessing memory.
The other 3 refer to memory locations particular to that crash. More info
is available in the Help file of the Windows Debugging Tools.

Presuming that the Windows 98 installation was not infected, then I'd
suspect that it's due to an outdated driver on the system. But, were there
any problems that caused you to upgrade to XP?

I would suggest backing up all your data to external media (disks or drives)
and perform a clean install of XP using the upgrade disk. This will require
that you have a copy of the Windows 98 installation media. Just boot from
the Windows XP CD and install it normally, erasing the old Windows 98.
During the process it'll ask for the qualifying media - that's when you'll
insert your Windows 98 CD.

Good luck!
