STOP: 0x0000007E when booting from XP CD

I installed a new motherboard on my kids computer and am trying to do a clean
install of XP. When I boot from the XP installation CD I get the following
error:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (OxCOOOOOO5,OxF853E0BF,0xF898A208,0xf8989F08)

*** PCI.SYS Address F853E0BF Base ATF8537000, Date Stamp 3b7d855c

Any suggestions? The motherboard I purchased was refurbished, could it be
the problem?

Thanks

"STOP 0x0000007E" error message after you upgrade to Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330182

If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is
finished, the computer may not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows.
• If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup
is complete, the computer BIOS may be incompatible with Windows.
• Incompatible video adapter drivers.
• Damaged RAM.
• A damaged device driver or system service.

If you are not loading any third-party drivers during installation and it is a clean
install (no files on the hard drive whatsoever), then the driver options mentioned
above are not the issue....leaving possible hardware incompatibility such as the
BIOS and RAM, or a problem with the motherboard, as possible causes.

However, see the thread linked below, on the Dell forums, with the same exact error
you are getting:

Install of XP Pro fails with Stop 0x0000007E on Dimension 9100

Particularly see the resolution on the second page, involving making a slipstreamed
CD with SP2 added:

Are you using an XP SP2 disc to install, or an older XP Gold or SP1 disc?
Is this a clean install on a formatted hard drive with nothing at all on it?

Thanks Glee

Actually did the slipstream for SP2 after I posted and it worked. I am in
good shape now. Thanks
