    My config :
    XP32 SP3
    intel quadcore CPU
    4gb DDR2
    WD 3TB drive

    After installing GPT LOADER , i've been asked to reboot.
    After reboot, when XP is loading i get a Blue Screen, it stays a quarter
    of second on screen, so its not possible for me to read what is written.
    I also get blue screen if i try to start XP in "Safe Mode".
    Only way for me is to run it to a previously state (last good config).
    Maybe this is due to GPT loader drivers causing blue screen...
    If someone can help, i can send any log if needed...

    Could you please provide mini dump file for review?
    Minidumps are usually located in root directory of C:/. Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump, find file with *.dmp extension and upload it here or to any file hosting.

    Sorry for Delay Mech AN,

    found no *.dmp file (system configured for showing hidden & system files of course) . So i installed GPT drivers again to make my system crash again.
    But no minidump files are created.
    For info the BSOD appears just after XP logo , so maybe its too early , i mean minidumps are not managed at this stage...

    I can't read BSOD content coz it stays only quarter of second, but if that can help you maybe i can record the bsod with a CAM then i will have a picture of it.
    Tell me if this could help ya.

    PS: i use latest gpt loader (build

    thx alot in advance.

    Do you have Acronis installed?

    Please try to restore the last known good configuration and check the following:
    * run Regedit.exe (Start – Run - type: ‘regedit’ and press enter)
    * Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\UpperFilters
    * Check what values exist in UpperFilters.

    Mech An,

    I don't have acronis installed.

    Here are values stored in regkey u pasted in previous post :

    @="Lecteurs de disque"

    in ascii , "UpperFilters"="PartMgr" ...

    PS : i have daemon tools pro installed (1 virtual scsi dvd drive) + sptd. But i dont think sptd is involved in crash because i have the same crash when running XP in "Safe Mode" and sptd is not loaded ...

    I apologize for delay.

    What WD 3TB drive model do you have?
    Is it connected directly via SATA or thru the SATA but using HBA (specific adapted shipped with the drive) ?

    The WD drive : Western Digital Caviar Green 3 Tb 64 Mb Serial ATA II - WD30EZRSDTL.

    And yes, with the drive, WD gave a PCI-E serial ATA controler,called : Rocket 620WDALF.

    I use the controler and the 3tb drive is plugged on it. But i also tried to plug the drive directly on sata port of mobo , but it crashes same way with drive plugged directly on mobo.
