Fresh install off a brand new home premium 64 bit OEM DVD. Computer was running perfect on XP beforehand, and everything
passed the windows 7 compatibility program. I'm attempting to install on a new Intel SSD, but I can't even get to the screen
where you chose partition,drive,etc.
About 20 seconds into the installation it comes up with an error 0xc0000098
ql2300.sys or q12300.sys (can't tell if its an L or 1), critical system driver is missing or corrupt. Tried running with 1
stick of ram, AHCI mode and IDE mode, unplugged every SATA device except the boot HD and boot DVD. Also tried turning off
digital driver signing, as well as safe mode and did the built in memory test. DVD doesnt have a scratch or fleck of dust on
it. I tried searching for similar problems on these forums as well as general google searches, but none of the ideas have
worked thus far. Don't have another 64 bit computer to test the DVD in.
Any ideas would be of great help, thanks!
