Here's the scenario:
I installed XP Pro (SP1) on an ABIT KT7A-RAID system that
had been running Win2k just fine for ~8 months.
After installation, and initial reboot, I got this error:
"One of the files containing the system's registry data
had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy.
The recovery was successful."
Fine. Registry error, but it appears to recover just fine
until the NEXT time I reboot, where I get:
"LSASS.EXE System Error -An invalid parameter was passed
to a service or function"
...and the system constantly reboots!
I have tried reinstalling, performing a repair on the
install, even swapping every component out, except for
the MB and then installing...after 6 tries it's exactly
The closest MS Knowledge article is #329450 "Cannot Start
Windows XP After Installing Service Pack 1 and Then
Performing a System Recovery Operation"
But that seems to pertain only to a 'Hewlett-Packard
Pavilion or a Compaq Presario 6300' rig, which this is
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
