    ok I tried installing XP last night and when it got to Registering Programs, I got a BSOD. I started it over and it went pass that, but now right after then Windows XP Professional loading screen, I get a BSOD saying something is wrong with the registry. Is there anyway to like totally delete the registry and start it new?

    If it was a clean install, just start the setup from scratch again.

    If it happens a second time, then I would check the compatability wizard and see if it can find anything that could be incompatable.

    try booting to your xp cd and goto the recovery console. Try running "chkdsk /r" and this should fix the registry if possible. Also try to boot to safe mode and do a restore back to before you added the last software/hardware. You could also try booting to last known good configuration (This rarely works, but that doesn't mean it won't)
