Dell Optiplex 740 XP STOP 7F BsoD
Got a bunch of Optiplex 740 with the 5400B Procs (23).
Every single one I've unwrapped so far BSODs on startup with a 7F stop.
I'm running the ubuntu ram check on one - no issue yet, 2 passes (still running overnight).
After blue screening on startup (from the windows loading screen), they reboot and start over, after several repeats of this (a different number of times) they eventually startup fine, reach the login page and all seems to work fine from there.
All devices appear ok - this is straight on reboot from unbox, tick the windows OEM first run buttons to desktop. Other than booting seems to run no problems, so I'm wondering if it's driver related in the image dell have used..
I don't really want to have to rebuild all these stations (it's an XP Pro downgrade from Vista Business btw). I've unboxed and tried 15 so far and expect the rest to be exactly the same.
My next move after speaking to retail is to try a fresh install of XP, and see how that goes and if no dice, then try a vista one.
