I've posted similar posts on here before about installing WIN XP Home
OEM version, and the system lags or just doesn't want to continue.
I've taken out what might be bad RAM, and the install continues until
I experience the 0XBE BSoD about trying to write to read-only memory.

I have no idea how to correct this BSoD b/c it's a completely new PC
(hand-assembled) and I've tried just abouit every config. in the BIOS
to match what it wants. The Microsoft web solutions has no clear and
concise answer, either.

Beginning with XP OEM installations could fail on systems the OEM was not
made for. If you are having trouble with the OEM you need to contact your
computer mfg.

A quote from the above page:

* A Stop 0xBE message might occur after installing a faulty device
driver, system service, or firmware. If a Stop message lists a driver by
name, disable, remove, or roll back the driver to correct the problem. If
disabling or removing drivers resolves the issues, contact the manufacturer
about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for
multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering
tools.

I'd ensure that you have the latest, WHQL certified drivers for your system.
Update the following:
1) BIOS
2) Motherboard drivers
3) Video driver (WHQL is very important for troubleshooting)

If that doesn't fix it, then I'd start updating your other drivers (LAN,
modem, sound, and any attached hardware), then would move on to any of the
multimedia applications (DVD/CD record/playback stuff).

Not in the case of a generic OEM release, nor in the case of an OEM that
is not bios-locked.

"it's a completely new PC (hand-assembled)" would indicate it is not a
manufactured PC.

But I had no way of knowing that Steve. I suggested an issue that might
have been the case. It wasn't wrong just could have been the issue might
not have been. What the heck is a generic OEM release? All OEM releases are
from OEMs which implires an OEM. Do you mean like the OEM Generic Computer
Manufacturer of the Solar System that would still be specific? I don't
understand a generic OEM release sorry.

No problem George, not saying you were wrong about anything, just adding
information which seemed appropriate to the OP's situation. A "generic"
OEM release is the type you can buy at Wal-Mart with a mouse and some
OEM makers use them as well. Your statement would apply to an OEM CD
that is manufacturer specific, i.e. a Dell OEM CD that will only work on
a Dell motherboard = bios locked.

A Generic OEM CD is one that is not provided by a specific PC manufacturer
such as Dell or Gateway, but can be bought with any piece of hardware. It's
identical to the full version except for the following:

1. Its license ties it permanently to the first computer it's installed on.
It can never legally be moved to another computer, sold, or given away.


2. It can only do a clean installation, not an upgrade.



3. Microsoft provides no support for OEM versions. You can't call them with
a problem, but instead have to get any needed support from your OEM; that
support may range anywhere between good and non-existent. Or you can get
support elsewhere, such as in these newsgroups.

This error message is produced by a device driver of some sort. One
possible solution might be to strip the PC down to the bare minimum so
as to reduce the number of drivers that are trying to be installed.

Remove all non-essential accessory cards (e.g. everything but the
video card) and unplug everything but the monitor and keyboard. If
you are using a USB keyboard and/or mouse then switch to a plain-jane
ps/2 model for the install.

If that doesn't resolve the issue then here are some additional
resources:

How to Use Driver Verifier to Troubleshoot Windows Drivers {KB 244617}
http://support.microsoft.com?kbid=244617

And here is one article dealing with a specific device that can
produce this error:
Error Message May Be Displayed When Using a Xircom Rex 6000 with a USB
Cradle {KB 299371}
http://support.microsoft.com?kbid=299371

Well who would be the OEM that was contacted if the generic OEM you are
talking about is "not provided by a specific PC manufacturer?" I don't get
it. If I bought a piece of Hardware with the generic OEM such as a
Microsoft mouse would my OEM be Microsoft and they would be obligated to
support the OEM?

No. You could try the store you bought it from, but this is
likely to be an example of the latter part of the sentence, "that
support may range anywhere between good and non-existent."

As a general rule, you can expect little to no technical support
with such OEM versions. There are some places where you may get
some support, but not many. Lack of support *is*, for many
people, one of the significant disadvantages of OEM versions,
especially generic OEM versions.
