Default BSOD upon XP Installation

Hi all.
I just got a new computer from the shop today.. It looks awesome. Tis 3.4Ghz, 1gig Ram, 250gig HDD, PCI-Express Radeon X700 SE (with a pci-express motherboard, obviously), and some other stuff.

I told the computer dudes only to build the computer, not to install XP/drivers (i wanted to do this myself). Brang it hope, set it up.. on comes the first problem.

Problem one: The monitor wouldn't turn on (orange light/power-safe mode). I realised i stuck it in the onboard video card slot, not the radeon slot. So i got that going fine.

Problem two: The CD Rom was plugged in fine, yet it couldn't be detected. After many phone calls to the shop we (me/computerdude) managed to find out the problem.. somethin to do with the peripherals.

So i finally get XP starting to install. Here comes my program that i am unable to fix. I rang the shop and they said to bring it in tommorow, but i love investigating so i'ma post here just in case i can get it working before i take it to the shop.

XP starts intiating.. like loading the DLLs into the memory or something (it's the very first screen with Windows XP at the top left and a white bar at the bottom loadin dlls and stuff). At the end of this, it goes "Starting Windows XP" for about 5 seconds. XP is a liar! Because instead of it starting, it gave me a blue screen of death. The instructions were like restart the computer, then remove any newly installed hardware, etc.. None of dat worked. So now i have a brand new computer with no way of getting XP installed.

Thankyou for your time,

Okay, don't worry. The problem was that the BIOS Peripherals needed settings changed to fully tell the motherboard not to use RAID.

And how did you tell it to do that, I'm having the same problem and don't see anything on RAID in my Bios. Thanks in advance.
