Angry problem with dual boot (Win XP and Mandrake 8.2)

I encountered the problem when I tried to do dual boot Win XP and Mandrake 8.2

1.) Format the whole hard drive C: (80 GB).
2.) Install Win XP on the hard drive C:.
3.) Install Mandrake 8.2 (recommend mode)
4.) Reboot computer. Show boot window
5.) If I choose linux, the linux will boot fine. However, if I choose NT (which is Win XP), the blue screen shows up the following error message.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage your computer


If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware and software manufacturer for any windows updates you might needs.

If problems continue, disable or remove any nearly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, Press F8 to select Advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Technical information
***STOP: 0x000000ED (0x81F87948, 0x000014F, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


I tried almost every way above except disabling BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing because I could not find them in my BIOS, but I still could not get it worked.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

i dont have Mandrake, i have slack, but i dual boot with windows XP and have got that error even before i was dual booting! the only way i know how to beat that error is to boot XP in safe mode (press F8 repeatedely) at boot, then use system restore to set your OS back a couple days, if its a fresh install with no system restore points then you have to start all over with the windows XP partition

write back if i did not explain good enough!!!
