Default SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED Win XP - 03-25-2009, 01:27 AM


I'm trying to install XP from a USB key. I plug the key in, turn the mini 9 on and it goes to the blue installation screen (not BSOD) and then I get a BSOD with the message SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED.

I tried formatting the SSD via USB cable (it's a runcore 32gb), that didn't help. Neither did chkdsk /f on my usb key.

Any ideas what else I could try please?
