When you try to install Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), the installation seems to succeed. However, when the computer restarts to complete the installation of Windows 2000, you experience a Stop error in the Usbd.sys driver. The Stop error message is similar to the following:
You may also receive this error message when one of the following conditions is true:
STOP: 0x0000001E (0xC0000005, 0xF3EC39F5, 0x00000000, 0x01010100)
This problem occurs because the Usbd.sys driver tries to access a particular memory location that the Usbd.sys driver has already released.
