I get the Blus screen when trying to install a fresh copy of XP on my nx8220
I need to re-install a fresh copy of XP Pro on my HP nx8220, the XP CD auto runs and goes through the file loading sequence at Windows Setup but then I get the Blue Screen of Death. I believe the next step on the fresh installation process is the formatting of ‘C’ and partitioning. The screen tells me to uninstall any recently installed soft/hard wear and any video adapters. It also suggests I check for any BIOS updates; I have done all this but am still getting the same problem. Apart from the Wireless drivers, internet explorer 7 and media player 11, there is nothing left on the machine. The Blue screen also tells me to disable Cashing or shadowing I’m a bit unsure of this.

the reason why is because ,hp computers use a different set of video drivers than does win/microsoft, when upgrading to xp you must install xp 1st release no svc pacs, then must have the hp video drivers oem for the model you are installing xp to , they can be downloaded on hp driver download, or the intel driver download site, unless you have a different chip set, the oem drivers must also be puton either a floppy disk or cd , that is made bootable from restart, make shure either the A drive or the C drive is set to boot before the hard drive so it will pick up the bootable disk you made with the downloaded drivers , then reboot the computer with the xp disk , at the disk partion screen select leave old files intact with the new install !
Well it might be a factory default problem with the board, some times when systems are not fixed properly, it come up with such issue. I will advice you take it to service centre near you so as not to void the warranty.
When you say you tried to load XP Pro, did the hard drive already have XP installed or are you installing it fresh from a CD? If you are installing it fresh from the CD and it is asking you to reboot, it seems as if you are letting it try to boot again from the CD. When it reboots and says "Press any key to boot from CD..." don't press anything, just let it boot. It should finalize the installation there!
Are you trying to do a fresh install? or upgrade from another operating system? Generally have to do a fresh install when going from 32 bit version of xp to 64 bit. IF you have more than 4 GB of ram installed, you may have to remove some, then install 64 bit XP Pro, then install your ram after. (this is a known problem with some machines and 64 bit xp) IF this is none of the above?
Please add a comment with more information as per your BSOD. This way I can identify with you what it is the system does not like
I see ..either teh installation didnt complete the loading of the files..or you didnt format the Hdd proper...try to reformat it in the NTFS normal mode...and change the installation cd ..cause in the proces there might have been a file it couldn't copy ..and skip it ...keep trying cause sometimes it does that ...if the server went fine ..this means that the HDD its ok ..and the problem is the installation disk ...with xp on ...
The disk itself may be corrupt , go to microsoft and download xp home or pro , whatever your using and burn to a disk .If you don't have access to another computer , go to a repair shop and you can usually buy a burn't copy of xp for 5 to 10 dollars . RE-install as usual. please note !!! you must know what service pack is needed for the install . SP1 - SP2 ....OR to be on the safe side just get XP SP1. good luck!
go to pricegrabber.com to buy a new copy of XP. Save the stuff U want and install the new os. reload U'r saved data. If some of what U wnat to save are programs, U will have to reinstall those. The new XP os will self install from cd on boot up.
