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!
Did you use the Advent's built-in reformat and rebuild to get it back to XP Pro?
If you have a separate XP Pro CD or DVD, as opposed to that in a 'hidden' partition on the HD, your best best, so long as you have the installation key, is to start fresh with formatting the HD and, if it is large enough, splitting the HD into two partitions.
Then use one of them for the actual XP Pro partition. Build that first partition into XP Pro, and when it is working properly, only then do you format the second partition, and make it into the kind of space you need it to be.
You should have the ability to make it work now. So long as you have a legitimate installation key for XP Pro, you should be able to make this work properly.
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 laptop won’t POST after removing the memory? Sounds like the memory module (s) need to be reseated again. Removing memory will not reset the laptop. If you want to install a clean Windows XP load, you need to boot from the Windows CD and format the hard drive. Fell free to contact me if you need futher assistance.

I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this:
Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
Best of luck!
