The problem is that your XP cd doesn't have the correct drivers for your hard drive built-in. You need to modify the cd in order to make it work correctly.

Can't install xp in compaq laptop


you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.

Cant downgrade vista to Xp on HP Pavilion p6144f


This is a little confusing. What exactly are you trying to do?
Are you trying to wipe Vista off and install XP? If so, you must first reformat the hard drive and then install XP

Downgraded Vista to XP from Presario c700


A lot of times, when downgrading from factory installed operating systems, you run into driver issues because they arent written for any other operating system than what they offer. My best recommendation is to google the component name and desired operating system into google (like AC97 xp driver or ATI Radeon 1300m xp driver). This will take you to a lot of 3rd party sites that have drivers to work for those specific devices. Same thing happened to me with my dell xps 1530. Came with vista, but i wanted xp. Had to scour the dell site to find drivers, but eventually found them. Once you find them, burn them to a disk for later reference.

No boot up


Solution :
  • Run chkdsk /r or chkdsk /f to detect and resolve any file system structural damage.
  • After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
  • Try disabling any virus scanning programs, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that constantly monitor your computer.
  • Run any system diagnostics that are supplied by your computer manufacturer, especially a HDD check.
