Are you using a full version retail or OEM copy of WIN XP to install? Or is it a recovery copy from another PC or laptop? You will need to use a full version disc to perform the retrofit. You will also need to download the WIN XP Drivers for your laptop from the Dell Site. You CANNOT "upgrade" install WIN XP over VISTA and keep your drivers, settings, files. Performing a WIN XP install will require a total wipe of your hard drive. Therefore you will have to save off all your personal files before you do this. Microsoft doesn't provide assistance for downgrade-type installations, so you must basically wipe your hard drive and then reload the OS.
you need to insert the leopard or snow leopard dvd into your macbook while you are bootcamp to win xp.
run the bootcamp and it will install the drivers for sound, nic, wifi etc.
also download the latest bootcamp drivers from apple.com
Here is what you need to do to install XP on your laptop that came with Vista or Win 7.
If your hard drive is SATA (pretty much standard these days) you
will need to search the manufacturer's site for a floppy disk SATA
driver install package.* You will need a USB floppy drive for installing XP. * Copy the SATA drivers (should be denoted as "F6 drivers" or similar) to a blank disk. * Have the USB drive connected. It should automatically map as A:\. * Go into BIOS and find a setting for ACPI Compatible and set on. *
Now install XP normally from the CDROM, and when it says "press F6 to
install third-party drivers", press F6 and follow the options to get the
SATA drivers from the disk. * Complete setup as normal.

Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
please check out in my computer systems device manager if anything in the sound section is in red or yellow remove it. unless win xp was made for your laptop the drivers are not there. you need to go to compaq web site and download your drivers.
Umm...is your laptop crashed??? Usually ntlldr issues ****. try to delete the former installation so a new ntldr file can be installed so as to not conflict with the damaged ntldr file that is on the pc blocking the install. It sounds like your setup is ok...at the very least get another xp cd to make sure the disk is not damaged that you are loading windows from.
Sorry for that, the mic is not working in windows xp operating system it is ture i ask the HP person he say that this laptop hardware not design for win xp OS. so plz install the Vista OS to use the full feature of the laptop buz in win xp the sound driver install force fully. it is not install the full sound driver. if it is possible any link in future i mailed you link.
