Microsoft XP requires a hard drive with a minimun of 32GB using NTFS which is the best, if it is less than 32GB you have to set it up using FAT32 system, thats the old system used with windows 3.1, 95 and 98.
Before proceeding you should go to www.microsoft.com/hcl and check your hardware compatibility.
The blue screen your seeing is probably because of incorrect or out of date BIOS and or drivers or hardware failure.
You should also check to see how much memory your motherboard is capable of handling, you should have in my opinion a min of 1GB, older motherboards will not handle that much.
Check your hardware compatibiliy, then you can go from there.
Good Luck

Compaq presario cq45 112AU unable to install winxp


U need to edit the BIOS settings because SATA drivers is not included inside older Window XP CD.
Disable the SATA option under advance options in BIOS. That should work and it will also allow you to install/reinstall Win XP.

Is it a restart with a blue screen? Is it XP?
If it is XP do the following:
Boot the laptop with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
