technicial information :
***STOP:0x00000007B (0xF7A8c524 ,0xcooooo34,0x0000000,0x000000000)"
this the error messege plz need help installation win xp I am having the very same problem with my Pavilion Dv7-1135nr. I've tried the method mentioned above. Problem is that you never get to the screen where you can choose what drive or partition you want to install xp on. The blue screen with "a problem has been detected ___-_" then windows shuts down. Why would Microsoft make it so difficult to use both operating systems. I actually purchased a new 500 gig hard drive in hopes that with 2 drives, I would not have problems, but I still can't install XP. I am not very fond of the Vista OS, I have too many old (expensive) programs that I can't run, I need my XP Pro back. Please help.

    I have tried to reformat my c: without any sucess. I have a dos boot disk, but that hasn't worked out for me. I installed a second hard drive, a 500 gig thinking I would be able to format it and install xp.. This is a seperate hard drive - my c: is 250 gigs. It is the drive with the Vista on it - I hate it! I want my XP Pro back. I've read everything on the internet trying to resolvet this and nothing has worked.

    Thanks for all your help.

Hi Sue,

Your problem isn't Microsoft it's the manufacturers, they will specifically code drivers and the hardware configs especially for Vista because that's what they ship with. Unfortunately there isn't alot you can do apart from trying a XP Pro disc with service pack 3 on it. Give that a go and if that doesn't work it maybe worth speaking to Microsoft directly for further assistance.

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
