There are two things to look here:
1. The installer you use might be defective. or 2. The hard disk is the defective.
Use other installer or hard disk then try to re-install it.

I have installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit in my dell vostro 1015 ,now i want to change my windows so is it possible that i install windows xp in my dell vostro 1015


Yes it is! You're going to need a Windows XP install CD and a serial key. Once you have those, we can start. Put the Windows XP Install CD in your computer, and reboot. Press F8 when the computer comes up to get into the boot menu. If F8 doesn't work, try F2, ESC and Enter. Select the CD/DVD drive from the list, and when you see the prompt to push any key, push any key. The files will load, then you'll see a Welcome to Windows screen - press enter. The next screen will show your hard drive. You're going to have to format it here, so you will lose all your files. Backup any files you need before you do this. Highlight the biggest sized partition, and press D, then follow the prompts. Now press C over the unallocated space, and choose quick format. Then press enter. Agree to the EULA by pressing F8 Windows will now begin installing. Follow the onscreen instructions and you'll be just fine. Alex

    Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


    1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

    .
    If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
    3.
    Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

    Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
    Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
    To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
    1.
    Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
    2.
    Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
    When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
    On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
    When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
    The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

    I just installed xp pro and it keeps freezing


    To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
    Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
    Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

    I would suggest that you run only one stick of Ram at a time to determine if they are the problem.. Also these CPU's had heat problems that damaged the cpu. This also causes freezing. I would consider resetting the CPU and the heat sink, and case fans are clean and working.
