SOURCE: show blue screen and show

I assume your trying to install windows xp on a somewhat newer computer. This will not work without some tweaking. The reason you are getting this error is due to the fact your computer most likely has a SATA drive as opposed to an IDE. Windows XP does not natively support SATA drives.
First thing you can try is go into your BIOS and change your hard drive to emulate IDE support (To get to BIOS, while the computer is booting you will need to press the key is asks for to enter setup/BIOS usually F1 F2 F10 or del)
Here's a video I found on youtube that explains it, you want yours set to IDE. After this is set, XP should install just fine.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVXXopxa7hg
The other option is to build a slipstream XP disc and integrate sata drivers into it so that you can install XP on a computer with sata. This is much more advanced and I would try to emulate IDE mode first.
Leave comments if you need additional assistance.

it is not possilble. Try with other XP CD. It will definitely get installed on your PC.
WINDOWS XP REQUIRES MINIMUM OF 128MB OF RAM.

Please do so, your problem will get solved.

I want to install windows xp-2 in my laptop presario cq42 notebook, i have a proble with hard drive for sata disable. in this laptop the bios not show the sata disable feature. so i want to disable this...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I want to install xp2 in compaq presario cq40, but a blue screen is show


Hello Download the SATA driver for your particular chipset. Then download nlite (just google it). Install it and follow the directions to slipstream the driver into your installation disc. You can also add SP3 and all the drivers you need to it.
or go to bios and restore it to default setting if you have a sata hard disk then disable it in bios setting or RAID Auto/Ahci to RAID Auto/ATA then reboot from installation disk or You can get help from this site http://www.laptops-drivers.com/compaq/how-to-install-windows-xp-on-hp-compaq-cq40-115au.html

How can i install windows xp when screen showing blue screen


Check whether you have installed the SATA Hard Drive driver using a Floppy disk. Some Computers needs SATA Hard Drive Driver before installing the Windows XP. Try using Windows XP SP2 disk.

How to install windows xp sp2 on compaq v3239tu


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .
