This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.

You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page.
Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers.

BLUE SCREEN W/ MESSAGE STOP: C000007B BAD IMAGE.


Try to look for your windows xp cd.
Turn the computer off. Restart it and start tapping f12 right after.
Insert the cd. Choose the option that says CD/CDRW/DVDRW from the screen and press enter. Watch out for a prompt that will say 'Press any key to boot from cd'. press any key as soon as you get this. If you miss it, you'll get the error again. You should get the blue windows setup screen if you caught it at the right time.
Wait until you get the 'welcome to setup' screen.
Press R.
Follow any other instructions that you may get until it gives you the C:\> prompt.
Type in bootcfg /rebuild.

Below is a listing of the common steps you are likely going to encounter.

* Prompt for the identified versions of Windows installed. When you receive this prompt press Y if the bootcfg command properly identified each of the Windows operating systems installed on the computer. It is important to realize this command will only detect Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT installations.

* Prompt to enter the load identifier. This is the name of the operating system for the boot.ini. For example, Microsoft Windows XP Home users would enter "Microsoft Windows XP Home edition". If you have Windowx XP pro edition, enter 'Microsoft Windows XP Professional'

* Prompt to Enter OS load options. When this prompt is received type /fastdetect to automatically detect the available options.
Then type 'exit'. and let the computer reboot. If you get two options for microsoft windows. Choose the one that says what you entered when you were in the recovery console.

If you are able to boot correctly after those steps, go to start>click run. Then type msconfig. Click ok. Click the boot.ini tab. Click 'check all boot paths'. Click ok or yes. click close and restart if prompted. You shouldn't get the prompt for two microsoft windows anymore.

Installation of Windows XP Pro on Hp Pavilion laptop


what is the error message that you're getting.. usually windows vista will not downgrade your operating system to windows xp. You may need to remove vista before you can load xp.
make sure to save a back up of all of your important files before you do that.
