Is it an official Microsoft Windows disc, or one that came from your brand of computer? I know that when I used to own a Dell, they had their own Dell Windows XP disc that absolutely would not be able to run on any other type of hardware.

That's odd. I have never encountered an issue with using the same dell cd on multiple computers, dell or otherwise. Licensing is a different story.

What really needs to happen is the OP needs to do some homework first and if that fails, then he or she needs to be more descriptive with the problem. We don't even know when the BSOD occurs.

Googled your error code and...



He's right. the error code is of a sata type failure, google how to set your Sata drives to IDE/ATA on your board in the bios, or install the AHCI driver during install. Should be on your MOBO cd.

Was just about to post this. The answer to your problems is in your BIOS.

Why are all of these mac fan-people clownin'? Obnoxious.

What's the reasoning for wanting XP over 7? Especially given the RAM issues.

I don't get it either. That said, 4 gigs of RAM is plenty for XP unless OP is into video editing or MSFS.

yeah but he has 16 so it wouldnt make sense to limit himself to only using 4 when he's already got 4 times that

Yeah I know but he could always return it because that is overkill.

He'd be much better off upgrading to 7

Yeah but that is increasing his cost, not decreasing it. I am surprised he didn't obtain a copy for this pc.

Telling a person who custom built their PC and is having a hard time getting the OS to install to guy buy a Mac is like telling someone having problems starting their $5,000 Honda Civic to go buy a $25,000 Lexus.

I like how you chose Lexus and not BMW or Porsche or an expensive car worth buying, that's really a great analogy.
