0X0000007B Blue Screen when trying to install xp home on Compaq laptop
Posted on 2009-05-15
I am trying to install a fresh copy of xp home edition on a compaq cq60-211dx,
but I keep getting the blue screen error 0X0000007B. the blue screen appears after windows loads all drivers on bottom of screen and then it say "setup is starting windows" but never gets to the next screen and then it blue screens.
The previous OS was vista but I have taken the hard drive out and formatted to NTFS using a different computer.
I have ran hardware diagnostics and they passed, I also tried installing with onloy one ram chip, to no avail.
Coul it be that I need a XP hard drive controller file that is not present in the xp disk?
Thanks for your help in resolving this issue!
