I am trying to install XP on a brand new Dell PC that has Windows 7 home prem on it. I am using a Dell XP home disc with SP3 to format and install XP on the machine. It gets to the last blue screen where is says windows setup is starting and then it just goes to a BSOD. the error code is 0x0000007b
I had a dell laptop the other day that did the same thing after installing a brand new harddrive. I tired an XP pro disc and XP finally installed so I tried the XP Pro disc on this computer and still the same BSOD.
It is a brand new PC and ran the Dell diag and everything checks out. Is there a trick to install XP on newer systems or Dell systems?
