Windows - ***stop: 0X0000007B (0XF78D2524,0XC0000034...)

October 2016


I was running Vista home premium on my laptop and I wanted to install Windows XP. During installation a message appears (Blue screen) saying that Windows is stopping intallationto prevent damage to the machine. In short it does not allow the installation.


  • You have to go into the BIOS and then change your options
  • Instead of "SATA" and put in "ATA" or "Compatibility"
