Try this

Go to BIOS(by pressing F2 or DEL on startup)

See for SATA controller option-change it from AHCI to IDE

Try installing again

Tnx, worked for me.

@Rumill, this is a solution for reinstalling xp over vista, if you have p3 I think you shouldnt intall vista on them, but still, all boards of that time didnt had sata, so you dont need to change a thing.

Is that HP notebook?

If you can enter BIOS

See if you have options like this

disable SATA MODE and try installing

No it is a Medion laptop, and all I have is the basic bios, Main, Security, Boot and Exit.
Does not give me the option to change anything other than the time, date, post beep, wireless and the boot up options.

I just saw you error code

stop: 0x0000007f

Try to remove your RAM ,clean it with a softcloth and reinsert it properly

Try installing it

Also are you trying to rollback from vista to xp?

You may need to add sata drivers additionally to install xp using nlite software

What is your medion laptop model number?
momsworld- Oct 30, 2011 at 12:24 PM
The model. no is MIM2230, its a friends laptop they asked me to try and fix it after they had tried to up grade it to vista then back again to xp, everything just went haywire and couldnt access anything, I have used the xp cd to do a format and repartition and tried to install again. I have farmatted 3 times but still no luck.

Thanks your a great help, I have cleaned the ram just in case but still the same so I know its not that.

Try this


Install it

Insert your Windows XP installation disc into your CD/DVD drive and open nLite.
Then Click Next.
#Click Browse to locate your CD/DVD drive that has your Windows XP installation Disc.
Locate your CD/DVD drive and Click OK.
It should automatically detect the i386 folder.

Click next and ignore presets.Click next which takes you to task selection screen
Click on DRIVERS and BOOTABLE ISO option

Click next and insert this additional driver

you need to download this driver

After inserting this ,click next ,remove your xp cd and insert a blank cd,click next which would start the process of making a bootable cd.

Try to use this CD to install XP

Sorry its taken me so long to get back to you but I have been trying todo what you have explained above with no success, It will not let me insert this driver into the nlite, so I am stuck again.
