I tried to install windows xp professional on my acer system. I made my first bootable device as cd rom and the second as HDD. The system boots from the cd and shows that setup is loading the files. And immediately after that a blue screen pops up and says a message. I'm not able to move further. the message states something like this setup could not continue if this is the first time...........chect for viruses on ur chkdsk-f....and so on....
So please somebody help me out in solving out this issue.How can I install windows.Is it possible. I am waiting for ur reply.....
Thanks a lot in advance.

I went into the bios and changed the sata setting to ata - no more blue screen
You were right. Had to change SATA mode to ATA. Now no screen of death.
But I din found SATA or IDE
hello , you have to enter setup in the main menu , change to IDE save and exit then try again
i have an answer to solve this problem, u must create a sata/raid integrated windows xp cd.

To create :--

Download all (Latest & OLD sata ahci/ RAID controller driver) drivers.

This is permanent solution & Remember do not loss ur integrated xp cd.
