Hello,

i have the same blue Screen error problem on my Laptop for the last 20 days(i can install 98 but not XP)........
i have gone through your solution of changing from BIOS sata(AHCI to IDE),

but the problem is that I didnt get the option of changing this setting in the BIOS of my Laptop(Lenovo 3000),

HOW can I change this Setting then?

Is there any other solutions to this????

KIndly Help plzzzzzzzzzz......

have you tried to upgrade from win98, rather than clean install, it is possible that you xp disc is damaged, dont have enough info to give better answer

i had XP but somehow it became corrupted,then the blue screen started cumng with the blabla messages.......
when I decided to format the PC then also the error message was cumng.......
