Hi debaasish,

Try to change the Hard Drive Controller options in BIOS from AHCI to SATA and then install Windows XP. Refer to the Service Manual/User's guide of the Motherboard for more details. If this doesn't fix the problem, please reply with the exact text or stop code of the Blue Screen that appears.
