Hello,
I am currently trying to install Windows XP on an HP laptop that used to have Windows Vista Ultimate on it, and still does, with windows activation problems, so i can only access items in safe mode (hence a fresh XP install) While trying to load files for the XP installation, it loads a bunch, then i get a Blue Screen Of Death. Ive read up that changing the SATA driver to IDE (compatibility mode) in the BIOS solves the issue. However, I do not have the option to change those settings in BIOS, and am at a complete stand still. Any help would be great
