More than 1GB RAM?
SATA hard disks?
USB devices plugged in?
XP's issue with drives over 127GB?
There's more but your post didn't tell enough and I won't ask all the other 17 questions. You tell!
Also, why not ask HP? EXAMPLE!!! -> http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7587_102-0.html?forumID=69&threadID=271360&messageID=2699006#2699006
Imagine that. Only 10 drivers AFTER you install XP.
I bought an HP 64 bit vista home premium desktop computer, and after using it for about 2 months i am more and more annoyed by my vista's compatibility and wanting to install XP professional operating system instead of vista.(either get rid of vista or create a multiboot, I don't really care.) I have the XP disc and I knew how to work it since I've done it many times before on my other computer. However, this time when I boot from the CD and allow it to load the files, it just crashes half way, saying that there is a problem and the program will be stopped to prevent any damage to the computer, and I have to reboot my PC. I tried many times and it just refuses to work.
I Googled my problem and viewed many websites and the stuff just don't work for me.(most people say just install XP with your disc, which doesn't work, I also tried burning a vista ultimate disk and a MS-DOS disk to format my hard drives, but they don't even load up...)
Can anyone help me, please?
