HP Pavilion G series

Hi,

 

I have purchased 2 HP Pavilion G series from local vendor for using my work as RF engineer, then all the equipment need to have recommended OS which is Xp, i have tried more than 4 times to format my computer to xp but it fails and prompts me a death blue screen, i have tried to change some bios settings and that wont work.

 

 

so please can you tell how to format/ install windows XP to my HP pavilion g series, or is this laptop model is compatible with XP.

Had you consider using a virtualized XP machine in a Windows 7 operating system?

 

Have you looked at the General Windows XP downgrade guide in the notebook section? 

 

Your notebook, if new, has a SATA hard disk.

Windows XP does not natively support SATA, so in order to install Windows XP, the proper SATA driver must be installed  via F6  during a normal Windows XP installation or by being slipstreamed inside a Windows XP installation image.

 

That likely to be why you are seeing blue screens.
