I have Hp Compaq Presario CQ61-115ee and i m trying to install xp but the blue screen error is coming.
I know there is a problem with harddisk driver which is causing this
Is there a way to install xp on my Laptop
If yes then i will also need all Hp Compaq Presario CQ61-115ee drivers for xp
I have read few threads but the sata drivers link is expired in all the threads so also can someone provide me an updated link and also all the xp drivers for my laptop

Below is the link to the SATA AHCI drivers you need for your notebook. XP 32 bit is the second download.
I would slipstream all of the drivers to the copy of the XP installation disk.
If you are using a USB floppy to load the ACHI driver when you hit the F6 key at the beginning of the XP installation dialog then you need to select the Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller when XP stops at the 'S' prompt for you to load the driver.
Use your Up/Down arrow keys to scroll to find the driver. It may not appear on the screen initially.

Try this guide, and I would slipstream all of the drivers, not just the one for your notebook.
I followed the instructions at the link above, and the XP install disk worked fine for me.
If you have a USB floppy drive and disk, I can help you install the correct driver when you install using the F6 prompt at the beginning of the XP installation dialog.

Thank you Paul once again for ur reply
I saw the guide u provided me i m doin the same thing but instead of jus selecting ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller in text mode i select all (ctrl + a) and started the process but still the blue screen is coming right after it say setup is starting windows after loadin all the drivers.
Is it because i m selecting all the drivers, do i only have to select the specific driver ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller
And also i m using laptop and i dont have a usb floppy drive but is there a way to use usb flash drive i have 8gb or use a cd instead if its possible.

I don't understand why it is not working for you.
According to the chipset specs for your notebook you are trying to install the correct driver (ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller).
It shouldn't matter if you select them all or just the right one.
I always suggest slipstreaming all of them if you are unsure of which AHCI driver to use.
The only device you can use to load the drivers at the XP F6 prompt, is a floppy drive.
XP will not "see" any other media except a floppy disk with the drivers on it.
You can go ahead and try a USB flash drive, but it won't work.
