Replacing Windows 7 with XP

HP Recommended

I have an HP EliteBook 8560P running Windows 7.  I have some legacy (LabVIEW) programs that run under XP, but cannot be converted to run under W7 and cannot be re-written.  I am having difficulty getting XP loaded.

 

I set the bios to boot from the CD drive.  The computer reads the disk, loads all of the drivers, says "Starting Windows", then after about 5 seconds blue screens.  I performed the suggested actions:  chkdsk /F and scan for viruses, but nothing was found and the startup fails.  I tried a second XP CD - no change.

 

The data dsplayed is: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

 

Is there another way I can load XP?  Any way to format the disk and start fresh?

 

Thanks,

 

Dennis Agosta

Dose your notebook BIOS have the option to disable Native SATA or change from SATA to IDE mode?
