I decided to install winXP on a new drive . All went well until " a problem has been detected and windows shut down"
win 7 runs perfectly on the old drive.
I have all the drivers for XP.
Anybody got any ideas on this ???
You'd need to build a custom XP install disc with the chipset and SATA drivers slipstreamed into it to get this to work.
If you must run XP, run it in virtual mode under Windows 7 (and keep it OFFLINE for your security and that of others, since XP has not seen any security updates since it went end of life almost four years ago).
Windows XP has reached End of Life. Your computer has ample enough power to run Windows XP as a Virtual Machine. For more details see here:
