    I'm trying to load XP Pro on to a HP Notebook dv6 i7 7000. I did the required slipstream OS-CD addition of the SATA AHCI drivers, which allowed me to get past the common 0x0000007B error and to the "Welcome to Setup" blue screen. At this point it shows that screen for about 4 seconds then the whole system shuts down. The keys do not respond during that 4 seconds. I don't know what to do from here.

    I tried eveything in that posting and it didn't work. It's not an overheating issue.

    Progress update: After realizing I was getting no response from the keyboard during the few seconds the "Welcome to Setup" screen was showing, I added a keyboard driver to the OS CD, which allowed me to get 1 screen past the "Welcome to Setup" screen by hitting "Enter". It gave me the following message: "Setup did not find any hard drives installed in your computer". I know for a fact that a 750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive is installed and working. I previously added RST drivers (f6flpy-x86_11.2.0.1006.zip Version: 11.2.0.1006) which I thought would allow XP to see the HDD. Apparently I need a better SATA driver for my dv6-7134nr.

    yes sata is the issue then, you can slipstream the drivers to the cd, but they have to be the correct drivers

    what is the make, and model number of the sata drive and I can help you locate the correct driver, the website should have this.

    I don't know what you mean by "model number of the SATA drive". Here's what I have: System model: HP Laptop dv6-7134nr. HDD: 750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive w/ Recovery Partition. SSD:32GB SSD mSATA Hard Drive (Accelerated Cache). Intel Chipset: HM77 7 series/C216 chipset family. Motherboard: 181B. Processor: i7-3610QM. I don't know what else to provide.

    OK, I accept that I can't load XP Pro (32) on to a newer HP laptop. So what late model laptop brand(s) will still allow XP Pro to be installed ?? (3rd generation i7 systems for example)

    pent 4s will support xp

    whats going on is all new pcs are linked with Microsoft

    thats why there bs scare all over about xp being done

    wrong no

    xp is alive and well always will be

    the problem is all new pcs like my all in one only takes 7 8 and on and you cannot run xp or find all the drivers

    ebay is full of old pcs laptops etc i go to drop boxes at night and unload 10 or more wasted good pcs and lptops

    on the curb garage sales its a gold mine i give elderly nursing homes boys girls clubs churches to much to list that love them and have yet to hear a complain except morons who update everything to new versions

    good luck also most often the five pound one that have all the connectors the new dont like my 5 pound dell great pent 4 laptop jsu slow so going to do me and hard drive


    xp will support up to 2 gigs of ram 2 gigs xp is so fast xp supports up to four cores

    so still good and faster then 7 and 8 to boot and running
