    I started a new topic because as usual my last one lost focus! I am looking for someone who has experience installing Windows XP pro and or OEM from a USB flash drive. I am NOT looking for someone who can google my problem and point me to the links on the internet, I am well able to do this on my own! My problem deals directly with Windows XP Professional install from USB flash drive to a HP compaq d220 MT with no hardware other than a blank 80 gb ntfs formatted hard drive and an 8gb USB flash drive. No SATA, all IDE, nothing fancy. I am not interested in the HP support site, which I have read every article on this. I have searched all the forums over the last 3 months so unless its something newer than Oct. 14th 2014 I have already read it and it hasn't worked! It will load all the files but gives me the BSOD with the generic message about windows shutting down to prevent damage. It has loaded the OS on other HP computers and even a gateway. The exact error code on the blue screen is STOP: 0x0000007b, (oxf7a21524,oxcooooo34, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) I am quite able to google that myself and look at the information so once again I am looking for someone who actually has experience with this specific issue! I get the same results with the CD that came with the computer so please don't tell me to maybe contact HP to purchase another copy of the disk from them! That is not a helpful answer. Please remember to stay on focus with my topic, it's not about dell, mac, linux, windows vista or anything other than what I have posted. I am looking for someone who has actually had this problem and solved it. Not a researcher. If you don't have any knowledge on the subject please do not post just to be heard.

    hello 5 years latter

    I love your attitude, sometimes i think the whole idea of MS was to "Mission Drift" and/to escape reality, its a addiction called DID, you should google.

    Any case, I was in almost same position as you, but info was on a CD-r or three.
    I gave up and took machine to a cheap repair shop.

    they got the programs on my computer, BUT LOST MY COPY, then said i was rude for being hotly disappointed they lost my property . this program down load it turned out way beyond anything i want to do at home.
