Cannot install XP in a HP s3220la

By fcampos_z ·
I have a couple of PC that came with vista and I need to downgrade to XP. Every time I was trying to start the pc with my XP cd show me a blue screen, I tried with my 2003 server and same problem. I thought that was the vista partition, so I start with my ubuntu cd, format the HD delete the partition and I still have the problem...
I ran off ideas...
Please some help required here

Set bios to factory defaults?
Got any weird disk hardware?
Got a weird XP CD?

make sure your CD is not scratched, scuffed or dirty.

I have put a link here for you. You need this software to do a harddrive wipe to get all the files off the hdd. This software is free to use and to download just click on the link.
Hope all works out.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.
