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.
