Installation Problems with Compaq 610

By cclkane ·
I have tried installing win xp on this laptop but all the time it reboots in the middle of the installation and sometimes it gives me a blue screen with an error 0x00000124. Does someone know how to go about this?

Well according to the M$ Knowledge Base

XP doesn't suffer from this problem so do you have the rest of the error message?

From a quick look it can be a Registry Problem so as you are attempting to install XP I would say Wipe the HDD with something like Kill Disc available free here

Then attempt to reload the system again but after you Slipstream the HP Drivers for this Model to your Install Disc if you are not already using a HP Recovery Disc.

To make a Slipstreamed Install Disc you can use nLite also available free here

Just make sure to read the instruction here before using this utility

And you can get the HP Drivers from here

You can also include any Service Packs that are not on your M$ OEM Disc and download things like SP2 from M$ Download Center here

and SP3 for XP here

Provided that you have not made any changes to this NB that is all that should be required.
