XP install BSOD

By chonert ·
I have an HP G60-235dx that had Vista on it, but now I installed a new HD (due to a virus/HD crash) and am trying to install XP on it, but keep getting the BSOD - stop: 0x0000007B. I've read many forums and it seems to be a Chipset driver issue, but I haven't found the correct one or been able to load additional drivers from the usb thumb drive during the XP installation. Any ideas?

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

But in the mean time what type of HDD is fitted here? If it's a SATA Drive you need the SATA Driver for XP and you'll need to make a Slipstreamed Install Disc as XP doesn't support the use files from USB Option only a Floppy Drive which you don't have.

You can use nLite to make a Slipstreamed Image it's available free here

Just make sure to read the Directions listed under Guides here first before making your Install Disc.

Appreciate your help

Thanks for the info - I've reposted this in the Q&A forum. It is a SATA HD, and I've tried using an XP disk slipstreamed with SP3, but nothing ever comes up when booting from it. I guess we, and others, can pick up this conversation in Q&A. Thanks again!

XP doesn't have Native Support for SATA Drives

You need to include the SATA Driver and I would include SP3 by default.
