I purchased a used Dell Precision T1500 that has a XP Pro COA It will load Vista and Win 7 But will not load XP or Pro. I get a blue screen with PCI.sys every time I try to install it. I have tried Ghosting an image of XP him edition service pack 3 and it always halts during the Ghost recovery. I really need this image on this mach as i have proprietary software that will only run in XP
Your system has a SATA HDD. XP was released before SATA went mainstream therefore it does not have built-in SATA support. You will have to use one of 3 methods to get XP to install. Either that or install Win7 & run XP in a virtual machine.
