Why do you want to install an outdated OS?

XP was developed & released before SATA became the standard so you'll either have to install the SATA drivers at the start of Windows setup, or create a new disc with SATA drivers included, or change the HDD setting in the BIOS from AHCI to Legacy (or IDE mode).

Installing XP on a relatively new computer will be a challenge, one which may ultimately prove futile. A big problem ( but not the only one) will be obtaining drivers. Acer does not list drivers for any OS older than Windows 7 and you can be sure the install media won't have them. How could Microsoft include drivers for hardware that would not exist for more than a decade in the future?

If you really must run XP do so under a virtual machine such as VirtualBox or VMWare running on a modern OS. MUCH easier.

What does it say on this blue screen? Any codes given or files mentioned?

Is the blue screen during install or afterwards when you try to start Windows?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What was on the hard drive? Did you delete all the partitions & then create one (or more) new ones before proceeding with the install?
