    Don't use win8.x on a system that was meant for xp. Just don't.

    Dear mr fire,

    I had faced problems while using Windows 7 USB / DVD creation tool to install Windows 8.1. But I did not face any problem after booting from DVD on the same PC. You can try the same.:D I also don't remember whether I got the same screen at that time. I recommend you to just try. Nothing wrong in trying.:D

    Regards,

    Manu

    From WinXP Run chkdsk for all Drive in your HardDisk and shutdown then retry install Win 8.

    0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE)

    Running your flash drive from a USB3 port, maybe?

    Not a issue, 8.x contains generic USB3 drivers inside boot.wim.

    The BSOD is from XP, not 8.x. Seems that he got some weird partition layout where the active partition is encrypted/hidden or contains some locked OEM partition.

    First step at all on an older Machine would be to update the BIOS to the latest available version! Windows 8/8.1 will not work with some older BIOS's!! Also check that your hardware is compatible to Windows 8/8.1!

    The error 0x0000007B could be also came from to old MB with USB 1/1.1! That you could not use for to install Windows 8/8.1! Try first to burn the ISO to an DVD and start the setup from there!
