I have a HP Pavilion dv7t-1000 laptop and I want to install XP on it. It has a SATA drive of course and there is no option in the BIOS to change from SATA to IDE. It may have this option disabled and hidden but I'm not sure. I have tried slipstreaming the drivers into a XP CD but despite this I still get the BSOD. I even tried the actual XP CD and using a USB floppy drive and F6. I got close to an install but ultimatey got the BSOD. So I have to ask and maybe someone can tell me, Is my particular laptop just not going to accept XP period? Please advise.
