Install Windows XP

by Ray_moe - 5/10/09 10:57 AM

Dell XPS 600 Plentiun D Dual core 3.0ghz 800fsb
250gb sata harddrive 80gb sata harddrive
1024 mb memory
7900 gs nvidia video card
Windows XP Home edition sp2 Oem disc

I completely lost Windows O/S for unknown reasons.
It was installed on 250 gb sata hard drive.
Upon trying to reinstall from Oem disc furnished with computer from Dell. I press f6 when asked about sata drive this allowed the install to continue.

This install did not complete as normal install in other words it did not ask for all the usual info that goes with an install.

This is a dual boot system with Ubuntu Hardy on the 80 gb harddrive.
Windows shows up as a selection in grub boot loader. When selected the screen quickly shows a 0x0000007b bsod then returns to grub.

Have searched google and Dell forum and found some suggestions. Slipstream sata drivers in windows XP was one of the papers found. The article is somewhat slim and confusing on how to accomplish this procedure.

All suggestions and help are urgently needed and will be appreciated.

Ray
