I am trying to install Windows XP Home Edition and I am getting a blue screen detailing a STOP error after it apparently loads all drivers and gets to the last part where it should start the installation. The error is something like: STOP: 0x0000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) - I know it is not the hard drive, because I am currently trying to install is on a 320GB IDE hard drive, and before I was attempting to install it on a 640GB SATA hard drive.

Here is the exact hard drive I am trying to install it on:

Here is my computer. It is a Gateway DX4720-03:

Here are my computer details, as EVEREST tells:

Can anyone please help me?

Hi Snyder, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

What shape is the disk in, is it clean and free of scratches?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yes. It is brand new. The installation didn't work on a drive that is currently running Vista just fine, so I don't think it's that.

You can not install XP over Vista, you would have to wipe the hdd first or install it on another partition.

I have Vista on one hard drive. I've recently installed a new hard drive and want XP on it, there is no current connection between the two.

The following information is from Microsoft.

If you receive one of these error messages while you are installing Windows XP, update the computer BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers for your hard disk controller (from the manufacturer of your computer, system board, or hard disk controller), or do both. For information about how to update your computer's BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers, contact your computer manufacturer. For additional information about the availability of drivers, see the* Device Driver Issues section in this article.

I can do that, but how do I install drivers on a completely blank hard drive?

OK.

Does your BIOS reflect this drive correctly?

Are you trying to install XP...with no other unnecessary drives (external, flash, hard) connected? Such sometimes will interfere with an attempted install.

My BIOS does show this drive and I attempted installation with only my keyboard plugged in.
