I tried to upgrade my V5303 to Win 7 Ultimate and had considerable trouble, i.e., it would not load.

 

So I reformated the drives and tried to load Win xp Pro with the idea that I would upgrade to Win 7 Ultimate.

 

I get the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).

 

Can anyone help?

What media/method was used to attempt reinstall of XP Pro?  Exactly what steps did you take?

What's the origin of the disk?  If it wasn't an "original installation cd"...what makes you think that you can install Windows using said disk?

 

What error message was reflected in the BSOD?

I purchased and downloaded xp pro from a university and burned an iso dvd.  

 

I didn't write down the BSOD.

 

I reformatted the disk to clean it on another computer.

Set up starts from the bootable cd.
