I recently bought an HP G60-506US Laptop on Black Friday. It came with windows 7. I run a small production company and do a lot of recording with my PC that uses XP Pro. I wanted a laptop so I could record when I play out. I have a Boss GS-10 that I record through that plugs in via USB. There currently aren't any drivers that support the GS-10 for windows 7. I've tried to contact Boss about the issue and got no response.
Win 7 is so new they don't even make a driver for my cell phone yet... don't have the time to wait for drivers so I want to downgrade to XP Pro cause I know it will work.
I have an empty Western Digital 120 GB SATA drive that I want to install XP on. I plan on keeping the original 160 gb HDD with win 7 for when they do finally make the drivers I need. I have an XP pro sp3 installation disk that I've used to install on various computers... never had a problem!
This time how ever I got a BSOD before I could install XP. I did some research and it seems that the XP disc can't read my SATA Drive. I read in a message board that I needed to switch my HDD setting in my Bios. I then found out that My laptop doesn't have that option. I then read about slipstreaming the SATA drivers into my XP disc using Nlite. I tried this and it seemed to work.
XP installed but when it went to boot I got the BSOD with the code
0x0000007B (0xBACCF528,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000). I can't run in Safe mode either. I'm completely stumpped on this one! The guys in the IT dept. @ work are stumpped as well! They had never even heard of slipstreaming! Doesn't say much about the company I work for! LOL! Anyone have a clue?
