When you are installing (the now aging) Windows XP on a computer that has the latest hard drive controller technology, you may have to load an OEM device driver before you can continue with the installation.

Advanced troubleshooting for "Stop 0x0000007B" errors in Windows XP

Windows XP requires a miniport driver to communicate with the hard disk controller that is used to start your computer. If Windows XP does not supply a device driver for your controller or if Windows XP is using a corrupted or incompatible driver, you must replace the driver with a valid copy that is compatible with your controller and Windows XP.

During the first phase of the Windows XP installation, Setup displays the following message at the bottom of the screen:

Press F6 if you have to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver.

Press F6 and then follow the instructions to install a mass-storage device driver from your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
