0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE = Typical causes: Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware, or a virus.

Are u installing the HDD drivers (OEM mass storage controller driver) by pressing F6 just before file loading starts?
Did you select fresh install & then delete the old partitions?

Or a bad hard drive. Download the DFT ISO file and use a ISO burner to make a bootable CD... DFT can be found here:

http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/d ... 16_b00.iso

Boot off that disk and choose "ATA Only". Let it detect your drive and choose ADVANCED test. It will take a little while to run, depending on the size of the drive. If you see a red box when the test complete (usually followed by a error code 0x70 or 0x72) you have a bad drive, if you get a green 0x00 you're in the clear.

Good luck

We will not tell you where to download xp3 sata enabled! That is illegal...

IF you are willing to learn and take a couple of extra steps in mixing your CD we will tell you how to ADD sata aupport to your disk...

but only if the OP owns enough legit XP licenses to cover the machines he wants to run.

so far he's made repeated requests for pointers to warez.
