BSOD when trying to install Windows XP for dual boot with Windows 7

  1. I have a new laptop (Compaq Pressario CQ61) that has Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) installed. This computer has an AMD processor. I am trying to set it up to dual boot Windows XP Home Edition.

    I didn't have any issues partitioning the hard drive. I used nLite to slipstream my Windows XP installation disk. I added SP2 and the SATA drivers. I then burned this onto a DVD disk. Next I booted from CD using the disk I created. The installation runs through loading the files, but when it gets to "Setup is starting windows" I get the blue screen of death. The stop code is 0x00000007B.

    I used the guide at the following address to download the SATA driver and complete the slipstreaming process.

    Any guidance you can provide on how to resolve this issue is greatly appreciated.
