Can't install Windows XP Home on Compaq CQ50-139M Notebook

\015 I can't restore my notebook to Vista any more (froze up) and don't really want to. I have a good Windows XP Home SP-3 installation CD. When I go to install XP the process stops with "...Errors on the Hard Drive.." message on a blue screen. The hard drive checks out ok and I've copied most of the files want from the drive by using a Sata -USB enclosure and reading the HDD on another computer.I have installed XP home on several old laptops and desktops with few problems but on this newer machine it doest work...The hard drive is a 2.5" SATA WD 1600BEVT . Are SATA drives compatible with XP Home OS? Is there something in the BIOS to change--seems there are very few options in the BIOS I am seeing...Nothing about Hard Drives except boot order. Is there an advanced BIOS setting option?Thanks,Carl\015

Answers :

I would run a deeper scan of the hard drive while hooked up to the SATA -USB enclosure. Try using either Seatools or Western digital Data lifegurad tools and run the long scans. If the XP CD is in fact SP-3 it should have all of the necessary drivers for SATA drives. I am suspecting some bad sectors and a possibly failing hard drive, which would also explain why Vista froze.
