Exclamation XP Installation Problem (showing acpi.sys blue screen error)

I am using HP Pavilion DV6-2020ax. It has preinstalled window 7 home premium. When I tried to install XP it showed blue screen msg with ACPI.sys 0x0000007E etc...... . In internet some person said to change the sata option in the bios so as to install it. But I found no such option in my bios. I have already upgraded my bios from F.08 to F.15.
Please help me I have some important software that cannot run on window 7 but can run on XP.

Thanks

Re: XP Installation Problem (showing acpi.sys blue screen error)

THe problem is that XP isn't SATA ready, fix by turning it to IDE mode.

Goto your BIOS, look for hard disk setting that says AHCI, switch it to IDE.

Re: XP Installation Problem (showing acpi.sys blue screen error)

Thank u very much for your urgent reply.
But i don't find the option in my bios for hard disk setting( AHCI).
I think that option should be in SYSTEM CONFIGURATION option of the bios.
But that option includes only:
LANGUAGE
VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY
CARD READER / 1394 POWER SAVING
FAN ALWAYS ON
BOOT OPTION

My bios (F.15) is the latest available for my system from HP website. Is it the system doesn't support XP?

Re: XP Installation Problem (showing acpi.sys blue screen error)

firstly remove all unnecessary hardware devices, Then try booting in safe mode to test whether it is a third party software/hardware compatibility issue.

Try this link to findout what your 0x7E was associated with.

I would suggest you to remove all extra peripherals(Printers, Modem, Flash Cards etc) connected to your PC and then in BIOS go load Default settings.

Re: XP Installation Problem (showing acpi.sys blue screen error)

I have tried what Bugsy and X-caliber told but still it shows the same( i.e. no ACHI option in the bios). Is it because of the system is AMD processor?

AHCI is under IDE settings or something.
