Looks like a compatibility problem with XP and the components (mobo I think)

There is no compatibility issue. Just go to BIOS and change Sata settings to ATA then only Windows XP install and Run....

Or you can download the proper driver to load at the F6 prompt... you'll need a USB floppy drive, though.

itz impossible to install Windows xp on DELL studio 15 with core i3, i5 and i7 processor. becoz the bios provided by dell does not support installation of XP . :ouch: 
It makes no difference whether you make DEFAULT configuration in BIOS as ATA or SATA.
It keeps on showing the error...
////********************


BLUE SCREEN :ouch: 



******************/////

I have tried my best to resolve this problem, i hv consulted experts, google it, talk to dell customer care.
but i got failed to find a solution.

it could only be possible if somehow one could modify default BIOS provided by reversed engineered one. though it's not officially supported and legal.

Except I have seen people do it, so your wrong. And no they didn't have to "modify the bios". Try consulting better experts next time.

another option is to use Virtual PC from Microsoft to create a virtual computer on which you can install XP. This will work on top of Windows 7, removing compatibility issues with hardware. I have seen this done on I processors on Dell laptops before.

Windows Virtual PC:

HEY FALCON,
I dont want to be rude to you, but i am successful in installing xp on DELL studio 1558 with core i3 processor only after reflashing my present BIOS ( A08 , PHONX ) to a modified old studio 1555 bios, which was made for core 2 duo processor.

and if you CONSIDER yourself an expert or have any other method, please write in detail, where you have seen this and how ???
Dont try to be smart by false claims of installing Windows XP on dell studio 1558 ( with core i3, i5 and i7 processors) with present bios (A00, A01 ,A02 ,A03 ,A04 ,A05 ,A08).
And from my side,
You could request my assembly language source code for modified bios from my website.

greetz,

There is no need to modify BIOS.

I installed win xp sp3 on my DELL Inspiron 1564 successfully just by integrating Intel SATA/RAID drivers and last version of Intel INF Update Utility.

But the problems are:

- not using all cores by multithreading applications.
- slow performance of system, even in opening explorer windows.
- very slow USB transfer rate. I think file transfer speed was equal to USB 1 devices.
