New hardware isn't designed with 9 year-old operating systems in mind. If you want support from Dell, you'd be best served sticking with Windows 7.

That said, you need to download the F6 drivers for the SATA controller. That is what's causing the bluescreens... the default driver XP loads crashes when you get to the "Setup is starting Windows" point.
