Hi!

I'm trying to install windows xp on my acer aspire one d270-1596 (It's pre-loaded with windows 7 starter), but every time I start the installation process for xp by booting it from the dvd... it loads a few things and then it blue screens and gives me an error. How do I overcome this?

Please let me know if more details are needed as well!

Any help is much appreciated!

during the installation of XP you need to load the chipset drivers or you need to slipstream them into the XP CD
