Reboot

Enter BIOS [ start up] , usually by hitting the DEL key but it could also be another key . Instructions will be on the black and white txt screen .

Find out how many hard drives are installed . If there is only 1 then change the setting so the hard drive is set to "native IDE " [instead of AHCI . It may even be so old that the hard drive is listed as SCSI

Native IDE could be called something similar , but definitely with IDE

After those changes windows XP will install without further problems
