    Resolved [RESOLVED] How would I install Windows XP on a Acer?

    I know it is an outdated operating system, but I just like installing old OSes!
    It is a computer I never really use. But the Windows XP just gives a Blue screen of death when it's done "starting windows".
    Is it because the CD-ROM is corrupt? or something else

    Thanks already, Can.

    Does the blue screen happen after or during the install? If after the install have you tried booting into safe mode? What is the model no of the Acer?
    Don't believe everything you think.

    What model of Acer?

    What exactly does the Blue Screen message say?

    Does the XP install disc you are using include SP3?
