    I am trying to install Windows XP Home Edition and I am getting a blue screen detailing a STOP error after it apparently loads all drivers and gets to the last part where it should start the installation. The error is something like: STOP: 0x0000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) - I know it is not the hard drive, because I am currently trying to install is on a 320GB IDE hard drive, and before I was attempting to install it on a 640GB SATA hard drive.

    Here is the exact hard drive I am trying to install it on:

    Here is my computer. It is a Gateway DX4720-03:

    Here are my computer details, as EVEREST tells:

    It's a brand new drive so I cannot see it being a virus or hardware problem. How do I actually install drivers on a drive that has no OS controlling it?
