    hello, i have a hp mini 110-3030nr that came with windows 7 starter pre-installed on it, i would love to install windows xp on it but i am having trouble doing that, my hard drive is a 160 GB 5400 rpm SATA drive, i used nlite to slipstream the needed drivers on the windows installation and it installed fine, no errors or anything, but when its done installing and does the 1st boot i get this error "Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem.

    Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware.
    Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information."

    these are the computer specs
    CPU: 1.66GHz Intel Atom Processor N450
    RAM: 1GB DDR2 System Memory (1 DIMM)
    Video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
