When does it BSODs?

Have you tried changing sata devices from AHCI to IDE, or the other way around?

Edit: in the Bios, sorry for forgetting to add this info...

Don't look at the open window: I got the picture from the internet. Check line 7:
"SATA operation": it will be either AHCI or IDE.

You need a SATA driver at F6 on the XP install. Not gonna happen. There was never an XP driver made for that unit. W7 or newer is it.

New laptop drives are formatted as GPT on which you cannot install Windows XP.

You have to reformat to MBR.

You have to set Legacy Support to ENABLED.

You have to mess with the BIOS...

You have to integrate AHCI drivers into Windows XP installation media.


Certainly not impossible but very involved, it can't be a quick install.
I am about to install Windows XP on a brand new Asus Skylake desktop motherboard.
Will post about it on here in a week or two.

Good question.
You can SELECT ALL all of the drivers there, press CTRL+A to SELECT ALL.
