hi I have been trying to install XP 64 bit on a partition on my laptop and half way through i get a blue screen: 0x0000007B inaccessible boot device and this is quite frustrating because i can install XP 32 bit successfully but not 64bit.
When you power on your computer, look for a message telling you which key to press to enter your BIOS Setup - usually Delete or F2. Go into setup and change the hard drive setup from SATA to something like Compatible Mode or IDE Mode. The description varies. After you get Windows installed you'll have to update all your chipset drivers then change the hard drive access mode back to SATA.
The only other options are: Create a floppy disc with the correct drivers for your laptop if it has a floppy drive. Or build an XP cd with the correct SATA drivers. You can use Nlite and add in the text mode, pre-installation driver from the laptop manufacturer's website.
