It came preloaded with Vista, so I thought I could easily install XP on
it. Downloaded the SATA driver from HP and I hit F6 during the XP install
to add the third-party driver, install seemed to be ok, but upon first
reboot BSOD. Some sort of stop error but I can't tell what it is because
the machine reboots almost immediately.

Grrrrrr
