Installing XP on computer with SATA hard drive

I recently come across with a problem downgrading a computer comes with Windows 7 to Windows XP, but during setup following error appears telling about Virus or Checkdisk /F bla bla bla,


***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xf78d2524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


Dont' worry, give following a try, might be it will work for you aswell,


Go to Computer BIOS by pressing F2 or F10 or Del depending on your computer

Go to Storage Option / Drive Configuration

Search for option saying SATA Emulation and change this to IDE from AHCI.

Accept / Save your setting by pressing F10 or Save and Exit

Run Windows XP Setup again


Hope it will work
