"Error Code 7" prevents installing XP

A further note to my problem: The Intel processor is a
hyperthreading one, but I have turned this feature OFF in
case it was confusing the XP home installer. But with
Hyperthreading off I still get the error 7 message!!

Read and follow the instructions in the following articles:

When upgrading Win98 or WinME to Windows XP,
setup issues 'ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded - Error Code 7'?

How to Force a Hardware Abstraction Layer During an Upgrade or New Installation of Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;299340

"To force in a system Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) during an upgrade or installation of Windows XP,
note that during the Text-mode phase of Setup, you receive the following informational message across the
bottom of the screen:

Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver.

When this message appears, press F5. You can now make HAL choices by viewing the different options.
Note that if you instead press F7, the Standard PC HAL loads, and the ACPI compliance check is bypassed".
