    XP sp2 + Toshiba laptop problem

    Hi!
    I'm unable to install Windows XP sp 2 on my Toshiba Satellite L40 laptop (which comes with Windows Vita installed). When I try, the xp installation proceeds to some degree and then it shows the 'Blue screen of death' then the computer restarts.
    Anyone know a solution for this? Please help.
    Thanx!

    Go into your BIOS and ensure that ACPI is disabled during the installation. That's my wild guess.
