    Downgrade win 8.1 64 bit to win xp 32 bit


    Hi

    My Lenovo G50 30 is pre installed with win 8.1 64 bit.

    I never experienced win xp so I would like to install it on another partition. I'm having win xp sp3 32 bit.

    But BSOD occurs while installing XP.

    Pls help me & see the attached file.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please check your BIOS and check for ACPI, if it is there try to disable it.
