Default Please HELP: XP will not install after format with Ubuntu gparted

So I originally had Win10 running on a client's Compaq laptop. It was a bit
top heavy(and very buggy) so I installed Ubuntu. Clean and VERY fast. but
the client does not like it (

I have now deleted the partition using gparted and the original WinXP disc
will NOT install. It does boot and starts copying files... but then the
DBSOD!!!

I have now tried various different levels of format, including Remake Boot
Sector... but still the same Dreaded Blue Screen of Death.

There are minimal options in BIOS... and the install disc installs perfectly
well on another machine?

What am I missing??

Go and get a geek to fix it for you. You're too thick to know anything.

There's always just replace the HD and start from
zero. Use the old HD somewhere else.
