Hello

the easiest way out is to change the bios settings so that the disk is running in native mode, search for that settings in bios then the windows XP installation should find your disks.

other way is to have a Disk drive and download the sata driver from the manufactory site.

third way is to make a new xp installation cd with the new driver.

but try the first one first. little more info about your computer should be helping me to help your more?

good luck

I upgrade my lap top which was on vista pro to win 7 ultimate and some of my my device don't work properly like the webcam, the audio speaker...


Install DriverMax 6.41.0.363 or driveridentifier http://www.driveridentifier.com/desktop.php
and drivers choose to present it requires inscription on site.

I had the same problem but once I installed these two could find the drivers it needed. You can also go to the asus website and search for the model name of your laptop.

I have another problem: after install win7, the batery not charge.
I bought the laptop with Vista, but I installed XP, now installed Windows 7, everything is working perfectly but not charge the battery, I've tried everything: calibration, tested various power plans, I ended up buying a new battery but no result . I think it must be some kind of driver or change something in the BIOS that I lack despite having returned to install XP and Vista and battery re-charging without problem. if you can help me send email jubatrakdc@hotmail.com
good luck

I have a dell lap top computer that uses vista. I would like to install my hp scanjet 4470C into it. Can it be done?


No it can't be done because HP does no more produce drivers Vista nor W7 for this unit .
Here are a few hints :
Make sure driver XP ( yes , XP ) is correctly installed . Then , go to http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html and install FreeKapture , it's free .
Load FreeKapture , clic on Scan and select WIA Hewlett-Packard . Scanner works fine in this mode . If you choose HP PrecisionScan Pro , program will hang .
In any case , no slides or negatives scans possible but the rest works .
If you have the W XP install disc , you could install a virtual version of W XP on your HDD ( http://downloads.vmware.com/d/info/desktop_downloads/vmware_player/3_0 ) You could also partition your HDD ( http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html ) and install W XP on the new one . Otherwise , you will have to buy a new scanner , what you probably already have .

Regards .

Displays no hard drive found wen installing win xp


You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone

Can i run vista and xp on my comp


install the two OS in separate drives (e.g. XP in C drive and vista in D drive) either have two hard disk drives or 2 partitions.
then you choose which one to run in the start up.

WIN XP INSTELATION PROBELM


some of the hp laptop does not allow you you to down grade to XP but if you like you have to download Easus Partition Magic Software to get the other volume or in other words to split your volume in to two then you have to install XP in other Partition/volume and if you will do that you might not find the drivers. anyways this is the first method. second method is to install virtual server on your machine like virtual Machine or Virtual Pc and use Xp while you are in Vista.
hope it will help you. thanks.

Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

I want to install win Xp Sp 2 but i can't do it


you need to have internet connection first then go to the website http://www.windowsupdate.com and you need to update the operating system from that site. in the process of updating it there will be an option there to update it to service pack 2 already.. sometimes you need to update other things first in the same website before that option comes up.
