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

On HPs web site you will find the driver that you need to install to replace the old drive for vista

When you select the model of your lap top it will come up saying windows vista or XP and make sure that you select XP so that you insure proper installation of the driver

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

Gets error code 0x0000007B when I attempt to install XP on hp pavilion dv6-1245dx pre-installed with Vista


Nomally on a vista installed lap you will have reverse compatibility issues when you try to install xp cause vista is a newer editon than xp. So it would be advisible to use a virtual machine software to install xp inside vista.By doing this you can simultaneously run vista and xp at the same time.you can download free software line SUN VMWare.

Installation for xp problem


all the hardware on the laptop is most likely configured for windows vista meaning it will not allow xp to load up because your hardware cant run it

Windows os


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.
