1) you have to make sure that you have ALL the required Windows 7 drivers for your Laptop AND additional devices/application (eg. Wifi adapter, Modems, USB DTV, External Keyboard, etc).
2) get and install a 'Windows 7 UPGRADE' for your current Operating system. (Check for free upgrade?)
3) Windows XP mode (and native Virtual PC) is only available if you upgrade to the Professional or Ultimate versions AND your CPU and BIOS support 'Hardware Virtualization' ... even my Intel Dual Core T4200 processor does not support this feature!!!
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
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
try to boot the windows from external DVD or CD ROM on USB if you have acces to your BIOS set the bios to boot from USB. i think your CD/DVD rom is not working properly, or is no booting from it bios is not setup corectly.
Follow these steps to re-install the driver for the webcam. You will need to be logged in as an Administrator or have an Administrator password ready.

Hi, I have the same problem, and I have just found out that you can buy
a USB Infrared IrDA adapter from Amazon or eBay. I am thinking of
trying this, but haven't bought one yet. I don't know whether it will work.
