Question about PC Laptops
Hi, i was very impressed by your success with the armada 1700 but your post mentioned none of the details. Would you kindly share with me the tricks of xp installation on this laptop?
The installer on my xp cd gives error message 4 and requests recovery disk. I've gone no further.
I fetched the win98 drivers
BIOS flashed with 1999 ROMPAQ update
128MB of compatible and working RAM added but, not correctly reported by BIOS
i have it running freebsd 7
the freebsd boot loader is amazing. All other installation media failed. this one gets past all obscure hardware/bios issues and the install was plain sailing.
however, for non-networked, non-technical use i want to try a stripped-down winxp with low memory requirements. Can you deliver me from the endless error screens?
