    HP have XP drivers for this notebook on their support page, so why do you think it will be problem!

    I allready upgraded BIOS from F.05 to F.12 and still I can't disable native SATA mode!



    What do you mean after 10 mins or so "run the harddrive utility", where, in BIOS?

    Hi,



    I have a DV5-1104AX laptop with AMD Turion x64 RM70, with 320GB Fujitsu SCSI (SATA) hard drive, 3GB RAM and 512 MB ATI Graphics card. It came loaded with Vista Premium 32 bit. I am trying to install Windows 2003 Server for my education purpose but am not able to do so because i get BSOD when trying to install drivers which i found from internet (these drivers were meant for laptops with AMD). I tried installing the drivers using an external floppy drive. I cannot disable the SATA native mode in my BIOS. Please give me a solution since i am losing time and effort over this issue and my education is lagging......



    Thanks

I dont think flashing the bios is advisable unless you have had virus damage.

Your not an advanced user so dont do it, let an expert do it or a pc shop.

Now your answer is easy, downgrading a windows installation is not possible, unless

you wipe the harddrive, harddrive utility will work you can get it here:

The other idea you can also do is turn off laptop, remove battery, romove ram sticks

and let it sit for about 10 min or so. Now put them back in and run the harddrive utility

after finished, you should beable to run xp now.

    The problems with downgrading from vista to any other windows, You will probably not beable to find



    drivers for the pc, this will be a major problem, manufactures havent been making drivers for



    downgrades. And the most important thing here is you will not have sound. So just so you are aware



    of this before you do it. I highly recommend not to downgrade the pc. If it was built for Vista then vista



    it will be. Vista is in another class of windows then the other windows before it.



    Do it at your own risk!

  • riskyone101 Dec 05, 2009

    You should also try with just 1 ram memory stick installed when doing a fresh install of windows on a computer so as to avoid unneccesary BSOD`s or errors that really dont exist., because if 2 or more sticks of ram are installed then they are sharing information back and forth between each other while files are being installed to the harddrive, this is what causes errors and BSOD`s also or can cause them.

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

Tip

Vista to XP


1st to do is The Bios Configuration Settings.<br /><br />Options include... disabling "Native SATA Support" (or enabling IDE emulation) in the BIOS which allows you to install and run XP without the SATA drivers..<br />or<br />Using a USB floppy drive to install the CORRECT SATA drivers during the XP install.<br />or<br />Finding and slipstreaming the CORRECT SATA drivers for your specific laptop.. The correct XP driver information for computer can be gleaned by writing down the appropriate Vista Device Manager listings BEFORE formatting the computer.

Unable to Downgrade vista OS to windows 2003 or XP(CQ-LAPTOP)


During the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN THE BIOS then :-
Go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the SATA driver for your model laptop. This driver is used to install the 3rd party driver
during the Windows installation (during the Windows installation you need to press F6 to allow you to install the SATA driver).

If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite

http://komku.blogspot.com/2007/11/integrate-driver-into-windows.html
you can use this driver 
http://cahya.prastyanto.googlepages.com/driver-sata-ahci-4920.zip

Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted


To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:

Boot the notebook PC.

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.

Press the F6 key when prompted

Press the S key to specify the additional device.

Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)


Follow the on-screen prompts.


Or if both way is cannot be done

i have the third way

use an unattended XP installation disk
you can download it from here:
http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html
after you download
burn the CD image to the CD/DVD

Compaq presario C700 won't boot after XP install


well murray,
you did a no no, but what I would do is re-install your vista, after you run the recovery console, and reinstall the machine back to the origanl factory setup, you really don't want the XP anyway, I did that on my dell Inspron m 8600, and I kept getting the B.S>O>D (blue screen of death) the computer came out with vista, all the drivers and required os is included in the factory included software, XP doesn't offer all the drivers for your specific machine.

Restore the system with the recovery disk and vista and you will be alright, you wouldn't like XP after vista on a machine, as it doesn't operate properly, take it from the one with experiance with his own Dell computer and will NEVER go back to XP!, Vista has issues, but your machine was made for it and best left alone.
