OK Get a docking port the dock has two ports one for cd-rom the other has muti-capabilitys but anyway this will solve ur problem.

The other way and cheaper way is to get a laptop to desktop ide converter hook up laptop hdd and reformat this will also tell you if u can get XP but i think the compaq comes with a 4GB and xp pro is 2.5GB so just install xp and the compaq armada's drivers. Hope it Helps

Message says that there is insuffient memory when trying to install or run Windoes 98Se on machine with 2MB Ram


FYI,
Minimum hardware requirements for Windows 98:
1. 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended).
2. 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
3. Hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
6. One 3.5-inch high-density floppy disk drive.
7. VGA or higher resolution (16-bit or 24-bit color SVGA recommended).

If your PC does not meet the above minimium requirements, you are bound to get errors popup installing or running software.

Hope it helps.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
