Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Availability of Windows XP on laptops

I would appreciate knowing if Gateway offers any laptops bundled with Windows XP. My problem is that Windows Vista is not compatible with my Photoshop CS2 which I use with my Gateway desktop and the cost of upgrading to Photoshop CS3,which is compatable with Vista, would exeed the cost of a laptop. What do you suggest? Please do not refer me to one of your vendors of laptops as they do not have the answer, I need to have an answer from the manufacurer, Gateway. Thank you

Windows xp on Gateway MT6723 laptop


Are you trying to install Windows XP on your laptop that has a SATA drive in the laptop?
And 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.

Looking to buy a new laptop


Many places are now offering a choice between XP and Vista for their machines. They are finding that Vista only has taken a bite out of their sales. If you find the machine you want, but it's not offered with XP, you can change the operating system fairly easy. Just about all the major manufacturers are offering drivers for XP at their support sites. They too have figured out that Vista isn't quite what they said it was, and now know it was a mistake not to offer the drivers. In my opinion as far as offering equal support for both XP and Vista for their machines, Dell is on top and by far the easiest to use, then IBM/Lenovo, Gateway, Toshiba, Sony, then Acer. HP/Compaq still has their head up their ***. You can find drivers for XP if you know the make and model of the components, ie... sound card, video card, and wireless card, if you don't know the make and model you will have to take the machine apart to get them. You will not be able to find the drivers at HP's support site, because if the machine was designed for Vista, then only Vista drivers will be found there. Not to mention that they have the most fragile motherboard on the market.
So, let's recap, BUY a: Dell, IBM/Lenovo, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony, Acer is cheaply made and has a few bugs, especially with their web cam, so think twice, and DO NOT buy an HP/Compaq. Hope this helps and happy shopping!!!
