Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
GETTING PROBLEM WITH WINXP/VISTA INSTALLATION
I have found this from another forum hope it will work:
For Installing Vista, some users reported that after resetting the BIOS to default (F9), the VISTA installation running smoothly.
In your bios the information of "non vista os installed" is "the Factory installed OS" for this laptop. Probably, you bought this laptop with freedos OS.
I recommend you to install VISTA for this model, however, some users with their own reasons feel the need of XP as their OS.
Up till now, they end up having a hardware conflict between Audio and modem. Some of them can tolerate it, some still finding for the solution.
Unfortunately, they could NOT ask a help from HP/Compaq since HP/Compaq ONLY support VISTA for Operating System.
A policy that encouraged by Microsoft to FORCE users to migrate to VISTA
