Hi, rayanababu. i have suggestion for u.
I suggest u using windows vista. why u want to install XP's? those windows will expired/ being old software. You know, in IT world's we need to move forward not backward. U just have to learn Vista cause either u want it or not, one day u just need to learn it. IT is the future world. Today i think there is nobody using windows 3.1 / 3.11 anymore, isn't it. even windows 95, 2000, ME also being useless. This is just my single headed Oppinion. ctc me at lamanaspirasi@yahoo.com.my.

How to disable sata in bios in compaq presario cq40


If you mean "how do you boot from DVD rom" then enter BIOS and set boot device to DVD rom on all counts. That will disable the hard drive.

I want to install xp2 in compaq presario cq40, but a blue screen is show


Hello Download the SATA driver for your particular chipset. Then download nlite (just google it). Install it and follow the directions to slipstream the driver into your installation disc. You can also add SP3 and all the drivers you need to it.
or go to bios and restore it to default setting if you have a sata hard disk then disable it in bios setting or RAID Auto/Ahci to RAID Auto/ATA then reboot from installation disk or You can get help from this site http://www.laptops-drivers.com/compaq/how-to-install-windows-xp-on-hp-compaq-cq40-115au.html
hope this helps

Compaq CQ40-108TU unable to install XP OS


Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.

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).
