What kind of windows you wanted to install? Compaq d5 are pentium 4 computers with maverage of 1gb of ram I believe. I would say install XP on it. Vista will do but will be slow. The link will be your guide in installing XP.

Need a recovery disc! i recently bought one with a completely erased hard drive. i have xp software and key dut need to recover disc prior to loading. any help?


If HP/Compaq cannot supply you with a recovery disc, then you can get around this.
Install Windows XP then download the device drivers for your model laptop and install them on your laptop. You can use a another computer with Internet access then copy and install them on your laptop.

You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Unmountable Boot Volume BSOD


0xED is not just specifically present on HP computers but all PC-based computers which has XP or later using NTFS on it. It can be resolved by doing a chkdsk /f /r or by performing a repair installation using windows. This is caused by software corruption (which is repairable using the steps aforementioned) or hardware failure, which may lead to OS reinstallation or harddrive replacement
