Restart the computer, just as it starts, go into the bios, sometimes it is F12, F2, DEL key, not sure what one, when you get there, select perial settings, should have somthing with SATA change to IDE, save and exit, restart and install.

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.

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Window xp not installed


CQ40 108TU (compaq) is designed to work only on Windows Vista. If XP is installed then likely some of the hardwares will malfunction. It is advised that only Vista is installed in YOUR CQ40 108TU
