Well hi there first of all try installing a new software but only try this if you still have the driver disc that came with your motherboard.

SOURCE: Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer

Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.

SOURCE: Disabling onboard video on Acer aspire m1640

you cannot dissable the on-board graphics in the bios, in the graphic options you must choose which port you want to use, if you have a pci express card then chose pci as the primary graphics, press ok then F10 your pc will reboot and the on-board vga won't load up in windows

good luck

Comment by Kevin A, posted on Mar 13, 2008 The reason for this is that the standard XP disks do not have drivers for the SATA disk. When booting from the CD, the internal disk is not recognised and thus invisible to the XP setup program.

The problem is your computer uses a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't naitively support SATA. You have three options around this.
  1. Go into BIOS and if you have disable SATA/AHCI and set it to SATA/IDE emulation mode
  2. Download nlite http://www.nliteos.com/download.html and download sata drivers from intel's website and build your own windows XP disc and incorporate the sata drivers into it. Then use this disc to install.
  3. Download VirtualBox http://www.virtualbox.org/ and install XP in a virtual machine to run on top of Windows 7
Windows XP will go end-of-life in 2014 and then Microsoft will no longer make software that is compatible FYI.
Comment if you need any additional assistance.

I want to install windows xp-2 in my laptop presario cq42 notebook, i have a proble with hard drive for sata disable. in this laptop the bios not show the sata disable feature. so i want to disable this...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Removing Vista and installing windows xp


Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up.

"BIOS setup (f2) and set the hard drive to ATA compatible."
I would go ahead and disable everything in the boot heading besides the DVD/CD.
You also need to disable caching module before you change the drive SATA settings.
