The XP setup disk does not have the correct driver for your disk controller. Download the correct driver and save it to a floppy. When you boot from the XP install CD look for the prompt at the bottom of the blue setup screen that says "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver…” at the bottom bar. Hit F6 and follow the prompts to specify the driver on the floppy disk.

How can I install Winxp on HP pavilion DV5 laptop ?


You're Hard Drive may be dead. If XP is starting to install and then it goes to the Blue Screen of Death, that's most likely your problem. There's a slight chance that you're power inverter has a fluctuating power level that is causing a disruption, but that's very unlikely. Have you done any tests with any boot CD's to check the hard drive's function?

Won't boot


Here is the cause, and I think you will have to re-install the operating system. Not knowing your machine model number, I have no idea if the operating system recovery is imbedded in the hard drive or not.

If you receive a blue Dell line across the top of the screen during power up, press F11 to see if you can get into the recovery mode. If so, just follow the instructions.

Update 4090 xcdt


Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also.
Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,

When i was trying install winxp the system haunged up


Usually when this happens it is either a physical hard drive problem or a hard memory problem (sometimes it is other hardware but more than 90% of the time it is of these two components) . Google and download DFT, burn it to disk following the manufacturers instructions, boot the system to it and do an advanced full test. If that comes back clean, Google and download Memtest and follow the same steps. If both of these comes back clean, it is possible that there is some other hardware issue. If doing a full install be sure to format the disk, if doing a soft install (repair install) then you may be forced to do a full clean install.

You can repair windows without deleting your files. Your files will still be intact. To do this, ff. these steps:
  • Insert your WinXP disc.
  • A message will appear saying "Press any key to boot from cd", you can press Enter key.
  • Windows will start. Wait 'til the Terms of Agreement shows Press F8 to agree.
  • There will be options to install WinXP or to use Recovery Console. In this time choose Install WinXP.
  • It will now search for your previous WinXP installation.
  • This section now let you choose whether to Install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to REPAIR your windows.
  • Choose REPAIR so that your files stored in your harddisk will not be deleted.
  • Wait 'til it finishes the installation.
*Drop a comment when done. Feel free to ask me. I will gladly assist you.

Failure to load windows


If you can try a different hard drive. And make sure the format of the hard drive that's installed doesn't freeze or doesn't complete.
Those are just the first things that popped into my mind,
I'm sure other's will have more suggestions.
Good luck.
