    is is booting only from XP now, or do you have a choice, to boot in XP or Vista, and after some time, it directly boots into xp?

When i am installing windows xp3 in compaq presario cq40-301tu there displayed blue screen error....do u know the solution to get out of this error & continuing the installstions??


A) Installing same version of Windows, or a lesser version;

Enter BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

{Windows doesn't like being copied over by the same version, or a lesser version.
The above will make the computer boot up from the Windows XP sp3 disk you have}

B) If your computer came with a version of Win Vista, and you are trying to install WinXP over it, reply in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment

Can't install xp in compaq laptop


you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.

Cannot Install Win XP on Compaq Presario CQ60 104TU


Format Your HDD firstly, using any boot CD like Hiren's boot or similar. Then install XP. The drivers You can download from Compaq site. But REMEMBER! Backup Your data and make a restore DVD FIRST!

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.

Help!!


Is it a restart with a blue screen? Is it XP?
If it is XP do the following:
Boot the laptop with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I want to install windows xp sp2 instead of windows vista. there is inbuilt windows vista for my laptop hp compaq 6720s.plz healp me how can i install windows xp.


It's a relatively simply procedure, 1st download all of the necessary drivers for your laptop from Compaq's website under the support section. You'll want the drivers for Window's XP. Either burn these drivers to a CD or place them on a flash drive. Also if you already have documents or data on the laptop that you would like to keep you'll need to back that up as well to either a CD/DVD or a flash drive.

Next you'll need a Windows XP installer disk. Place the disk in your laptop and reboot. The system should prompt you, asking you if you'd like to boot off of the CD press any key. Hit any key and the computer should boot from the XP CD. The system will take a while as it loads up the installer shell. If the system does not boot from the CD you will need to go into the BIOS or CMOS and change the boot order for the computer to make the CDROM or DVD ROM the 1st boot device. The 1st prompt on the installer should be a license agreement, hit F8 to continue. The next steps will pretty much be up to you. Things like where you want to install windows XP, do you want to format the drive, etc. This sounds like your 1st install so you may want to leave everything as default. Windows should detect your Vista install and by default install it as a seperate installation allowing you to boot into either OS.

After the OS has prepared the hard disk and copied all files the computer will reboot and will boot into a installer kernel and will prompt you for even more selections. This process will take longer than the initial portion and most of these settings you can leave at default as well. When this part is complete the system will reboot again and your installation of XP should be complete.

When the system boots into windows it will ask you to create a user name, create a user name or multiple ones. Put in your driver CD or flash drive and proceed to restore your files and install your drivers. That's the revised version of it anyway.

Good Luck!
