Well yes you can install windows xp without the FDD. But it will be best to first gather all the XP compatible drivers for your Acer Aspire T650 at this link http://global.acer.com/support/index.htm before beginning to downgrade your operating system, burn all your XP drivers into a Disk backup your personal file. Then you can begin the installation.

My Acer Aspire T650 Computer came with Windows XP Home Edition installed on it. However, viruses invested the operating system and I had to do a fresh installation. Because the computer did not come with...


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.

Setup didnot find hard disk


Either you are trying to install XP on a SATA disk - in that case you will need the driver

or (if you try to install Vista or 7) the hard disk is dead, replace it.

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.
