How to install xp from my laptop after boot option i pressed any key but not responding


Check that your DVD Drive is working or not by testing the XP installation Disc on other notebooks. If it doesn't work, then you may need to install XP using a USB drive. For that, use 'Win to Flash' software. I am providing you the link that will guide you through the entire process.

Note that when you are actually installing XP and the boot menu of your Pen Drive appears, you have to select TEXT MODE INSTALLATION (first option). Then you will be able to install as if you were doing it through CD, but at much greater speed.

The problem is that I have just installed a new hard drive on an Acer Aspire 5135. Now, when I switch it on all I'm getting onscreen is OPERATING SYSTEM MISSING. All this when cd rom is set as boot...


Go into the BIOS and make sure that you have set the CD drive as the boot drive. If you are sure it is, then there is a problem with your install disc. If you have another or can borrow a friends try that. You can also creat an image of your install cd and copy that to a USB drive, the Aspire One can boot off of a USB drive and I have installed XP this way many times.

You will have to boot of the XP install disk and reformat a FULL NTFS format, first, that will enable you to wipe the drive and install XP. To save an email, or any file to a flash drive, simply copy/paste or drag and drop onto the drive, the drive must be Formatted first, format FAT32. OR when asked for location to save, point it to the flash drive as normally done.

I have a aspire 5515 acer with Vista Basic and i want to install Xp Pro. When i try to install Xp pro it starts and the comes back that it is quiting the installion because it will damage something. How do...


There's no single way to install Windows XP. As there is no CD / DVD drive, you have two main choices:

1. Purchase an external CD / DVD drive. Plug it into a USB port on the Aspire, and then access the BIOS, Make sure the CD drive is first, and insert your Windows XP disc. You should now be able to install it normally.

2. Use a bootable Flash drive. This method will be far more difficult, and requires a moderate amount of experience with computers. First you will need to install QEMU on another computer. Create a hard drive the same size or smaller than the one in the Acer. Install Windows XP to it using QEMU. Copy the hard drive image onto a USB Flash drive. Now install some version of Linux on it, such as Puppy Linux or Damn Small Linux. Howtos are available in the Related Links section below. Boot from the Flash drive, and access a command line. Find your hard drive in the /dev folder (probably sda or hda). Now issue the following command

dd if=image.img of=/dev/hda

This will make an exact copy of the hard drive image to the hard drive in the Acer. Waituntil the command is completely done. Now turn off the computer and unplug the flash drive. When you power it back on, it should boot into Windows.

The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.

Install Xp on Acer Asprie 5735z


I'd reccomend backing up data and formatting your hard drive. Then install XP from disk and put data back on hard drive. You could use external hard drive or jumpdrive. It stands to reason that SATA works with XP, because the new computers I have seen have SATA and XP working conflict-free.
