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.

Windows problem


How have you tried, just by going to windows update and letting it run?
Does it give you any errors?

You can try downloading SP2 directly to the P.C. then install it from the saved file.

Will windows let you just skip and go straight to SP3?

make sure you have all the other updates first, then try installing SP2
