You can solve this by going into the bios setup & changing the boot order. Make the dvd/cd drive 1st in boot line then hdd. This should allow you to boot up from the windows xp disc. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

I need a recovery disk for a HP Compaq D51sp2.4


You need the disks from HP the model you have is a EVO d510 SFF you will need the configuration tag number and the serial number. 1-800-227-8164 If they aren't available from HP try a third party by googling d510 recovery disks there may be some third party suppliers for them. The third party are usually a little more expensive.

Hello i have compaq evo d510 and


You need to partition your Hard drive to however much you want reserved for the Linux OS. You need to get a live CD of the Linux distribution you want and after you have partitioned your Hard drive, you need to boot from the live CD and install Linux onto the Partitioned part of the hard drive. DO NOT install Linux onto the regular partition, this will mess up your current operating system

Yes you have to delete the partitions making one large drive and then format it in NTFS as XP is more secure in this file system and utilizes the space better.

Can i replace 2.8ghz(bus speed 800mhz, cash memory 1mb)in compaq evo d510 sff model methor boad intel 845g


Yes up to 3.2Ghz with same Bus speed. cache doesnt matter.

Extreme editions and some 3.2Ghz/3.4Ghz chips will need you to flash the BIOS

Let me know how you get on...
