    I have exactly the same problem. Bought a new SATA drive, problem remains. I think it is a driver problem.

Blue screen means system error or hardware problem. maybe your sata drive is the problem. try to use another sata drive.

I cant download op cd


If the new hard disk is a SATA hard disl then 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.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Hi, can i install a 720 GB internal hard disk for my acer veriton? my present configuration are windows 7 pro,32 bit 160 GB HDD. thanks in advance.


I found a pdf manual here and it shows that this computer does not have SATA ports, but does have 2 IDE ports, so if it's an IDE hard drive you want to install then you should be able to. However, your 2nd IDE port is likely used by a cd/dvd rom drive, so unless you are replacing the hard drive rather than adding one, you would need to remove the disc drive. There are very affordable external usb disc drives available.

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

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.

My hard disk cant be recognize when i install xp cd to my Acer M1641 with a vista OS. my cable is sata not IDE. how can i convert my vista to XP


You will need to install the SATA drivers for XP. First, download the proper drivers for your SATA controller and put them on a floppy (will properly have to use an external floppy drive). At the beginning of the XP installation you will need to press F6 and install your drivers.
Be aware that there are only a few external floppy devices that XP will recognize. (Sony, IBM are two of them).

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.
