Question about Compaq Presario C700T Notebook

Open Question

The solution to installing XP on a Vista machine is to find the SATA driver for your chipset. I googled mine and got it that way. XP doesn't have SATA drivers on the disc and never will. Microsoft doesn't want you to use it anymore. Next, you need to find all the drivers for your hardware. I know HP doesn't support a "downgrade" and only has a few of the XP drivers. Next step is to download a copy of nlite. It's a free program that allows you to slipstream drivers and service packs into your installation. Make a new iso image and burn your new and improved installation cd. Nlite also let's you tweak your installation and make it a fully unattended version if you want to. After you have done all this, put the disc in the drive and reboot. You might get a black screen for a few minutes but don't worry, it's just installing the SATA drivers. You should be good to go now:)

Whenever i connect a SATA hard disk on my ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset motherboard and try to install an operatin system it says no hard disk found please solve my problem


The chipset in your motherboard doesn't have in it a controller for the SATA, it uses an external one - ULI M1573. For it to be activated and the disk detected its driver must be already in the install disk. Unfortunately the XP install disk doesn't have any SATA drivers and the ULI driver isn't included in the original Vista disk . So you must add it on a floppy during install Here it is http://download.cnet.com/ULi-SATA-Controller-M1573/3000-18492_4-159398.html

Compaq CQ40-108TU unable to install XP OS


Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

Windows xp installation problem


You might need to use the "Floppy" version of the Driver upon install (if you know what the chipsets are. Most likely it's Intel and you can slip stream the driver files into a new XP CD.
However if a partition is formated from Vista and you attempt to install XP over it without formatting it, crash is almost certain - XP and Vista have different versions of NTFS.
If you want both XP and Vista on the same machine, ALWAYS install the older one first! i.e. XP first. And create only 1 partition in XP where you intend to install on.
Then install Vista afterwards with Vista created partition.

Remove vista and install XP on HCL laptop


Your laptop probably has SATA hard disk installed in it. You will need to install from an XP SP2 or later CD for native SATA support. Otherwise you will need to get the SATA drivers for the chipset being used on the laptop and slipstream them onto a new bootable CD or go through the process of adding the drivers manually during the initial phase of the installation.

Installing WIN XP SP2 in aToshiba Satellite A205-S7459 Vista original


Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd

simple solution: get WINDOWS XP CD with SP3 it contains support for sata drives

Workable Solution:

this specific model of Toshiba was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

OK I managed to install XP on Targa Traveller on 1591!
With the CD of window XP it is necessary to make F6 for the starting up of the installation and to use a diskette with the pilots(drivers) SATA of NVidia nforce. Naturally the most practical are of incorporated the pilots(drivers) SATA into the CD Windows but I knew how to make;) link for the pilots(drivers) SATA:
Http://garlon.free.fr/Appli/NVidia /
If after the intallation of the pilots(drivers) at the beginning of the copies of file An error of copy of file (cann' t copy spin NVr dll) make Esc (65 files nvidia not copied) and continue the installation up to the restart.
I put out(switched off) the computer, removed the hard disk to put it in an external box usb on another computer I have to copy files dll to System32 or system32 / drivers, file .inf on file windows/inf and file .sys on system 32 or system32 / drivers
I restarted the computer and finished the installation links Pilots(Drivers) xp (I am not sure for Chipset drivers Chipset...you must verify)
