Drivers for this can be found here. To install XP, you should be able to just insert the XP installation CD, boot from CD, and start the installation process. See same link for manuals and recovery CDs, as well as other useful information.

Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk 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 and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been 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.

The stop error code is most likely STOP:0x0000007B because windows XP doesn't have the correct SATA controller driver to install without assistance.

Options:

If available, try setting the SATA controller in BIOS to ATA or Legacy Mode.

If not available, then you will need to download the SATA controller Driver and slipstream the driver into the XP version you are trying to install

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!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.

Unable to Downgrade vista OS to windows 2003 or XP(CQ-LAPTOP)


During the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN THE BIOS then :-
Go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the SATA driver for your model laptop. This driver is used to install the 3rd party driver
during the Windows installation (during the Windows installation you need to press F6 to allow you to install the SATA driver).

How to install windows xp sp2 on compaq v3239tu


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .
