Problem installing Windows XP on Compaq C 740 TU with Vista


To install Windows XP, it is complicated. You need to have the drivers for your Compaq Presario available on another PC so you can copy as needed. I'd suggest going to the Compaq (now HP) site to see if drivers are available. Good luck !

Non detection of hard disk in dell laptop while installation of win xp sp2


I haven't heard of not being able to delete a partition before. You could go to the manufacturer of the hard drives website and find the software to do a low level format or you could download a linux distribution and use the installer to remove the ESIA partition.

I would need to know the model of hard drive and laptop if you need any further assistance.
