Every time i try to install windows xp on this laptop i just keep getting an error message. i was told i need to disable the AHCI, how do i go about doing this?


Installing XP on a SATA drive requires an additional step:

http://xphelpandsupport.mvps.org/how...ws_xp_on_a.htm

However, Most newer BIOS allow an Alternate method for SATA . . Go into the bios and check the "Sata Operation" setting,

change it to "Raid Autodetect/ATA if it is not already. Now try to install XP ( could be IDE Mode, Compatibility Mode or Legacy Mode - different BIOS use different terms )

some will say IDE instead of ATA)

If there are no such settings you'll need to slipstream the sata drivers on the XP CD, follow the instructions in this guide :

http://www.digitgeek.com/how-to-slip...rs-into-xp-cd/

or

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...-installation/

Or, you might consider installing Windows 7 . .

1.FIRST YOU DO ONE THING IF YOU USING XP OS MEANS CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO IDE OTHER WISE CHANGE THE SATA MODE TO AICH.
2.IF BOOT WITH CD MEANS CHANGE BOOT PRIORITY CD/DVD ROM
2.IF YOU BOOT WITH HDD MEANS CHOOSE HDD.

I was try and already load in the windows xp setup screen (blue setup screen) but after I press F8 to agree with continous then show me like a caution page you need to exit setup, the descripiton is like...


Hello

1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

Now try install XP.....DO NOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot.

Cant detect hard drives during the process of loading xp


Just pres F2 key on startup. Go into bios. In bios find HDD and press enter next to mode. Select IDE mode and press f10 to save changes and exit. You can install XP now. Alternatively you can use USB floppy drive to load SATA drivers.
Let me know if you need assistance on that

I can't downgrade Vista to Xp


You can install windows XP.
 
First go to BIOS and change sata mode to IDE mode
or option to disable SATA Native mode

then choose mode to IDE or disable SATA Native mode
then install windows XP

If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite

read this 
http://komku.blogspot.com/2007/11/integrate-driver-into-windows.html
you can use this driver 
http://cahya.prastyanto.googlepages.com/driver-sata-ahci-4920.zip

Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted


To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:

Boot the notebook PC.

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.

Press the F6 key when prompted

Press the S key to specify the additional device.

Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)


Follow the on-screen prompts.


Or if both way is cannot be done

i have the third way

use an unattended XP installation disk
you can download it from here:
http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html
after you download
burn the CD image to the CD/DVD
then install XP using that CD/DVD
