Installing XP pro on my presario C700

I am installing XP pro on my presario C700. I originally hadd a trial version of VISTA Home premium and I hated it. During the installation process, it was told me setup cannot be completed because Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in my computer. It is telling me to make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer and that disk related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a namufacturer supplied diagnostic or set up program.

    I take it you reformatted your hard drive?
    Just how are you trying to install the O/S? Did you boot from the XP disk?
    In the CMOS setup--is your hard drive correctly identified? Does the system show that it is installed?
    Have you gone in and told the CMOS setup to load it's default settings?
    And lastly, what XP disk are you using? Is is a proprietorial disk for another computer?

If your XP disk is pre-SP2, it doesn't have SATA drivers. You will either need to follow the instructions at http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html to create a CD with the SATA drivers slipstreamed into it or borrow someone else's WinXP SP2 CD to perform the install (make sure you use your product key from your disk when doing this one).

Changing OS from windows vista to xp


You can install xp on a vista laptop, you will need an xp install cd and you will need to backup your data (it will be erased in the downgrade process). As for the drivers, go to your laptops manufactures site. They will have a support section for your laptop model where you can see if there are drivers for xp. If you have the hardware that will support windows 7, I would go with that. Xp is slow and no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 2014, which poses a security risk. Windows 7 will be supported for a while and is faster and more stable than xp or vista.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Installing XP SP3 pro on my presario C700


Most likely you have a SATA drive which windows is not detecting. Restart the setup and press F6. You will need to use another system to download the SATA drivers and save to a disk. Then when prompted you can insert the disk. You can also upgrade to XP professional which will almost always recognize the SATA drives. Good Luck.

Install windows xp to presario c700


The XP drivers exist for this model they just have to be downloaded from somewhere other than the product page for this unit on the HP site - for whatever reason they've chosen not to include the full array of drivers for the XP platform under their support link for your laptop.

Should you need any additional drivers for this unit just leave a note under this post.

Good luck!
