Hi if you are trying to install the XP as a second operating system on the system then can follow the instructions

1. if you already have a secondary drive or a partition on the harddrive fine else create a partition on the harddrive as it is not advisablr to have two operating systems on the same drive (logical or otherwise)

2.in the bios enable the first boot device as CD and second boot device as HDD0 and so on

3. now insert the WinXP CD in the drive and boot the system
it'll 1st load the files and all and then try and search for the installed operating systems

4.will find the Vista installed and will prompt you to select a drive to install the new XP select a drive letter other than the C:\ where the Vista is loaded and then on just simply follow the instructions and you are good to go

Hi,

Even if you manage to install Windows XP, you will not find the drivers for sound/video because this operating system is not preferred by the manufacturer.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

How to install xp in compaq presario cq-40.


Assuming the system came preinstalled with XP, you should have a Cd marked, "Compaq Operating System CD", mine was red. If not, insert the XP install/upgrade CD you purchased from the store. Follow the onscreen instructions and when prompted for a license key, use the key on your desktop label for the reinstall or the key that came with your product on a new install.

Here is a step by step with screen shots.

I have Windows Vista Home edition installed in My Compaq Presario 700. I have been experiencing a slow down in the performance from last 3 days. So tried to install Windows XP. But It immediately shows...


You need to format the drive so back up all docs etc that you want to keep and then boot from the install disc (make sure it's an install disc NOT an upgrade) then you will see an option to format and partition the drive. The problem is that Vista is an upgrade from xp, and it won't allow you to downgrade.

  • Motherboard: MSI MS-7525
  • Chipset: Intel G31 Express 
  • Video: Integrated graphics using Intel GMA 3100

Why not win xp load in compaq presario cq40


Hi,
The notebook is preinstalled with a SATA hard drive which needs seperate drivers to be installed inorder to get the hard drive detected. The drivers for the SATA can be installed only by using a floppy drive. As the notebook does not have a floppy drive installed, we can either try disabling the SATA native support in BIOS or install the drivers with the help of a USB floppy drive.
Here is the link for SATA driver:

Check the following document to install SATA dirver without using the floppy drive:

HP Compaq Presario 700 series was originally designed for XP and Vista, therefore you can install XP on it.

After installing Windows XP, you will need to install all drivers.

This is possible but will take some patience. Install Windows XP & Service Pack 2 Then check what drivers are NOT installed by going to device manager. Then go the the Compaq page that lists the drivers for Vista: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&product=3446906&lang=en Make a note of the name/model of these drivers and search for the XP equivelent usually by visitng the device manufacturers website. Im sorry this is complicated and long winded but its the only way.
