Hi Barfly12
Happy Holidays
I am going to "give you" a few advises.
1) Take our all temp areas files, and files, folders you won't use.
2) Uninstall Software you don't use often.
3) Delete all *.tmp or *.Temp files on drice C: (carefully)
Then depending on the size of the game, install it.
if you got a particion or another slave Drive go ahead and install the game in that partition, but, you have of course to install some exec. files to C:
happy gaming....

With such a small C drive, uninstall all non os programs and reinstall to D drive. Do not use the C drive for extra stuff. Most every thing U install (even to D drive) will add some additional data to the C drive load. clean and defrag often.

You can move your files in drive D, include your sound files and movies to free up the drive C... The effect, when no more space to drive C, your computer's performance will go slow and soon just stops... You can install games on drive D instead of the inside folder of Program files...

You can download the Microsoft virtual machine or another VM system.
Like this:

After install make a virtual hard drive on your VM machine of at least10 gig. Then add your DVD/CD rom drive to the VM and put yourinstall CD/DVD in the drive. Set VM machine to boot from CD.Install on VM hard drive from within the VM machine, Type in KEY code,Bam! you now have a win xp VM!(Note: Games and stuff may not work in the VM as they do not use your video card but a virtual video card that is pretty limited!)

I Bought a Vaio computer with Windows 7 and installed. I would like to install Windows XP, how can I do it?


Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot device to CDROM.
Windows doesn't like to have the same version written over it, or a lesser version written over it..
Forcing the computer to boot from the optical drive, (CD/DVD drive), corrects this.

What is the model number?

Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.
