In some cases your newer OEM computers have a BIOS code in them to only accept newer operating systems such as Vista or Windows &, and will not accept XP. Try this...

If you don't mind losing everything on the drive, you should do a complete format of the drive. If you have another computer, you can use an EIDE/SATA to usb adapter and connect the drive to another computer, the computer will read the drive as just another harddrive, and you can access it through the control panel > administrator Tools > Computer management > disc management. There you can delete the partitions on the hard drive. When that is done, put it back in your laptop and boot with the XP install disc.

Can't install xp in compaq laptop


you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.

Compaq CQ40-108TU unable to install XP OS


Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.

Intalling window xp over vista


XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

click f5 before xp starts to load. choose halt on error and record code. google that code. most often it is a bios error after a new install (memory...etc.) sometimes you can boot into safe mode to undo a recent change. if all else fails reinstall...could be bad hard drive boot sector also.....check code first
