Question about Computers & Internet
I need to know if it is possible to install windows xp on this particular system.
Hey there egklmnt, the official specs show it as part of its potential. So the answer is yes, however the problem will come later if your harddrive is still the 4.3 Gb one listed in the original specs for your machine. As you install the rest of your programs, the majority of the hardrive will be used up. You will constantly need to dump so you can add others. This becomes a real problem down the line if you have to restore, because that protective function of windows requires a certain empty buffer of harddrive space to maintain protection. I highly recommend you replace the small harddrive with larger one, or at least get an external harddrive. I would also recommend you max out your memory potential to 192Mb SDram. It will ease the work load on your system and also the harddrive.
Here is site with your system's origial specs:

Unfortunately, the Hard Drive size is only 4.3 GB, while WinXP takes 3 GB and requires at least 5 GB to run. Even if you did have an external Hard Drive, the amount of RAM is not enough to let you do anything. Stay with your current OS or get a new PC.
