Firstly make sure your computer hardware can support xp. get a genuine copy of xp,boot with it and follow the onscreen instructions.make sure you have a backup of your data,as depending on what you choose,there is an option of Formatting the hard disk which erases everything from the computer.

search for your computer model on google or the manufacturers website if you know the manufacturer name.if you give me the exact model and make i might be able to help.

dont forget to backup your data!

Hi i have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 i have reformatted the hard drive and am trying to instal windows xp Professional Genuine CD. I can access bios utility no problem and i start install for winxp it...


This because you dont have AHCI drivers required for Win XP and you set in BIOS either sata controller or ide controller to an AHCI. You must set to native IDE or anything else like that.
If you wish set an AHCI driver you must press F6 during starting windows XP setup. And put the drivers (get it here) to floppy disk, it will prompted to install required drivers..
Another way to install driver without floppy disk you must inject the driver to windows XP installation CD...

P.S : you cant put the drivers onto floppy, because it wont be read by Windows XP setup..

Installation problem of windows xp on compaq presario cq60-104tu


its most likely your hard drive is not recognized by xp because it is a SATA drive. You need to go into your BIOS and set the compatibility mode for sata. or if your bios does not have this option then you need to install the drivers when xp asks if you would like to install any third party drivers during setup check with your manufacturer for the required drivers
