Windows xp cd with sp3 installation


In BIOS change the boot order such that CD/DVD comes first. You will also need to make sure your hard drive runs in IDE mode since Windows XP doesn't support sata drives by default. FYI XP is going end of life early 2014.

I have ask you already how to install the dual boot os(Windows xp and Windows 7 ), but i don't complete yet .Can you explain to me again step_by_step in great detail ? because when i install windows xp...


Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

The reason why Windows XP installation CD cannot detect the hard drive is because your Toshiba has a SATA hard drive and the Windows installation CD does not have the SATA driver on the CD.
If you do not have the SATA driver then you can get around this problem. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If  you are trying to install Windows XP in latest Notebook, it will not be able to detect the Hard Drive since all the latest Notebooks are shipped with SATA Hard Drives and by default and Windows XP will not be able to detect SATA Hard Drives by default.
If you are having a Intel based Notebook, you need to download the SATA Drivers from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36001-36500/sp36132.exe

Find the instructions to create a bootable XP Disk using the SATA Drivers from the link below :

How to install windows xp in presario c700?


Thats because windows XP doesn't recognize the SATA controller on the compaq motherboard. Windows XP has known problems like this on certain SATA controllers on certain motherboards and yours happens to be one of them.

Go to this link courtesy of how to geek:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/resolving-setup-did-not-find-any-hard-disk-drives-during-windows-xp-installation/

They explain in full detail how to make a modified Windows XP installation disk that will recognize the SATA Drivers to your motherboard and will allow you to go thru with the installation. Rate me when you get the chance.

Usb stops working after 5mins or doesnt work at all


Hi,

Plug it back in and see "how many drives" are created. Some flash/usb drives create two drives when plugged in. When this happen open up both of them and one of them will allow you to save information. Try finding drivers for it. Update it. Thank you.....

Problem installing Windows XP with Asus P5RD1-VM series mothboard


Hi!
You need to copy the SATA drivers from the motherboard CD into a floppy diskette.
When you are booting with the windows xp installation CD you can see a message that says:

Press F6 for raid drivers

Press that key so windows installation CD look for the SATA drivers.
