Try this option first:
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA option, then try to install Win XP. You'd be able to install it.

The hard drive on Lenovo 3000 N200 is a SATA drive . As such, and depending on which XP version you have, you'll need to insert the SATA drivers disc.

There will be a message Press F6 to install third part SCSI/RAID on the bottom of blue screen.

Press F6 key (a few times), the setup program will continue loading files.After a while it will ask you to specify the driver by pressing S key,
Press S key and insert the RAID driver floppy disk into the drive.

Since the Lenovo and most computers these days won't have floppy drives, here's a solution to your problem.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Your laptop probably has a SATA hard drive, windows XP only provides with PC's/laptops with a PATA hard drive.

You have to make up your mind what your really want to do.

1) Do you want a dual boot machine, working off XP and Win7?

Here's one web site:-

http://webtrickz.com/how-to-install-windows-xp-over-windows-7-in-a-dual-boot/

2) Do you want to replace Win7 with XP.

Here's a web site which covers that :-

Format windows 7 and install windows xp


Use the XP install disk to format the drive during the install process with NTFS file system. Then install XP.

If the disk does not allow you to go backwards to an older OS you need to format the existing drive in your laptop with external software on a usb or cd rom, etc. Then do the xp install. Before doing the deed make sure you download the drivers needed for the XP install on a usb stick or something.

Hi,

The set up says it couldn't find the harddisk because you need to slip stream the harddisk driver into the windows xp cd where as in the normal setup cd's it is not present.

You need to download the SATA AHCI controller driver and slip stream it in to your windows xp setup ..

You can find the information in detail on how to slip stream from the website below:

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

I hope the information helped you

Previous use window xp recently have one note book window 7 our printer is not working window 7 processing the method of driver installed


My dear friend, observe computer peripherals compatibility. If you are telling that your printer is working on windows xp that means the printer designed only for windows xp but some printer right now is supported with different operating system. Anyway download a printer driver for windows 7 if it has and install the software first and plug the printer after installing the software. Have a nice day!

My LG X200 works with Windows 7. Can I install XP on this model. And if I install XP, the drivers available for windows 7 will work on XP?


The drivers for Wndows 7 most likely will not work on Windows XP.
If this laptop came installed with Windows 7 it may not have Windows XP drivers.
Before you install Windows XP check the LG WEB site for Windows XP drivers for your model laptop. If there isn't any XP drivers then I suggest you stick with Windows 7.

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

Audio driver for windows 7 ultimate


Your Driver might be incompatible or incorrect driver. Check carefully, if you install it incorrectly, your PC could be at risk.

Since Windows 7 is a new operating System. Most Manufactures don't have the drivers of it. Talk to your Computer Adminstrator or contact one.

Windows 7 has recently released, so it's not recommend to upgrade it. You can rollback to Vista or XP with the System Restore if you wish.

You can also contact or email Microsoft for more info.
