Is it the Operating System you are trying to install?
or the service pack 2 for WinXP?

If it is the OS click on the ASK ME tab under my User ID and leave your contact address, I will send out the 3CD set for compaq Armada/Presario to load the OS and Applications.

If it is the Service pack, don't install SP2, Install SP3
The release candidate 2 is in English, German, or Japanese.
Down at the bootom of this link's page, select the language you want and download approx 315mb

Good night, i formated the hdd of my compaq armada 1500c, next i install win xp sp2, every time that the computer boot, i see a mesage that says system date and time not set. how can i restore the bios...


There is not a bios partition, as the bios is a firmware on the mother board. You need to press the key specified early during boot up, before the system seeks the hd for load.

Check MS minimums here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314865

It will tell you if there is any chance in hades of installing XP but if you only 'meeting' and not exceeding, you will be disappointed.

If (as I suspect) you are running 98se, you might be better off reinstalling.
I am not enamored of the differences.

HELP


Are you trying to upgrade 95 to 98SE or just new install of 98.
What you may have to do is
  1. insert win 98 boot floppy
  2. boot with cdrom support
  3. at the prompt change to cd drive E:\ (press enter)
  4. at the E:\ prompt type cd Win98 (press enter)
  5. at the E:\Win98 prompt type format C:\ (press enter)
  6. confirm all data will be erased
  7. reboot with floppy in and at the a:\ prompt run FDISK to see if the full size of the hard drive is available. (option 4)
  8. If everything is normal exit fdisk reboot with floppy, choose with cdrom support, type in the cdrom drive letter (usually e) and cd Win98(change directory Win98)
  9. at the win98 prompt type setup (press enter) and follow the prompts.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2


I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51521-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3369431&os=228&lang=en extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps

Issues with my compaq armada


This means that your hard drive has failed or has become disconnected and it cannot find the boot.ini to enable Windows to start. When you say youv'e tried all discs which disks do you mean?
