Step 1 - Start your PC and place your Windows XP CD in your CD/DVD-ROM drive. Your PC should automatically detect the CD and you will get a message saying "Press any key to boot from CD". Soon as computer starts booting from the CD your will get the following screen:
i can't installation windows xp. any solution? - winxp1.jpg
Step 2 - At this stage it will ask you to press F6 if you want to install a third party Raid or SCSI driver. If you are using a an IDE Hard Drive then you do not need to press F6. If you are using a SCSI or SATA Hard drive then you must press F6 otherwise Windows will not detect your Hard Drive during the installation. Please make sure you have the Raid drivers on a floppy disk. Normally the drivers are supplied on a CD which you can copy to a floppy disk ready to be installed. If you are not sure how to do this then please read your motherboard manuals for more information.
Step 3 - Press S to Specify that you want to install additional device.
Step 4 - You will be asked to insert the floppy disk with the Raid or SCSI drivers. Press enter after you have inserted thi can't installation windows xp. any solution? - winxp4.jpg /> winxp4.jpg

    Step 7 - You will be presented with the End User
    Licensing Agreement. Press F8 to accept and continue

    Step 8 - This step is very
    important. Here we will create the partition where Windows will be
    installed. If you have a brand new unformatted drive you will get a
    screen similar to below. In our case the drive size is 8190MB. We can
    choose to install Windows in this drive without creating a partition,
    hence use the entire size of the drive. If you wish to do this you can
    just press enter and Windows will automatically partition and format the
    drive as one large drive.

    However for this demonstration I will create two
    partition. The first partition will be 6000MB (C: drive) and second
    partition would be 2180MB (E: drive). By creating two partition we can
    have one which stores Windows and Applications and the other which
    stores our data. So in the future if anything goes wrong with our
    Windows install such as virus or spyware we can re-install Windows on C:
    drive and our data on E: drive will not be touched. Please note you can
    choose whatever size partition your like. For example if you have 500GB
    hard drive you can have two partition of 250GB each.

    Press C to create a partition.

    Step 8 - Windows will show the
    total size of the hard drive and ask you how much you want to allocate
    for the partition you are about to create. I will choose 6000MB. You
    will then get the screen below. Notice it shows C: Partition 1 followed
    by the size 6000 MB. This indicates the partition has been created. We
    still have an unpartitioned space of 2189MB. Next highlight the
    unpartitioned space by pressing down the arrow key. Then press C to
    create another partition. You will see the total space available for the
    new partition. Just choose all the space left over, in our case 2180MB.

    Step 9 - Now you will see both
    partition listed. Partition 1 (C: Drive) 6000MB and Partition 2 (E:
    Drive) 2180MB. You will also have 8MB of unpartitioned space. Don't
    worry about that. Just leave it how its is. Windows normally has some
    unpartitioned space. You might wonder what happened to D: drive. Windows
    has automatically allocated D: drive to CD/DVD-ROM.

    Select Partition 1 (C: Drive) and press Enter.

    Step 10 - Choose format the
    partition using NTFS file system.This is the recommended file system.
    If the hard drive has been formatted before then you can choose quick
    NTFS format. We chose NTFS because it offers many security features,
    supports larger drive size, and bigger size files.

    Windows will now start formatting drive C: and
    start copying setup files as shown on the two images below :

    CIROC TECH SUPPORT May 08, 2010

    Step 11 - After the setup has completed copying the
    files the computer will restart. Leave the XP CD in the drive but this
    time DO NOT press any key when the message "Press any key to boot from
    CD" is displayed. In few seconds setup will continue. Windows XP
    Setup wizard will guide you through the setup process of gathering
    information about your computer.

    Step 12 - Choose your region and language.

    Step 13 - Type in your name and

    Step 14. Enter your product key.

    Step 15 - Name the computer, and enter an
    Administrator password. Don't forget to write down your Administrator

    Step 16 - Enter the correct date, time and
    choose your time zone.

    Step 17 - For the network setting choose
    typical and press next.

    Step 18 - Choose workgroup or domain name.
    If you are not a member of a domain then leave the default settings and
    press next. Windows will restart again and adjust the display.

    CIROC TECH SUPPORT May 08, 2010

    Step 19 - Finally Windows will start and present you
    with a Welcome screen. Click next to continue.

    Step 20 - Choose 'help protect my PC by
    turning on automatic updates now'
    and press next.

    Step 21 - Will this computer connect to the
    internet directly, or through a network? If you are connected to a
    router or LAN then choose: 'Yes, this computer will connect through a
    local area network or home network'
    . If you have dial up modem
    choose: 'No, this computer will connect directly to the internet'.
    Then click Next.

    Step 22 - Ready to activate Windows? Choose yes
    if you wish to active Windows over the internet now. Choose no if you
    want to activate Windows at a later stage.

    Step 23 - Add users that will sign on to this
    computer and click next.

    Step 24 - You will get a Thank you
    screen to confirm setup is complete. Click finish.

    Step 25. Log in, to your PC for the first

    Step 26 - You now need to check the device
    manager to confirm that all the drivers has been loaded or if there
    are any conflicts. From the start menu select Start ->
    Settings -> Control Panel
    . Click on the System
    icon and then from the System Properties window select
    the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager.

    If there are any yellow exclamation mark "!"
    next to any of the listed device, it means that no drivers or
    incorrect drivers has been loaded for that device. In our case we have a
    Video Controller (VGA card) which has no drivers installed.

    Your hardware should come with manufacturer
    supplied drivers. You need to install these drivers using the
    automatic setup program provided by the manufacturer or you need to
    manually install these drivers. If you do not have the drivers, check
    the manufacturers website to download them.

    To install a driver manually use the following

    (a) From the device manager
    double click on the device containing the exclamation mark.

    (b) This would open a device
    properties window.

    (c) Click on the Driver

    (d) Click Update Driver button.
    The Wizard for updating device driver pops up as shown below:

    You now get two options. The first option
    provides an automatic search for the required driver. The second
    option allows you to specify the location of the driver. If you don't
    know the location of the driver choose the automatic search which
    would find the required driver from the manufacturer supplied CD or
    Floppy disk. Windows would install the required driver and may ask you
    to restart the system for the changes to take affect. Use this
    procedure to install drivers for all the devices that contain an
    exclamation mark. Windows is completely setup when there are no more
    exclamation marks in the device manager.

How to install window XP

This procedure demonstrates how to install Windows XP Professional. The procedure to install Windows XP home edition is very similar to the professional edition. Since Windows XP Pro is more advanced operating system, it will be used to demonstrate the installation procedure.
The best way install Windows XP is to do a clean install. It is not difficult to perform a clean installation. Before you perform the installation I recommend that you check to ensure that your hardware is supported by XP. If your hardware is not on the compatibility list you can check your hardware manufactures website to download the drivers for Windows XP. Save all the necessary drivers onto floppy disks or CD before you start the installation.

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.

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

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.

Windows xp is not instaling in my system


In order to have a multi-boot system (i.e. 2 or more operating systems installed, so you can choose the one you want to use each time), you must have Windows XP installed FIRST, and then install Windows 7.

If it's ONLY Windows XP that you need, repartition the hard drive during the first setup step of Windows XP installation process.

Good luck,

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
