Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

3 Answers

Please Help.. I am S.Indra Kumar, Chartered Accountant, practising in Calicut India. I bought a Compaq Presario Notebook last week, with the model number, CPU and Memory details as specified below, from one of your authorised dealers called Focuz Computers in Calicut. At the time of purchase, I had specifically asked for a laptop with Microsoft-XP as it's operating System. The aforesaid dealers referred to me about Compaq Presario C3780TU model with VistaHome as it's operating system. However they guranteed to change the operating system from VistaHome to Microsoft-XP within 2-hours time after purchase, which they earlier mentioned as being possible, and I finalised the deal. I bought the Compaq Notebook of said model upon the dealers's assurance. Now, after the purchase, they have caused 6-7 days delay to my requirement of changing to Microsoft-XP operating system. They are also forcing me to accept the product with it's original operating system VistaHome, since the dealers say it is impossible for them to change now. The above mentioned problem has affected my work greatly. I am looking forward to your expert advice regarding this matter and I would be really grateful to you if u can suggest a solution for my problem. Thanking you, CA.S.Indra Kumar FCA

Indra Kumar, its a very common problem nowadays. Because the lap comming with Vista have SATA interface for HDD wich is not detectable by windows XP. But using some trick we can install XP on it.

1. If your lap has SATA option in BIOS setup just make it disabled, then you can install windows XP easily. (Many users have tried and got success my this solution, see my solutions for details)

2. If you can add a floppy disk drive to your lap (not USB floppy drive it will not work) then download the ATCHI driver for your SATA interface and press F6 during XP installation (it will be display to press F6 for RAID driver by XP setup), then it will read from floppy and your setup will proceeded.

3. If you can split the RAID driver to your XP Setup it will then install easily.

Note: I have done same process i.e. 3 for my lap and i have both Vista and XP on my Pavilion dv6000 lap-top.

Thanks
Iqbal
