If you will be using a floppy disk you will need around 4-5 of it. better get a thumb drive. or you can save it directly to your computer. here's the link: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1845552&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1845551&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

You would need about 1000 floppies to store Windows XP. You need to go into the BIOS and select the primary boot drive to optical(cd). Then restart with the windows disc in the CD drive. Floppies haven't been needed to install the OS since Windows 98.

You can slipstream the storage controller drivers from the floppy disk image you download from Acer's web site into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite.
You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.

You can download nLite at the following link:
http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.

The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:
http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.

The hard disk on your laptop is a SATA, which a generic XP install disk doesn't support. You will either have to create a custom XP install disk by adding to it the required drivers as explained here
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Install-Windows-XP-On-SATA-Without-a-Floppy-F6-47807.shtml
or you could load them to an USB stick and when prompted by the install to load external drivers from A you could reassign the A to the USB and load them from there.

Nec versa want to downgrade from vista to xp but booting from xp cd it does not detect harddrive, why? what can I do about it?


Hi,

Sometimes booting from XP disk wont detect your hard disk,the problem is because the IDE driver which is needed for the identification of the hard disks are not at all avaible with the XP CD. So u have to download the corresponding IDE driver for your hard disk and then u can install that from the floppy drive during the installation . I think on installation XP set up will ask for a driver installation (third party installation). U can do this by using a floppy disk . If the floppy drive is not all available in your laptop then u can use softwares which can mix the IDE driver along with the XP set up U have. A lot of softwares are available for download for this purpose

Thank u and please rate my solution

Halt error 4 when installing XP on Vista


XP does not have a SATA driver on the installation CD, you need to either download a SATA driver and when XP ask at the start of the installation you need to provide a SATA driver for the hard disk, press F6, the driver is usually installed from the floppy disk. Alternately if your BIOS will allow you to set up the SATA drive as a ATA drive, do so and after XP is installed then install the SATA driver.

Hi, your Windows XP install CD doesn't have SATA drivers for the hard drive included, so it's not able to address your hard drive. You can't disable SATA in the BIOS to make it work since your hard drive is still SATA. You'll need to get a 3.5" floppy disk and drive if your laptop doesn't have one. They make external 3.5" USB floppy drives that will work.

1. download the SATA drivers for your laptop (iastor.sys and inf)
2. copy the drivers to your floppy disk (about 6-7 files)
3. plug the floppy drive into your laptop
4. boot to the Windows XP CD
5. as soon as the installation starts, it asks you to "Press F6 to specify RAID or controller drivers" - Press F6 now
6. When setup asks for it, point it to the floppy drive
7. Installation will continue and find your SATA hard drive

Ta-da! Rock on with your bad self.

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Trouble installing driver in Windows 98 without original install disks


I would look for the whole driver package from http://www.driverguide.com If you have the files downloaded why are they on the floppy? You can point the installation to any location, including the hard drive of the laptop. Driver guide does require a (free) membership to download, but it's a great site.
