HI,

when you boot up the Laptop, press either F2 or Del, this will get you into the cmos settings, navigate to advanced cmos settings and normally at the top line is the boot sequence which will say HDD, press either up/down keys or + - keys to change to CDROM as first boot device, save settings and exit.

Insert you cd rom before the system boots into windows and the option prompting you to press enter to boot from cd will appear for 30seconds.

Unable to Downgrade vista OS to windows 2003 or XP(CQ-LAPTOP)


During the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN THE BIOS then :-
Go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the SATA driver for your model laptop. This driver is used to install the 3rd party driver
during the Windows installation (during the Windows installation you need to press F6 to allow you to install the SATA driver).

Finding Sata drivers


Ok, let me see if I've got this right, you want to replace vista? but you need the SATA drivers? To do a dual boot, you usually need to install XP first, and Vista second. As for the SATA drivers, if the XP cd boots up and allows you to edit the partitions, then the SATA driver is already integrated. And here is the download page for your laptop:

HP DV2700Tx Windows vista to XP Downgrade


you will need to download the SATA controller driver from
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-56416-1&lc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&os=228&product=3641490&dlc=en
without that your laptop won't recognize your hard drive there
are 2 ways to solve this:
first one you'll need an external floppy drive save the sata driver on a floppy put your xp disk in and start the install at the very begining xp prompts you press F6 to install sata driver press that and it'll get the driver from the external floppy drive.
second way is to create an xp disk with the sata driver to achieve that you'll need a deployment software i use nlite

ACER Aspire 5720


Hi All,

We are a workshop in Spain & I have had several problems with "Down grading" to XP. There is essentially one problem which causes an issue with the XP installation & that is if the the BIOS has a "Fixed" sata configuration. By that I mean you cannot change it to some sort of IDE or P-ATA (Symantics). Our current problems are with an Acer 5720 & an HP Pavilion DV9700. The Acer solution is exactly as "kraken3000" had mentioned before:
1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

DONOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot. This setting must be kept untill you "Upgrade" (If ever) to Vista. The HP is another story...

Visit the Acer Panam site & download & install the XP drivers & your good to go...

I hope that this was of help...& good luck folks
