Remember.... the OS compatibility is only lower to upper...not upper to lower....i.e.....
Win7 is higher than WinXP....so u cant run / install WinXP using Win7...but u can do the otherway round....i.e...1st u can install WinXP in C: drive, then let the machine start, once u get to WinXp dekstop then install Win7 in D: drive...(it's called Dual Boot)...so on the boot screen u can choose which OS to work with when the PC starts....
all the best
pls revert back...and kindly leave a rating and feedback to this solution...it will help me become a "Guru" here on Fixya....

I bought a LENOVO B 450 laptop. The dealer installed WIN 7. But in WIN 7 Tally 7.2 will not work. So I wish to install WIN XP. But when I tried to install WIN XP there shows an error message and a blue...


Please note that installing an operating system on an OEM machine OTHER than what was factory-installed on it may void either phone support for the customized OS or the warranty itself.

Lenovo Machines, like most new OEM models are set, by default to run their hard drives in AHCI mode for better performance & power management. Go to the computer's system setup F1 or Del while the computer is starting up to locate the Power, Hard drive or System configuration (Lenovo computers have different System Setup formats for each model so you'll have to navigate around a bit since they may be labeled differently).

Once you find it, you have to change the setting from AHCI to IDE or Compatibility, whichever option is available (once again, each model has a different format & labeling convention). Save the changes & exit the setup & retry the installation. Should work.

Hello I am trying to find a Canon iP 1000 driver but can't seem to find it online. Also, if and when I get it... will it run on Windows 7 OS?


There Is NO driver for Win 7. It is just that simple. No driver has been nor I suspect ever will be written for Win 7.

The best shot is to try installing, a Win XP driver, and installing and then running as Admin, & set "Compatibility Mode for XP SP2" this may work, and enable basic functions?

I have Windows 7 and it my daughters hello kitty photo booth (digital camera kit) said that it would only support up to VISTA which I had until I upgraded.....how can I get this to work on my Windows 7?


Have you tried installing it on Win 7? Most software made for vista will run fine on Win 7. Otherwise you can try running the program in "XP Compatability Mode". You can do this by right clicking the installation file (or if installed already, the shortcut you use to open the program) and click properties. Then click the Compatability tab and check "run this program in compatability mode for:" and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
Good Luck

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.


Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

NOTE**
"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

Since i changed from windows XP to Windows7 i can't connect my qtek to my pc. can anyone help me? thank you!


It is simply Win 7, it will NOT play well with what it considers "OLD" stuff. You could try Compatability Mode for XP SP2, and running the installer and the program as administrator. Right click on installer & after, the programs .exe and set compatability as related, then run as administrator thats the only shot you got sorry. Unless of course the manufacturer has a driver for Win 7?
