Question about Microsoft Windows Xp Home Edition Sp2 English Mlp Na Only Additional License (n0901086) for PC
So, im tired of vista, like everybody else. So i wanted to install xp.
So no problems at all, i start to reinstall XP on my laptop like ive done hundreds of times on my stationary, but then...
Well the thing is, it Says, "cant find harddisk", and then all the stuff about remember to turn on your harddisk and stuff.
You know how to avoid this ?
I mean im pretty sure (like 100% sure) that there is no problem with my harddisk on my laptop, and i really dont understand why i cant make it work. Hope you will be able to help me ^^
Oh and by the way, i tried to disable my Harddisk driver in BIOS like somebosdy else suggested, but i cant seem to find it in there, really dont know whats wrong ^^
First, have you deleted Vista, or are you trying a dual boot?
Second, you do not have to disable your HDD or you cannot do the installation!
For a step by step procedure to install XP on a Vista computer (dual boot), please check here:
I do not recommend removing Vista completely,if that is what your laptop/PC came with, as most components and drivers installed will be Vista specific. If you need to have XP, make sure you have all the drivers for XP first.
