How can i install windows xp when screen showing blue screen


Check whether you have installed the SATA Hard Drive driver using a Floppy disk. Some Computers needs SATA Hard Drive Driver before installing the Windows XP. Try using Windows XP SP2 disk.

Can not setup windows xp sp3 sata on hp compaq presario v6700


Ok, the problem here is that the Windows XP CD that you have does not have the proper SATA drivers on it already. There are two ways to get around this:

1. Locate the drivers for your SATA controller from HP's website. Copy them to a floppy disk (old 3.5" style) and install the drivers during the installation. When booting up the XP CD, one of the first things it says is "Press F6 to install 3rd party RAID or device drivers". This is where you would press F6. During the install, it would ask you to provide the hard drive controller drivers. Windows XP only allows for these drivers to be installed from a floppy disk, so if your computer doesn't already have a floppy drive, you'll need to get an external USB drive. Once you give XP setup the correct drivers, it can find the hard drive and continue with the installation.

2. Create a custom XP installation CD with the new drivers on it. On another computer with internet, CD-burning capability, and a lot of time and effort, you can slipstream the SATA drivers into the XP CD that you have now. This is not a process for novice users, and can be very time consuming. For a single installation, you're better off with the floppy drive option.

In order to find the correct SATA drivers for your computer, we'll need to know the exact make and model of your computer. The Presario v6700 is a series, there are many models inside of that series. They most likely use the same driver for SATA, but it'd be nice to know exactly which model you have. THis should be printed on the bottom of the laptop.

Use windows 98 to make a rescue disk (3 1/2 floppy)
use that emergency disk to repartition and format the hard drive. You can probley use fat16.

Compaq Presario 5102US downloading Windows 98


If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.

Cant perform a quick restore.


what size is yous hard drive and is the windows installing it'self properly and the other problem is have you got all the motherboard drivers if not then the system will become unstable and the hard drive will need to be format back to manufactures default as the files thet were on drive are burrired deep and the only way to get rid of problems is using a program called kill disk then using your win 98 start-up floppy and fdisk the hard drive then partition then format the hard drive then install windows on then all other files for motherboard and graphics and other devices. it should take you about 1 day to get back on line with pc up and running. hope this helps
