Question about Fujitsu LifeBook AH530 NoteBook
With the description you have for your computer's BIOS, this only means dead end. Let me explain further.
First of all, let us understand what the error means.
According to Microsoft Article ID: 324103, in relation to your issue, it is a Device Driver Issue.
Knowing this information, let us then consider the specification of your computer to what it is designed for. As it is an i3 platform, it was designed for a much complex tasks for which Windows 7 should deliver.
Your computer is designed for Windows 7 64bit version only. Refer to this LINK. Logically, Windows XP 64bit can possibly be installed, but you might have difficulty finding proper/compatible drivers for the components of your computer. This results to a computer that most of its functions are disabled due to incompatibility.
Lastly, the BIOS. As you have described it, you cannot find the option of changing the type of hard drive to IDE, it is because the motherboard caters only for SATA hard drives as the BIOS was designed for what the motherboard is limited for.
I understand for a lot of reasons why we go back to Windows XP 32bit. Simply because it is a great Operating System. It also caters most of our programs that we were used to that might not be compatible with Windows 7. Windows XP 64bit, as well, does not cater to most of the programs we are used to.
I would gladly advice for you to use your computer for what it is designed for, otherwise, you may want to pick another laptop with equal specifications that still caters Windows XP.
I hope this advice works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!
