You can go to your BIOS system set up and select the right sequence if you prefere HDD first then CD-ROM,

depends on your manufacturers settitng pls press F2 or F10 immediately upon start up then you will be prompted to enter password, ( if you know ) then scroll down until you see the booting sequence, dont forget to save this and end your system set up

goodluck

Hello, ive just bought a brand new motherboard (GS7610 ULTRA) and i have installed it into my case with all my components and when i go to start my computer up, it goes pasted the boot menu and then i get...


Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

Plugged it in and the computer states there was a problem and will not recognize it have XP operating system Firelite 250 gb 5400 rpm


If the hard drive that you're installing has an operating system on it already, like Windows XP, you can't just move the hard drive from machine to machine if the computers are different. When you install Windows (or most other operating systems), the operating system customizes itself to the hardware in the computer. If you pull that hard drive out and install it on a completely different computer, Windows will most likely fail to boot and give errors and blue screens. This is normal. You will need to reinstall or repair the operating system if you want to keep the new hard drive in the machine.

My HP Pavillion DV9000 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


When I tried first installing windows XP on my laptop, I had the problem that I already had Windows Vista on it, but wanted to delete it and install Windows XP. Whenever I tried installing XP, it kept telling me that there was no hard drive. I searched through all the forums on this topic and finally found out that I had to change a setting in the BIOS called native SATA driver support.

My assumption is that once they changed the mainboard on your PC, the bios settings changed as well. Try searching through your BIOS, it might have a similar setting that you might need to change.

Windows xp keeps failing


check the bios and see what the boot order is for the boot devices. Hard disk 0 should be listed after the cdrom drive. this problem you are having might occur if the hard drive is down the list in the boot order, and not checked as being a valid boot device.

INSTALLATION


Hello,

I don't think this is possible. Still we can work on this.

Even I am verymuch Intersted with these kind of issues. I haven't tried installing XP on USB flash drive. But I installed the XP on USB harddrive and it worked.

We can try this with your co-operation. To boot with the USB devices, first your computer or laptop should have the option to boot with the USB devices. You can check in BIOS, under BOOT order for this option.

If USB boot option is not there, then you cannot boot with the Flash drive, not only flash drive all USB devices. They will work only after booting into Windows.

Comming to installation procedure, installtion is same as installing the XP on harddrive. While installing the XP, at partition page, you can see the USB flash drive, select it and continue the installtion.

If your computer has the option to boot with the USB devices and if the flash drive won't boot into Windows after installtion, then we have to set Flash drive as Active partition from Disk Management, and then we can try. In Disk Management, right click on the USB drive and select set active partition. If it won't allow to set the USb flash drive as active, then it is not possible to install XP on flash drive.

Even I googled everywhere on how to do this, but not information.
Try that and let me know the status. But I am sure, it is possible on Pocket drivers or USB harddrives.
