You can run XP on the Armada 1500c but with a lot less satisfaction than 98SE. There is really no advantage.

Wihndows XP is too much for that laptop, try Windows 98SE; works like a charm on my Toshiba Satellite 225! I only have 96 Megs of ram on that thing.

It will tell you if there is any chance in hades of installing XP but if you only 'meeting' and not exceeding, you will be disappointed.

If (as I suspect) you are running 98se, you might be better off reinstalling.
I am not enamored of the differences.

Windows 98 se, xp not installed to compaq armada E500 pc notebook


First, format the hard drive and make sure it is in FAT or FAT32 for Windows 98 install. Then do your partitioning etc and should work. If it doesn't, it is possibly a hardware fault.

Here is the site for the drivers for the laptop :

Armada M700 & Linux XP 2006


Yes I used the latest version of Ubuntu Linux.

Get it here
Ubuntu 8.10

You will need to install NDIS in linux after the install to use the windows drivers for your wireless card if you have one. Sometimes older wireless cards will work but most of the time you need the NDIS to use the windows disk that comes with your wireless device(if you are using one) Your hard wired ethernet port should be detected automatically as well as all your other drivers(since the machine is old)
Good luck..if you need any more help I will be around. No other compatibility issues exist, and it will run a lot faster than XP. I would suggest 512MB of Ram but 256 will handle it fine.

Controller Driver Issue on Armada M700


I am running a Armada M700 with a Hitachi HTS541060G9AT00 60GB Hard Drive - Ultra ATA-100, 5400 RPM, 8MB. The driver that is loaded in mine is on both primary and secondary is atapi.sys. This driver is also installed on the Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller, along with intelide.sys. The main difference is I am running Window XP Pro SP2. But I believe that they should use the same driver.
Hope this helps.

You need to download and install the proper drivers from Compaq (now HP). Go to http://www.compaq.com and do the following:

Click "Get Support" at the top.

Enter "armada m700" in the "Enter a product number" box.

Click the little submit button that looks like ">>".

Click "Download drivers and software".

Click one of the "Windows XP" links. Doesn't matter which one.

Scroll down and click the "Download" buttons that correspond to each driver you want to download.

Install the drivers you downloaded.
