Question about Everex StepNote SA2050T Notebook

1 Answer

Cannot install windows XP...

I bought a used Everex SA2050T. It had windows 2000 pro in it when I bought it. Because the guy I bought it from prefers 2000. I wiped the hard drive in order to install XP. When I attempted to install XP the blue screen of death appear. Apparently my copy of XP does not have drivers for some of the hardware. So I downloaded the needed drivers from Everex.com. I put the drivers on a cdr discs. But when I am installing XP there is only one option of loading the drivers. When I use that option it loads then it looks for another floppy disks. But because its not a floppy there's no other disks to put in. Do you have any idea on how to go around this problem.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?

If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!
Mike

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280

The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.

New battery needed!

The Everex SA2052T uses the same battery as a Averatec 2260 (2200 series) laptop. I purchase one from provantage.com this week. The battery is made by BTI and the model number is AV2200. It works perfectly.
