Dell :: Installing Of Windows Vista After Installing Woindows Xp On Studio 1435 Laptop

Jan 13, 2009

I have brought a new dell studio 1435 laptop and they provided me with default windows vista home premiun OS.

I have installed windows XP professional OS after changing the BIOS settings for onboard devices (In BIOS:

Onboard Devices -> Flash Cache Module -> Set Off
Onboard Devices -> SATA Operation -> Set ATA)

Can i will be able to install the windows vista OS after installing windows Xp with the same BIOS settings for onboard devices (In BIOS:
Onboard Devices -> Flash Cache Module -> Set Off

Acer :: Installing XP On A Vista Laptop ( 5100)

Oct 19, 2008

My acer 5100 came with vista and I'm trying to do a fresh install of XP SP2 on it.

After I get past the partitioning part in the install process, it goes on to the "installing windows" stage and shuts off midway. This has been happening a few times and after some googling, reckoned it has to do with the SATA hard drive.

I tried to get on Bios and change the SATA to IDE but I didnt find any modifiable property for the hard drive on BIOS

I'm wondering some of you folks who installed XP on a vista laptop got it done.

Dell :: Bluescreen When Installing Vista X64 On Studio 17

Oct 18, 2008

I have a Studio 17 with Vista Home Premium preinstalled. Im trying to install Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and when I boot from the DVD, it says Loading files, than at the end of that it shows me to screen with the Microsoft bar like its going to load windows, but then I immediately get a blue screen with the error irql not equal to or something like that.

I tried disable the flash cache in the BIOS but it still gets the blue screen as soon as it trys to enter the setup screen.

My BIOS is set to ACHI and I have not changed that.

I wanted to try out the 64 bit Vista and still have my 32 bit on it in case I run into some apps that wont run in 64 bit.

anyone have any idea what I need to do? I have a seperate logical partition that I made for the Vista 64 bit. So I have 2 partitions, a C: partition which has the Vista Home on it that came with this laptop and I was hoping to install the 64 bit onto the D: partition but Im getting the blue screen.

Do I need to do anything with the ACHI setting? I have 4 gigs of ram and would like to use it.

Sony :: Installing 32-bit Windows 7 On Z720D (originally 64-bit Vista)

Aug 1, 2009

I purchased a ready-to-go VGN-Z720D from Sony, and their bloatware is, well, horrible, so i figured that would be as good a time as any to do a clean install AND run Windows 7 RC1.

Problem is, most of the utilities/programs listed earlier in the "Windows 7 on Vaio Z" thread are not available from in 32-bit flavor for this particular model.

I've tried to use 32-bit drivers from the Z690 on my Z720, but Sony does enforce model restrictions within its package

HP/Compaq :: Installing Vista After Dead HD

Aug 7, 2009

I have an HP dv5t which I purchased new last October. A couple of weeks ago, my HD got fried (think it overheated). HP sent me a new HD, and I had a technician install it for me. I never made recovery disks as instructed by HP (was gonna get around to it; who knew the HD would die in 9 mos?). The tech ended up installing Vista Ultimate Lite instead, which I thought was okay b/c there's no bloatware that way. However, I miss a lot of the elements of the Aero environment, particularly Windows DVD Maker.

I have two questions:

1. Can I get backup CDs from HP to reinstall Vista Home Premium (which is what my lappie was shipped with)? Would doing so reinstall the bloatware?

2. Is there a way to tweak Vista Ultimate Lite so I can have the standard GUI w/o putting bloatware back in my system? The environment in Ultimate Lite reminds me too much of XP (clunky-looking windows, fonts are too large, etc).

Sony :: Installing Vista On New Hdd From Recovery Disks

Feb 13, 2009

Been nosing around the forum to try to find the answer before asking, but i really couldn't find any, so here goes!

I just got a new 7200rpm 320gb from WD to replace my old drive . I replaced it, boot the laptop (VGN-CR31S) as usual,

and put the first recovery DVD in the tray. Unfortunately, when it gets to the options menu,

I can't get it to install, it keeps asking for the right volume or cd/dvd. I thought the recovery dvds would be able to install everything from scratch ..

Sony :: Installing Vista Ultimate 64bit On Z-690

Apr 17, 2009

Just received my new CTO Z-690 today with vista home premium (64 bit), and to save a little on cost, bought an OEM Vista Ult 64bit separately.

Now I'd like to install vista ultimate instead and i just want to make sure i have the steps right.

1. backup/create recovery disks just in case something messes up.

2. install vista ultimate, wiping out everything

3. install drivers from sony's website

lastly, 2 questions
1) since my current drivers are for vista home premium, i will have to download new ones regardless right?

2) is there anything else that i should be doing?

Sony :: Installing Win 7 On Z With XP Business Using Vista Upgrade DVD

Apr 7, 2010

I have an Upgrade dvd Vista business to Win 7 that I received for my z790. Finally got around to install Win 7 and seems like I will need to install Vista first to be able to use the upgrade DVD. Any workaround?

My secondary objective is to install new SSD.The way I see it now:

1. Ghost XP on SSD

2. Install Vista on SSD

3. Install Win 7 on SSD

Is there an easier way to do it? Any more pitfalls to avaoid? Thanks!

the only Win 7 key that I have is the upgrade Vista to Win 7. Am I correct that retail/all versions install Win 7 disk will not let me use this key?

HP/Compaq :: Clean Installing Vista Hacked By Pca

Jan 6, 2009

I just got one of these the other day and in order to remove all the bloatware, update to SP1 and more, I went and installed a clean Vista, even backing and rhacked by pcaestoring the activation (as the thread about using ABR says).

After this, I download every single driver from the HP support page and went through installing them (of couse, the latest version of each and even other bloatware such as help files, wireless assistant, etc.). The thing is that, after everything was installed, I was still having a "yellow unknow device" in the device manager. After much thinking, I guessed that what was missing were the QuickLaunch buttons, because none of the QuickPlay buttons in the keyboard work, neither the "eject" button for the optical drive. But that QuickLaunch wasn't listed in HP drivers. All there was is a Quick Launch Security Update, but not the actual drivers!

After much searching without hope, I tried one last thing: to let windows install those drivers by searching in Windows Update. Amazingly it worked and they were installed as, efectively, the Quick Launch Buttons! But the problem is that those still don't work! The volume mute, slider, treble and bass work (but make no sound when touched, even though they are activated in the Control Panel - Quick Touch), but the QuickPlay, DVD, TV and Eject still don't work!

Also note that before even trying to use Windows Update, I went and installed every single driver (again, not drivers that were outdated to the ones in HP support and I already installed) in the SwSetup folder: still no luck. For what I read in a thread, there should be (?) a QLB folder that would have the Quick Launch Buttons? Well... I didn't had it...................

Apple :: Macboook - Installing Vista On Bootcamp

Jan 2, 2009

I am installing the oem version of vista home premium 64 bit on my brand new macbook pro. I use bootcamp assistant to create a 60gig partition, insert my vista cd to start the install, use advanced options to let vista convert format to ntfs.

I followed the steps/guide exactly and everything goes fine. The system goes through installation but when does its first reboot and comes back to the install screen it errors on the step that says completing installation. It remains on the completing installation step for a few minutes and then an error comes up the says "Windows cannot configure one or more system components. To install windows restart the computer and restart the installation."

Acer :: Installing Vista 64 Biton Aspire 7530 :S

Mar 24, 2009

i have a new laptop i brought about 2 months ago called "Acer Aspire 7530". It has 4 gig ram, and a 2.1 GHz processor.

I want to install Vista 64 bit on it, as the original comes with a 32 bit version which I do not want.

Anyways, when i boot from my vista CD it goes into the installation menu. But after i choose the language, it says "No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contain the correct drivers, and then click ok"

I got all my laptop drivers and put them onto a USB stick and tried that, but it did not work.

Apple :: Macbook Pro 15 - Installing Vista X64 In Boot Camp

Jan 7, 2009

I have a new unibody Macbook Pro 15 inch and after playing with it for a month and having XP in parallel only, I decided to install Vista Ultimate through boot camp so that I'll be able to play games on my macbook. Now here's the problem...

After I load up the boot camp assistant and I proceed to install Windows, the laptop restarts and goes to the Vista installation screen. I set up the region codes and language that I prefer and I hit next. Now, I finally hit the big "Install Now" button in the middle. After clicking on this button though, I hit my error:

Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing.

My dvd drive is the Matsua DVD-R UJ-868
My IDE controller is the 82801BA Ultra ATA Storage Controller 244B

Also, no, I do not have an external DVD drive and so loading up another CD with the drivers is out of the question.

Acer :: 5570-4011- Installing Winxp Instead Of Vista Home

Dec 27, 2007

I have acer 5570-4011 laptop with vista home (and ubuntu on a separate partition). I rebooted from cd, using winxp pe, deleted all files on vista partition, except those in the root, and started to install win xp pro. After installation files were copied to the hard drive, I restarted without cd and when setup continued, it gave me "file ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. Error code is 7".

On MS support site they say about ACPI or memory problems and suggest to press F7 during that step to skip ACPI check, but it doesnt help in my case.

How can I install WinXP ?

Dell :: Studio 14 (1435)

Sep 29, 2008

I ran across this posting from back in May on Take a look- [url]

The 1535 and 1735 are the Studio 15 and 17 that are currently available. The literature shown in the article even has a note about the 1435 that says "delayed until October". Several reviews of the Studio 15/17 have mentioned that a 13.3" or 14.1" model would fit the range very well. It'll be interesting to see where Dell goes with it....

Dell :: Did I Just Broke My Laptop When Installing RAM Wrong

Oct 13, 2009

I have a dell inspiron 6000 computer and installed Ram into my laptop. The thing was i tried to push it in and it would not go in. I then later saw there was a spot where u can push the ram in and eventually got it in. I did use lot of force pushing it in.

When i open my laptop, it opens but the screen is black and then turns off in like 7 seconds. I then took out the new ram and installed the old ram. It still has the same problem. Does that mean my laptop does not work anymore? Does it also mean i cannot return my RAM to the online site where i purchased my ram since theres a 30 day policy?

Dell :: Studio 1737Problems Installing Second HDD

Mar 4, 2009

Let me start by saying I wouldn't normally do something like this to a brand new laptop considering I'm not too good with the back end of computers.. but here's the problem I have.

I got a 320GB notebook hdd from Western Digital (WD3200BEVTRTL) in December but was unable to get it to work in my laptop. It didn't work because the new drive is SATA II and the old laptop SATA controller was SATA I and unfortunately I couldn't dumb-down the new disk to work on that computer .....

Dell :: Installing The Bluetooth 365 In A Studio 14z

Jan 6, 2010

I just ordered a Studio 14z from dell.

- C2D 6600
- 3gb ddr3 Ram
- 320gb 7.2k
- 900p lcd
- backlit keyboard

The only option I missed out on was the internal bluetooth.

So I read the Service Manual for the 14z and it doesn't seem like it would be to much trouble to manually install the 365 module. Also I found the 365 internal module on ebay WITH the mounting screws. It seems like a perfect fit.
