Jan 27, 2010

installing Windows XP on my HP Pavillion Dv2100. Windows could load with Native Sata disabled but when I try to enable it, it gives me a BSOD during the Windows loading screen. I tried doing the steps on [url] and it still doesnt work.

I also tried reinstalling Windows with Native Sata enabled but it says Windows cannot detect a hard disk. Tried reinstalling using a Flash Drive with Windows installed using WinToFlash and it said "Ntldr is missing".

HP Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA OS/Software :: Installing Ubuntu Alongside Windows 7

Aug 7, 2011

I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA Notebook which has WIndows 7 Home Edition OS. I would like very much to install Ubuntu 12.04 OS on its own partition to dual boot with Windows. However, my understanding is that the Notebook has 4 primary partitions on the HDD that are already used and therefore no more partitions can be made. I can shrink the 'C' drive partition to make space but I understand I also have to free up a whole partition. I know I can install Ubuntu 'Inside' Windows but I would rather not.
Some contributors say one can safely delete HP-Tools to provide a partition for Ubuntu but others advise not to because HP-Tools contains a BIOS recovery kit which, they say,  is essential.

Sony :: Installing Windows XP

Feb 10, 2010

Model : SONY VAIO FS740/W

PhoenixBIOS Setting
1. BIOS Version : R0084J1
2. EC BIOS Version : RK084J1
3. IDE Channel 0 Master : 80GB (TOSHIBA)
4. IDE Channel 0 Slave : CD/DVD (SONY DVD DW-Q58A)
5. Boot Options:
Optical Drive
Floppy Disk Drive -> Y-E DATA USB-FDU-(USB)
Hard Disk Drive -> TOSHIBA MK8025GAS-(PM)

I formatted my laptop HDD by connnecting it as an external HDD to another laptop and did start -> control panel - > Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> storage -> Disk Management: Delete Partition and Format my HDD.

My internal DVD writer is not reading DVD. DVD writer is attempting to read DVD, I can see lights, I can hear the sound of disk spinning. After 2-3 seconds of attempting to read DVD it stops and starts again. this happens over and over till I remove the DVD.

I have an external USB DVD writer(it works) which is not detecting at bootup. I was counting on that to install XP. I have an external USB floppy drive - it gets detected at bootup

When I start my computer I get "Operating System not found"(of course). I have a XP installation cd. I tried making a USB stick boot XP installation - not detecting USB stick at startup. I also looked at BIOS settings to enable USB - I don't see any such feature

1) How can I enable BIOS to detect my external USB DVD writer?
2) How can I install XP?

Apple :: Installing Windows

Mar 14, 2009

I used boot camp a few days ago without having my vista ultimate yet and I partitioned the hardrive in half then this morning I tried installing windows as said in this forum as to use the assistant in boot camp and I got to the part where it said where would you like to install the OS, they gave 4 different options and only one would have been enough space to put a partition so I figured I could delete the other partitions and see but now it left me with only 1 full HD , the other problem with this is the CD won't eject and keeps wanting to install the windows on the full partition , anyone know how to eject the cd any commands ? so maybe I could boot back to OSX

Dell :: Installing Windows XP On An Inspiron 13

Sep 24, 2008

I recently purchased an Inspiron 1318 from Best Buy and while I love it so far, trying to play a few games has been an awful experience. Vista is pretty much useless when it comes to older games, even some games that were released about a year ago. What I would like to do is to dual boot into an XP partition just for playing games. I think my biggest problem will be finding drivers for this notebook that will work on xp. Also, I've never made a dual boot system before, though I have done plenty of installs and reformats.

Acer :: BSOD While Installing Windows

Dec 2, 2008

I have an Acer 3100 laptop and I've been trying to install windows on it for the past few days. The problem is after Windows formats the drive and copies the files, i'll get the BSOD after it restarts. I've tried using a different hdd and ram. I've tried installing Windows XP and Vista. I tried loading an image of a fully loaded windows but that didn't work. I ran ram and hdd testes but no problems show up. I'm really out of ideas now. I also updated the BIOS but that didn't help.

Dell :: Installing Windows Xp With External Cdrom

Dec 13, 2007

I decided to reformat and reinstall windows, mainly because I was having a few harddrive issues... my internal cdrom doesn't work, so I've been using an external cdrom for as long as I can remember.. Anyway, I reformatted the harddrive, not knowing that usb cdrom drives arent detected without windows(I could've sworn that I've done it before)...

Anyway, now I'm stuck with an empty laptop, and I'm not quite sure how to go about installing the os... I'm probably going to get a cdrom soon, but I can't really do that at this point. I was wondering if there's an alternative way in doing this.. I do have access to a desktop computer, and I do have a usb floppy driver and a usb cdrom drive.. (laptop detects the floppy drive just fine)...

Sony :: Installing Windows XP- VAIO NS110E

Apr 13, 2009

I have a Sony VAIO NS110E laptop that I would like to downgrade to Windows XP.

The video chipset is just plain to slow for Windows Vista (for my liking) so I would like to move to Windows XP. (Hopefully it will be better).

I tried to search for anyone that has done a guide for this model or series, but there is virtually nothing for the NS series on these forums.

Everytime I put Windows XP on the laptop, I can not connect to any wireless network. No matter what I try.

Acer :: Installing Windows XP 64 Bit On Extensa 5420

Apr 29, 2009

I installed Windows XP 64 bit on my extensa 5420 and I've been finding it really hard to just access wireless LAN. I downloaded the drivers off of the website link in the other thread about extensa 5420. After installing those drivers, nothing happened because it couldn't detect my wireless adapter. The only network adapter detected is the 1394 net adapter. Under other devices (question signs next to them) are : Audio Device, Ethernet Controller, Mass Storage Controller, Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus, Network Controller, SM Bus Controller.

How do I get LAN and wireless LAN to work? I love having windows xp 64 bit.

I have aspire 6920 and I love the features this computer has but I am not very happy with vista. Can I install xp pro? I know that deleting the pq service partition is not wise but I would rather have xp pro. How do I delete pq service? Also, is this action reversible? If I can install xp can I ever go back to the manufacturer OS? I have created the restore cd's but will they work without the pq service partition.

Dell XPS 15 L502X :: Heating After Installing Windows 8

Jan 29, 2013

I have installed windows 8 on my system last month. Till Windows 7 was installed everything was fine. Battery backup was around 2.5 to hours on normal use and 1.5-2 hours if I used to hear song or watch movie. But after I have installed windows 8 the heating problem has started, battery backup has dropped. It gives around 50 minutes on hearing songs and around 30 minutes on watching movies and around 1.5 hours on normal use.
