Help to install XP on G530A


I had a problem. I am trying to install Windows XP on my laptop G530A but after inserting disc and restart the computer, the installation program starts to load files and after 1-2 minutes, I get a BSOD saying "Windows shut down to prevent damage to your computer" and I can't do anything else. CurrentY Ubuntu is installed on the entire hard drive

I've seen WinXP drivers on Lenovo web page so I suppose WinXP is installed on this machine?

Note: I have not all important files that I want to keep on my computer at this time, so things backup is not important.

I guess I solved the problem, I changed the mode HDD on BIOS from AHCI to IDE and it is now installed. I hope that this change does not break anything?

  • Help to install drivers

    I need help to install drivers from here: β = en & product = 3998680 I can't seem to understand what are the components on a number of things. 〉  Recently, I upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7.  Question 1 - is equivalent to the driver HP Advisor HP Total Care Advisor?  If it is not and is an updated version has the better, so should I uninstall Total Care before you install the driver?  Also, when I updated from Vista to 7, I noticed that during the update it updated to the ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics/video. However what I can't say is if one who is already updated the same as the driver on the driver page or if its still a stale version.  I ask this because when my computer updated it automatically updated the Bios, but I still had to go and update the bios again from this page.  Is there an easy way to know if what you already have on your computer is version updated the drivers on the link?  I don't want install something I already have if its already been updated.

    The HP Advisor is the same as HP Total Care advisor, we used to have in Vista. You can download and it wil update your Total Care Advisor, that's what I did, and everything worked well.

    If you want to check if you have the latest version of the drivers on the Web site (such as for your ATI
    Radeon HD 3200), go to device-> graphics cards Manager->, click with the right button on ati radeon-> click Properties-> go to the tab "driver", then it looks like the version 'pilot', which is also mentioned on the page of the HP driver.

    Supposedly, when you run the HP support assistant (which is also accessible through HP advisor once update you), it detects if you have outdated drivers, but it does not work for me, so just browse the driver page and then check the Device Manager if you have the same version as what HP has published.

    I would try a Setup offline first before try something else.

    Somewhere during the download of WLE part, I have a suspicion

    as the files are to be damaged because of the speed, or lack of

    your internet connection.

    You can download and save setup proper, offline

    the link below and follow the instructions to see if it solves the problem.

    Good luck.

    3 have you checked on the HP website to see if these Comptuer models have Vista drivers available for their hardware?

    If there is no Vista drivers, you're wasting your time.

  • I bought a HP with Windows 10 Tower preloaded. Is there place where I can get help with installing Windows 7?

    * Original title: Windows 10 disappointment

    Recently, I bought a HP with Windows 10 Tower preloaded.  I gave up 10.  I would like to return to the Windows 7 desktop.  If I buy or buy this software, I guess I have to 'wipe' 10 of my machine?  Or I would just download 7 top?   What I have found online are instructions for people who have updated to 10 and want to revert to an earlier version of windows.  In my case, I never had an earlier version on the machine I have now.  Is there place where I can get help with installing Windows 7?  Online, local dealer?  Thank you.

    If I were you, I call HP and tell them that you do not want this computer with Win10.  They are very likely still sells machines with Win7 for businesses, because most companies do not affect the Win10 with a 10 foot barge pole.

    Dell is selling them for sure.  I've been helping my clients by computers Dell Win7 for a very long time now and just had one on my desk a week ago.  Look at the range of Dell Vostro of computers.

    The trick is to approach Dell as a businessman, and not as a normal consumer.
