Windows XP installation

I would like to install Windows XP on my laptop (now I have Vista). * Eldorado * told me that if I want to install XP, I need to set the SATA mode of * AHCI * to * compatible *. He said it can be done in the BIOS.

So, I found in the BIOS, changed and saved.

But now my computer is telling me that it cannot start and it starts "repair System" (I don't know how it is in English, I have Polish windows). Then I turned back on it AHCI and my computer started without any problems.

So what I need to do to get it right?


There are two different installation options:
As Eldorado tells you, you can switch the compatible SATA mode first, and then you must boot from the Windows XP disk in order to install Win XP.

After the passage in compatibility mode, you will NOT be able to start the Vista! But you want to install Win XP so it s no matter who start of Vista doesn t.

Second installation procedure is to leave the SATA to AHCI mode and reinstall the SATA drivers. Intel Storage Manager contains the SATA drivers. You can include the SATA files to new disk Win XP using nLite.

Look here in the forum for similar topics, there are many!

PS: before that you'd do anything with your laptop, create a RECOVERY disk using disk Toshiba reocvery creator!

  • Problems with the windows 10 installation partitions

    So I try to install windows 10 via bootcamp on my macbook pro 2012.

    However, I still have problems when I get to the screen of partition on windows 10 installation.

    So I opened the USB BOOT EFI and install from there.

    I enter my product key, accept the license, and I'm greeted by the partitioning. I select the bootcamp partition, but it will not format, gives me an error message, or it will allow me to format, but no real format. If I try to delete the partition I can't create a new one, because it gives me an error message. If I try to solve this problem by making the partition EXFAT / FAT always displays the problem. If I format it under OS X EXTENDED it allows me to move forward, but after installation, it simply gives me the blue screen of death trying to boot from the BOOT EFI of SSD.

    No idea how to solve this problem, I am getting very frustrated and frankly upset against apple to give instructions so little.

    Thank you.

  • Satellite M30X windows 2000 installation problem

    I noticed ribooth has also posted a message with the same problem... but I haven't seen a real answer. The problem: if I try to install Windows 2000 Professional (including SP2) on my satellite M30X-130. The windows 2000 Setup program crashes with a "page in a no fault paged area" in acpi.sys just at the moment where the status in the status bar has been changed from windows 2000. If I press F7 during startup, acpi support is disabled and no page error occurs but the windows 2000 installation hangs on "the first screen" where you should be able to start, stop and? installation. There is no additional hardware installed and I'm unable to partition and format the HD with W2k. If I do it with win98 and create a FAT32 partition and try to install w2k on it I get the same ' page in a no fault paged area "acpi.sys error. Any suggestions to fix this?

    Make sure that the system BIOS and other hardware is compatible with Windows 2000.

  • Bootcamp does not recognize the Windows 7 installation DVD

    Hi guys,.

    I've never had a problem installing Windows 7 via bootcamp on my Mac, but it seems an impossible feat, right now! :))

    I have a Windows 7 bootable *.iso, but since I'm on 2010 Macbook Pro, I have to burn it to a DVD and install from there (I can't find the disk of valuable facilities).

    It is, every time that I burn it, it does not get recognized as a bootable DVD with bootcamp and not appear as a boot disk in the selection screen, you need to keep alt right after the startup chime.

    I tried at different speeds (2 x, 4 x, 8 x). I tried to convert the image using disk utility and selection of DVD/CD master and burning at different speeds.

    I'm in two DVD and I don't know what to do :) I've got El Capitan installed (so less disk utility options).

    Please help! :))


    This latest DVD Virgin and it worked! BUT dig this error I had!

    Boot Camp only supports 64-bit Windows 8 installation. Please use a Flash DRIVE or a DVD that contains 64-bit Windows 8.

    WHAT? !!! Even though it says to install Windows 7 or a later version?

  • Ins work ' t Windows Modules Installer

    I tried to install Service pack 1, it failed due to an 0x800f0826 error.

    I discovered that the Windows Modules Installer, which is required for installation, appearently doesn't work.
    It is not listed in Control Panel > Administration > Services.

    I tried running sfc/scannow in cmd high, and it does not work.

    The TrustedInstaller file which is IS located in the maintenance folder in Windows, but I can't seem to run.

    I also tried to download a registry Fix TrustedInstaller, but it does not help. I tried this solution with PsTools and the file psexec - no difference.

    Also, I also tried to copy another TrustedInstaller in maintenance records, but that makes no difference either.

    I really need help here. Is it possible to get the installer of Modules of Windows to work? Download a new version of the installer of Modules if it is corrupted? My computer is not shipped with a CD/DVD of Vista, so I can't run a Vista repair.

    Please help me!

    Your quickest resolution would be to safeguard any staff data (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this stage) can do a format and clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) will NOT fix it!


    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the next page before connecting the machine to the internet or a network otherwise and before using a USB key that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formatted:

    5 steps to help protect your new computer before going online

    Note: When you reinstall Vista, the free trial Norton will be also reinstalled (but invalid). You MUST uninstall it, and then rerun the removal tool Norton BEFORE installing a replacement AV app (e.g., F-Secure).

    NB: If your computer came with a set of disks, there is a hidden partition restore (not to be confused with the restoration of the system) you can use to do the clean install. Contact the OEM manufacturer with this.

    Hi guys

    I had installed up-to-date antivirus software and my problem seems to start after an update from Microsoft. Do a search on the web and you will see similar stories. I spent so much time trying to solve this I think it's better just to do a re-install. Certainly not the resolution I had hoped, but appreciate this type of questions are almost impossible to solve the problems through intermittent mail such messages.

  • Where can I get a copy of the Windows XP installation for my sister. His was a virus and I had to format the drive. It's a registered computer

    Where can I get a copy of the Windows XP installation for my sister. His was a virus and I had to format the drive. It's a registered computer. I have it ready for the operating system but I need to download a copy so I can retrieve my CD-ROM/DVD-Rom drive, so I can then bring to its system and reinstall the XP and then if she wants that we can get a windows 8. I use windows 8 on this system, I bought a few months ago and it's satisfying, but I don't understand why when I got it I could do things like using the keyboard of the screen with my fingers, but now I can't even use the keyboard mouse. It won't work at all. In a way I found it better that way at the beginning because I do a lot of typing and it would freeze until I was constantly stressed. I returned to Windows 7 mode I think but not sure.  All I know is that these two things have never worked correctly, so if they are still under warranty I will bring to the Future Shop and maybe they can fix it. I wish I could turn on and off easily so it does not interfere with my writing and study of a language second.

  • Windows XP Installer does not not for updates or MS Office 2010. Error says Safe Mode, but I'm not in it.

    Windows XP Installer doesn't work is not for the automatic updates or MS Office 2010. Error says Safe Mode, but my machine is not in Mode without failure.

    When I try to run MS Office 2010, it starts a dialog box "preparing to install...." "even if I had used it for a few years. In the end, it fails and tells me whether I'm in Mode safe or I need to reinstall Windows Installer, I have done several times.

    I can automatically download updates and they seem to be installed, but all fail at the end.

    Any ideas on how to address this problem? Yes, I know that it is probably recommended to buy a new PC, but I need this machine operate fully for the next months. Then by reloading the operating system does not, either. He told me that my XP disc is the wrong version.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.
