Even as an option, if the machine is powerful enough - use a virtual computer (Virtual PC), by the way microsoft distributes free of chargeVirtual PC. Or use the "paid" software from VmWare, which will definitely be better than the product from Microsoft!

Machine Acer Aspire 4315. When I tried to install XP, the installer "did not find any hard drives." How to be?



Rep: (70)
solberg ,
There are no drivers for the used disk controller in the Windows distribution kit.

At the beginning of the installation, click f6, and insert the boot disk, where this driver is

If you want to put "Linux", and you do not have a shaman tambourine, then give up this idea. If you have it, then you know what to do.

khe-khe ... The question is clear, I hope? : wink_kind:
Strongly interested in the question - and if it doesn’t scream at the same time d2d recovery or how-it-there (Acer A3682wxc)?

solberg , look in the BIOS of the machine whether there is an option to change the S-ATA mode ... it is quite possible that there is not native (ahci) mode and then XP screw will see ...

What about diamonds it is too much said (of course if you are not going to put Gentoo and the like), he put on a laptop Acer Extensa 5620G Linux, and being without dancing and drums, quite understandable, graphical installer and to something to spoil it seems to me you need this want. About rekoveri section was whist, first, there was a section, put Linux: Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE (and it was), and at the same section rekaveri and whist remained intact, ie when you press Alt + F10 to run recovery well. But here I wish to warn, eating will put the FreeBSD partition rekaveri likely zaporete (OpenBSD with no such sections remain).

Yes, there is such a thing: wink_kind: Thanks for the hint.

And more such question. They say that on Acera there is a so-called. hidden recovery section. After installing XP, is it possible to pull out drivers from there? Or is it easier to download them from the site?



Rep: (832)
solberg ,
On my, you can create a "recovery disk" with all the wood and prog (except for Norton, it seems; I do not remember whether there will be any other add-ons).
At the same time he gets everything from the hidden section, and put it in the daddy. The disc can be not recorded, but the daddy remains :-p

Thanks to shatarys, I solved this problem. I have a HP laptop with a license of XP only 64bit. "Integrating SATA drivers into the Windows XP distribution" did not help. Thank you buddy

serniga ,
find out what kind of devices, reinstall the driver for each



Rep: (5)
serniga , open your unknown device in the manager and in the "Information" tab, look at the device instance code - you can easily find a driver using it by Google ... In principle, there is a utility that simplifies this action - tyts .



Rep: (0)
Well .... standard answers ...
I understand that flights to space are still paid ...
So far I have not solved the problem!
Thank you all for the answers !!!



Rep: (112)
mur-mur-meow ,

And about backup, than (what program) is it better to do?



Rep: (4)
I have a question about Asus A8S (Vista Home Premium) laptop:
The book "Recovery DVD" is attached to the book. Is it possible with the help of it to return the OS to its original form (as soon as from the store)? And how to do it?
