Specs: Windows XP
I just want to share some solution to the problem below;


I got an Acer 4736Z laptop recently and its preinstalled with linux DOS.

I tried to install Windows XP then I get the below mentioned error message in the middle and stopped the installation.

0X0000007B(0XF78D2524, 0XC0000034, .....).

Why is this so? Can I get a solution for this?


Step 1. Before you turn on your Laptop, prepare to press the F2 Key to enter the BIOS Setup
Step 2. Once your Laptop have started, press F2 (This will open up the BIOS Setup)
Step 3. From the menu (Located on the upper part of the screen - There were Information, Main, Security, Boot and Exit) select the "Main" by using your right arrow key on your keyboard. (List of option settings will be displayed)
Step 4. From the options, select "SATA Mode" by using your down arrow key. Once selected, press Enter/Return Key. The default value for this settings is "AHCI". Change it to "IDE".
Step 5. From the Main Menu again, select "Boot"
Step 6. Select your internal CD ROM drive and press F6 until the CD ROM drive will be move on the very first place of the lists.
Step 7. From the Main Menu again, select "Exit"
Step 8. Select "Exit Saving Changes" then you're good to go for the installation!.

Good luck!
