Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, i3 2100 3.10GHz / 4GB Kingston
I have a problem with Intel core i3 2100 3.10GHz processor and Intel DH61WW motherboard and Western Digital WDC WD500AAKX-500-001CA0 hard disk and a 4GB DDR3 kibgston ram I'm using a Windows 7 Ultimate on my PC and its working smoothly and very fast but I want to install Windows XP SP3 on my system but when i tried to install a blue error screen appeared but after that i came to know that windows xp is not compatible with sata ahci drivers than i changed my sata drive mode to ide mode in bios settings and after that when i tried windows xp sp3 installed perfectly this is a answer to all the people trying to install windows xp on same motherboard and processor like me but here we go the next question for them if they'll install xp on there system and my problem is windows Xp starts lagging badly when i try to open a program for example :VLC, Foxit, Dreamweaver where on other side all these programs run very fast when i use them with windows 7 on same system

So my question is what is the solution for this situation ? Same happens with windows Vista Home Premium but it doesn't need to change sata ahci mode to sata ide option in bios settings.

And For People Who dont know anything about this please dont waste my time and this threads look by posting suggestions to stay with windows 7 cause if there is a solution i'll use windows xp for sure cause i like it very much otherwise win 7 is also not bad . .

I doubt this is the problem but it should probably be done anyway - install the XP SATA drivers, then re-enable SATA mode in the BIOS. Use the 3rd download on this list:

I am geting a message while installing .

The computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.

May be because i am running on ide mode ?
