✔ Best Answer
The problem is that your computer has an SATA hard drive which XP, being a 10 year old OS, does not natively support. This problem can probably be solved but there will almost certainly be others, such as the difficulty or inability to find XP compatible drivers. Many hardware manufacturers find that it is not worth the cost to support what is essentially an obsolete OS. XP also has only limited support from Microsoft.

You are much better off using Windows 7 on a new computer. It has many new features, will be able to take full advantage of your hardware (which XP cannot) and offers better compatibility with new software. The day is coming when major software vendors will drop support for XP, at least for most of their products.

Except for some very unusual situations there is no legitimate reason for using XP on a new computer.

I have Dell XPS400 2.8GHz Dual Core with O.S WindowsXP MCE2005 ! Anyway my hard drive is also on a SATA setup . When my O/S became coruppted and would not load . After trying several differant ways to troubleshoot the problem (repair install,etc) I finally had to reformat and reinstall the O/S using the Dell supplied DVD. well athe install of the O/S went smoothly. Howevr when I would start up the PC I would recieve a black screen with a prompt that the SATA H.D. did not have the correct drivers to open and it said to press F1 to continue . Apprently the only way to have the PC reconize the SATA operation is to install te drivers and it wil only work with the use of a floppy drive . Well in 2006 when I purchased this PC new floppy drives where a option ,it did not automayicially comewith one like the computers of the past ? I could purchase a externial floppy drive (USB interface) Howevr I would have no other use for it so for now I just press the F1 key and the PC works fine ! I still scratche my head wondering why the manufactuers would not include a floppy knowing if you ever had to perform a fresh install of th O/S you would need one to use the floppy to get your SATA feature to work again ?

You don't need to have a floppy drive. You can slipstream the required drivers into your WinXP files and burn a new CDR. nliteos is one way to perform that operation. You can also include the latest service pack for WinXP. If your CD does not include at least SP1 you will also have an issue with data corruption if you try to install WinXP on a partiton larger than 128GB.

Get nliteos at the link below. Download the WinXP drivers from the manufacturers site. Get a downloadable version of SP3 from the second link below.

All things considered I suggest you stick with Windows 7 and either run any old programs in a Windows compatibility mode, or run WinXP in a virtual mode.

New laptops may have hardware that have no WinXP drivers available or the drivers will have limited function. Sound and WiFi are two common issues.

Windows 7 is superior to WinXP anyway.

I spelled out exactly how to install WinXP on your laptop. I also pointed out that there may not be any available drivers.

Post your full brand and model for further assistance.

You don't need to necessarily run WinXP in a virtual mode. Running programs and hardware in a Windows compatibility mode is also an option that works with most stuff that worked in WinXP.

See the link below.

Windows 7 has some built in partitioning tools but you may have some problems creating additional partitions.

Go to Windows disk management to create additional partitions. See the link below for help with that.

VirtualPC isn't the only option to create a virtual machine. VirtualBox is a free alternative that works with all editions of Windows 7. Many people consider it superior to VirtualPC.
