The ASUS website shows only drivers for Windows 7 and 8, and then only 64 bit. Most likely XP drivers do not exist. Best to install a compatible OS.

You cannot proceed using DOS as nothing beyond Windows 98 had separate DOS. Effectively XP onwards are their own DOS but it would be best to install the OS intended for that laptop. XP is no longer security supported so it would be a bad choice.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I suspect he means that it only boots to a DOS prompt (which would be suspect, given that it's a very recent machine).

As mentioned above, there's likely no support from ASUS on WinXP for this machine (as offered with Win8, 8.1). Without drivers for the hardware, WinXP would be pretty much neutered on this new of a machine...
