Specs: Windows XP
I've tried to install windows XP and it goes through the install process but it locks up at the "Please Wait" screen. I've installed my Vista CD on it and it installs perfectly. But all the hardware is only XP compatible. The Laptop needed a new Harddrive, and the same thing happened on the old one. Everything else is still factory stock on the laptop. If I try to go into Safe mode the cpu says, "The installation was not completed". I can't do much aside from getting into the bios and everything seems to be in working order. I've tried the onboard recovery and a recovery CD. same hang ups with everything I try. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!
