Hello,I have an Acer Computer Intel(R)
Core(TM)2Duo CPU E7300 RAM:2GB
32bit Operating System HDD:320GB.
When I try to install WinXP it gives in the midle of intallation process a mistake:(You may have problems with hard disk or you may change or delete hard disk controlers), so I don't know what to do) and I can't intall this Operative System. By other way Windows 7 Ultimate is perfectly instaled, but I want XP becose it is more compatible whit other software.

This may be a problem with SATA controllers that are not built into XP. Google "slipstream" the process that is used to add these drivers to the XP CD. I thought Windows 7 Ultimate was able to emulate Windows XP?

Good Luck
Yes that was a good answer, but I need know more details about this process, for example, which are that controlers that the CD of XP needs ?.
I have the CD of the ACER drivers, perhaps I can get the controlers there.
Please I would be very grateful with your help. thanks.
