im in alot of trouble here ive never worked with old computers or laptops b4, and i was suppose to format the drve and install xp onto my freinds armada 1750 laptop, but little did i know that apperently the bios settings are in a hidden partition and since that partition is gone i cant access it also since there is no operating system it seems to boot from cd anyway, so i created a primary dos partition then inserted the xp install disk but it comes up something about cache size and minimum cache and gives me a couple options like 'BL=16'(LOOK AHEAD BUFFER IS IN CONVENTIONAL MEMEORY , SIZE IN KB and a couple other options too) but i am completly lost is it just that the laptop is too old and wont take xp? also tried win 2000 but same thing happend. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
