Hello, I have a problem that i wanted to install win XP on my laptop but the setup menu gives me the screen of preparing set up and the set up stops when the partition screen is about to come,I tried to install Linux Ubuntu and the same happened, and with windows 7 after partitioning it stops at the first second of installing
PLEASE HELP , in the past i was able to install any OS normally but i don;t know what happened to th laptop
note: don't tell me to change the bios setting of hard drive from AHCI to IDE as when i bought the laptop the first time i have changed it
I have acer Extensa 6530Z

Thank you
Hi there,

If needed to make downgrade you need to change the settings in bios for it,but as mentioned,problem seems to be with the hard drive itself,if still on warranty then let then do needful else you have to purchase and change it.

Thanks

this is exactly what happened to me, after win7 worked and i'm using it now , the same problem still exists I still can't install xp or linux , I have tried different CDs that worked on other computers so i think the problem wasn't in the CDs
