Hello,

Try this 1.

Solution 1:

Just change the SATA mode to IDE/Compatible Mode in BIOS. But the

performance decreases.

Solution 2:

1) Download nlite software & install it
https://www.nliteos.com/download.html

2) Download SATA Driver from this link
http://global-download.acer.com/...

After downloading ---> Right click on that file --> Select "Extract to

AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86" (Note : You can use winrar to extract the files)

2.1) Now you can see the folder "AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86".

2.2) Double-click on "AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86" folder and again

double-click on "AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86". Now copy that folder named

"Intel AHCI v.7.5.0.1017" in any drive. Here I assume that folder was copied to

D drive. Also create a folder named "mydrivers" in the D drive.

2.3) Now your D drive should contain two folders named "mydrivers" and

"AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86".

2.4) Now open command prompt. If you are using vista or windows 7 then

Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd and press Enter.

Now enter the following commands in the command prompt.

d: ----> Press "Enter".

Now your prompt must change to D:\>

cd AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86 ----> Press Enter.

Now your command prompt changes to d:\AHCI_Intel_7.5.0.1017_XPx86>

setup.exe -a -pd:\mydrivers -------> Press Enter.

Now installation window will appear --> Wait for the process to get completed

---> Then click on "Yes".

Now you can see the drivers file in the "mydrivers" folder.

3) Place the "Windows xp" cd in the drive.

4) Open nlite application---> click on "Browse" and navigate it to your cd drive

that contains xp cd placed in that drive. ----> then it asks you where to save

the files ----> just navigate to your desired location ---> click on "New Folder"

button and select that folder --->click on OK---> Now it copies the windows xp

files. After that click on Next--->Next.

5) In task selection --->Click on "Drivers" and "Bootable ISO" options -->click

on "Next".

6) Now click on "Insert" ---> click on "Multiple Folder"----> Navigate to the

mydrivers folder location and select the folder "Drivers" ---->Click on "All"

button---> ----->Click on "OK"--->in "Text mode integration options", Select all

the drivers and click on OK--->Click on "Next".

7) Click on "Yes" to start the process. Then click on "Next".

8) In "Mode" option select your choice whether you want to make image or

burn it to cd.

9) If you want to make ISO file then click on "Make ISO" button

10) After burning this slipstream xp, now try to install it.

Good luck.
