I try to install WinXP on a Notebook
"Acer Aspire 3810T-354G32N".
By trying this I get only trouble .
Problem 1: The Acer doesn't have a floppy- or CD-ROM-drive, which makes booting difficulty. I can only boot from USB-stick.
I can prepare USB-Sticks with Rufus or WinSetupfromUSB to be bootable.
Problem 2: If I use Rufus, so the USB-Stick will not be bootable on the Acer.
But I can "solve" problem2 by using WinSetupFromUSB (I tried several Versions, 1.0beta7 and 1.4).
What I already did with WinSetupFromUSB:
- Made a USB-Stick bootable with FAT32 file format
- created a USB-Stick with WinXP-install-files; thereby the files were copied directly from a WinXP-install-CD, not from an ISO-file.
Then it is principially possible to boot from this USB-Stick; I get first this screen http://www.winsetupf...4s_001_QEMU.jpg and can select
the WinXP Setup. The setup at the first starts fine, but after loading FAT file system I get
- either a bluescreen with the 0x0000007B error (if I created the USB-Stick with WinSetupFromUSB1.0beta7)
- or a blackscreen with blinking cursor in the top left of the screen.
1.) I have already tried a modified ntdetect.com Ntdetect.7z 16.32KB 0 downloads, with no difference.
2.) I changed the BIOS setting "SATA MODE" from "AHCI Mode" tho "IDE Mode" and back, with no difference.
3.) I tried to select "Auto-detect and use F6 SATA/RAID/SCSI Driver" like described in http://www.winsetupf...uploads/2013/09, with no difference.
4.) I installed nLite on my (working) PC and tried to add following driver AHCI_Intel_184.108.40.2069_XPx86XPx64_A.zip, which also can be downloaded from Acer's website: http://global-downlo...BC=Acer&SC=PA_6.
But even 4.) had no effect ! I get still the blue- or black-screen described above.
Maybe I did something wrong? I think I have added the driver not properly into nLite. Could it have something to do with the fact that I would need "text mode drivers" (or similarly)?
PS: I had to unpack the nLite ISO- file before creating the bootable USB-Stick with WinSetupFromUSB.
PPS: Here is the *.ini-file created from nLite LETZTE SESSION.INI 5.4KB 0 downloads.
