Compaq CQ40-108TU unable to install XP OS

\015 Hello, I am using compaq CQ40-108TU laptop. I want to downgrade my OS from VISTA to XP. I tried With Installing XP but it shows message that Local Disk (C) may be affected by virus. When i enquired I was informed that COMPAQ CQ40-108TU was designed for VISTA but i have seen people using XP in CQ40-108TU model. what should i do to downgrade my OS from VISTA to XP?\015

Answers :

But there is no ption of disabling SATA in bios on Compaq CQ40 lappies, so how we go about it then?
\015\012Here you can use a software "nlite" and prepare a customised xp installation disc by integrating your SATA drivers (for Sata drivers search with AHCI Sata drivers in google). once the cd is ready install as you do it on desktop its so easy.
Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.
