Answers :

You're not saying what sort of error you're getting?
BIOS on d330 does not have any limits on whichever operating system user wants to install. I've had d330 running various operating systems with no issues. Your d330 might be some hardware problem however. First things I would try would be checking the hard drive and memory.
Good luck,
Raf
Hi Dear,

As observed form your issue. There might be multiple possibilities for your problem.

Is your Hard Drive a SATA hard drive?

If yes then ordinary windows XP cd is of no uses. This is because windows XP does not recognize a SATA drive.
While installing the OS, it will stop in between and give you compatibality error.

If you are getting the same error then, you should try to install form a windows xp OS which is built for installing on SATA hard drives. Or you must try to upgrade your Bios settings. This will help you out.

If you need more help do come write to me.

Have a nice day.
