install windows XP on a compaq presario

Post by cowboycomputer on Tue 26 Jan 2010, 8:18 am

Hello all,

So i am having an issue with a older laptop hard drive failed (actually i dropped it ) so i bought a new one
but i am unable to install windows XP pro on it
i formated the drive it does the windows copying files and reboots it tells me it has 38 min to install, as it is going through that i get a popup error device installer error: something about the battery and to contact the hardware vender, then it gives the same error about the cdrom and about the disk drive.

once i click ok to them it countinues and gets me to set the time once it finishes and then reboots it goes into a reboot loop

asking how i want to start the system IE safe mode......

I don't have the recovery disks that came with the system but there has to be a way to instal without them

if you droped it check the ram, try reseating them sometime a bad memory module or bad connection can cause sporatic errors
