Almost certainly. But you will probably have to find your own drivers. I doubt compaq will provide XP drivers for it. But if you can do that or find someone to do it for you, sure.

The common problem installing XP on newer systems from the big oem's like Dell or HP is a blue screen during the install process which is usually an AHCI issue. Just switch it to IDE in the bios if you can or slipstream the drivers.

No drivers has been found for this particular machine. XP nowadays is better runned emulated than bare-bone.


Linux runs fine on it as windows 7. I don't see why you would like to run XP as this operating system will be unsupported by MS.

And finally, grow up, as well as the operating system you use. Don't be stuck on windowsXP with a world of issues.

I mean it's 2012 soon 2013. XP was released in 2001 do the math.

So yeah, I guess you can have some fun and a whole world of issues untill 2014.
