Hello eveyone i have a problem that i cant seem to figure out how to fix on my own so hopefully someone here can give me a solution.
So about 2 years ago i got an Emachines E627 that came with windows 7 on it.
Based on the specs of the laptop i figured to get better performance in games i should put windows XP on it and im perfectly fine with that. So i put in the Windows XP disk and booted from it. The setup starts and then goes to a blue screen before i can select anything. i have tried different windows XP disks and i have even tried windows Dark edition because it has a custom boot screen but that one didnt work either so my question is, How can i get windows XP on my laptop?
Thanks for your help if you need to know anymore info about my problem i will gladly edit the post or pm you the info needed!
First make sure you get all drivers from EMachines for XP, burn to disc.
Second, set Bios to boot from CD-Rom first.
Third, if laptop has SATA/Raid/SCSI controller, press F6 to install that first.
Some laptops are build for certain OS, if not supported I suggest not to switch.
If you need to do this, Kill Partition from Windows 7 if it lets you, just Delete it.
This will remove pre-loading MBRs that might prevent booting another OS.
Other option is self booting partitioning software.
