Hello and welcome to the forums
Why can't u install another OS ? what error it reports ?
Also which games do u play ? since most games run well under compatibility mode,also they may have patches too
I did install OS xp pro sp3 from a recovery disc just to to try till I get xp pro full sp2 delivered,
it seem to install fine even knew I had 250gb sata drive. But when I try to install the drivers that xp did not install I get the following. message
Setup has experienced an error.
Please do the following:
- Close any running applications
- Empty your temporary folder
- Check your Internet connection (Internet-based Setup)
Then try to run the Setup again.
Error code: -6003
I am not connected to the internet on the M9700 and I cannot find installshield folders or files anywhere on my M9700. The games I want to run do have problems with vista even when patched that is why I want to install xp pro.
Also the company I got the drivers from sent me a diagnostic program so if I wanted they whould customize a self install driver disc for me. But this exe program would not work on the m9700 a black window appears for about a second then nothing does the same when I put the vista drive back in. But works on my desktop computer.
Sorry to be so long winded.
