Re: Error In Installing Windows XP in Lenovo G560

you should've searched the forum first, we discussed this issue and found solution already.

change settings in bios for ide/sata mode.

before installation, i also suggest you to burn recovery discs in case you may need.

Re: Error In Installing Windows XP in Lenovo G560

when you see lenovo logo, press f2 to load bios, on configuration tab, change settings for sata mode selection, save and exit.

 

to burn recovery discs, check user manuals.

for dual systems, you need to install sata drivers on xp.

Re: Error In Installing Windows XP in Lenovo G560

Hello everyone!

 

I am using Lenovo G460, i guess it is not that different from G560 for the purposes of this discussion.

I had the same problem with a blue screen. I changed settings in BIOS from AHCI to Compatible and installed XP. After that I updated BIOS from within the XP, installed all the drivers, including the AHCI driver from Lenovo website.

Then, I go back to BIOS and change settings from Compatible to AHCI, and I get the blue screen again.

 

Ok, i don't know anything about NCQ and hot swapping, which I read about on wikipedia, and which i suppose are supported by AHCI, but my question is:

 

Should i now always stay with my settings as Compatible in BIOS and, therefore, never be able to use such features as NCQ and hot swapping? I repeat, that I don't know anything about AHCI or Compatible mode, but I figure that AHCI is better.

 

Please help me in finding the answer, whether to stay on Compatible and forget about AHCI, or may be there is some way to solve the problem for XP users with AHCI mode.

Thank you very much.:smileyhappy:

Re: Error In Installing Windows XP in Lenovo G560

Yes I want only XP. I never tried Win 7, and it's never late)))

 

I found some info on lenovo site, and intel site, that i have to install the AHCI driver before the installation of XP, using F6 and bla bla bla.

Now i just want to see whether my lenovo will see usb flash with driver files.
