G230 windows xp installation failure

2009-03-06, 0:39 AM

I tried to install windows xp on my laptop, but after installing and when it is going to loading windows,a blue screen prompt welcomes me. It says that ''error.. run chkdsk /f'. I tried running it on command prompt but again, i failed.

 

A friend told me to 'slipstream'. but i doubt it is the only way to install the operating system. help.

Did it blue screen while detecting the hard drive, while loading setup files, or while loading Windows boot screen?

Drivers are readily available online. You may have to get the from different sources. I would recommend going to the website of the manufacturer of each component on your computer. This provides you with the latest drivers.

 

For example...if your computer uses an Intel chipset, go to Intel.com

if it uses Realtek audio, go to realtek.com

if it uses Broadcom ethernet connection, go to broadcom.com

 

or you could use software like Driver Genius to automatically detect and download drivers.
