That is usual query.. Just change the SATA mode in BIOS from AHCI to Compatible. And then if you havnt changed your boot priority.. change it .. 1st boot device as Optical drive.. 2nd as HDD. Then put the win XP cd back in Optical drive. restart the system. boot from the CD. follow instructions... Thatshould do the trick

you may not find the drivers you need from official download page, by the way.

you may need to install them manually.

Re: can i install Windows XP in lenovo z560 ideapad CORE i3 processor

I have recently bought a Z560 laptop and have installed windows xp in it.

The one key theatre, smart noise control and energy management buttons on the laptop do not respond.

Is this a problem due to xp or some other. Please advise as I would like to use these features.

Which XP driver in the link you provided will suffice to solve my problem to use the smart noise control and one key theatre button on the laptop?
