How to install Windows XP on a s21e-20

2016-03-19, 12:04 PM

Hi. I removed Win8 and installed Linux Mint from live USB. There are some applications that don't run onder wine so I

tried to install WinXP (only for off-line use) from a live USB. I changed bios settings to legacy. Hitting F12 during startup

shows the USB device but it fails to boot. ACPI error.  Image made with  Rufus 2.7,  settings "MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI"  S21e has no CD drive, only USB3.0 and 2.0. Any help is welcome. Thanks.

Solved! See the solution
