Install XP on M90

[ Edited ]

Hello, I've bought a M90 desktop and it came with W7.

I want to install my copy (original) of XP but don't know how to change the BIOS.

Can anyone help me please?

Thank you.

Re: Install XP on M90

Change the compatability options from SATA to AHCI that should help

Re: Install XP on M90

I have been able to install XP onto an M90 as long as I set the SATA option to IDE.  If I don't, then the setup bluescreens right after it goes through trying to load all the drivers.

 

I also wasn't able to install the latest Intel chipset software.  The instructions indicate that it can be installed after OS Install but those instructions to match up with what I see in the device mgr for replacing these drivers.

 

What isn't included with this driver download is the ability to create a diskette for use in inserting the drive during the actual XP install (by pressing F6, I think). This would simplify things greatly.

 

Can anyone help?

Re: Install XP on M90

If you want to use a floppy and the "F6" method,
Intel support should have the files.
Be sure to identify the proper chipset controller first.

Also the drivers can be "slipstreamed" onto a
XP install disk you create, but this is a fairly
complicated process.

Re: Install XP on M90

Confirming a previous post, I downloaded the Intel 5/2400 Series SATA ACHI Controller drivers, which included the files that can be put on a floppy so that you can hit F6 during the XP install.

 

That way you don't have to change any SATA settings in the BIOS.
