    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I need help.
    I tried installing Windows XP with my original Italian installation disc, but when I booted it up and went through a bit of the setup, it crashed saying that I would need a bios update and check the manufacturer's site (For me its ASUS) But I cant find anything, so I thought it might've been a UEFI incompatibility



    Here are my specs upload_2018-6-2_10-3-27.png

    xp will not install on a sata drive without controllers

    are you trying to dual boot?

    so are those controllers slipstreamed into the xp install disk?

    otherwise you have to press F6 at install and use a floppy drive. :)

    you do not need a floppy if you integrate your controllers with nlite, do you want to do this?

    https://www.nliteos.com/download.html

    cornemuse said in the other thread that some drives will not allow xp to be installed on them, have you checked with the drives' manufacturer?

    the thread you say did not have a solution posted, and the OP mostly wanted drivers, his xp installed fine.

    I had said that some newer motherboards will not allow XP to be installed anymore.
    Most new hard drives, (in their specs), claim to not to be compatible with XP, but I have yet to come across a new hdd that would not allow XP install. (up to 1Tbyte, anywayz)

    Sorry for this but, I tried slipstreaming the drivers with N-Lite but to no use, as i followed a tutorial, I burned the new "patched" iso to a blank disc, when booted it would load the leds on my keyboard and mouse, but it wouldnt show any video input, so now I need to find someone with enough time to patch these things for me, I already made an ISO of my XP CD, it is an Italian version with Service Pack 2 pre installed, If anyone here on the forums were so kind to do these things, message me and I'll try to provide a link

    I do not slipstream my drivers to my xp install cd, I like to install in a certain order (dell DSS and then Chipset), I had meant for you to slipstream the sata controllers only.

    I am confused now, did any other threads in my link to the search page have any other help?

    I have not used a virtual drive, so I cannot say, hopefully someone with virtual experience will be able to answer.
