Windows XP help! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Is it a sata reader? Seems some had problems with them in XP


But the bare minimum, One or 2 sticks of ram (2 gigs or less), 1 hd, 1 dvd/cd reader, cpu + gpu and thats it

after you install you can add the other peripherals


Also if you're burning the .iso of a os burn it at the SLOWEST speed possible. I don't know why it works but it does. My first win 7 iso (got it through the student discount program) would always error out (burned at max speed) then I heard to burn at slowest and that same disk has installed windows multiple times on all my systems (unhacked serials, they're legit)

I made back ups of my Windows XP cd and I tired my uncle's xp home. I even tried my OEM copy still not dice. The hard drive is IDE and I had 512mb of ramm in with 1 dvd drive and a video card since there is no one board video.
