I try to install WinXP on a Notebook "Acer Aspire 3810T-354G32N". By trying this I get only trouble . Problem 1: The Acer doesn't have a floppy- or CD-ROM-drive, which makes booting difficulty. I can only boot from USB-stick. I can prepare USB-Sticks with Rufus or WinSetupfromUSB to be bootable. Problem 2: If I use Rufus, so the USB-Stick will not be bootable on the Acer. But I can "solve" problem2 by using WinSetupFromUSB (I tried several Versions, 1.0beta7 and 1.4). What I already did with WinSetupFromUSB: - Made a USB-Stick bootable with FAT32 file format - created a USB-Stick with WinXP-install-files; thereby the files were copied directly from a WinXP-install-CD, not from an ISO-file. Then it is principially possible to boot from this USB-Stick; I get first this screen http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Ashampoo_Snap_2014.01.20_17h30m44s_001_QEMU.jpg and can select the WinXP Setup. The setup at the first starts fine, but after loading FAT file system I get - either a bluescreen with the 0x0000007B error (if I created the USB-Stick with WinSetupFromUSB1.0beta7) - or a blackscreen with blinking cursor in the top left of the screen. At http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/faq/ and http://forum.notebookreview.com/acer/586065-xp-aspire-3810t.html there are described some workarounds. I have tried some of them: 1.) I have already tried a modified ntdetect.com Ntdetect.7z, with no difference. 2.) I changed the BIOS setting "SATA MODE" from "AHCI Mode" tho "IDE Mode" and back, with no difference. 3.) I tried to select "Auto-detect and use F6 SATA/RAID/SCSI Driver" like described in http://www.winsetupfromusb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09, with no difference. 4.) I installed nLite on my (working) PC and tried to add following driver AHCI_Intel_126.96.36.1999_XPx86XPx64_A.zip, which also can be downloaded from Acer's website: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/AHCI/AHCI_Intel_188.8.131.529_XPx86XPx64_A.zip?acerid=633773721411807534&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%203810T&OS=X01&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=PA_6. But even 4.) had no effect :angrym: ! I get still the blue- or black-screen described above. Maybe I did something wrong? I think I have added the driver not properly into nLite. Could it have something to do with the fact that I would need "text mode drivers" (or similarly)? PS: I had to unpack the nLite ISO- file before creating the bootable USB-Stick with WinSetupFromUSB. PPS: Here is the *.ini-file created from nLite LETZTE SESSION.INI.
