Can't Install WinXP on Compaq Presario CQ43-303AU Notebook PC


Recommended Posts

Run any decent hardware detection program (HWinfo32 or SIV) from the existing OS (if applicable) to see that. Most are portable and run from a PE as well.

Your last thread was urgent as well. :rolleyes:

Google reveals "FreeDos" initially installed.

Could be an AMD chipset or an Intel chipset according to the manual. You either have to use a hardware detection tool (as Ponch said) or open it up and inspect it.

Google "Compaq Presario CQ43-303AU" (with the quotes) and you'll see the Manuals listed (PDF's) and basic Specs (which says FreeDos).

the general VEN_1002&DEV_4391

I don't use a A50M fusion. Does this match a A50M fusion?

Currently driver supports









However I doubt the RAID IDs at given machnie, a AHCI ID should match.
