I just bought a Samsung Series 9 laptop, and I want to install Windows XP on it. It's supposed to support Windows XP and there are Windows XP drivers on its product page.
I've installed Windows XP on many computers before so I'm generally familiar with the process, but this one is stumping me.
I deleted the existing pre-installed Windows 7 partitions (after backing them up) and then put the Windows XP disc in my external CD drive and booted from it. The blue installation screen came up, and after a while seemed to have completed copying files to the HD successfully.
But the hard-drive won't boot in order to continue the Windows XP installation. I just get a black screen with a blinking cursor.
I tried enabling and disabling AHCI. I tried enabling and disabling UEFI booting. I looked at the partition with Disk Director and confirmed it has an
ntldr file. But I couldn't get it to work.
Does anyone have any idea?
