Hi Forumers,

Good Day :)
I have a Acer Aspire One which is using 8GB Solid State Driver (SSD) and originally installed with Windows XP Home Edition SP3 but i decided to format this netbook since it is running very slow and has lots of viruses.
I used external CD Drive to run the bootable CD and the process went fine until the part where it says:
"Examining 7696MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi"
It just stuck there and i ever leave it for few hours but it is still in the same situation.
Uploaded the Picture for better understanding.

Kindly replace the (dot) with . as i was blocked by the web :(

I searched on google for few hours and still don't get the exact answer.
I have changed different kind of Windows CD but still no luck

Do any expert here know the idea of getting this work? :?
Really appreciate and welcome any helps and comments.

Thanks for your time :)

Regards,
Nelson

Doesn't that machine have in internal CD?

Disconnect the external CD drive, boot the machine & hit F10 or alt F10. That should put in in recovery mode.

If I am not mistaken, XP does not support SSD's out of the box so you are going to have to install the drivers for the SSD prior to actually installing the OS. When you boot from the CD and begin the installation, at the bottom you will see a message pop up asking you to press F6 to install third party drivers.

That may be your problem, I have yet to use SSD so I am not 100%.

Hi Don,Thanks for your reply. My Acer Aspire One Netbook doesn't have internal CD drive.I tried the alt+F10 method but the problem is there.

Hi Grinch,Thanks for your time..I found out the machine is using Samsung P-SSD1800,I tried searching for the driver but couldn't find it.Mind to help if you have free time?I really hope that this is not the problem of the SSD itself :)

Thanks for the favorable reply guys.
Really appreciate it.
I Like IT,I Love this forum :)

Did you try F10 by itself without alt & without the CD? It should work.

And how do you propose he does this, considering in his first post he stated that he formatted the drive?

With a username of Microsoft_Support, one would think you would provide better assistance.
