I need BIOS, not HP Setup Utility

HP Recommended
Compaq dc5700 Microtower
Microsoft Windows XP

I need to enter bios, not the "HP setup utility", because in the utility there are no settings for SATA controller. I need to change it to IDE, but in the utility there is no option for that. How do i do it?

Hi:

 

Why do you need to change the setting to IDE?

 

A BIOS update won't add that feature anyway.

 

If you are trying to reinstall XP and get the blue screen stop error, simply add the SATA AHCI drivers.

 

See this guide below.  Read the Intel section and then read the downloadable document for how to slipstream all of the sata drivers.

I have zipped up and attached the drivers you need to slipstream below...

Thank you, exactly..
 
I want to reinstall Win XP and it gives me BSOD. I searched for some useful tips on the internet but none of them  worked.
I'll try to add SATA AHCI drivers 🙂

You're very welcome.

 

Hopefully the drivers I posted will work.

 

I got them from the dc7700, which has pretty much the same chipset as yours.

Well, I've got another problem.
I want to install the drivers by USB and F6 key. I folowed steps in the manual, but when it comes to pressing "s" key, it show up:
,,Setup could not find a floppy drive on your machine to load OEM drivers from floppy disk.
* Press ESC to cancel loading OEM drivers
* Press F3 to quit setup."

What should I do?
Thanks 🙂

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, I wouldn't know what you can do about that.

 

Is the FDD enabled in the BIOS?

 

There is a setting to enable/disable the FDD.

 

If you are using a USB FDD, that should just show up, I would imagine.
