Windows XP installation Problem in Lenovo B570 Laptop
Hi, I have run into a problem. About two days ago i bought new system (Lenovo B570) DOS-BASED. When i tried to install Windows XP in it it did not let me do this and crashes within installation. I am describing in following steps how and what problem i faced during installation(please note that Windows XP CD has no problem):
1- I put Windows XP CD and laptop successfully booted with Windows XP Setup.
2- Setup Successfully copied all windows files to hard disk.
3- After step-2, rather moving on next setup screen, blue window appears have a long error description. The key point in Error message was something like this:
"An unexpected error occurred and setup needs to shutdown" then nothing happens...
I have tried with 3,4 XP CDs but same result!!!
I am wondering that is there any need of BIOS setting required?
I have gone through on some article and someone mentioned there that, to install XP on lenovo machine SATA configuration must be set to IDE rather than ACHI(in BIOS)!!!
Can you suggest my to the right decision, what should i do?

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
Lenovo Support - Drivers & Downloads
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD
