To change the ide mode back to sata mode you will have to enter the bios.
To enter the bios you will start the computer and as it is starting tapping the delete key,F2 or F10 key depending on your computer.
Once you are in the bios you can change the ide mode back to sata mode.

Every time i try to install windows xp on this laptop i just keep getting an error message. i was told i need to disable the AHCI, how do i go about doing this?


Installing XP on a SATA drive requires an additional step:

http://xphelpandsupport.mvps.org/how...ws_xp_on_a.htm

However, Most newer BIOS allow an Alternate method for SATA . . Go into the bios and check the "Sata Operation" setting,

change it to "Raid Autodetect/ATA if it is not already. Now try to install XP ( could be IDE Mode, Compatibility Mode or Legacy Mode - different BIOS use different terms )

some will say IDE instead of ATA)

If there are no such settings you'll need to slipstream the sata drivers on the XP CD, follow the instructions in this guide :

http://www.digitgeek.com/how-to-slip...rs-into-xp-cd/

or

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...-installation/

Or, you might consider installing Windows 7 . .

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

Ok, if it is as what i think, the solution is very simple, just inter the SETUP (F2) and change the SATA mode to (IDE), the default is ACHI if i'm correct, i dont have time to enter the BIOS to get the right name, just do it..

enter the bios and change the SATA mode to IDE, then save and exit. now you can install XP..
