Question about Gateway (M520HD100G) Hard Drive
I want to put xp home on my gateway harddrive (vista basic preinstalled) - my xp home disc does not find my hard drive
You need to have installed drivers for xp for that hard drive. Without them it won't load.
You can go to the Gateway site and enter your serial number to see the original configuration of your system, get the names of the hardware installed on it, and look for drivers for xp for all of that hardware.
Please see this article and follow the links at the end to make sure you have all the drivers needed for an xp installation. Downgrade vista to xp
Also an excellent tutorial for updating drivers here and a source of drivers here
