First of all, as this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive, any retail version of windows XP will not be able to detect the Hard Drive because of which you are getting this kind of errors when trying to install XP.

However, to proceed with installing XP in your Notebook, I recommend you to disable the SATA Native Support option which will be present with Notebooks installed with Intel Processor and not with AMD Processor.

You can disable the SATA Native Support feature from the BIOS by following the instructions below :

Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to the BIOS setup window.

In this, go to the System Configuration tab where you will find the SATA Native Support.

Press Enter to select it when the option is hilighted and set the option to Disabled.

Now, press F10 key to Save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.

By doing this, the Hard Drive in the Notebook will be detected as IDE Hard Drive and you should be able to install XP without any issues.

Please not down that the SATA Native Support option should be set to Disabled even after installing the Operating System in the Notebook.

However, I need to have the Product Number of the Notebook wich can be found printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook indicated wit P/N using which I can find the Hadware specifications of the Notebook and provide the appropriate drivers.

How to install windows it's showing there is no hard disk in the system pls help me


If the BIOS does not detect the hard disk, then reseat the hard disk and then check the BIOS again.
The hard disk maybe faulty, if so you need a replacement.
If the BIOS detects the hard disk and you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I can't install Windows Xp Sp2 For Compaq Presario Cq60 Model. a blue screen error occured after completing the files from cd to ram before entering lience agreement


You need to check your system ram or memory. If you have 2 system ram or memory unplug the other memory and install the windows xp sp2 again. If still having a blue screen try the other memory then run the setup again. Also if you have an extra hard disk drive you can test it that or plug your hard disk drive to the other laptop and run the windows xp sp2 using your hard drive. If you can install the windows xp sp2 on the other laptop that means your hard disk drive are good. If your memory and to the other laptop are compatible plug it and run the windows xp sp2 installer to see and to diagnose what are really causing problem. Have a nice day.

My acer aspire 5002wlmi does not detect my hard drive during windows xp install,but hard drive can be detected and be access when i connect it to a desktop using it as xternal,..what seems to be the...


You can slipstream the storage controller drivers from the floppy disk image you download from Acer's web site into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite.
You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.

You can download nLite at the following link:
http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.

The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:
http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.

Method 1 : Go to BIOS and set anything with SATA disable (usually find under Advance Setting).

Save the setting and reboot.

Windows Xp will detect your hard drive now.

Workable Solution:

this specific model of Toshiba was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

Have windows vista and wanting to install xp


Installing Windows XP on a SATA Drive
Author: DJ Oslo
Date: August 18, 2007
Description:
This tutorial will describe step by step how to install XP on a laptop with a SATA hard
drive in order to downgrade the operating system from Vista to Windows XP SP2. The
laptop model that this tutorial is based on is listed below:
Model: Toshiba X205-S9349
In order to install XP, you will need the following software:
Windows XP SP Installation CD
nLite (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/nLite.shtml)
Introduction:
If you want to downgrade to XP from Vista you may run into a problem during the boot
stage of XP Installation. The problem I encountered was a message that read:
“Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer”
The problem is that XP does not provide the necessary drivers for the SATA controllers
and as a result it won't detect the SATA hard drive. You could use an external floppy
disk drive but that might not guarantee success.
What has been suggested is that you perform a procedure called "Slipstreaming".
Slipstreaming is the procedure where you create a new build of the XP installation files
and "merge" the drivers you need for the SATA controllers. You would then use this
new build to install XP onto your system.
Note: These procedures were performed on my Toshiba P105 laptop, which is my current
working laptop.
Step 1.
Create a directory under My
Documents where you will
copy the contents of your
XP installation CD.
Step 2.
Download the SATA driver that you will need in order to “Slipstream” into your XP
installation.
The following link is to the SATA drivers that will work with the Toshiba X205-S9349.
http://209.167.114.38/support/Download/files_Downloads/pspb7c/Intel-Matrix-Storage-Manager-V1.0.0.1082.zip
Step 3.
When you download the .zip file,
unpack the contents in a new
directory under My Documents.
Step 4.
Open nLite and locate the
directory where you copied
the XP installation files to.
Click on the Next button.
Step 5.
You will get information on the
Product. Click on the next button.
Step 6.
Click on the Next button
Step 7.
In the Task Selection, you will click on
the button called Drivers and Bootable
ISO. After you click on each button the
red dot will turn green. What this means
is that you will “integrate” drivers into
the installation and then create a bootable
ISO file.
Click on the next button.
Step 8.
Step 9.
Click on the Insert – Multiple driver
folder option to select the drivers that
you will integrate.
Locate the folder where you
unzipped the SATA drivers.
Highlight the folder and click OK.
Step 10.
The following drivers will be listed.
Note: you must select the correct driver to
integrate or else you may experience errors
during the installation phase of XP.
Select the first driver.
Click on the OK button.
Step 11.
Select all the items to
integrate. Click on the OK
button.
Step 12.
Step 13.
Highlight all the drivers and click on
the Next button.
Select Yes to start the process.
Step 14.
nLite will now apply the changes
to the installation files.
Step 15.
When complete, it will display how
much the installation grew. Click on
the Next button.
Step 16.
In the Bootable ISO section, click on
Make ISO.
Step 17.
Step 18.
You will be prompted to save
the ISO file. Select where you
want to save it and click on the
Save button.
nLite begins the process of
creating the .ISO file that can
then be burned to CD and used
as the installation file for
Windows XP.
Step 19.
You should get a message
that the ISO file has been
created successfully. Click
on the Next button.
Step 20.
Step 21.
Open your CD burning software. In this example I will use Nero Burning ROM.
Customization is finished.
Click on the Finish button.
In the menu bar, I select Recorder – Burn
Image…
Step 22.
Step 23.
I locate the ISO file that I created in
nLite. Highlight the file and click on
the Open button.
Click on the Burn button. This will now
burn the ISO to CD and thus create your
new XP installation that will install the
SATA drivers during the boot stage of XP
installation. this is 100% working thank very much
