Question about HP Compaq nc6320 Notebook
I don't see "Disabling SATA" option in BIOS. There are only two options, Boot sequence and Sound. Is HP dv6040ca upgradeable to XP pro? I've tried removing xp home and reinstalling xp pro from retail CD. As well I tried a latest BIOS and updated AMD driver. Please help me. Seemed HP tech support doesn't know how to do. They keep saying "disable SATA under system configuration in BIOS", but there is no such a thing.
Why disable SATA? SATA native support doesn't allow you to boot from CD.

Firstly, the system configuration is normally in management menu or similair on your programmes menu. If not you will find that the bios menu in most laptops are basic and normally the main settings are hidden; you will need to speak to HP Technical for assistance in that. There is no reason to not be able to upgrade to XP Pro; but with an upgrade you would need to keep your original XP Home installation, otherwise you will need to completely install XP Pro firsly using the format option when you insert the Windows disc. As with most laptops all programmes and drivers are usually on a seperate partition on your hardrive, so be aware you are going to lose all this when formatting, so back up all files and settings. You may also have restore discs, if this being the case all programmes and operating system will be on them, so no need to worry about losing anything from your hardrive apart from your documents. Why do you need to dissable SATA?
