The Foxconn site does not give a Win 7 audio driver. In many cases the Windows Vista drivers will work in Windows 7. You can try the link below to download the Vista Driver. If that doesn't work, you can try a generic Windows 7 AC97 Audio driver from the internet. If that fails, you will need to upgrade your motherboard, or disable the onboard audio in the CMOS and install an aftermarket audio card that Win 7 supports.
The problem is that your version of XP does not have SATA drivers and therefore does not recognise your new drive. Vista does.
If you Google the problem you will find many solutions on how to rectify the situation.
Basically, you have to make a floppy disc with the correct drivers for your Motherboard's hard drive controller. Then, when you launch your Windows XP installer, it will ask you a question about needing to install 3rd party drivers. Yes is your answer. Tap F6 to ensure that the installer doesn't skip.Insert the floppy disc and then after the drivers are loaded, the installation will proceded normally.
The other alternative is to leave your existing XP installation in place and add the new disc.
Later you can clone your old disc onto the new drive and then remove your original disc.
Yes vista will format & install on the new drive. Just make sure if there is an o/s on the old drive that you set up windows vista as a dual boot if you wish to keep using the o/s on the old drive. Hope this helps.
