Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I recently had to get another hard drive for my laptop as there was abit of a accident that happened with the other one.
Tried to install Win XP but it wasnt picking up my new hard drive at all in the setup, so just to make sure it was working correctly I installed Vista and that worked fine, with me not having a vista business product key I need to reinstall XP but im worried that if I do it will not work as XP doesnt hold the drivers needed for SATA HDD. I do have a recovery disk that was made in the first boot up of the machine, will installing this solve the drivers issue and install it back to its original state? Or will I have to make a Bootable XP disk with the drivers needed integrated to sort it out?
Thanks in advance
Below are a couple of details
Philips Freevents X55P
Toshiba 160GB MK1652GSX SATA HDD
Need any more info get in touch
Make a clean installation of XP with prior formating the Hard Disk Partition (where you are goint to install it)
For the driver issue, I am not sure if you have all drivers for your MOBO. (included in MoBo CD) and the driver for LAN Card, VGA or other devices drivers.
Let me know in bit more detail of other drivers which you have and have not? Try surfing the website to locate the exact drivers and most of driver you will get with optimum cost.
