Need xp sata driver for gateway m7315u - PC Laptops

    I checked gateway for you, but it seems they themselves do not support XP. However the hardware you got in your computer should have perhaps xp drivers but then one has to search per hardware. So I can only help if you can provide me with the list of what hardware you have, like brand name and version, then I can help you and search all the drivers individually for you.

Canot change win 7 to xp


XP has probably not got the SATA drivers required to find the drive. It is too old.
Have you initialised the new hdd?

I formatted my hardrive and when i want to install Windows Xp it starts fine but then tells me that my hardrive is not installed,how can i fix this? "Setup did not find any Hard Disks Installed in...


Windows XP needs the SATA textmode drivers for it to recognise the SATA hard drive. This can be downloaded from this link:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2391
You will need the SATA AHCI driver

You must then burn the drivers to a CD or copy to a USB stick. When installing windows XP, you will be prompted "press F6" to load additional drivers, at this point the install will ask you to specify where these drivers can be found, if you direct it to the USB or CD Rom (USB is better to avoid disc swapping), it should find the drivers needed and then recognise your hard drive.

The above is a bit academic though, because this does not appear to support Windows XP according to the downloads options on the link

Why my gateway i can't install with windows xp


Is it an SATA HDD? If so, did you press F6 at the very beginning of the XP installation & install the SATA drivers?
or Boot into the BIOS and see if you have an option to use AHCI as a setting for your drive.

I have a gateway LT serires netbook, which i delete a partition on. i accidently deleted windows xp, and now it wont boot. how can i fix this with a flash drive/sd card


Yes it can be done, just follow this
http://www.vandomburg.net/installing-windows-xp-from-usb/
But since your hard disk is a SATA  and XP doesn't support it out of the box you will need to also add to the install stick the correct SATA driver. And since you are doing that you should add all the other drivers.

Are you using sp1? I think that this is the only version of xp that don't support SATA. Then it's time to upgade to sp2 at least.

I want to have xp on my vista gateway laptop


Hello, Its really hard to downgrade from vista to XP on dell laptops. vista and XP use completely different drivers and dell has stopped writing drivers for XP. But still you can downgrade. You need to setup external SATA harddrive from where your XP CD should boot as it wont boot from your current harddrive that has vista. Even if you set these up and downgrade, Since dell has stopped writing drivers your new XP will not work with many new softwares and applications as you wont have drivers for them. I would advice you to use Vista. Good luck, Please rate the solution. ~regards, Jegan

Change geteway laptop from vista to xp


Yes you can but disable the SATA in the BIOS first and after Xp is installed you can install the SATA driver.

XP does not have a SATA driver or a SCSI driver on the CD and you need to interrupt the install process to insert this driver.
Leave the BIOS set to SATA, download the SATA driver and create a floppy with the SATA driver. Boot up the Windows XP install disk and when it asks for a a hard disk driver press F6 (I think it is this key, you have to be quick) insert the floppy with the SATA driver.

Windows xp on Gateway MT6723 laptop


Are you trying to install Windows XP on your laptop that has a SATA drive in the laptop?
And during the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
