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

Windows won't recognize the HDD in my Dell XPS 400.

In regards to installing your new harddrive if you are installed a SATA drive the issue is that not all versions of Windows has SATA drives native on the Windows install CD. So during the first part of the install you will need to press F6 to load the SATA drivers of the driver CD. If you do not have it you can download the drivers from support.dell.com

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Why my acer e500 cannot install 64 bit window 7 it say no driver when need to choose hard disk to install


you need to install Uli sata drivers in order for your motherboard to recognize the harddrive and cd drive.

download the drivers here: http://www.soft32.com/download_184082.html

and put them on a cd or memory card, when the system prompts you that you have no harddrive, you can load the drivers from a memory card or cd however if you use a cd you will face other issues. then you will be able to install windows 7 ;)

I did it on my acer e500 and it runs good.
I didn't install the 64 bits version though but the 32 bits.

for all the people saying that his pc is too old: if the pc can run under vista, it runs better under windows 7

Windows XP does not have the SATA driver on the install CD.
You need to download the SATA driver for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support/download page.
If the laptop has floppy drive, then copy the SATA driver to the floppy and when you boot up with the Windows XP install CD and then press F6 to install the SATA drivers which is on the floppy as instructed..

Hello, Anybody Please help me! I just bought compaq laptop with preinstalled Xp. I want to use Xp and because of some problem in existing XP, I would like to re-install XP professional. When I put CD and...


Serial ATA (SATA) drives are the latest in the hard drive fashion and, in theory, installing Windows on the drive should prove relatively simple. The problem is that Windows XP doesn’t contain the necessary drivers to allow windows to see the drive so that Windows can install it.

I found the procedure below on an XP support website. I have not tried this procedure but after reviewing I fairly certain this should work for you.

1/ Copy the SATA drivers (these can usually be found on your pc or motherboard's support disk. Usually these consist of PIDE/SATA Folders and TXTsetup.oem files. Alternatively they may have been supplied on a separate CD that accompanied your SATA drive, assuming you purchased it separately from the pc.)
2/ Insert the Windows XP CD (full retail version – you should not need to follow these instructions if your pc came with a recovery disk) into the CD-ROM and Reboot your PC
3/ Watch carefully as the Windows XP installation progresses and look carefully at the text at the bottom of each screen.
4/ At the Windows Setup Screen (this should be the second screen after installation starts) you should see, at the bottom of the screen) a message saying “Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver.”
5/ At this point press the F6 button
6/ When the next screen appears press S to specify an additional device
7/ Now insert the floppy disk containing the SATA drivers into your floppy drive
8/ Windows will next ask you to select a driver from the provided list
9/ Select VIA Serial (or whichever controller your motherboard supports) ATA RAID Controller (Windows XP)
10/ The SATA drivers on your floppy disk should now load
11/ After the drivers have loaded Windows XP will recognise your SATA hard drive and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Raid problem


Windows XP does not support SATA you need to load the SATA drivers from the motherboard manuf. You should have a cd for RAID/SATA drivers. When you boot off the XP CD it give you an option to load third party drivers watch at the bottom of the screen. When you see this message you can insert the CD that contains the drivers it is looking for the you should be able to load Windows XP.
I hope this help. Please rate.

My PC don't recognize HD Samsung Sata II 250gb


If you mean the drivers for your SATA harddisk, you should have gotten a CD with your motherboard that contains drivers they might be labeled as RAID, sata, or EIDE controller. when you click that it should prompt you for a floppy disk to put the drivers on, you need to put a floppy disk in drive A and then extract the RAID drivers to your floppy, when installing windows press F6 at the begining of the installation and it will act like it didn't work for a minute and then it will pop up asking you something, you press S and then you will be asked to insert your floppy disk. It might ask you if you want to install the x86 or x64 drivers, x86 is 32bit and x64 is 64 bit, if you don't know which you are using it should tell you somewhere on your windows disk. another option is to get a sata controller that isn't part of your motherboard, it would be a pci-e card and it would come with drivers. I don't know where you could download your drivers from because I think the driver you need is specific to the type of SATA controller your motherboard has in it, but I do know that seagate and western digital have sata drivers available as well for their harddrives so I don't know what to tell you. best shot is your motherboard driver CD.
