Hi,
Go here and download Matrix Storage Manger for sata drives, you have to select your OS first >>>>>>




http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2101





Once downloaded you have to make a floppy disk or a bootable USB drive so make sure you read all the information first before performing the data transfer to the floppy/USB.
Once your happy that the files are on the media and in the USB port or floppy set the XP install going and watch the screen for the F6 prompt, it will be at the bottom right hand side of the screen and you have to be quick to install the third party drivers.


Good luck.

I want to install windows xp-2 in my laptop presario cq42 notebook, i have a proble with hard drive for sata disable. in this laptop the bios not show the sata disable feature. so i want to disable this...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Not recognizing hard disc drive for windows xp reinstall .


You aren't using the correct install disk . The generic XP install disk can't recognize a SATA disk.You will have to load the appropriate driver during install. Here it is ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32492.exe
Or you could create a custom install disk  as explained here

Intalling window xp over vista


XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

Can not setup windows xp sp3 sata on hp compaq presario v6700


Ok, the problem here is that the Windows XP CD that you have does not have the proper SATA drivers on it already. There are two ways to get around this:

1. Locate the drivers for your SATA controller from HP's website. Copy them to a floppy disk (old 3.5" style) and install the drivers during the installation. When booting up the XP CD, one of the first things it says is "Press F6 to install 3rd party RAID or device drivers". This is where you would press F6. During the install, it would ask you to provide the hard drive controller drivers. Windows XP only allows for these drivers to be installed from a floppy disk, so if your computer doesn't already have a floppy drive, you'll need to get an external USB drive. Once you give XP setup the correct drivers, it can find the hard drive and continue with the installation.

2. Create a custom XP installation CD with the new drivers on it. On another computer with internet, CD-burning capability, and a lot of time and effort, you can slipstream the SATA drivers into the XP CD that you have now. This is not a process for novice users, and can be very time consuming. For a single installation, you're better off with the floppy drive option.

In order to find the correct SATA drivers for your computer, we'll need to know the exact make and model of your computer. The Presario v6700 is a series, there are many models inside of that series. They most likely use the same driver for SATA, but it'd be nice to know exactly which model you have. THis should be printed on the bottom of the laptop.

How to install windows xp sp2 on compaq v3239tu


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive


I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...
