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.

You should not need to disable SATA as it is a way to interface with the hard drive. In the BIOS you can disable a hard drive to boot within the boot options.

Do i need (s)ata drivers for toshiba satellite u400? or i can install xp without a problem?


Start your laptop and goto your BIOS and check if SATA setting is available.if available then configured it in IDE Mode or disable it, (if disable option is available).
Now, you should be able to installed windows XP without any problem;

Usually these days,Laptop BIOS comes with little or standard setting;if that is the case;then you will need SATA driver during installation in other to recognise your SATA hard drive.

Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

Thank you.

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.
