I think you mean that when you try to install Windows XP on your laptop, it does not "see" the hard drive. So you need the SATA driver so you can press the F6 key and load it (from a floppy?)?

The newer copies of Windows XP have most Sata drivers within the OS, or the laptop translates the Sata to IDE internally. But assuming this particular laptop has the problem as I said above, I'd need the model number to see if they are available.

Often, if the machine came with Vista installed, they have no XP drivers. In this case I'd look for another laptop that has the same device installed, and see if there are XP drivers for that one. Assuming it is the same part (i.e. Wireless Card, Sound, LAN, etc), the drivers should work on your machine.

Halt error 4 when installing XP on Vista


XP does not have a SATA driver on the installation CD, you need to either download a SATA driver and when XP ask at the start of the installation you need to provide a SATA driver for the hard disk, press F6, the driver is usually installed from the floppy disk. Alternately if your BIOS will allow you to set up the SATA drive as a ATA drive, do so and after XP is installed then install the SATA driver.

My hard disk cant be recognize when i install xp cd to my Acer M1641 with a vista OS. my cable is sata not IDE. how can i convert my vista to XP


You will need to install the SATA drivers for XP. First, download the proper drivers for your SATA controller and put them on a floppy (will properly have to use an external floppy drive). At the beginning of the XP installation you will need to press F6 and install your drivers.
Be aware that there are only a few external floppy devices that XP will recognize. (Sony, IBM are two of them).

Cannot install Windows XP,Vista on Compaq Laptop(FreeDos) V3607TU.


I have two solutions for this problem. the first one is to change the bios settings. the solution is here:  http://techrena.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-install-your-own-wndows-xp-in-hp.html
but for some laptops this setting is not available. so you can try another solution i.e. integrate the SATA drivers in your windows XP cd. this solution is here: http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/01/integrate-your-own-drivers-or.html
