Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I need SATA for me to able to install xp to my acer laptop.
Can you give me instructions on how to properly install it?
Thanks in advance
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.
