No, the above are not solutions.
u have to do alot of work if u have to install XP over vista on a SATA disk drive. b.coz XP need driver for SATA drive interface.
You have to provide this driver through a floppy or to add that these drivers in a new setup CD for XP.
after that u can install XP on a SATA drive.

m sorry that i can't xplain here.
for further details pleas mail me

So you want to remove the Vista? But you cant find the hard disk right? Try to change your setting from RAID to IDE in advanced setting.

PM me if it wont work:

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

Hello,

Here is what you need to do to install XP on your laptop that came with Vista or Win 7.

If your hard drive is SATA (pretty much standard these days) you will need to search the manufacturer's site for a floppy disk SATA driver install package.* You will need a USB floppy drive for installing XP.
* Copy the SATA drivers (should be denoted as "F6 drivers" or similar) to a blank disk.
* Have the USB drive connected. It should automatically map as A:\.
* Go into BIOS and find a setting for ACPI Compatible and set on.
* Now install XP normally from the CDROM, and when it says "press F6 to install third-party drivers", press F6 and follow the options to get the SATA drivers from the disk.
* Complete setup as normal.

or

You can check the following link for more detailed info.

Thanks !!

I have toshiba satellite L505-S5990 model.i have installed windows xp by changing the settings in Bios that is sata hard disk enabled as compatable mode from AHCI.if i change to AHCI i can't install...


If you would like to make use of the SATA controller's AHCI features, you should enable this BIOS feature. But please note that enabling this feature requires you to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.
If you do not intend to use the AHCI features, it's recommended that you disable this BIOS feature. This allows you to use the native Windows XP driver. You won't need to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.

There are case where BIOS stting doesn't contain any point of configuration for SATA.,


Step 1 : Download SATA driver

Here is the link : 
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12474/eng/iata621_enu.exe&agr=N&ProductID=2101&DwnldId=12474&strOSs=All&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=eng


Step 2 : Download a software called "nlite"

Here is the link : 
http://home.midmaine.com/~nlite/nlite/nLite-1.4.9.1.installer.exe

Now you need to include SATA driver with Windows XP cd so that windows XP recognize your HARD DRIVE.it can't be include diectly so

Installed the nlite software and follow the instruction by going to the link below.

http://www.nliteos.com/guide/part1.html

Note : Microsoft dotnet framework 2.0 or later is needed to install nlite in Windows XP,but if you are making a bootable Windows XP cd with sata driver pre-install then,you don't need it.

This will 100% recognize your SATA HARD DRIVE.

Hope it will solve your problem.

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.

Why not win xp load in compaq presario cq40


Hi,
The notebook is preinstalled with a SATA hard drive which needs seperate drivers to be installed inorder to get the hard drive detected. The drivers for the SATA can be installed only by using a floppy drive. As the notebook does not have a floppy drive installed, we can either try disabling the SATA native support in BIOS or install the drivers with the help of a USB floppy drive.
Here is the link for SATA driver:
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16759/eng/f6flpy32_85.zip
Check the following document to install SATA dirver without using the floppy drive:

There is option in BIOS called something about automated SATA recognition or similar - disable it. It is under System configuration. And if you are putting new drive in then run full test from BIOS (Hard drive selftest - takes about 79min.)
I tried to reinstall Windows Media center on my HP dv6000 because my previous hdd crashed - When I put in installation cd - it said that it can't find hdd. I spent week to figuring that out. The thing is - as far as you haven't disabled that SATA thing in BIOS - PC doesn't recognize hdd. But only with Windows media center edition. With all other windows xp - there is no such problems. Strange.
