You must disable the native mode for the SATA in setup mode.

***NOTE*** be sure that you have all of your drivers for the SATA and all drivers for windows xp before beginning.

SOURCE: problem

Your harddrive is probably S-ATA and xp doesnt have a build in driver for it. You need to download a S-ata driver from hps website, I'm not sure if xp can read the driver from anywhere else but a floppy. So i that case your going to need to buy a USB floppy drive.

Theres a tutorial on how to make the floppy.

If the floppy doesnt work, you might need to copy all the xp files into the hard drive and add the Sata driver into the xp installer, that can be hard todo maybe il give you instructions on that later.

SOURCE: what is this

if you are doing a clean XP install the CD will ask if you if you want to change your partitions.Afterwards it will automatically format the hard drive.Some of the OS discs dont come with drivers you will have to hunt for them on the internet.If you are using a restore disc copyied from a working machine it should have generic drivers already loaded in the disc.

Setup didnot find hard disk


Either you are trying to install XP on a SATA disk - in that case you will need the driver
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/Acer-Aspire-T650-SATA-Driver.shtml
or (if you try to install Vista or 7) the hard disk is dead, replace it.

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:

Check the following document to install SATA dirver without using the floppy drive:

Sata


yes you'll have to format the drive before you put xp on...you can use a boot disk with something like fdisk on it...you can boot using a HIREN boot disk (which has FDISK on it) or Roadstarter which is a bootable CD with a whole host of utilities including FDISK.....
or boot with a windows XP disk and choose the repair with console option ...at the command prompt type in FDISK and you will wipe all the data and partition tables ....giving you a raw data drive to install Win XP to

Driver problem


you need to follow these instructions:

0. Download the XP Sata driver from the support page and create the driver floppy, attached usb floppy drive to laptop: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=
en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3375953&swItem=ob-51454-1&prod
NameId=3375995&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1

1. Power up, hit F10 to enter setup
2. DISABLE SATA native mode
3. Follow the installation instructions in the supplied readme.

If you DO NOT disable native mode for the sata drive, you will end up going around in circles with the XP setup informing you there is no hdd in the laptop, even though you specifically installed sata drivers off the floppy.

Once you get past the "Hit enter to install Windows", you can trash all the partitions on the drive, and recreate one big partition for XP :)

***NOTE*** MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS FOR XP ON A CD AND READY TO INSTALL. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM AT THE HP WEBSITE.

seems that it's a SATA drive and the drivers are not included in XP.
There are some tools available to include these drivers into the XP CD.
Search the net for 'xp-iso-builder' or 'n-Lite'.

This is not necessary if your laptop's got a floppy drive (i don't think so). Then the SATA drivers can easily be loaded by pressing F6 when booting from the XP CD.
