Im not sure why do you want to disable it ...but it is done from bios or ..from the device manager (control panel..) maintenance ...computer management ..)
or ..just right click on my computer ..properties..hardware..device manager ..
In what concerns windows xp ...if you have vista you need a windows xp installer bootable disk , and be sure you download the drivers for xp first ...at least the lan ...so you wil be able to connect and get the others after ...But I will go for getting them first in asafe location in D drive ..or on a stick..
the actual image to make a bootable xp ..you can download from here using utorrent program ..and burn it with NERO...but not open Nero first ..but double click on the image file so to burn itself boot-able way..(nero will just perform at this commend)

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.

Compaq CQ40-108TU unable to install XP OS


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!
