Re: compaq armada 1500c
Is it the Operating System you are trying to install? or the service pack 2 for WinXP?
If it is the OS click on the ASK ME tab under my User ID and leave your contact address, I will send out the 3CD set for compaq Armada/Presario to load the OS and Applications.
If it is the Service pack, don't install SP2, Install SP3 The release candidate 2 is in English, German, or Japanese. Down at the bootom of this link's page, select the language you want and download approx 315mb

I know this problem,
The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own
you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first.
I think this is the correct link
extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD
you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen)
Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list)
you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal)
you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish)
Hope this helps
