Question about Tablets & eReaders
1. CMOS does properly detect drive.
2. XP boots far enough to ask for normal/safe mode
3. Windows logo appears for a minute, then:
4. Gets BSOD: [UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME], then
5. I Boot from XP CD, Recovery option "R" (or install)
6. Then I get that there are no hard drives installed
7. It can go looping like this endlessly.
You have to go to gateway and download the driver for the SATA controller then save it to floppy or cd then hit F6 durning install then it will ask you for the driver. This Tablet will not see a non-gateway cd if you have the one that came with the tablet then you are good, but if not you will need to do this for the current drive or if yo upgrade to newer drive. Hope this get you started, I had this same problem and I thought it was my motherboard was bad because it would not see the hard drive during installation. This fixed my issue with the drive not being seen during installation of the OS.
