“No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting

Windows XP installation problem


this is an issue after you reset the hdd there ar eno drivers for raid .and it requires drivers for it ...Probably you defaulted the bios too and now , being a sata hdd it is not seen after loading the files and trying to start the catual installation ...it says there is no hdd..
This can be solved by going to bios settings ..at the advanced settings or main...look for something (on the page where the hdd and cd is detected...) called..AHCI...it is something related with the mode of teh hdd detection ...and disable it if it is enabled..let it on auto..or if it is on auto ..do the other way ..
save changes with the F10 ...restart and will be seen in the installation ...after that remember to go on the support page for the drivers ..for Xp..cause non of the actual for vista will fit..and you will need at least the lan connection first to be able to download the others ..

Hi, I have formatted the SATA hard drive in my Gateway GT 5408 with Intel motherboard D945GCFG1. I want to load XP pro instead of the original Vista which was on it. Do I need to change the Bios or install...


No, you do not need to install a new driver as long as that is the same sata hard disk tha used to work in your Gateway computer. Just boot into your windows xp installation cd and let the setup continue.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

There is a book, a friend of mine bought a copy and basically is a Vista 64 problem. It will not allow you to use unsigned drivers without typing in a line of code. It has so much useful data and allows you to tweak Vista just the way you want it and unlock features Microsoft doesn;t even tell you about. The info on the book is below. I'll try to get my hands on a copy and post your solution. Do check the book out, it's probably available through your local library. Here's that info:
