Power Management Lenovo Energy Management Lenovo 4.3.1.2 2010-02-01 7.19 MB Windows 7 32bit Lenovo Energy Management Driver Lenovo 3.0.1.4 2009-03-24 3.86M Windows XP HI There,

Go Here:

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=43

Go to the "Energy Management" heading and you'll find 2 different drivers. XP and W7. Be advised, RAID or 3rd Party SATA drivers are most often intended to be loaded onto an old fashioned floppy disk. You'll need to have an external floppy drive attached with the proper floppy you've made to make this work.

Also, VERY important. If you're loading the driver for an XP install, the floppy must have been made on/from an XP OS machine or XP Start-up will not recognise the driver.

Good Luck

    Those two files under the "Energy Management" label, are SATA drivers?

I have problem in asus A8V-vm motherboard in that hard disk is not detected in BIOS but Win-XP is working properly and when I tries to install new windows XP it shows an error that hard disk cannot be...


Asus A8V-VM Motherboard coming with SATA RAID option, thats why you could not see the detected HDD in system BIOS. But you can see the the detected HDD in RAID BIOS. You can enter to RAID BIOS that will pop up after system BIOS. If you are using old version of WinXP it will not detect the RAID controller of you motherboard. Thats why you cannot able to install WinXP. While you booting from WinXP CD press F6 key when the WinXP installer prompted for third party driver. Copy the RAID driver provider in driver CD to a Floppy Disk (INF file) and insert it, hit enter to continue the installation. If you are using WinXP Service pack 2 or higher you do not need this step it will automatically detect the HDD.

Windows won't recognize the HDD in my Dell XPS 400.


hawkdawg

In regards to installing your new harddrive if you are installed a SATA drive the issue is that not all versions of Windows has SATA drives native on the Windows install CD. So during the first part of the install you will need to press F6 to load the SATA drivers of the driver CD. If you do not have it you can download the drivers from support.dell.com

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

FUJITSU MHT2060B-SATA hard drive driver wanted


Get the drivers from the motherboard homepage, extract the file at a floppy or USB, and start WinXP installation from your cd. At the begining at the bottom line is a message like "for ... drivers press F6 to install" Press F6 and after sometime the will prompt you to provide the drivers from the floppy. In the WinXP sp3 the generic SATA drivers are already on the installation cd.

Problem installing windows


you dont need SATA controller drivers..that F6 function is only if you are going to use a RAID setup. That is where you hook up multiple SATA drives in series..So don't hit f6 and just install

Intalling window xp over vista


XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

I have a sata hdd and i want to install winxp sp2 and now during partition message display how can i solve it..????


I have experenced this before. Its because the XP install you have does not have sata drivers compatable with your drive. Two possibilities.
1. sometimes with the BIOS you can change the Sata settings so that XP can see it during setup.
2. Download the sata controller drivers and during the setup. it prompts you to add extra drives with F6.
